Teeth Whitening in Ipswich MA
Brighten Your Smile!
Teeth may become discolored for a variety of reasons including diet (e.g. drinking coffee and red wine), smoking, tooth decay, tartar build up, trauma, and/or use of some medications. While there are many options for improving the appearance of discolored teeth such as having regular cleanings and brushing regularly, and avoiding certain foods and drinks – professional whitening is an option that may be necessary depending on the needs of the patient. We offer several options for professional whitening using the Philips Zoom in-office and take-home whitening system.
With this method, the color of the teeth is lightened by placing a whitening solution on the outside of the teeth. After placing a rubber seal around your teeth to protect your gums, a whitening gel is painted onto your teeth and a special, bright light is pointed at them. This light speeds up the whitening process.
Your dentist may suggest that you whiten your teeth at home. This involves taking an impression of your mouth in the office so that a custom bleaching tray can be made. At home, you insert a whitening gel provided by your dentist into the tray, which then holds the gel against your teeth
