Get a Brighter Smile with Professional Teeth Whitening

If you’re dissatisfied with the color of your teeth, perhaps you’ve tried over-the-counter (OTC) whitening strips or gel pens, charcoal or baking soda toothpastes and/or whitening mouth rinses. While some of these options may slightly brighten discolored teeth, they’re typically only good for surface stains caused by regular intake of tobacco, coffee, tea, wine or colas. If, however, you have stains below the tooth surface, or a combination of both, the best option is to brighten your teeth with professional teeth whitening from a qualified cosmetic dentist! At North Macon Dental Associates, we offer Zoom!® teeth whitening in Macon, GA that uses proprietary, professional-grade bleaching gel to brighten your teeth multiple shades in just one visit!

Comparing Teeth Whitening Solutions

Dentin, the tissue at the core of your teeth, naturally yellows over time as the enamel gets thinner, which leads to discoloration. Whether you have discolored or yellow teeth in Macon, GA caused by aging, foods, beverages or medications, the good news is professional teeth whitening can greatly improve your smile esthetics. Professional teeth whitening offers numerous benefits that OTC methods simply can’t match. While whitening strips and gel pens can brighten teeth somewhat, they often cause tooth and gum sensitivity, and they can even damage enamel with frequent use! Charcoal toothpastes aren’t recommended, because they contain abrasive ingredients that can remove enamel from your teeth without any whitening effect. Toothpaste with baking soda is safer for removing surface stains, but it can take two to six weeks to notice a minimal difference. With almost all OTC methods, it may take weeks or even months for results to show, and even then, the brightening effect is usually quite subtle.

Choose From These Effective Options

We offer Zoom! Whitespeed™, an in-office whitening procedure that is clinically proven to deliver a beautiful smile up to eight shades whiter … in just 45 minutes! This fast, easy and highly effective whitening solution from Philips reverses stains caused by food and drink, aging, and even some medication-related discoloration. During this procedure, we protect your gums before applying the hydrogen peroxide whitening gel to your teeth. Philips Zoom Blue LED light-accelerated technology applied to the patented gel enables rapid whitening. Amorphous calcium phosphate (ACP) in the gel delivers enamel protection, improves luster and reduces sensitivity. We repeat this process three times during your 45-minute session, and apply the gel afterwards to help protect your tooth enamel and reduce any sensitivity. In addition to in-office treatment, we offer convenient take-home Zoom! teeth whitening. It may take several weeks to achieve the desired level of whiteness, and you need to take an active role to ensure the best possible results. First, we take a mold of your teeth to create thin, flexible plastic mouth trays, customized to fit your upper and lower arches. Each kit has a different strength formula and we’ll advise you on the best one to use based on your degree of discoloration. Before you leave with your at-home whitening kit, we’ll show you how to fill the trays with whitening gel and position them correctly over your teeth. In general, if you maintain a good oral hygiene routine, undergo regular professional cleanings and minimize the use of teeth-staining foods and beverages, your teeth have the potential to stay dazzling white for a long time with either method!
