Teeth Whitening

in Wayland, Michigan

Anyone can have the confidence that comes from having a bright, white smile. Tooth whitening with Zoom!™ is safe, effective and long lasting. The Zoom!™ tooth whitening system is a powerful, in-office procedure that produces fast, dramatic results.

Dr. Sexton will apply a specialized gel to your teeth using a customized tray similar to a mouthpiece. The customized tray is comfortable, allowing you to hold it in place for about an hour. During that time, a specialized light source interacts with the gel to break up even the strongest stains and discoloration. By the end of your appointment, you will have a smile that looks like it did years ago!

There is also a Zoom!™ take-home whitening kit available. This treatment can be completed in a weekend, and while the results are not as dramatic as the in-office procedure, you will still see noticeable, fantastic results. Talk with Dr. Sexton for help in deciding what whitening procedure is right for you.

Q: I want my teeth to be whiter. Do you recommend at-home or in-office whitening?
A: Dentist directed at-home whitening and in-office whitening procedures are both effective ways of brightening your smile. In either case, your dentist customizes the treatment to ensure your happiness with the results.

Your custom home whitening kit involves a special tray that is customized to fit over your teeth. You also receive prescription whitening gel, which is inserted into the tray before you wear it. Dr. Sexton will give you detailed instructions about how long you should wear the tray each day and you should expect the entire home whitening process to take between two and four weeks, leaving you with a dazzling smile.

If you desire immediate results, visit Dr. Sexton for an in-office whitening procedure. Again, the treatment utilizes a special tray that fits around your teeth. However, with your dentist’s supervision, a much more powerful whitening gel is used, giving you amazing results in just a few hours!

Q: Why should I use professional whitening treatment instead of over-the-counter treatments?
A: There are many benefits to choosing a professional tooth whitening treatment over do it yourself whitening kits.

You will receive a whiter, brighter smile with professional whitening treatment and avoid any uneven whitening which is common with DIY kits. The whitening products sold in the stores also only contain about 3 percent peroxide which is only effective in treating lightly stained teeth. Those who have more severely stained teeth won’t see dramatic results.

White DIY kits are inexpensive, you won’t get the results you seek.

You also want to be aware of any underlying gum disease or oral health problems you need to correct before whitening your teeth. Dr. Sexton will identify and inform you of any issues prior to a tooth whitening treatment. Once your gums and teeth are restored to health you can proceed with your whitening treatment.
