Zero Sensitivity Bleaching

Most dentists agree that one of the major problems with tooth whitening is that patients usually experience sensitivity.  In this program Dr. Zase will demonstrate the use of a pre-whitener to reduce or eliminate the sensitivity as well as additional benefits.  Other techniques to increase patient satisfaction with tooth whitening include a modified technique for constructing take-home trays and patient education about bleaching.  Dr. Zase will also review the technique for in-office bleaching.

I want to make sure that the viewer is clear that this is a video of how we do tooth whitening in my office, and it is not meant to imply that any other group endorses this method.  I can only tell you that this is the method what we use, and it is working incredibly successfully for us.  It should also be noted that I am the Professional Advisor for WITERx, the makers of the WITERx Pre-White Professional Pre-Whitening Stain & Pain Elimination Swabs, that we use as the pre-whiteners.  Dr. Marty Zase
