Tooth Whitening

Brighter, Whiter Teeth in Less than One Hour!

Tooth Whitening

Many things we do on a regular basis can contribute to stained teeth. For example, smoking cigarettes and drinking beverages like coffee, tea, cola and red wine can discolor the teeth. Tooth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to whiten and brighten the natural tooth enamel, making it an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile.

Because having a bright, luminous smile is the number one aesthetic concern of most patients, Dr. Ratti Handa offers two great options for achieving a whiter smile.

Zoom!® One – Hour Professional Teeth Whitening

The most popular method for teeth whitening is our Zoom!® One-Hour Professional teeth whitening system. Zoom!® is safe, effective and very fast, and performed only by a dental professional. Our clinician will apply the Zoom!® whitening gel designed to be used specifically with the Zoom!® Light. The light and gel work together to gently penetrate our teeth, breaking up the stains and discoloration. During this time you can relax watch a movie or listen to music. The gel is applied for 3 fifteen minute sessions for a total treatment time of 45 minutes. Finally, you will go home with a brigher, whiter smile.

Take Home Custom Bleaching Trays:

We also offer an at-home tooth whitening system that will whiten teeth dramatically. This method usually requires two visits. During your first appointment, we’ll take detailed impressions (molds) of your teeth. These will be used to create customized clear plastic trays.

During your second appointment, you will try on the trays and adjustments will be made to ensure a comfortable fit. Dr. Handa will give you instructions for using the whitening solution. The trays are worn with special whitening solution either twice a day for 30 minutes or overnight for a couple of weeks depending on the degree of staining and desired level of whitening. It is normal to experience tooth sensitivity when whitening your teeth, but this usually subsides shortly after the treatment is complete. Since the whitening solution only works on natural tooth enamel, we will evaluate whether any old fillings or crowns will need to be replaced after bleaching is complete so that they match the newly whitened teeth.

Tooth whitening is not permanent, and a minor touch-up may be needed every few years.

At the office of Dr. Ratti Handa we are experts with years of experience in tooth whitening. We will help you choose the method that is best for you and will provide after-care instructions to help you maintain your bright white smile. As always, proper oral hygiene, good eating habits and regular dental visits are recommended following your tooth-whitening procedure.

Feel free to contact us with any questions about tooth whitening or to schedule a smile consultation with Dr. Handa.
