Teeth whitening is a safe and effective way of removing discoloration and stains from teeth. An effective whitening procedure can take years off of your age as teeth tend to discolor gradually over time. Dr. Michael Mostofi at his office in Alsio Viejo provides two types of whitening procedures: Zoom Advance whitening is an in-office procedure that only takes an hour and has dramatic results. Zoom Advance is the latest in-office whitening system that can whiten teeth up to eight shades. Patients can enjoy their favorite music and relax in the comforts of a serene environment while having their teeth whitened. Teeth whitening can take years off of your appearance in only one hour. Take home whitening kits utilize a lower-concentration peroxide gel that remains on the teeth for an hour or longer (sometimes overnight). In-office results are normally more dramatic and much faster than take home whitening kits.
