What Happens During a Teeth Whitening Procedure

Discover the benefits you’ll get when you use our at-home teeth whitening system in Woodland.

Have you been contemplating how to get your smile brighter? Have years of coffee drinking left you with some nasty stains? Then it might be time to consider your teeth whitening options in Woodland. Not everyone is keen on sitting in the dentist’s chair for an hour to get a brighter Teeth Whiteningsmile, however. Sure the results are fast, but it’s easy to feel uncomfortable or antsy waiting around for that long.

That’s why your Woodland dentist, Dr. James Zimmerman, is happy to offer an at-home whitening method that’s guaranteed to give you the results you want from the comfort of your own home. No dentist’s chair. No commute to our office. It’s that simple!

How does at-home teeth whitening work?

Dr. Zimmerman believes that custom-made whitening trays are the best option for many of his patients. It is one of the safest and most effective methods for getting whiter results.

To get you started, impressions of your smile are taken when you come in for your dental visit. Customized whitening trays are then made from the impressions we take, to give you a perfect fit that will deliver the bleaching gel evenly to all areas of your smile.

Furthermore, our system’s bleaching gel contains 10 percent carbamide peroxide, an active ingredient that is known to offer outstanding results. In fact, a study published by the Journal of the American Dental Association found that carbamide peroxide offered more dramatic and immediate results than hydrogen peroxide.

What are the pros of at-home teeth whitening?

Wear your whitening trays for one to two hours a day and you’ll definitely start to see results after a few days. Furthermore, for those sensitive folks out there who’ve tried whitening strips and experienced gum irritation, you don’t have to worry about our at-home whitening system. Since we custom-make all your trays, the gel won’t even come close to your gums, preventing any discomfort while whitening.

You may think the cost of in-office teeth whitening in Woodland can be enough to make any patient think twice; however, our at-home system is cost effective taking into account that you can wear these trays the rest of your life, so you’re making a long-term investment for the health of your smile.
