Teeth Whitening
Tooth Stains

The outer-most layer of your tooth, the enamel, is what becomes stained or discolored and adversely, whitened during teeth whitening treatment. The tooth's enamel is actually quite porous when looked at up close and thinking about it this way makes it easier to understand how teeth can become stained.

Coffee, tea, colas, wine, certain fruits and vegetables, smoking or chewing tobacco and inadequate brushing and flossing can all cause the tooth's enamel to stain. Tiny microscopic particles lodge themselves into the porous enamel layer of your teeth which causes the overall appearance of the tooth to become discolored. Chris T. Nhan, DDS offers professional-grade whitening solutions that eliminate stains and discoloration by blasting out the particles within the porous enamel layer and effectively bleaching the enamel. What is left behind is a beautiful whiter enamel layer.

Are you a heavy coffee drinker? Do you smoke? Do you drink soda? Are your teeth naturally discolored? If so, chances are your teeth have seen whiter days. Chris T. Nhan, DDS makes whitening your teeth extremely fast and affordable with our powerful whitening system. With this whitening system that only a dentist can provide (not to be mistaken for those mall-style teeth whitening stations we've all seen), we are able to whiten stained and discolored teeth up to 8 shades whiter in less than an hour!

Chris T. Nhan, DDS can send you home with home teeth whitening kits that contain a extra-strength concentrated whitening solutions that you can't get from a supermarket or over the counter.

Professional Whitening vs. Home Whitening

Today, whitening your teeth can be done using a variety of products and services. Do-it-yourself at-home whitening kits are available at your local supermarket and are an effective way to whiten teeth but require frequent applications for weeks at a time to achieve a whiter smile.

Our Zoom whitening system uses a specialized concentrated whitening gel that you can't find in supermarkets and is activated by using a powerful whitening light that is also not available to the general public. Zoom smile whitening is done in the dental office and only requires 1 dental visit compared to nightly whitening applications from an at-home whitening kit.

Any form of teeth whitening can achieve great results. Single-visit whitening enables those with time-sensitive occasions such as a wedding, reunion, etc. to whiten their teeth now however, home whitening is an extremely affordable whitening method you can do yourself!

DIY vs. Dentist-provided Home Whitening Kits

There is a difference between the teeth whitening kits you can get from the supermarket and the high-strength home whitening kits our office is able to provide. Store-bought do-it-yourself whitening kits feature a "boil-and-fit" mouthpiece that can be uncomfortable and generally requires more whitening gel per tooth to achieve whiter teeth. The gels in the store-bought whitening kits are also are not as concentrated as what we can offer which means it takes longer to achieve desired results. Chris T. Nhan, DDS uses kits that are able to create an exact-fit whitening tray that is custom built for your teeth. This maximizes the displacement and effectiveness of the whitening gel ensuring that it surrounds the teeth evenly and entirely. Additionally, our home-whitening kits use a high-strength proprietary whitening gel that you can't get over-the-counter from a supermarket which means your teeth get a deeper and longer lasting result in less time.

If you are thinking or have any questions about our single-visit teeth whitening system or about our take-home whitening kits, please call us at 916-965-7188. You can also request an appointment and get set-up for your one-hour whitening appointment.

Zoom Single-visit Teeth Whitening Cost

At first, it may seem like being able to whiten your teeth up to 8 shades whiter in a single dental visit would cost a fortune right? That's not the case at all! Advances in smile whitening technology and procedure techniques have drastically cut down on the cost to patients. At Chris T. Nhan, DDS, Zoom single-visit smile whitening is extremely affordable for the everyday patient and is one of the cheapest cosmetic dental procedures available in dentistry today.

Single-visit whitening (generally) costs slightly more than at-home whitening kits. That said, with our single-visit whitening system, you're getting a super fast whitening result of up to 8 shades whiter in about one hour vs. weeks of nightly applications with home-whitening kits. You're also getting a deeper whitening (longer lasting) result because single-visit whitening uses a concentrated whitening gel which activates using a specialized whitening light.

Because results may vary depending on the existing color, shade and condition of your teeth, we invite you to request an appointment and come in so we can take a look at your smile.
