Methods of professional whitening available at Cosmos Dentistry

If you are interested in rejuvenating your smile with professional whitening options, you have two choices to select from:

  • In-office whitening with Philips Zoom. Our office is proud to provide patients with same-day whitening options, such as our Zoom treatment. It is a special light-activated whitening process that gives patients a smile several shades whiter in less than two hours. While this is a more expensive option, you can’t compare the same-day treatment and results that will last several months to other over-the-counter home kits
  • Teeth whitening at home. Alternatively, we offer take-home whitening kits customized for the patient’s smile. These kits include personalized whitening trays with professional-strength teeth-bleaching materials to brighten teeth over several nights gradually. This method is more affordable for patients who might otherwise not want to spend their money on same-day results

What is the best way to whiten teeth?

The whitening treatment you choose depends heavily on your budget and unique needs. Dr. Tokiko Poppe of Cosmos Dentistry will evaluate your smile and determine if you are a proper candidate. Patients with restorations such as dental crowns and porcelain veneers might not be considered as these restorations will not whiten and can stand out as imperfections after brightening the smile. Unless patients are serious about maintaining their whiter smiles and obtaining new dental restorations, we may rule out professional or same-day teeth whitening as an option for these individuals.
