When it comes to improving the appearance of your smile, nothing is easier, faster, and more impactful than teeth whitening. Why live with yellow staining from aging, tobacco, dark cola, tea, coffee, or red wine if you don’t have to? Here at Island View Dental, we offer several professional teeth-whitening solutions, each customized to fit your unique smile needs.
In-Office Teeth Whitening with Philips Zoom!
Our Grand Island dental office offers Philips Zoom for in-house professional teeth whitening. During a single appointment, a member of our dental team will apply the Zoom Chairside Light-Activated Gel to the surface of your teeth. The proprietary formula greatly accelerates and enhances the whitening process, and delivers dramatic results in a short amount of time. Along with the all-new Whitening LED Accelerator, your teeth can become up to eight shades lighter in just 45 minutes!
The gel and light work together gently to break up the stains on your teeth, while leaving the structure of your teeth unchanged. After just three 15-minute applications in one hour, you rinse and the treatment is complete, leaving you with a brighter, whiter smile.
Take-Home Teeth Whitening
For your convenience, we also offer take-home teeth whitening treatments. The whitening agents are professional strength and available at our Grand Island dental office.
Tray bleaching is a type of professional whitening that uses custom-made trays and whitening gel. The whitening gel is placed in custom-fitted trays that fit perfectly over your teeth. As the peroxide in the gel breaks down, hydroxyradicals help whiten stained teeth. At-home professional tray whitening generally takes ten to 14 days, although you may notice results in as little as three to five days.
Professional-strength Crest Whitestrips®
Teeth-whitening strips are thin, flexible plastic (polyethylene) strips with a thin film of hydrogen peroxide on one side. Whitening strip kits come with two types of strips: strips for the upper teeth and strips for the lower teeth. The whitening agent is applied by placing the strips across your teeth and gently pressing the strips to ensure contact with all your teeth. Teeth-whitening strips are typically worn for 30 minutes a day, twice a day. The duration of treatment will vary.
