Get A Brighter, Whiter Smile Today
Many people dream of having a brilliant white smile, but it doesn’t have to be just a dream. There are simple, effective and affordable teeth whitening products and procedures. Now, a bright white smile can easily become a reality for you.
Briglia Dental Group can get patients set up with at-home whitening kits and also offers a professional teeth whitening procedure known as Zoom Whitening. Patients looking to enhance the color of their teeth can choose the option that works best for them.
Teeth Whitening at Home
Qualified dentists can provide patients with much more effective teeth whitening products than those available over the counter. At Briglia Dental, we start by taking impressions of the patient’s teeth and making models of their mouth. This allows us to make custom bleaching trays that will fit that patient’s smile perfectly and provide impeccable results.
Then, patients can go home and use the professional-strength whitening gel. They simply apply the gel to the trays and wear them for one hour while the active whitening ingredients do their work. In two to three weeks, patients have a noticeably whiter smile. One of the big advantages of at-home whitening is that patients can control the whitening process. They can touch up their smile a few times throughout the year to maintain the bright, white color they prefer. Gel refills are available through our office as needed.
Zoom Whitening Procedure
This quick teeth whitening procedure is done at the dentist’s office. In just one hour, a dentist trained in using the Zoom method can deliver striking results. With the Zoom whitening procedure, patients can expect to see their smile become three or four shades lighter.
The process involves targeting the teeth which will be treated and applying the special Zoom whitening gel. Then, the professional whitening light is used to active the gel and brighten the teeth. This 15-minute process is repeated four times and the whitening gel is reapplied for each session.
The Briglia Dental team makes it easy to keep your smile bright, as well. Before performing the in-office Zoom procedure, we take impressions of the patient’s mouth and make a set of personal bleaching trays. Then, the patient can touch up over time with at-home whitening gel. In this way, our patients actually have two ways to maintain a bright, white grin.
Who is Teeth Whitening Recommended for?
Most people are good candidates for either at-home teeth whitening or the Zoom procedure. The Briglia Dental team recommends whitening for:
- Adults; patients over the age of 18.
- Patients whose teeth are generally healthy and in good condition.
- Those without severe tooth decay which has affected the front teeth.
Should I Choose At-Home or In-Office Teeth Whitening?
It’s really up to you! Only you can decide what the best option is for your needs. In general, we recommend the in-office Zoom whitening procedure for patients who want faster, more dramatic results and wish to avoid wearing trays. We advise patients who want to do whitening at their own speed to select the at-home kit.

A Bright Smile Today and Tomorrow
Teeth whitening doesn’t last forever. The effects of both at-home gels and in-office procedures will fade over time as teeth age and pick up stains. This length of time is different for each patient. The good news is that patients can always touch up their smile. By using the at-home trays for a few days, you can maintain your white smile for years to come.
