Everything you need to know about teeth whitening!
At Timeless Smiles, we offer two types of teeth whitening. We have an in-office option or a take-home option.
What’s the difference between the two?
With the in office Zoom whitening you will see results in just one appt. whereas, the take home will take up two weeks for maximum results.
What is the procedure for the Zoom in office?
First, we isolate lips, cheeks, tongue and gums so that the only thing exposed to the light are teeth. The whitening gel is then placed on the teeth. The Zoom light is lined up to the mouth to help activate the whitening gel. The light is used for 4 /15 minute cycles, at the start of each cycle new gel is used. Molds of your teeth are taken to make customized trays for touching up at home along with a tube or whitening gel. These are included because you will need to touch up in order to maintain that pearly white smile! We also, will take before and after pictures so you can see how much your teeth brightened up! In just 45 minutes, Zoom can whiten your smile up by 8 shades!! Amazing, huh?
What is the procedure for take home whitening?
The assistant takes impressions of your teeth and customized trays are made. We supply tubes of whitening gel and instructions are given. The trays are to be worn 30 minutes a day for 14 days. If you would like to continue to touch up you can always get extra gel at our office 😊
What are the Pros and Cons to take home vs. in office whitening?
Zoom is great for someone that’s looking for instant results for a special occasion like a wedding, prom or the holidays. Zoom is done in 2 hours vs. 2 weeks for take home. Both will give same results but Zoom gives faster results. The in office cost will a little more because the procedure is in the office vs. at home where you do it yourself.
Both options will offer great results!
