One of the first things people notice about you are your teeth. Why not make a lasting first impression by showing off a bright, beautiful smile.
There are many reasons why teeth become stained or discolored, including tobacco use, and drinking dark liquids such as red wine, coffee, tea and cola. However, the natural aging process and prescription medication use can also cause yellowing and graying. Whatever the reason, Dr. Dekano and his staff can get your teeth back to their natural white shade and get back your beautiful radiant smile.
There are several options for whitening you teeth. These include in office 1-hour professional whitening and take home whitening kits. In most cases, in office whitening is done to whiten teeth right away up to 8 shades whiter, and then a take home kit is given to the patient for home touch up whitening. Discuss with Dr. Dekano which whitening option is best for you.

Zoom! – A radiant smile for a confident you
It’s the first thing people notice about you — and when you feel good about it, it shows. Philips Zoom gives you the radiant results you want with a variety of whitening options to fit your lifestyle. And when it comes to whitening — like with everything having to do with your smile — your dentist is your best resource. That’s why only dental professionals have access to the professional-strength whitening of Philips Zoom.
The active ingredient in whitening gel is hydrogen peroxide, which releases oxygen into the tooth enamel and underlying dentin to bleach out discoloration. The Zoom! light speeds up this process by activating the gel, allowing the hydrogen peroxide to better penetrate the surface of the tooth and create a whiter smile.
With proper care, your teeth should always remain whiter than they were before Zoom!. Practicing good oral hygiene, avoiding foods that stain teeth and abstaining from smoking will lengthen the results. To keep your smile looking bright, Zoom! recommends occasional touch-ups with Zoom! WeekenderTM or Nite White® gel, which can be purchased from your Zoom! dentist.
