Is Professional Teeth Whitening a Good Option for Me?

Before your dentist approves you for professional teeth whitening, we make sure your teeth and gums are in shape for this cosmetic option. If you’re a new patient or have not been to the dentist in a while, this comprehensive exam may include x-rays.

Your dentist considers any oral health conditions and restorations before giving the green light for all cosmetic dentistry options. However, these issues do not always rule you out as a candidate for professional teeth whitening.

We also want to hear from you and learn more about your smile goals following this cosmetic dentistry option.

If your dentist finds that brightening your smile is a good option for you, we explain the options we offer and then schedule your teeth whitening appointment.

At Cook Family Dental, we love to see our patients enjoy their smiles and feel confident following all cosmetic dentistry treatments.  

Fast Results with Zoom! Teeth Whitening in Birmingham, AL

Zoom! Teeth Whitening products have a reputation for producing optimal results in a short amount of time. For your convenience, we offer both in-office power whitening treatments and customized take-home kits for your convenience.

While we have dealt with other whitening products in the past, Zoom! Teeth Whitening has long been a patient favorite. And we believe it delivers premium whitening results faster than other products—fast and lasting results!

Your dentist will let you know what to expect following treatment, and we can help you make the best choice—in-office or take-home—based on your goals and timeframe.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

In-Office Teeth Whitening – Are you on a tight timeline and need immediate results? Maybe you have a wedding, vacation, or another event right around the corner? In-office power whitening is the solution you need for immediate results.

We start with professional teeth cleaning to ensure your teeth' surfaces are free of plaque and debris for the brightest results possible.

Our dental team carefully protects your gums before getting started, so the bleaching gel won’t irritate sensitive tissues and cause tooth sensitivity. We then apply the gel to the surfaces of your teeth and use the Zoom! light for results that are about six to eight shades brighter. We can stop the treatment when your teeth reach the desired shade.

After this treatment, we fabricate custom take-home whitening trays based that fit your teeth. With these trays, you can maintain that bright smile! You can do touch-ups periodically and at your convenience.

Whiten Your Smile at Home

Customized Take-Home Teeth Whitening – Many patients prefer to whiten at home at their convenience. This means you don’t have to take off work or rearrange your plans for in-office teeth whitening, and you can touch up your smile whenever you like. Our customized whitening kits are complete with everything you need to achieve stunning results.

We take impressions of your smile that we use to design customized whitening trays that fit perfectly over your teeth. You will receive your trays, prescription-strength whitening gel, and instructions to use them daily for 20 to 30 minutes. After about two weeks, you can expect to see a smile that’s about six shades brighter.

This option is ideal if you do not have an event on the horizon, and many patients choose this method to give them a brighter smile during the holidays or for family photos—or just because they want to feel better about their smiles.

Imagine whitening your smile while you load the dishwasher, watch a favorite film, or relax with a good book!

Can I Use Professional Teeth Whitening with Other Cosmetic Dentistry Options?

You can absolutely do this, and many patients choose to start their cosmetic dentistry with professional teeth whitening because it allows you to choose lighter restorations—crowns, dental implants, bonding, bridges, and veneers.

Keep in mind that teeth whitening will not lighten restorations, so it is crucial to plan your cosmetic dentistry journey with your dentist and start with this option.

Our options for cosmetic dentistry in Birmingham include but are not limited to:

  • Tooth-colored restorations—fillings, bonding, crowns
  • Clear aligners—Inman aligners, Smart Moves, ClearCorrect

If you’re considering a smile makeover in 35233, we also offer dental implants and other tooth replacement options. And if you’re looking to put your best face forward, consider BOTOX® to go with your new bright smile. Our BOTOX treatments smooth out fine lines and wrinkles and can take years off your face.

At Cook Family Dental, nothing makes us happier than helping our patients reach their smile goals.

How Does Store-Bought Teeth Whitening Compare with Professional Teeth Whitening?

Store-bought kits can be harsh on your tooth enamel, which is why your cosmetic dentist in Birmingham, AL recommends brightening your smile under the directions of a dentist or dental professional.

We do not want you to have to deal with ongoing tooth sensitivity because of a harsh ingredient. And we don’t want you to be disappointed with your results—uneven whitening or lackluster brightening.

Remember, when your dentist approves you for teeth whitening, it means our prescription-strength systems are considered safe for your teeth and gums. When you use an over-the-counter option, this is not the case.

At Cook Family Dental, we want our patients to achieve the best results safely.
