Now that most smartphones feature a built-in camera, photo opportunities are everywhere. Family gatherings, dinner with friends, and even the workplace all become chances to snap a picture. For people whose smile is marred by yellow or brown stains on their teeth, the thought of saying “cheese” is enough to send them into full panic mode. On-camera or off, a healthy and attractive smile helps patients look and feel their best. Dr. Gordon Chin of Diamond Valley Dental offers several options for teeth whitening in Black Diamond, allowing his patients to whiten at home or in his office.
Zoom! Teeth Whitening
For dramatic results without the wait, patients can visit Dr. Chin’s office for treatment with Zoom whitening. Patients request this fast and effective whitening treatment more than any other professional teeth whitening system on the market, with tens of millions of satisfied patients across the world singing its praises. A single treatment, which lasts about an hour, whitens even the most stubborn stains by several shades. It’s not uncommon for patients to stop by for in-office whitening on their lunch break. Zoom also appeals to patients who have special events planned, such as weddings, speeches, or even job interviews.
DayWhite and NiteWhite for Home Whitening
Patients who prefer to whiten their teeth in privacy can opt for either the DayWhite or NiteWhite system. Unlike over-the-counter teeth whitening kits, these home whitening systems achieve results comparable to those of Zoom whitening, albeit more gradually. Dr. Chin provides professional strength bleaching gel, which the patient will use to fill special whitening trays. Because these trays are custom-fitted to each individual’s teeth, they are more comfortable than one-size-fits-all options, and they provide more consistent whitening—no need to worry about uneven or splotchy results. Some patients even wear their DayWhite trays on their morning commute.
A Beautiful Smile Is More Than White Teeth
A patient who desires a more attractive smile all around benefits from teeth whitening as part of a total smile makeover. Dr. Chin points out that the ideal smile has several characteristics other than color, such as shape, size, and straightness of the teeth. Even the gums affect the overall impact of a smile. A prominent gum line can be addressed with a gum lift, creating a more balanced smile. For teeth that do not respond to whitening, or that have several cosmetic flaws, Dr. Chin may recommend dental bonding or porcelain veneers. These treatments improve the shape and size of teeth and can also make the teeth appear straighter without orthodontics.
