Every smile looks more beautiful and healthy when teeth are sparkling white. However, common habits such as drinking coffee, tea, soft drinks, red wine, or smoking, will often stain or discolor the enamel on our teeth. Our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Cathy Santone, offers two teeth whitening options to brighten any smile with safe, effective bleaching methods: Zoom!® for in-office teeth whitening, and custom take-home bleaching trays.

Zoom!® Teeth Whitening
By receiving a teeth whitening treatment with Zoom!®, patients can brighten their teeth by approximately eight or more shades in as little as about 90 minutes. With Zoom!® teeth whitening, patients can sit back and relax as Dr. Santone and her team oversee the in-office procedure, which can be completed in one office visit. After placing a protective barrier on the gum tissue, a whitening gel is applied to the teeth. Dr. Santone then uses a specialized bright blue light to activate the gel. This activation of the patented whitening gel formula can significantly whiten teeth, and the concentration of the gel can be customized to help minimize tooth sensitivity. Following the procedure, patients will leave the office with a brighter smile, as well as custom teeth whitening trays to help maintain beautiful white smiles! We are also happy to send patients their own before-and-after photos, enabling them to make comparisons and show off their Zoom!® teeth whitening results.

Take Home Teeth Whitening
For patients who prefer complete control and convenience, Dr. Santone offers a take-home method of teeth whitening: custom bleaching trays. These trays provide a convenient (and easy) way for our patients to brighten their smiles at home or on the way to work. Custom bleaching trays provide a quick, simple, and effective take-home whitening option that is 84% stronger than over-the-counter strips. Utilizing our take-home bleaching system is a safe, effective way to restore your glistening smile on your own schedule.
