Did you know that one of the quickest and most cost-effective ways to make a huge impact on your smile is to whiten your teeth? Not only does it give your smile a boost, it can actually take years off of your appearance. Dr. Kenneth Cho and his team offer a couple of effective whitening options designed to update your smile quickly. Here are your options for teeth whitening in Fullerton, CA.
For patients looking for fast and immediate results, we offer the ZOOM! in-office whitening system. We’ll place a protective barrier around your soft tissues and apply a high strength whitening gel to your teeth. We use ZOOM!’s special light to activate the whitening gel. Then we finish with a fluoride treatment to help combat sensitivity. The results are stunning and you’ll leave our office with teeth that are 6 -10 shades lighter than when you came.
For patients who would rather whiten their teeth at home at their leisure, we offer take-home whitening trays. We’ll create custom fitting trays based on an impression we take of your teeth. We’ll help determine the right strength whitening gel for your needs and give you a crash course on how to properly use the trays. Then you’re off to whiten at home, and we recommend that you do so for two weeks initially in order to achieve your desired results. After that, you can purchase whitening gel from our office whenever you need to update your look before that next big vacation or event.
Professional Whitening vs Over-the-Counter
It may seem more cost effective to purchase your whitening system from the grocery store, but here are few things to consider. The whitening gel that we have access to here at our office is a much higher strength than you can buy at the store, so you may have trouble achieving your desired results from an over-the-counter product. We will customize your whitening trays to fit you properly, whereas store bought whitening systems may be ill-fitting, which can cause injury to your gums, cheeks, and lips. It’s also advisable to whiten under the supervision of your dentist in case you should encounter issues with sensitivity.
