at Dental Associates of Corona offer high quality and highly effective in-office and at-home teeth whitening options.    

Evolution of Teeth Whitening

If you had been born in ancient Egypt, you might have been irritated by your tooth stains even then. According to historical records, they used a powder made from rock salt, mint, pepper, and dried iris flowers to brighten their smiles. Ancient Romans were more daring with their whitening methods of urine and goat’s milk. Before dentistry was a profession, barbers even tried their hand at teeth whitening with a procedure involving files and nitric acid. Luckily, in the 1980s dentists stumbled upon the teeth whitening benefits of hydrogen peroxide when using the compound to treat gum disease.

Whitening Options

Zoom! bleaching has evolved over recent years to offer extremely reliable teeth whitening in a very short time frame to patients. The entire procedure can be completed in less than two hours. Zoom! starts with protection of the gums and a strong but safe bleaching gel that is applied to the surfaces of teeth. A special light helps to activate the gel and make it faster and more effective. Some people do prefer take-home whitening kits, which are also provided by Dental Associates of Corona. Customized and reusable whitening trays have space for dental grade whitening gel that you wear on your own time for about 20 minute intervals on a daily basis. In a couple of weeks, you will have noticeable whitening that you can touch up whenever you please.
