Paint on Whitening for Sensitive Teeth

Dr DeMello’s whitening kits consist of a paint on gel. You simply brush on a small amount of gel about the size of a grain of rice once a day for about twenty minutes.  Teeth noticeably whiten in two to three days. Each tube contains enough gel for 12 to 15 treatments for $10 or three tubes for $25 (36 to 45 twenty minute treatments). This technique is more effective and economical than Crest Whitening strips and does not cause sensitivity.

In-office whitening

Why wait?
If you have stained or discolored teeth, Dr. DeMello can brighten your smile in about 30 minutes with Sensation or Iveri Whitening. This is a bleaching process that gets rids of stains caused by coffee, tea, colas, tobacco, red wine, smoking, aging, the use of certain antibiotics or excessive fluoridation.

This is similar to the ZOOM technique was featured on ABC TV’s Extreme Makeover show by its inventor Dr. Bill Dorfman with whom Dr. DeMello studied. The new Iveri and Sensation technique uses a light activated gel similar to the ZOOM system in which the active ingredient is Hydrogen Peroxide. The involves protecting all the soft tissue around the mouth and the process is always monitored by Dr. DeMello’s staff. The technique can be used on everyone and is especially good for people with periodontal recession and those with sensitive teeth. After the in-office portion of the treatment, you will be given a bleaching tray and applicator of home whitening gel for up to 4 touch up applications per applicator to maintain nice white teeth. Usually maintanence applications are needed every two months depending on the individual and consumption of staining foods and beverages.

Dr. DeMello also provides home whitening in the form of custom trays for overnight whitening as he has done since 1995.
