Teeth Whitening at kanakadentalcare

We offer expert teeth whitening at our Staten Island dental office using two different processes

  • The Tray Method: Dr. Shivu will take impressions of your mouth, from which carefully molded trays are formed. These trays are thin, light and comfortable to wear. The patient adds a small amount of liquid to the tray and proceeds to wear them for just one hour per day. To achieve the optimal result, Dr. Shivu recommends you consistently wear them for 7-10 days. The trays are kept and can be used again for touch-ups.

  • Zoom: Dr. Shivu now offers ZOOM in his office to compliment our bleaching services.
  • What is Zoom?

    ZOOM! is a radical chair side teeth whitening system that uses a full-mouth bleaching light combined with a revolutionary 25% Hydrogen Peroxide light activated gel to lighten teeth 6-10 shades in about an hour.
    The ZOOM! Technology
    ZOOM! is the culmination of extensive research into light technology, chemical reaction to light and years of traditional tooth whitening experience. Combining this proprietary light technology (specially designed for tooth whitening) with a specifically formulated hydrogen peroxide gel in a two part delivery system results in a tooth whitening system that significantly reduces the time it takes to achieve dramatically whiter teeth.

    GENERAL FACTS ABOUT BLEACHING: All bleaching systems whiten your teeth, but when bleaching is completed, the color will fade about half a shade. Using the tray method in conjunction with ZOOM helps to maintain, stabilize and advance the desired result.
    Bleaching can only be performed on clean, healthy teeth and healthy gums.
    Bleaching will not whiten existing fillings and crowns. Existing work may need to be changed so as to achieve consistent color.
    Bleaching only works on enamel. Teeth which have thin enamel due to chemical or physical abrasion will whiten poorly. Sensitive teeth are the most commonly reported side effect.
