Teeth Whitening by Comfortable Care Dentistry
Why Do I Need Teeth Whitening?
Our teeth are covered in a protective porcelain-like material called enamel that over time begins to hold stains within its pores and then becomes more transparent. Enamel is designed to protect the teeth from the effects of chewing, gnashing, trauma and acid attacks caused by sugar. When the effects of these stain-causing assaults set in the teeth begin to turn more yellow and develop a dull, lackluster appearance. The good news is that these stains can be removed with proper hygiene techniques such as regular brushing and flossing combined with regular dental check-ups. More involved stains require the efforts of professional whitening methods like Zoom Whitening or take-home kits.
Zoom Whitening is a popular tooth whitening technique employed in our office that typically takes about an hour to complete. Zoom Whitening uses hydrogen peroxide whitening gel and a special light to brighten teeth up to eight shades. The gel and light work together to break up stains and discoloration and leave the patient with a vibrant new smile that is accomplished in just one short dental visit.
Home Teeth Whitening
Comfortable Care Dentistry offers patients convenient take-home whitening kits developed by Discus Dental, in the forms of NiteWhite & DayWhite teeth whitening products. These products are designed to not only whiten teeth, but also reduce sensitivity, rebuild enamel, fill in surface defects while giving patients a more positive experience all around. These types of kits are only available through our office so that Dr. Kostrzewski can customize the mouth trays to you for the most effective fit. The treatments take about two weeks each and can either be worn at night during sleep (NiteWhite) or during the day (DayWhite).
