This procedure allows us to give you a whiter and brighter smile right here in our office usually in just one or two visits. We begin with a pre-op visit to determine the existing color shade of your teeth, the health of your teeth and a review of any risks involved with the procedure. Pre-op photos and all necessary consent paperwork is completed on the pre-op visit.
During the 1 to 2 hour treatment appointment, much care is taken to isolate and protect your gums, lips and other soft tissue areas throughout the whitening process. While some bleaching gels (aka Zoom II) requires the use of an ultraviolet light, the newer gels are activated without the use of the light. Once the isolation of all soft tissue is completed, we apply a highly concentrated bleaching gel on each of the facial surfaces of the six upper and lower anterior teeth. The whitening gel is allowed to work for 15 minutes. It is then removed and a new application of gel is applied for an additional 15 minutes. This same process is repeated again for a total of three-15 minute sessions. Once the procedure is complete, post op instructions are given to each patient. A follow up visit may be necessary to take post-op photos.
While every case is different, most patients will see their smile lighten an average of 2 to 6 shades or more. In some cases, we may recommend fluoride treatment to handle any post-whitening sensitivity. We will also provide you with custom take home touch up trays to assist you in keeping your smile white and bright. Power whitening differs from the take home tooth whitening procedures in that the results are immediate instead of the 2 to 3 weeks it takes to do whitening at home.
Power whitening is a safe and effective technology that can give you that beautiful smile you have been looking for and usually in just one or two visits. For more information, be sure to call our office staff for assistance with all your questions and concerns.

Due to a very negative dental experience in my teens causing my extreme fear of dentist and the effect of diabetics on my teeth by the time I found Dr. Horner approximately two years ago, my mouth was in horrible condition. From the very first visit Dr. Horner and his staff have made me feel comfortable and safe in their care. Dr. Horner has been able to save and restore my teeth with gentle and compassionate care. Since beginning my treatment I have moved three and half hours away but I am so confident in Dr. Horner and his staffs exceptional care that I travel to Montgomery for my dental care. I highly recommend East Taylor Dental. lt is the right place for anyone with dentist phobia's.Debra W. - Patient since 2014,
