Teeth Whitening

Achieving a bright, beautiful smile is easy with our simple “bleaching” procedure. Our professional teeth whitening is safe, quick, and affordable. Let us know at any appointment if you would like to whiten your teeth. You can choose to lighten only your upper teeth or both upper and lower teeth depending on your preference.

Our custom bleach splints are ready in only a day or two. We provide you with a special bleaching agent that you put into the clear splints. Wear the splints for only a few hours a day, and our special bleaching agent will remove stains from your enamel in no time. The treatment won't alter tooth structure or existing dental work in any way. When your teeth reach the desired brightness, you only need occasional treatment to maintain your new smile. We will take “after” photos at your next appointment.

Teeth whitening can correct tooth discoloration caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Our latest bleaching technology offers a safe method to create a beautiful “brilliant” smile. In cases of severe tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be the only option. However, teeth whitening is nearly always worth trying due to its low cost.

The teeth whitening process begins with taking an impression to make a specialized “mouthguard” to hold the bleach against your teeth. You use the material each night for about 3-4 hours for a week or two. Significant tooth whitening will occur in this period. For very severely stained teeth, crowns or porcelain veneers may be more appropriate.

 

Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening:

  • Corrects brown, yellow, and spotted tooth staining

  • Works for people of any age

  • Near-permanent solution for a “dull” smile

  • Restores brightness and brings a smile to life

 

Considerations for Teeth Whitening:

Over-the-counter bleaching agents are available at drug stores and pharmacies. However, using products that our practice recommends is safer for your gums and teeth.

ZOOM! Whitening

If you're looking for a safe and effective way to whiten your teeth, the cosmetic dentists at Rocky Mount Family Dentistry have the answer with Zoom! Whether you prefer to see immediate results or whiten your teeth while you sleep over a few nights, the Zoom! In-Office and Take-Home Whitening Systems can help you achieve a brighter smile.

The Zoom! In-Office Whitening System uses proprietary technology and a light-activated hydrogen peroxide gel to whiten teeth by an average of eight shades in just over an hour. It's perfect for those who want quick results. On the other hand, the Zoom! Take-Home Whitening System uses a revolutionary gel and can whiten teeth by an average of six shades in just three nights. Additional applications can lead to even lighter teeth.

Unlike over-the-counter teeth whitening products that may take weeks or months to achieve minor results, Zoom! can produce significant improvements in your teeth's brightness in a short amount of time.

If you're interested in Zoom! tooth whitening, it's essential to know what causes tooth discoloration. Common causes include aging, consumption of staining substances like coffee, tea, or tobacco, and certain medications. Anyone can benefit from teeth whitening, but treatment may not be as effective for some as it is for others.

The Zoom! Whitening System is clinically proven to be safe when done under the supervision of a dentist, and it's considered the safest cosmetic dental procedure available. With some post-whitening care, your teeth will remain lighter than before. Zoom! take-home gel, along with Zoom! Whitening Toothpaste and regular flossing and brushing, are professional formula products designed specifically to keep your teeth their brightest.

During the Zoom! In-Office procedure, patients can watch television or listen to music and may even fall asleep. Some people experience temporary tooth sensitivity to cold during treatment, but it usually disappears within a few days after the completion of the treatment.

If you're interested in the Zoom! In-Office or Take-Home System, contact Rocky Mount Family Dentistry to schedule a consultation. Our team will advise you on which system is right for you and how many applications are necessary to achieve the results you desire.
