Teeth Whitening – In Office or At Home

A Whiter Smile is a Better Smile

There is something very appealing about a beautiful, white row of teeth looking back at you. Trusted Hellertown, PA dentist at Hellertown Dental Group can help you get that whiter smile. With the help of our Zoom teeth whitening system, your smile will never look better.

What Is Zoom Teeth Whitening?

Zoom teeth whitening is an amazing professional teeth whitening option provided only by Hellertown, PA dentists  such as Dr. Hunsicker-Morrissey. We have two options available for you to brighten and whiten your smile.

  • teeth-whitening-pa-hellertown-dental-groupIn-Office Teeth Whitening – This option is performed in our office. It normally takes about an hour to complete and is therefore ideal for the busy adult who wants whiter teeth as quickly as they can get them. The process starts with your Hellertown, PA dentist, Dr. Hunsicker-Morrissey, making molds of your teeth to create your custom whitening trays. After your trays are ready, we will apply a protective gel to your gums. This gel will protect the soft tissue from being irritated by the whitening gel. Next, the whitening gel is applied to your teeth, and a laser is used to activate the whitening effects of the gel. You will leave with your touch-up trays to use at home, instructions from Dr. Hunsicker-Morrissey on how to keep your smile bright, and, of course, your new, whiter smile.
  • At-Home Teeth Whitening – This is a teeth whitening treatment that you can do in the comfort of your own home. We will take a mold of your teeth and produce a set of custom whitening trays for you to use at home. This is a less expensive option than the in-office choice, but it is still very effective in giving you a whiter smile. Once your trays are complete, we will show you how to apply the bleaching agent to the trays and how to apply the trays to your teeth. This is important, as you want to avoid getting the bleaching agent on your gums and irritating them. You will need to wear your trays for between 30-60 minutes each day, twice a day. The length of your treatment will be determined by both your dentist and your desired amount of whitening.

Benefit of Zoom Teeth Whitening Vs. Store-Bought Whiteners

The main benefit of using a professional teeth whitening treatment such as Zoom over a store-bought whitener is the level of teeth whitening you will achieve. There are many good whiteners on the market today, but because of FDA regulations, the concentrations in the whitening gels you buy at the store are much less than the concentrations that you will receive from your Hellertown, PA dentist. Simple math: the higher the concentration, the more whitening effect the gel has. It’s like washing your clothes with a detergent that has more water than another one – your clothes just won’t get as clean. Likewise, your teeth will not be as white with an OTC whitener.

What Our Patients Are Saying

In our 25 years of practice, we’ve seen thousands of patients. How can we help you?

  • I came in and I ended up having 3 cavities. She then showed me how to prevent them in future and how to just maintain healthy teeth. She’s super outgoing, super easy to get along with, never awkward, always so talkative, interested about everyone’s life. The kids center is a big plus.

  • I’ve been coming here for about 16, 17 years, and all of my kids from elementary through high school, and even in college have come and we’ve all had the same experience. They are pleasant. They get to know you. They would always explain to me the proper way to floss, and the particular type of flosses to use.

  • There’s always a level of comfort. As you’re sitting in the waiting room, you don’t feel like you’re bored out of your mind. It’s a nice, comfortable environment. The same when you get back in the chair. The TV’s going, and it makes you feel a little bit more at home.

  • I sit in the big chair, and then they get the mirror thingy and they look at my teeth. When they use the Tinkerbell light, it didn't hurt at all. I like it when my teeth are bright and shiny when I leave. I really like coming to see Doctor Ann.
