There are numerous over-the-counter methods available for whitening your teeth, and some can be effective.  But you should choose carefully, because others may be ineffective or actually harm your teeth.

And none of the over-the-counter treatments have proven to be as effective—or as fast—as professional in-office whitening procedures.

At Charlotte Dentistry, we offer two professional whitening approaches – one in-office which is Zoom and the other is an at home system – Sheer White. 

Our Zoom! whitening method is one of the most efficient ways to get a bright, white smile.  Zoom! works in 60 minutes and last longer than at home whitening treatments depending on your eating or drinking habits. The results with Zoom! can be dramatic.

Zoom! has been proven to whiten teeth as much as 6-8 shades with just one treatment.  Compare that to the typical results of over-the-counter whitening trays (4 shades in 7-14 days), whitening strips or gels (2-6 shades in 7-30 days) or toothpaste (1-2 shades in 30-60 days).  And the Zoom! treatment last longer than home treatments, which typically have to be continued to maintain their results.

If you’d prefer a whitening treatment you can do at home, then we offer Sheer White!  Sheer White uses thin, flexible films that apply easily and mold to your teeth, staying in place.  This film molds tightly and applies the whitening agent directly to the surface of the tooth, unlike over-the-counter treatments that can wash out or leak.  With Sheer White! results can also be dramatic depending on your eating or drinking habits.

Both systems are fast, painless, and a great way to get good results.  Ask about both procedures when you schedule your next cleaning to decide which procedure might work best for you.
