Your teeth begin as pearly white but over time, they can change in color. Stains, aging and other factors can darken teeth, which can make them look older and less attractive. While there are many whitening products on the market from toothpastes to strips, they may not provide the results you desire. As part of our cosmetic dentistry options at Southern Oaks Family Dental Care, we offer professional teeth whitening at our dental center in Baton Rouge, LA.
Red wine, coffee, tea, berries, tobacco and many other substances can stain your teeth. The enamel on your teeth is porous and holds dark pigments from dark substances. Even if you brush your teeth regularly, you can notice a difference in the color of your teeth if you smoke or drink coffee or tea every day. To restore your pearly whites, it can require a dental professional to remove deep stains safely and effectively.
Same Day Teeth Bleaching
Most at-home teeth whitening products can require wearing strips or trays for up to two weeks. While some of the professional at-home trays work well, they do require wearing the trays for several days or more. If you want same day teeth bleaching, you need to have a dental professional perform your treatment. At Southern Oaks Family Dental Care, we offer ZOOM! teeth whitening at our office, giving you a glowing smile in less than two hours.
ZOOM! teeth bleaching is performed using a bleaching gel and special light that removes stains from your enamel and dentin. This bleaching method goes deeper for true teeth whitening. The treatment takes about 90 minutes total. Our dental team will carefully add gel to your teeth and adjust the light to ensure even teeth bleaching that will whiten your smile several shades in one treatment.
A white smile looks healthy and attractive. For some people, it can make them appear younger. If you are unhappy with the color of your teeth, bleaching with a professional ZOOM! treatment could be the solution.
