Teeth Whitening: Key to a Brighter Smile
Teeth Whitening in Las Vegas
Having dull and discolored teeth can significantly affect one’s confidence and self-esteem. Various factors can cause discoloration and stains, leaving individuals self-conscious about their appearance and searching for ways to restore the natural whiteness of their teeth. Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry teeth whitening options help brighten and rejuvenate smiles.
What is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure to lighten the tooth color and remove surface stains. You can achieve it through various methods, including at-home kits, in-office treatments, or a combination. While many people desire whiter teeth for cosmetic reasons, the process can also improve self-esteem and confidence.
What Causes Tooth Stains?
The color of teeth can be influenced by several factors, including aging, genetics, certain foods and drinks (coffee, tea, and red wine), smoking, and certain medications. Teeth whitening can help to remove these discolorations and restore the natural whiteness of the teeth.

Teeth whitening trays are a low-cost and convenient option for whitening your teeth at home. The trays are designed to fit your teeth perfectly, and you apply the gel and wear them for 30 minutes to an hour each day. Results may take several weeks, but the process is less expensive than in-office treatments.
Unlike store-bought whitening strips, whitening trays whiten teeth and provide maximum comfort. The process takes ten to fourteen days, with possible results in as little as three to five days.
Zoom Teeth Whitening treatment is an in-office treatment that uses a special light and a hydrogen peroxide gel as a bleaching agent to whiten teeth quickly. It is a great option that can help get your teeth up to eight shades whiter in as little as one visit. It’s the #1 patient requested professional whitening treatment because it not only works, it works really well.
The Philips Zoom system is supervised by our team and is safe and customizable. It makes use of desensitizers — to reduce sensitivity and protect tooth enamel — and has intensity settings that can be adjusted to ensure your comfort.
However, not everyone is a good candidate; a dental consultation is recommended before the procedure. Sensitive teeth, gum disease, or other oral health issues may prevent someone from being eligible. Discussing the options with a dentist and weighing the risks and benefits before whitening teeth is best.
Opalescence Go is a professional alternative to over-the-counter whitening kits. It’s a simple, fast, and great-tasting way to whiten a smile that does not require impressions or custom trays. We use it because of its low cost, simplicity, and ready-to-go right out of the package.
