Over time your teeth become discolored and appear yellowed rather than their natural shade of white. Tooth whitening or "bleaching" is a safe and effective way to restore your teeth to a bright, white appearance. The whitening methods we offer are long-lasting and will provide you with a confident smile that you may have missing for years. If you are considering cosmetic dentistry or restorative dentistry such as crowns or veneers, you may want to consider tooth whitening as a less evasive method for improving your smile.
The benefits of whitening are as follows:
- Very inexpensive cosmetic procedure
- Changes the appearance of your natural teeth
- No materials attached or bonded to the teeth
- Teeth become whiter immediately
- Whiteness maintained with minor touch ups that are done at home
- Easiest and most basic cosmetic dental application
- Procedure is completed in one visit
Bangor Family Dentistry offers our patients the Zoom! tooth whitening procedure. The Zoom! system is a scientifically advanced, patent pending, tooth whitening procedure. In just over an hour, your teeth will be dramatically whiter. Zoom! tooth whitening is ideal for anyone looking for immediate results. The convenience of Zoom! whitening in comparison to days and weeks of wearing trays and gradual teeth whitening makes it the best option for patients with busy schedules.
If our patients prefer, we also offer an at-home whitening system. Dr. Carreira makes a set of custom fitted trays which are used to hold the whitening gel over the teeth. The at-home whitening process is followed over a period of two to three weeks until the desired results are achieved.
To make an appointment with Dr. Carreira for your Zoom! treatment or to start your at-home whitening, call 207-947-4767 or schedule online today.
