If your smile is not as bright as you would like it to be, then whitening may be a good option to consider.
Staining is commonly caused by aging, defects within the tooth, use of certain antibiotics during tooth
development, and smoking. In addition, your diet can affect the brightness of your smile. The following foods
and beverages often contribute to tooth stains on or beneath tooth enamel: coffee, tea, red wine, colored
juices, curry, soy, cola drinks, and minerals in well water. Luckily, our doctors can offer you two options in
restoring your beautiful smile: in-office and take home whitening.

OPTION 1: ZOOM! and BriteSmile In Office Whitening
The major benefit of in-office ZOOM!
whitening is significant color change in a
short period of time. During this procedure
we apply whitening peroxide gel to the teeth
after the gums have been protected with a
special coating and use a special light that
activates the whitening gel. Generally, the gel
remains on the teeth for several 15 minute
intervals that add up to an hour. Depending
on the severity of your staining, you may
have to return for additional whitening
sessions, or use a home whitening system.

OPTION 2: TresWhite Take-Home Whitening
Our take-home kits feature whitening gel
and ten trays that need to be applied to your
teeth for a short period of time daily. With
this system you should be able to see the
results within 5 to 10 days. Because
take-home whitening gel is less powerful
than the in-office version, it produces the
best results over the longer period of use.
