As we age, our teeth can discolor from years of our enamel naturally wearing down and from dietary or habitual choices we make. The wearing down of enamel allows dentin, a yellow color substance that makes the core of our teeth, to show through. This is what gives our teeth a yellowish tint. Teeth whitening can help restore the teeth to a shiny white color through the use of bleach. There are two popular teeth whitening options available through your Peoria cosmetic dentist.
Teeth whitening methods:
The Zoom System: There are two popular teeth whitening options available through your Peoria cosmetic dentist. The first, in-office teeth whitening, produces a significant color change in your teeth in a short amount of time, usually within an hour and a half The procedure is done at our Peoria IL office by applying a high-concentration peroxide gel on the teeth after they have been protected with a special shield. The Zoom System fee is $350. But once you join the program you will be able to purchase tubes of bleach for just $10.00 each!
Forever White: Forever White is a high-quality take-home whitening kit. These whitening kits can only be purchased from your dentistry in Peoria to use at home. The strength of the gel used in these kits is lower than that used for in-office bleaching, and thus, the gel can be applied for longer periods of time. Usually, the trays are worn a 1/2 hour a day for 7 to 10 consecutive days. The fee to begin this program is $250. Patients will also receive free bleach at each 6-month check-up appointment.
Both of these options are fantastic ways to keep your teeth bright and healthy for the world to see. Teeth whitening is affordable and can bring you a more youthful appearance.
