What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a simple way to make a dramatic change to your smile. It is one of our most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments and is used to lighten the color of stained tooth enamel. Non-invasive and fast, teeth whitening allows our patients to feel confident about the way their smile looks. At Rainier Dental Center, we are pleased to offer Zoom whitening as our choice of high-quality teeth whitening in Seattle, Washington. The Zoom whitening system is a professional, powerful collection of tools and methods that can produce stunning results.

How do I whiten my teeth?

Because of the versatility of the Zoom whitening system, you are able to whiten your teeth at our office or at home, depending on your individual needs and goals. Both methods work similarly. For our in-office teeth whitening, a whitening gel is applied directly to the surface of your teeth and allowed to absorb as the special Zoom ultraviolet light activates the gel to gently dissolve stains and discoloration. This process can whiten your smile by multiple shades in as little as an hour. If you would rather whiten you smile in the convenience of your own home, the Zoom system also offers take-home whitening trays. These trays are made of plastic and comfortably fit over your teeth to apply the whitening gel.

Dr. Obiora E. Nkwonta, our knowledgeable dentist, will be able to determine which method will help you reach your smile goals. For a dazzling new smile, consider calling our dental office today to learn more about teeth whitening. We look forward to hearing from you!
