Brighten Your Smile with Cosmetic Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is one of the simplest and most convenient ways to achieve a more beautiful smile because treatment is fast and leads to dazzling results. But there’s more than one way to whiten your smile. Dr. Shapiro offers his patients from Greenbrae and beyond two whitening options to consider: in-office whitening with Zoom! and take-home whitening with a set of whitening trays. Both are excellent options that can help you achieve beautiful results, though they work in different ways.
In-office teeth whitening with Zoom!
Treatment with in-office whitening takes just a single appointment to complete.We use the Zoom! Whitening system, which uses a specially-formulated gel activated by a special light to give you the results you’re looking for. The process takes about an hour to complete, with results that are between six to ten shades brighter. Zoom! is an excellent choice for patients who need a whiter smile for an upcoming event, like a wedding, graduation, vacation, or job search.
Whiten at Home with Take-Home Trays
For some patients, though, take-home whitening may be a better option than in-office whitening.Take-home whitening produces beautiful results, but does so over a period of days instead of a single appointment.Your treatment will start with us taking an impression of your smile, which will be used to create your customized trays.Then, when your trays are ready, we’ll send you home with them along with a supply of whitening gel. As you go through your treatment, you’ll wear your trays for about 30 minutes each day, with results starting to show in about a week.
What Causes Staining In the First Place?
Stains have different causes, but many are related to the foods and drinks we consume on an almost daily basis.Those foods and drinks include: various sauces, chocolates, coffee, tea, juice, red wine, and more.Other causes include tobacco use, certain medications, and even aging. Using teeth whitening, we can help patients overcome these issues to enjoy better confidence and a more beautiful smile.
