Dr. Moche provides conventional and Zoom teeth whitening. Upon request, Dr. Moche will provide a consultation to assess the options most suitable for you. Be aware that teeth whitening is ideal for patients who have healthy, unrestored teeth (minimal fillings) and healthy gums who would like a brighter smile. Patients with yellow tones to their teeth respond best. However, this cosmetic procedure is not recommended for everyone, such as those with gum disease and certain types of restorations.
A convential method of teeth whitening is with dentist-supervised at-home bleaching products. Dr. Moche will take an impression of your teeth and make a customized mouthpiece tray. This customization allows for maximum contact between the whitening gel, which is applied to the mouthpiece tray, and the teeth and minimizes the gel’s contact with gum tissue.Over-the-counter whitening products contain a mouthpiece tray, but with a “one-size-fits-all” tray can rritate the gum and soft tissue by allowing more bleaching gel to seep onto these tissues. With in-office procedures, the bleaching agent is applied directly to the teeth.
