Brighten Your Smile with Safe & Clinically-Proven Treatments

Teeth can become discolored for a variety of reasons, including regularly consuming stain-causing foods and beverages, aging, and even taking certain medications. While some people turn to store-bought products, these aren’t always deemed safe for your teeth and can sometimes lead to enamel erosion. Dr. George Salem offers Zoom, Opalescence, and LifeLike in-office and take-home treatments that use clinically-proven, gentle ingredients to offer you with dazzling results in as little as one appointment or two weeks.

Zoom In-Office Teeth Whitening

Zoom teeth whitening is a professional teeth whitening treatment that is done right here in our Braintree dental office. It uses a special light and bleaching gel to remove stains and discoloration from the teeth. The procedure usually takes about an hour and can make teeth up to eight shades whiter.

During the treatment, we will apply a protective gel to the gums and then apply the Zoom whitening gel to the teeth. We will then use a special light to activate the gel and enhance its whitening effects. The gel and light will be applied to the teeth in three 15-minute sessions.

At-Home Teeth Whitening

At-home teeth whitening is a professional-grade teeth whitening kit that can be used in the comfort of your own home. It uses a special whitening gel and custom-fitted trays to remove stains and discoloration from the teeth. The kit includes a set of trays, whitening gel, and instructions on how to use it properly.

To use the at-home teeth whitening kit, you will first need to have custom trays made at our Braintree dental office. This involves taking impressions of your teeth so that the trays fit perfectly. Once you have your trays, you can apply a small amount of the whitening gel to them and then insert them into your mouth. You will wear the trays for a certain amount of time each day, usually for a week or two.

The whitening gel used in at-home kits contains a lower concentration of hydrogen peroxide than the in-office treatment, which makes it safer and gentler on the teeth. However, the results may not be as dramatic as the in-office treatment.

After your teeth whitening treatment, you may experience some sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures, but this always subsides within a few days. Maintaining good oral hygiene, visiting Dr. George Salem and Associates, PC for professional teeth cleanings, and avoiding staining foods and beverages can help prolong your results and keep your smile bright.

How Long Does Teeth Whitening Last?

How long your whiter smile lasts will depend a lot on you and how you care for your smile. We highly recommend staying away from foods and drinks that could stain your teeth including coffee, wine, tea, berries, dark sauces, and condiments. Furthermore, you want to maintain good oral hygiene and brush twice a day and floss daily to keep your smile looking vibrant. With the proper care, some people have noticed whiter results for up to one year.
