Cosmetic Dentistry


Over time, teeth can become yellowed or stained, often the result from the consumption of coffee, wine, tobacco products or other staining elements. Tooth whitening is one of the most straightforward methods of enhancing your smile and your emotional well-being. A whiter and brighter smile can improve you confidence. All of your teeth or just a particularly dark one can be lightened. There are endless products are the market to whiten your teeth, but seeing a dental professional for this treatment is always advised. Not only are the products used in-office stronger and more effective, but we can also make sure your treatment does not aggravate sensitive gums. At Southcoast Smiles, we offer two options to whiten your teeth.

In-Office Whitening

The Zoom! In-Office Whitening System is a revolutionary tooth whitening procedure. It’s safe effective and fast, very fast. In just over an hour, your teeth will be dramatically whiter. Zoom! Whitening is ideal for anyone looking for immediate results. The convenience of Zoom! in comparison to days of wearing trays and gradual whitening makes it the perfect choice for the busy individual.

The Zoom! Whitening procedure is simple and painless. It begins with a short preparation to isolate your lips and gums. The Zoom! clinician then applies the proprietary Zoom! Whitening Gel, which is activated by a specially designed light. Teeth typically become at least six to ten shades whiter, sometimes more. A five-minute fluoride treatment completes the procedure. You’ll be amazed with the results. In most cases, teeth get even whiter the first few days after the procedure.

At-Home Endless Whitening

When you come into our office for your initial cleaning, we will provide you with handmade whitening trays. Then, every six months when you return for your preventive visit, you will receive a touch up kit of bleaching gel absolutely FREE! This amazing offer will help you achieve and maintain a beautiful smile! Endless Whitening is available for a one-time enrollment fee of just $99.

The whitening process is carried out using a special bleaching gel in thin vinyl trays that are custom made to fit your mouth. Whitening takes 14 to 21 nights on average and can lighten your teeth by 1 or 2 shades on our shade guide.

Human variation means that not everyone will experience the same bleaching results however an initial examination with the dentist will allow us to give you a good idea as to the likely outcome.
