Tooth Whitening

Home Whitening System

Nothing freshens up your appearance like a whiter, brighter smile. The whitening toothpastes at the grocery store just can’t give you the whitest possible smile. Oliverie Dental has been bleaching teeth for over 12 years, and we now recommend the latest in-home whitening technology from Discus Dental called NightWhite and DayWhite. Both are liquid gels that safely and effectively whiten your teeth at night or during the day.

The FDA has recognized the active ingredient in NightWhite and DayWhite, carbamide peroxide, for many years as an oral antiseptic. This technology is also helpful for removing stains caused by food, coffee, tobacco, aging, and other sources.

Today’s bleaching methods are safe for the teeth and surrounding soft tissues, and you can have overnight results! They are fast and simple to use. Maximum results may require bleaching the teeth for two to four weeks. In cases of severe tetracycline staining, bleaching may need to occur for three to six months. The bleaching gel comes in a variety of carbamide peroxide concentrations ranging from 7.5% to 22% strengths.

Zoom2 Tooth Whitening System

If you want your teeth whiter right now, the Zoom in-office technology is for you. The Zoom two-hour whitening system from Discus Dental uses a proprietary technology to whiten your teeth in about two hours. This is technology is seen on the ABC television hit series “Extreme Makeover.” We recommend “jump starting” your whitening process with Zoom, and completing the whitening process with our home bleaching system. Final results may take 14 to 30 days.

The Zoom process is simple, safe, and rarely causes sensitivity. However, patients with extremely sensitive teeth may want to stay with the more gentle DayWhite and NightWhite products.

The procedure begins by painting the lips and gum tissue with a protective coating. We then apply the Zoom whitening gel to the tooth enamel surface, and place the Zoom activation light near your mouth. The Zoom activation light allows the solution to gently penetrate the teeth to remove deep stains and discoloration. In three 15-minute applications, your teeth are dazzling white! Supplemented with the home bleaching system, your whiter smile will sparkle for years.
