Teeth whitening is a procedure that removes stains and discoloration from teeth. Discoloration can be the result of a combination of things: genetics, medication, smoking, the effects of aging, certain foods or drinking excessive amounts of wine, coffee or cola. We can change all this and brighten your smile in about an hour.
Some teeth that are discolored because of tetracycline or excessive fluoride concentration in the drinking water are not good candidates for the whitening procedure. The likelihood of the whitening procedure being effective can be determined by a quick exam by Dr. O’Brien. In our office, we use the ZOOM-II light and system. With the ZOOM-II whitening, your teeth can be up to 8 shades whiter in just about 1 hour. The process is quick, easy, and comfortable. Under the supervision of Dr. O’Brien, our whitening treatments are completely safe and will not harm teeth or gums. Our whitening lasts a long time. This means you will experience very little whitening loss over time if you maintain good dental habits.
