At-Home Teeth Whitening
Many people don’t realize it, but you can get an at-home teeth whitening kit at your local dentist. This dentist-supervised kit includes a mouthguard and a powerful whitening agent. Unlike over-the-counter teeth whitening kits, the dentist-supervised kit is customized for your teeth. Over the course of a few weeks, the kit bleaches your teeth, leaving them gorgeous and white. Your dentist supervises the process to ensure your teeth and gums stay healthy throughout.
Zoom Teeth Whitening
If you have a big event coming up, you can’t wait a few weeks for bright and gorgeous teeth. You need fast results, so Zoom whitening is the right choice for you. This takes place in the office, and you’ll have white teeth in around an hour. It’s truly transformative.
Zoom teeth whitening starts with an exam. The dentist needs to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy and ready for the procedure. In some cases, you might need to get a cleaning prior to the procedure.
Then, your dentist will be ready to move forward with the procedure. He or she will use cheek retractors and cotton rolls to prevent your top and bottom teeth from meeting.
Then, the dentist will use an agent to protect your gums and start the Zoom whitening process. A layer of the whitening agent will go on your teeth, and then your teeth will be exposed to a laser light. You’ll undergo the laser treatment for 15 minutes, and then the dentist will come back in and repeat the process. After four 15-minute sessions, you’ll be ready to go home with sparkling white teeth.
How Much Does Teeth Whitening Cost at a Dentist?
The cost of teeth whitening depends on the option you choose. While in-office and dentist-supervised teeth whitening are more expensive than at-home kits, they are more cost effective because of the results. People tend to go through countless over-the-counter kits as they attempt to achieve the desired results. Dentist-supervised and in-office teeth whitening provide the results you want the first time.
