Teeth Whitening to Transform Your Smile
The insecurity many people feel about their teeth often revolves around stained or discolored teeth. Whereas many whitening toothpastes promise to increase the whiteness of your teeth by a few shades over the course of weeks or months, a single teeth whitening visit to the Abilene, Texas office of Dr. Tim Simpson can produce much more significant results.
LUMIBRITE® Teeth Whitening
Dr. Tim Simpson elects to use the combination of the LUMIBRITE® teeth whitening system and the Sapphire™ light in his Abilene office as the primary method of whitening, though he can also use the similar Sapphire™ and Zoom!®2 whitening systems. The LUMIBRITE® teeth whitening system uses a hydrogen peroxide-based bleaching gel to begin the whitening process. The gel includes a desensitizing agent to aid in the prevention of any future bleach-related sensitivity. The whitening gel is combined with application of the Sapphire™ light, a special whitening lamp that emits a particular wavelength of no-heat light. When the light hits the whitening gel, the gel breaks down to penetrate and break up the stains and discoloration on your teeth.
The immediate results of LUMIBRITE® whitening with the Sapphire™ light are an amazing testament to the state-of-the-art technology. When the gel is used in conjunction with the Sapphire™ light, a 30-minute session can improve your teeth up to seven shades, while a 60-minute session can lighten your teeth up to 12 shades of white. Patients may also elect to add additional services by having custom trays made for at-home use to help them maintain the whiteness. The entire teeth whitening process takes approximately two hours to complete in Dr. Tim Simpson’s Abilene, Texas office.

ZOOM!2® Teeth Whitening
The foods and drinks you consume, when combined with the natural aging process, can steal away the natural luster of your teeth, causing them to look darkened and stained. Coffee, tea, cola, and red wine, as well as cigarettes and chewing tobacco, are the main culprits when it comes to losing the bright white of your teeth. However, thanks to the Zoom!2® teeth whitening treatment offered at Dr. Simpson's Abilene, Texas office, you can take regain your teeth's natural white color.
Because whitening treatments are so fast, convenient, and minimally-invasive, Zoom!2®, one of our newest treatments, is quickly becoming one of our most popular procedures. Improving upon its predecessor, the Zoom!2® whitening treatment allows patients to experience an average improvement of eight shades of white with minimal sensitivity.
The Zoom!2® treatment is performed by applying the advanced Zoom!2® formula to the teeth, then exposing it to the light emitted from the Zoom!2® Advanced Power Chairside Whitening Lamp. The new Zoom!2® lamp uses the optimal bleaching spectrum at the highest output of any chairside whitening system on the market, giving patients the vibrant white teeth they expect and deserve. To learn more about the Zoom!2® teeth whitening treatment, please contact Tim Simpson, DDS today.
