Our Teeth Whitening Procedures
At Edgewood Family Dental, we want to help you achieve and maintain your brightest smile. Our dentist offers both in-office and at home, simple and effective teeth whitening methods that you can do in the comfort of your own home.
Take-home Whitening Trays
Take-home whitening trays are a procedure you can perform in the comfort of your home. You must follow the instructions given by our dentist to see the results. Although they can be a convenient option, obtaining great results can take longer than other treatments and they don’t always work well for deep stains. The trays are made to fit over your teeth and whiten them through a special gel found on the inside of the trays.
Zoom! In-Office Whitening
The Zoom! In-Office Whitening Gel greatly accelerates and enhances the whitening process and will deliver amazing results in as little as one session. Along with the all-new Whitening LED Accelerator, your teeth can become up to eight shades lighter in just 45 minutes! Plus, Zoom WhiteSpeed generates no heat and 99 percent of patients experience little or no sensitivity during treatment.
BriteSmile In-Office Whitening
The BriteSmile in-office whitening system uses a hydrogen peroxide mixture and the power of “cool blue” LED light to whiten your teeth up to eight shades lighter. First, the gum line is protected with an application of vitamin E. Then, the whitening gel is applied to the surface of the teeth. The gel is then applied to the LED light and this accelerates the whitening process of the teeth. This procedure is safe and won’t cause damage to your teeth. Also, If you worry about teeth sensitivity due to the procedure, ask us about a variety of concentrations so that our dentist may customize the treatment to your needs.

Laser Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening has become one of the first requests that dental patients have when visiting their dentist.
Laser teeth whitening is administered in a dental office exclusively and is the most expensive method for whitening. Bleach is applied to each tooth, and heat generated by a laser enhances its effectiveness while ultimately speeding up the process. This procedure uses a strong bleaching gel that the laser activates and enhances for quick, dramatic results. The bleach used is a hydrogen peroxide gel that ranges from 25 to 40 percent in concentration levels. With these high concentrations, special precautions are taken to reduce tooth sensitivity, as well as protect the lips, gums and other oral tissues from being damaged.
Laser teeth whitening takes about an hour in the dental office. Oftentimes, several treatments are needed to achieve the desired results and bleaching trays for home use may be needed as well to improve or maintain those results.
Laser teeth whitening isn't for everyone and is just one option to whiten your teeth. To find out more about teeth whitening, schedule a consultation at Edgewood Family Dental by calling us at 317-787-6160.
