Teeth Whitening Systems

If you are interested in brightening your smile, teeth whitening products such as Britesmile® and the Zoom!® and Rembrandt® tooth whitening systems are high quality options that produce dramatic results. These treatments can be administered by your cosmetic dentist in-office in approximately one hour.

Zoom!® Teeth Whitening

The Zoom!® teeth whitening system is known for its speed. Zoom!® is considered to be one of the fastest teeth whitening systems available and it was designed to fit into patients' busy schedules. Zoom!® is both an in-office and at-home teeth whitening option. If your cosmetic dentist administers Zoom!® tooth whitening in his or her office, your teeth can look eight shades brighter in one hour. If you select the at-home option, your teeth can look three shades brighter in only three days. During a Zoom!® teeth whitening session, the dentist applies a tooth whitening gel containing hydrogen peroxide to each tooth. Laser light is then shone on the teeth; this causes the hydrogen peroxide to break down, letting oxygen into the teeth and whitening them. The cost for Zoom!® teeth whitening depends upon the dentist and area of the country, but generally ranges from $500 to $1500 for an in-office teeth whitening treatment.

A dental professional explains the Zoom! process.

BriteSmile® Teeth Whitening

BriteSmile® is a teeth whitening system that uses whitening gel in conjunction with gas plasma light in order to whiten a patient's teeth. BriteSmile® produces dramatic results in very little time; it can brighten teeth up to nine shades in one in-office visit; or, if the at-home option is selected, BriteSmile® can be used with custom fitted trays for two hours of whitening per day or overnight. The trays will lighten teeth up to six shades over a time span of several weeks. Like the Zoom!® tooth whitening system, the BriteSmile® in-office process takes effect when laser light reacts with the whitening gel. This light operates in the low level, blue-green spectrum and is absolutely safe for patients.

Rembrandt® Teeth Whitening

The Rembrandt® teeth whitening system combines the power of a "Sapphire" Plasma Arc Light with patented teeth whitening gel in order to brighten teeth by 8 to 10 shades. As with the Zoom!® and BriteSmile® teeth whitening systems, Rembrandt® teeth whitening takes approximately one hour to complete in-office. Rembrandt® also has an at-home option with custom fitted trays. The trays will whiten teeth in as little as a few days to a couple months, depending on the amount of whitening necessary. Whether you choose the Rembrandt® teeth whitening system in-office or at-home, you can be assured of dramatic results.

Many whitening treatments use special lights to intensify the effects of the bleaching formula.

Other Teeth Whitening Systems

Other over-the-counter teeth whitening products are available to the general public and include toothpastes, "paint-on" products, and strips. Some of these teeth whitening products work better than others. Teeth whitening kits (with paint-on applications and/or trays) tend to work best, followed by strips, and then toothpaste. Though some over-the-counter teeth whitening systems will produce good results, the outcome will generally not be comparable to professional teeth whitening supervised by a cosmetic dentist, whether the treatment is in office or at-home with custom fitted trays.
