Tooth whitening is a common cosmetic dentistry procedure that provides effective results to brighten stained or dull teeth. According to the FDA, whitening restores natural tooth color and bleaching whitens beyond the natural color.
Custom Whitening Trays
At George Lundstrom, DDS, we can make you customized trays to apply professional strength whitening gel. To apply the gel, squeeze a drop into the tray for each tooth surface. Whitening gels vary in strength, so be sure to follow the directions given to you by Dr. George Lundstrom. In as little as 20 minutes a day for one week, you will see results. This process can erase most stains from coffee drinking and tobacco, as well as tooth yellowing associated with aging, producing a brilliant, bright white smile.
Zoom! In-Office Whitening
There is also an in-office treatment that provides a faster result. Zoom! whitening is safe and proven to whiten teeth up to eight shades. Zoom! is only available at a dentist’s office to ensure optimum safety, and comes in different treatment types and strengths to fit your lifestyle and sensitivity.
Alternatives To Whitening
Teeth whitening may not be an appropriate treatment for all stains. For hard-to-treat stains, porcelain veneers or crowns are a better option.
