Teeth whitening is a simple, effective cosmetic dental treatment that we offer to noticeably enhance your SMILE IN AS LITTLE AS ONE TREATMENT. Our professional teeth whitening TREATMENTS utilize a powerful and safe whitening gel that is applied to the surface of your teeth. This gel works to lighten the appearance of stains, discoloration and yellowing on the tooth enamel. Teeth whitening is often available in both in-office and take-home systems. Professional teeth whitening can give you a noticeably whiter smile that will boost your self-esteem and help you smile with pride. Let’s take a further look into what our in-office and take-home systems entail.

1. In - Office Zoom Blue LED Treatment.

Philips Zoom Blue LED light-accelerated technology and gel whitens rapidly while Amorphous Calcium Phosphate (ACP) helps deliver enamel protection, improve luster and reduce sensitivity.  This treatment whitens in one visit and is proven to whiten up to 8 shades in 45 minutes!

2. At Home Kits Provided by Dr. Bean

Dr. Bean will provide you with a custom tray specifically for at-home whitening. Instructions for how to put the bleach on your teeth and for how long will be given to you. This option may be better for patients who feel more comfortable in their own home or desire a slower pace for whitening. Even though this process takes place at home, Dr. Bean will help you feel confident and comfortable with the process.

Both in-office and at home custom trays are a great option If you have ever wished that your smile were whiter and brighter. Through these professional teeth whitening options, we can lighten staining and discoloration caused by various factors, such as:

Missing your lower teeth:

As we age, our teeth naturally begin to lose their luster. This is because the thin outer layer of enamel that coats our teeth begins to wear away over time, exposing the yellowish dentin layer beneath.

Poor dental hygiene habits

Throughout the day, plaque and bacteria build up on our teeth, they produce acids that eat away at the tooth’s enamel and dentin. Over time, if these acids are not removed through brushing and flossing, they will continue to damage the tooth’s surface, leading to a loss of shine and eventually to cavities.

Consumption of certain drinks and foods, including tea, wine, coffee and soda

The dark colors and acidic contents of certain drinks and foods can cause the whiteness of teeth to darken, especially if consumed in large quantities or consistently.

Smoking and other forms of tobacco use

The nicotine and tar in cigarettes can cause teeth to yellow and stain over time. Smoking also increases your risk of developing gum disease, which can further discolor your teeth.

Illness

Studies have shown that people who are unwell often find their teeth start to discolor. This is most likely due to changes in the saliva flow, which can cause bacteria to build up on the teeth. The bacteria can then lead to plaque formation and tooth decay, both of which can cause the teeth to yellow and stain.

Certain medications

Some medications, such as certain antihistamines, antipsychotics, and high blood pressure medications, can cause permanent discoloration. If this happens, teeth-whitening is a great option to restore your teeth to their original color.

Fluorosis

Fluorosis is a condition of tooth mottling or discoloration caused by excessive exposure to fluoride. Fluoride is a mineral found in water, food and some dental products.
