Look younger, and boost your confidence with a whiter, brighter smile. One of the easiest ways to restore vitality to your smile is to whiten your teeth. Forget the sticky mess that store bought at-home kits leave you with. The Shoreline Dental Studio offers several convenient options to fit your needs.
In-office whitening methods, such as Zoom! Advanced Whitening, are great options for achieving a whiter smile in just minutes. Zoom! Advanced Whitening lightens the color of your enamel by an average of 8 shades in just one visit! We cover your lips and gums (to protect them from damage) and apply a special whitening gel containing hydrogen peroxide to your teeth. Then, a special light is used to activate the hydrogen peroxide, which helps the gel penetrate the surface of the tooth for better results. You can get a whiter smile in approximately one hour.
For a more gradual process, we also offer custom at-home whitening kits. You are given trays designed using molds of your teeth to ensure comfort and proper fit and a professional-grade whitening solution that you wear daily, as directed. Patients start noticing a difference within the first two weeks of treatment.
What Makes Teeth Yellow?
Teeth can either have extrinsic stains or intrinsic stains. Extrinsic stains are present on the surface of the tooth and are usually caused by consuming heavily pigmented foods and drinks, such as blueberries, curries, carrots, coffee, wine, or colas, or by tobacco use. Intrinsic stains are present inside the tooth and are more difficult to remove.
Does teeth whitening work?
Professional teeth whitening can safely remove surface stains to brighten your smile. With products like Zoom! Whitening and Laser Whitening, we can lighten your teeth 10 to 12 shades to give you a more youthful appearance. Keep your smile white with good oral hygiene, regular dental checkups, and by limiting the consumption of staining food and drinks.
What makes professional kits better?
The kits you buy at the drug store are not nearly as strong as professional-grade whitening kits. They are also more likely to irritate the soft tissues in your mouth because they are not custom fitted to your teeth.
