The Sparkling Smile of Your Dreams
Tooth discoloration is common. Tobacco, pigments in certain foods and beverages, genetics, medications, and other factors contribute to dental stains. Off-white or yellowish enamel tarnishes an otherwise beautiful smile, and may leave you feeling self-conscious. Dr. George Namay offers teeth whitening at his Toledo office, so you can enjoy a brilliant smile all the time. With both in-office and take-home whitening methods to choose from, you are sure to find a treatment that fits your budget and lifestyle. Contact us today to learn more!
DayWhite® and NiteWhite® home whitening kits are our most popular tooth whitening treatments. At your initial consultation with Dr. Namay, you can discuss your cosmetic goals and expected outcome. The dentist will make impressions of your teeth and use them to create custom trays that fit comfortably and securely in your mouth. Before wearing the trays, you will fill them with a powerful yet safe whitening gel that will chemically break down stains on your tooth enamel. Dr. Namay will advise you on how often to wear the trays. Treatment usually requires 5 to 10 days of consecutive daily wear for about an hour per session, and you will notice your teeth lightening daily.
DayWhite® and NiteWhite® are equally effective, and Dr. Namay will be happy to explain the benefits of each one. Typically, patients with extremely busy schedules find NiteWhite® treatments to be a better choice. The DayWhite® option is good for patients who grind or clench their teeth at night. Regardless of which you choose, you will take home three tubes of whitening gel, and Dr. Namay will provide replacement gel at his own expense as long as you attend regular checkups and cleanings.
Dr. Namay also provides in-office Zoom!™ treatment for patients who want immediate results. If you choose this option, you can achieve a noticeably whiter smile in a single visit. Dr. Namay will first isolate your teeth and seal off your gums. Then he will apply a powerful whitening gel to your teeth, which he will activate using a specially designed Zoom!™ lamp. The hydrogen peroxide in the gel will initiate a chemical reaction to break down the stains on your teeth.
Though both whitening systems are equally effective, most patients choose home whitening methods, which typically cost less than in-office treatment. However, patients who are anticipating a big event or who simply do not want to maintain treatment at home may choose the immediate effects of Zoom!™.
With so many over-the-counter whitening options available, patients often ask us about the benefits of dentist-supervised treatment. The answer is simple: Dr. Namay has years of experience with teeth whitening, and he can guide you through the process and answer all of your questions. In addition, dentist-administered systems have a stronger active ingredient, and custom trays fit better and ensure better results.
A whiter, sparkling smile is just around the corner! To learn more about teeth whitening, or any of our other cosmetic or restorative procedures, contact our office today. We will be happy to schedule your consultation with Dr. Namay.
Susie, Tammy and Pam were all wonderful. They were warm and made me feel very comfortable. The front office staff was also wonderful, they made me feel very welcome and more like an old friend then a patient. Dr. Namay was beyond nice and I really felt that he had my best interests at heart. Thank you for the wonderful experience!
