Teeth Whitening for Raleigh, NC Thanks to Dr. Anil Mathew of Brier Creek Family Dentistry
Teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental procedure, and that’s no different among the North Carolina patients at Brier Creek Family Dentistry. Dr. Anil Mathew offers two types of whitening at his practice: Take-home whitening trays and Zoom teeth beaching. Patients often inquire on which method will be best for their smiles and what they can expect from each.
When it comes to home bleaching vs. Zoom bleaching, saying one is better than the other varies by the needs and wants of the individual patients. Dr. Mathew works closely with Brier Creek Family Dentistry patients to help them decide which is best for their individual smiles, but there are a few factors that can be explained upfront.
Home bleaching is completed through the use of whitening trays, which are created for the top and bottom rows of teeth. The trays are custom crafted for your individual smile, which maximizes exposure to the bleaching solution compared to commercially manufactured trays. A whitening gel is poured into each tray and the trays are to be worn periodically over the course of several days. Through this process, the teeth are gradually whitened. Zoom whitening is a one-time, in-office procedure that is completed by exposing the teeth to a low-intensity light activated gel.
Each whitening method from Brier Creek Family Dentistry offers its own unique set of benefits. Patients who want the convenience of whitening at home and over a gradual period of time, may prefer home bleaching whitening trays. The whitening result is typically an improvement of four to eight shades. Patients who want to complete their whitening process in a single visit may prefer the Zoom whitening process; the result of which is an improvement of six to ten shades.
Dr. Anil Mathew is happy to help you decide which teeth whitening option is best for you. For more information or to set up an appointment at the Raleigh, NC practice, visit Brier Creek Family Dentistry ‘s website http://www.briercreekfamilydentistry.com or call 919-598-7081.
