When it comes to teeth these days, white is definitely in. You’ve probably seen the incredible number of teeth whitening products available in your drugstore or grocery store. There are whitening strips, whitening pastes, whitening gels, and whitening rinses. If you’ve tried those products, you may have been disappointed in the results. None of those over the counter (OTC) products have the power of professional teeth whitening from Dr. Dores in Longmeadow, MA.
Using over the counter whitening products is a balancing act – whiter teeth versus possible damage to your gums. The peroxide concentration in OTC products isn’t strong enough to produce quick results. That leads people to use the products again and again which can be harmful and still not get them to the shade of white they want.
People who are using whitening toothpastes may brush too hard or too long trying to get whiter teeth. That can weaken the enamel that protects your teeth which is the last thing you want to do.
OTC whitening products can sometimes produce an artificially white color that make your teeth look unnatural. That’s the last thing you want if you’re interested in your best possible smile.
Forget the over over the counter whitening products and choose proven, professional whitening treatment from Dr. Dores.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
Put your smile on the fast track to brilliant with our professional Zoom! whitening system. Zoom is FDA-approved as a safe and effective whitening procedure.
Your results will vary depending on the condition and current shade of your teeth, but it’s very possible to get up to eight shades whiter in a single in-office session.
The Zoom! Whitening system uses professional-strength peroxide gel that we apply to your teeth. The whitening power of the gel is activated by UV light for outstanding results. Zoom! Whitening can remove deep stains and discolorations that OTC products simply can’t. And Zoom! never produces a fake-looking result. It brings out the natural whiteness of your teeth for a gorgeous smile.
Our in-office whitening program begins with a thorough examination by Dr. Dores. People with decay in their teeth or with active gum disease should have those issues corrected before undergoing whitening.
If all is well, the first step is to protect your lips, gums, and eyes. The gel is applied via a tray that fits closely over your teeth. A series of 15-minute sessions with the activating light follows, with fresh gel applied each time.
In about an hour, your smile can be amazingly whiter!
