Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a process of lightening the color of your teeth using a peroxide solution. At Lifetime Smile, the gel is applied to the surface of the teeth and, in many cases, is activated by a special light that speeds up the process. Whitening does not change the structure of the teeth; it will only lighten their color.

Some patients may see dramatic results after just one treatment, while others may achieve better-looking teeth with repeated treatments. Many over-the-counter products can be used at home to whiten teeth, but the results will not be as significant as those of professional teeth whitening. Additionally, these products do not provide custom-fitted trays that help prevent gum irritation and other common problems associated with at-home whitening kits. Professional teeth whitening is also monitored by a dentist who can help correct any issues that may arise during the procedure.


Why Do Teeth Become Stained?

Many things can stain your teeth over time, from wine to coffee to berries and tomato sauce - even smoking! When the enamel is worn away through any of the above methods, the dentin becomes exposed, which is naturally yellow. The dentin gives our teeth their color, so once the enamel wears down or is lost altogether, it reveals the yellow layer of the tooth. This is why it’s essential to maintain proper oral hygiene and avoid staining foods if possible. Fortunately, teeth whitening treatments can reverse the effects of years of staining and restore your smile to its original beauty.

The Benefits of Teeth Whitening

  • Teeth whitening is non-invasive and painless. The treatment can be completed in just a few visits, allowing you to enjoy your new bright smile sooner!
  • Whiter teeth look younger and healthier. Your teeth are one of the first things people notice when they meet you for the first time, so keeping them looking their best is essential.
  • When stained teeth are whitened, their color is more even overall, creating a more attractive smile.
  • Stained teeth can make you feel less confident in social situations. When you feel confident about the appearance of your smile, you are more likely to smile and laugh around others.
  • You can face the world with renewed confidence and self-esteem with a bright, youthful smile.

How Does Zoom Teeth Whitening Work?

Zoom whitening is a fast, easy, and effective way to whiten your teeth. Your teeth will be noticeably whiter and brighter after only one hour in the dentist’s chair. During your appointment, your dentist will apply the proprietary Zoom whitening gel to your teeth. Then a laser is used to activate the gel and help it penetrate more deeply into your tooth enamel. The treatment is completely painless and comfortable from start to finish. You’ll leave our office with brilliantly white teeth!

You can maintain your newly whitened smile by purchasing a set of customized trays to use at home with your professional strength whitening gel. Simply apply the gel to the tray and insert it into your mouth to treat your teeth while you sleep. After a few weeks of regular use, you’ll be back to having beautifully white teeth.
