Professional teeth whitening
Patients who are faced with a discolored or dingy smile are encouraged to book an appointment with our team for professional teeth whitening. While there are over-the-counter teeth whitening solutions available at the local drugstore, many of these do not provide the results patients want to see in their smiles. Instead, we welcome patients to ask about professional whitening with Zoom!. This whitening system achieves results not seen with anything that can be found elsewhere. This professional bleaching treatments is available and affordable for anyone who wants to brighten their smile.
How does whitening work?
The Zoom! whitening starts with cleaning the teeth to remove plaque and tartar. Then, barrier gel is applied to the gums and bleaching gel is applied to the teeth. A special light activates the bleaching gel and pulls stains from deep within the tooth enamel. Once complete, the gel is removed, and the teeth are cleaned so that the smile shines bright! The Zoom! whitening system brightens the smile up to eight shades whiter in just one visit, something that cannot be obtained with anything over-the-counter.
Imperfections of the smile can be covered with porcelain veneers. This includes:
- Broken teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Permanently stained teeth
- Gaps between teeth
Porcelain veneers are essentially facings that are custom-fabricated to match the existing teeth and are bonded in place over the natural teeth to cover areas that are concerning for patients in an aesthetic sense. The teeth are prepared by filing off a small portion of the natural tooth enamel, and then impressions are made to fabricate the veneers. These restorations are made of porcelain that matches the color, shape, and size of the existing teeth to ensure the veneers look just like the natural smile. Many patients love this streamlined option of having their imperfections addressed while maintaining a natural appearance. This is the goal of many cosmetic dental procedures available at Supremia Dentistry.
How long will porcelain veneers last?
Porcelain veneers will last a decade or longer with proper care. Porcelain veneers only cover the front of the teeth, meaning that it is still at risk for the development of periodontal disease and tooth decay. Therefore, it is essential that patients maintain their routine dental appointments at Supremia Dentistry with Dr. Edmond Suh every six months for cleanings and examinations. These regular visits help ensure oral health and wellness.
