At Home Whitening

Some patients prefer to whiten their teeth over time at home. Our highly skilled dentists can make impressions (molds) of your upper and lower teeth. These are used to make models of your teeth. We then make custom-fitted whitening trays for your teeth. At a second appointment, we demonstrate how to apply the whitening gel in the trays. Typically, patients wear these trays for one hour each day until the desired results are achieved. This usually takes 2-3 weeks.

Call us for more information. Now you can achieve the dazzingly white smile you’ve always dreamed of!

ZOOM Whitening

In-office bleaching provides the quickest way to whiten teeth. With in-office bleaching, the whitening product is applied directly to the teeth. These products can be used in combination with heat, a special light, and/or a laser. Results are seen in only one, 30- to 60-minute treatment. But to achieve dramatic results, several appointments are usually needed. However, with in-office bleaching, dramatic results can be seen after the first treatment.

Teeth whitening is one of the most requested services at Gentle Dental. Your teeth will darken over time. Beverages such as coffee, tea, and soda and factors such as childhood medications or illnesses, tobacco use or improper oral hygiene can have an affect on the color of your teeth.

At home whitening often does not provide the results patients are looking for. As trained dental professionals, Gentle Dental implements industry-approved techniques to gently and safely whiten your teeth. And with many of our offices offering ZOOM! Whitening, your teeth may be able to be whitened on your lunch break!
