Are your teeth stained or discolored? Do you wish for a brighter, whiter smile that you can be proud of? If so, our professional teeth whitening services might be what your smile needs. Dr. Mark L. Pitel is pleased to offer both Zoom!® in-office whitening and at-home teeth whitening.

With Zoom! whitening, your whitening treatment will be customized to your individual needs. Our dentist will place the whitening product directly on your teeth and then use a special light to activate the bleaching agents. Zoom! whitening is gentle, so even those with sensitive teeth can whiten their smiles.

If you choose at-home whitening, our dentist will supply you with custom-made bleaching trays and a gel bleaching solution. Wear the trays and gel as prescribed by our dentist.

The results of teeth whitening are not permanent. Patients who expose their teeth to staining foods and beverages may see the brightness of their smile begin to fade after as little as one month. On the other hand, if a patient avoids foods and beverages that can stain the teeth, their whiter smile may last for up to a year, or even longer. At this point, the patient may wish to have another whitening treatment or a touch-up treatment.
