iStock_000028998950_LargeLooking to brighten your smile just in time for summer?  We offer both custom home teeth whitening trays and in-office teeth whitening procedures, but how do you know which one to choose?

Here are a few of the differences between home teeth whitening avvvvnd a professional teeth whitening procedures.

Home Teeth Whitening

We create a custom-made whitening tray that fits perfectly onto your teeth for comfort and maximum whitening exposure.  When you’re at home, you can fill the trays with whitening gel and wear them for about 2 hours per day for 1-2 weeks.  These trays can be worn at any time throughout the day – whenever is convenient for you!  At the end of your home whitening treatment, you will notice a whiter smile.

Professional Teeth Whitening

ZOOM® Whitening is our in-office, professional teeth whitening procedure.  In just one hour, you can have a bright, beautiful smile.  There is no need to take home whitening trays.  Instead, your teeth whitening procedure is completed within your office visit.  During your visit, your dentist will apply a whitening solution to your teeth and switch on a light that activates the solution.  After about an hour, you’re left with a brighter smile.

If you have any questions about how to brighten your smile this spring, give us a call!  We are here to help you keep your smile beautiful and healthy.  Call 203-254-3780 to contact our office to schedule your appointment or visit our website for more information on the different treatments and services that we offer at Fairfield Dental Arts.
