When it comes to tooth whitening methods, there are many different options and methods to help you get your whiter smile. Many over the counter methods promise quick results but usually cannot back up these claims. Whitening toothpaste would need to be left on the tooth for a much longer time than it takes to brush for them to be effective. Whitening strips are common, but can often deliver an inconsistent whitening to the teeth since each mouth is uniquely shaped.
At Dental Care of Muskogee, we proudly use the state of the Zoom! Whitening system to help our patients get their whitest smile. An in-office treatment can help you quickly get your teeth several shades whiter in just one visit. After applying the advanced whitening gel, a special blue LED lamp is used to speed up the whitening process. This can be repeated several times to ensure the proper shade is achieved.
For at home use, we can also help create a custom whitening tray for you to use. Custom trays are ideal because they will help you achieve a more consistent whitening and also works to stop the whitening gel from hurting the gums. At home, custom whitening trays are also an ideal follow up to getting an in-office treatment as a way to keep your teeth white.
No matter what your teeth whitening goals are, we can help you achieve them! Before using any over the counter whitening products, we recommend consulting with your dentist.
