Dr. Mitchell Olson can help you effective whiten your smile with ZOOM in-office whitening or our Opalescence® take-home treatment.
ZOOM Teeth Whitening
Do you want to zoom in one hour?
The ZOOM in-office whitening system is a revolutionary tooth whitening procedure. It’s safe, effective, and fast—very fast. In just over an hour, your teeth will be dramatically whiter. ZOOM whitening is ideal for anyone looking for immediate results. The convenience of ZOOM in comparison to days of wearing trays and gradual whitening makes it the perfect choice for the busy individual.
Get ready to ZOOM
The ZOOM whitening procedure is simple and painless. It begins with a short preparation to isolate your lips and gums. The ZOOM clinician then applies the proprietary ZOOM whitening gel, which is activated by a specially designed light. Teeth typically become at least six to ten shades whiter, sometimes more. A five-minute fluoride treatment completes the procedure. You’ll be amazed with the results. In most cases, teeth get even whiter the first few days after the procedure.
How does the ZOOM in-office system work?
The ZOOM light-activated gel was developed after years of research by Discus Dental, the leaders in professional take-home tooth whitening. The gel is a scientifically formulated, pH-balanced hydrogen peroxide that, when activated by the ZOOM light, gently penetrates the teeth to remove deep stains and discoloration. With proper care and an occasional touch-up at home, your whiter smile will sparkle for many years.
Opalescence Teeth Whitening
How does it work?
We will take impressions of your teeth that will allow for custom trays to be made for your bleaching procedure. The Opalescence gel is placed in thin, comfortable trays and fitted over your teeth. As you whiten your teeth, carbamide peroxide is broken down and oxygen enters the enamel and dentin. This bleaches out the discolored areas. The structure of the tooth is not changed. The color of the tooth is simply made lighter.
Is it safe?
Whitening your teeth, under our supervision, has been proven safe in clinical studies over a period of many years. The primary ingredient in Opalescence is carbamide peroxide, which has been safely used to brighten the smiles of millions of people worldwide.
When will I see results?
Results are often seen after one night. Optimum natural whiteness usually occurs when the process in continued for a week to 10 days. We will go over what you can expect for your individual situation.
How do I keep my smile white?
After you have the smile you have long desired, it is important to keep it that way. Practice good oral hygiene and always remember to brush after consuming staining food or beverages. Opalescence Whitening toothpaste is a wonderful product for maintaining your bright smile. It not only whitens, it offers a higher fluoride uptake than any other toothpaste.
