The Zoom!™ whitening procedure is simple and painless. It begins with a short preparation to isolate your lips and gums. The Zoom!™  clinician then applies the proprietary Zoom!™  Whitening Gel which is activated by a specially designed light. Teeth typically become at least six to ten shades whiter, sometimes more. A five minute fluoride treatment completes the procedure. You’ll be amazed with the results. In most cases, teeth get even whiter the first few days after the procedure.




How Zoom!™  Works!
Back to Top

The Zoom!™ light-activated gel was developed after years of research by Discus Dental, the leaders in professional take-home tooth whitening dentistry. The gel is a scientifically formulated, pH balanced Hydrogen Peroxide that, when activated by the Zoom!™ light, gently penetrates the teeth to remove deep stains and discoloration. With proper care and an occasional touch –up at home, your whiter smile will sparkle for years.




Teeth Whitening

How would you feel if your smile was a bit brighter than it is right now? Whiter teeth not only look sensational, they build the kind of inner confidence that really gives a smile its electricity. And you might be surprised that simple, affordable cosmetic treatments can offer to do just that.

You may have seen TV advertising for toothpastes that whiten your teeth. The results can’t match what we can do for you. Professional tooth whitening in my office effectively lightens brown and yellow enamel discoloration. We use a special gel inside a custom-made tray that covers your teeth.




Choosing Tooth Whitening for your Smile
Back to Top

Advanced dental techniques now available at Family and Cosmetic Dentistry can provide you with exciting, new options for enhancing your smile. Revolutionary methods are now available for bleaching teeth to make smiles sparkle!

Teeth bleaching or whitening lightens the color of teeth whether darkened from age, coffee, tea or tobacco. Its brightening effects can last up to five years after the treatment depending on your personal habits, such as smoking or drinking coffee or tea.

Bleaching has a higher than 90% success rate at Family and Cosmetic Dentistry. Bleaching is tough on stains but gentle on your teeth!  Results vary depending on several factors such as teeth stained from smoking; from taking certain medications such as tetracycline during tooth development; or from fluorosis, a condition occurring in the presence of too much fluoride.

Bleaching will not lighten fillings or artificial materials used in dental repair as for crowns, porcelain veneers, etc. Dr.O’Braitis may discourage treatment if you have sensitive teeth, periodontal disease, teeth with worn enamel or if you're pregnant or breast-feeding.

Options for Tooth Whitening
Back to Top

Depending on the bleaching treatment selected, some are performed in the dental office using an in-office bleaching system such as laser bleaching. These methods lighten teeth instantly. The same results may be obtained through dentist-supervised at-home bleaching, but take longer to achieve.

Some bleaching systems, which bleach your teeth while you sleep, work in 10 to 14 days (or more accurately nights)! Others bleach your teeth from two to four hours a day requiring three to six weeks to complete.

Also it's important to know that certain types of stain respond better to different types of whitening materials. In such cases, your dentist may recommend one method over the other.

Brighter Smile Steps
Back to Top
  • Dr. O’Braitis will first examine your teeth and gums and discuss the procedure best suited to your individual needs.  Any cavities or gum problems must be treated before bleaching can begin.
  • The in-office method generally takes one to three hours and results in an immediate noticeable change.
  • For the at-home method, special molds will be made of your teeth at Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, these are used to make custom-fitting flexible trays holding the bleaching gel comfortably in your mouth.
  • When you get your bleaching trays at Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, you'll receive instructions about wearing them. These must be carefully followed. Only the materials provided by the dentist can be safely used.
  • After completing the treatment, your teeth will be checked by Dr. O’Braitis to discuss the results.
  • Smile. Your teeth will radiate a bright new look!

Is Tooth Whitening Safe?
Back to Top

Research over the last five years has proven bleaching to be both safe and effective. The American Dental Association's seal of approval has been given to a wide range of tooth whitening products.

Generally, the only side effect from treatment may be some sensitivity to hot and cold foods. If this occurs, sensitivity normally disappears within 48 hours.

Please don't hesitate to call Family and Cosmetic Dentistry at (949) 481-9400 with any questions you may have about the benefits of tooth whitening or tooth bleaching for a whiter smile.
