Teeth Whitening

TenderCare Dental provides patients of all ages with quality teeth whitening and tooth bonding to improve the natural look of your smile. Consider teeth whitening or bonding if your teeth are darkened from age, coffee, tea, or smoking. Tooth whitening can begin in our office with a treatment using a curing light and be completed with take-home bleaching procedures and products. Once teeth have been whitened in a TenderCare Dental office, brief touch-ups under the supervision of a TenderCare dentist can help you achieve the bright smile that you desire!

Zoom! Teeth Whitening

The Zoom!® In-Office Whitening System is a revolutionary tooth whitening dentistry 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.

How Zoom!® Works!

The Zoom!® light-activated gel was developed after years of research by Discus Dental, the leaders in professional take-home tooth whitening dentistry. The gel is a scientifically formulated, pH balanced Hydrogen Peroxide that, when activated by the Zoom!® light, gently penetrates the teeth to remove deep stains and discoloration. With proper care and an occasional touch-up at home, your whiter smile will sparkle for years.

Get Ready to Zoom!®

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 by the results. In most cases, teeth get even whiter the first few days after the procedure.

Tooth Bonding

TenderCare Dental offers cosmetic dental bonding, which is a process that allows for a strong connection between natural-looking dental material and your tooth. Bonding also allows restoration of chipped, fractured, and unsightly teeth. Teeth can be restored to their original beauty with the advances in tooth-colored materials.

Benefits of Cosmetic Bonding Include:

  • Quick, affordable, relatively painless, and long-lasting.
  • A great alternative to veneers, bridges, and crowns.
  • The composite resin used in the procedure is very flexible, expanding, and contracting with the natural tooth to prevent cracks and tooth loss.
  • It’s an excellent option for individuals looking to repair imperfections in their smile.
