Teeth Whitening, or bleaching, is a safe and very popular way to give you a whiter, more confident smile fast. There are a variety of techniques that we have available at our office to provide a whiter smile from convenient, custom take-home bleaching kits to porcelain veneers for teeth stains and discoloration that will not respond to bleaching products.
If you have stained or discolored teeth, Dr. Sousa will evaluate the cause of your discoloration and work with you to determine the best treatment option for your goals.
Dr. Sousa offers the Zoom® in office whitening system for a quick smile makeover with often dramatic results. In about an hour, your teeth will be up to 8 shades whiter using the unique Zoom products, which reduce sensitivity and protect the enamel of your teeth.
Teeth Whitening What to Expect
In Office Whitening with Zoom
ZOOM™ professional tooth whitening is the hottest technique available to dental professionals. During your treatment, we will first isolate the teeth we plan to whiten and then apply 4 x 15-minute applications of the ZOOM™ whitening gel that is then accelerated by the ZOOM™ light.
You can relax with headphones and an iPod while your teeth are whitening in just over 1 hour! You are also provided with whitening trays that you can then apply additional whitening gel to maintain your bright new smile!
The results are permanent; however, everyone’s teeth will get darker over the years (whether or not they have ever whitened their teeth). Provided you take care of your appliances, and only minor changes are done to your teeth over the years, you can simply purchase a professional touch up kit for less than what it costs for a good haircut to help keep your smile beautiful and white!
Take Home Teeth Whitening
At-home whitening systems can be bought in stores, but they cannot compare to the predictability and results of professionally provided whitening systems. Our take home teeth whitening kits include custom fit bleaching trays and professional grade products for a consistent, safe and lasting result. A brief visit for impressions to be used in the creation of your custom set of trays is all that is needed. You can whiten your teeth gradually in the comfort of your home.
