If you feel like it is time to upgrade your smile, teeth whitening can be a fast, convenient solution for stained or discolored teeth. Dr. Colleran in San Luis Obispo, California can take a dull, worn out smile and rejuvenate it by up to 8 shades in less than an hour with ZOOM! in-office whitening.
Your smile is an important part of who you are. It helps express your personality to others. However, it is normal for teeth to stain over time, which can make you feel less confident when smiling.
The process takes about 45 minutes and most patients report little sensitivity during the procedure. After treatment, Dr. Colleran may recommend using special toothpaste to help alleviate sensitivity or otherwise protect your teeth. Patients love the results they see in just one visit. Compared to over the counter gradual whitening, ZOOM! is perfect for busy people just like you.
Results vary based on your behavior. It is important to be aware of how teeth discolor. It is normal for teeth to discolor with age, but there are also avoidable factors such as consuming foods and drinks that can stain. The main culprits of a dull or discolored smile are tea, coffee, red wine and tobacco. Therefore, the lasting effects of your teeth whitening treatment vary from patient to patient. It is important to avoid staining agents after your treatment in order to have longer lasting results.
If you are worried about the potential cost of teeth whitening, we want you to know we offer our patients in-office financing options to help get you the smile you want.
