1.  Please arrive promptly for you appointment, remain in your car and call the office at (352) 331-4626 when you arrive.  
2.  Please wear your face covering or mask in the office (pursuant to the state of Florida office of the governor executive order number 20-11 and Alachua County Commissioner. 
3. A staff member will meet you at your car where you will be screened. We will check your temperature and pulse ox and have you fill out a questionnaire.  
4. We will take you straight back to the treatment room for your procedure. 
5. We ask that anyone accompanying you remain in the car. 


  * Please bring a jacket or blanket if you normally get cold! The temperature will be down and we will be wearing added gear.

Teeth Whitening Systems

If you are interested in brightening your smile, teeth whitening products such as Britesmile® and the Zoom!® and Rembrandt® tooth whitening systems are high quality options that produce dramatic results. These treatments can be administered by your cosmetic dentist in-office in approximately one hour.

Zoom!® Teeth Whitening

The Zoom!® teeth whitening system is known for its speed. Zoom!® is considered to be one of the fastest teeth whitening systems available and it was designed to fit into patients' busy schedules. Zoom!® is both an in-office and at-home teeth whitening option. If your cosmetic dentist administers Zoom!® tooth whitening in his or her office, your teeth can look eight shades brighter in one hour. If you select the at-home option, your teeth can look three shades brighter in only three days. During a Zoom!® teeth whitening session, the dentist applies a tooth whitening gel containing hydrogen peroxide to each tooth. Laser light is then shone on the teeth; this causes the hydrogen peroxide to break down, letting oxygen into the teeth and whitening them. The cost for Zoom!® teeth whitening depends upon the dentist and area of the country, but generally ranges from $500 to $1500 for an in-office teeth whitening treatment.

A dental professional explains the Zoom! process.

BriteSmile® Teeth Whitening

BriteSmile® is a teeth whitening system that uses whitening gel in conjunction with gas plasma light in order to whiten a patient's teeth. BriteSmile® produces dramatic results in very little time; it can brighten teeth up to nine shades in one in-office visit; or, if the at-home option is selected, BriteSmile® can be used with custom fitted trays for two hours of whitening per day or overnight. The trays will lighten teeth up to six shades over a time span of several weeks. Like the Zoom!® tooth whitening system, the BriteSmile® in-office process takes effect when laser light reacts with the whitening gel. This light operates in the low level, blue-green spectrum and is absolutely safe for patients.

Rembrandt® Teeth Whitening

The Rembrandt® teeth whitening system combines the power of a "Sapphire" Plasma Arc Light with patented teeth whitening gel in order to brighten teeth by 8 to 10 shades. As with the Zoom!® and BriteSmile® teeth whitening systems, Rembrandt® teeth whitening takes approximately one hour to complete in-office. Rembrandt® also has an at-home option with custom fitted trays. The trays will whiten teeth in as little as a few days to a couple months, depending on the amount of whitening necessary. Whether you choose the Rembrandt® teeth whitening system in-office or at-home, you can be assured of dramatic results.

Many whitening treatments use special lights to intensify the effects of the bleaching formula.

Other Teeth Whitening Systems

Other over-the-counter teeth whitening products are available to the general public and include toothpastes, "paint-on" products, and strips. Some of these teeth whitening products work better than others. Teeth whitening kits (with paint-on applications and/or trays) tend to work best, followed by strips, and then toothpaste. Though some over-the-counter teeth whitening systems will produce good results, the outcome will generally not be comparable to professional teeth whitening supervised by a cosmetic dentist, whether the treatment is in office or at-home with custom fitted trays.
