The average person has at least some minor staining or discoloration on their teeth. After all, most people drink coffee, tea, wine, and other dark-colored beverages. Even some foods that are dark in color have the potential to stain or discolor teeth. If you are even slightly unhappy with the look of your teeth, consider the merits of Zoom teeth whitening as detailed below.
Zoom Teeth Whitening has Emerged as one of the Most Popular Whitening Methods
Cosmetic dentists far and wide use Zoom teeth whitening for good reason: it produces results that look amazing and stand the test of time. Zoom teeth whitening is the application of a specialized whitening gel to the teeth. The gel is activated through a light source pointed at the teeth. This light source is applied across a period of 20 minutes. All in all, the Zoom teeth whitening process requires three applications that take a mere hour of your time. This is quite the rapid teeth whitening system, especially when compared to those at-home whitening products that require the patient to apply gels or whitening strips for several weeks. Sadly, many such at-home teeth whitening systems do not work or only slightly whiten the teeth. Furthermore, there is no dentist oversight with DIY at-home teeth whitening. Let the dentist oversee the Zoom teeth whitening process and all you have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy your beautiful new smile.
Zoom Teeth Whitening is Painless and Completely Safe
Zoom teeth whitening is highly effective yet 100% safe. There is no risk of damaging the gums, teeth, or soft tissues when Zoom is applied. The dentist takes the steps necessary to ensure your mouth is fully healthy prior to commencing Zoom treatment. Furthermore, the dentist applies protective barriers to prevent the whitening agent from reaching the gums, lips, cheeks, or any other part of your mouth aside from the teeth. Ask anyone who has had Zoom teeth whitening performed and they will respond that there was no discomfort. Though a small percentage of those who are provided with Zoom teeth whitening report minor tingling, such tingling tends to dissipate in minutes or hours after the treatment.
Zoom Whitens Teeth to Perfection
Zoom really does provide gorgeous-looking white teeth that boost confidence and ultimately make life that much more enjoyable. Zoom is capable of whitening teeth upwards of eight shades in a single hour session. You might also be provided with a whitening tray to use at home to ensure your teeth are whitened to the optimal shade. Though it is unlikely for the stains to reappear, it is possible. In such rare cases, a second whitening session at the dentist’s office will be necessary. However, there is nothing to worry about. Our dentist will do everything necessary to ensure your teeth are a lovely shade of white.
Zoom Teeth Whitening is Quick and Effective
Plenty of patients question whether Zoom teeth whitening can really beautify teeth in an hour or less. Though this brief window of time seems like an exaggeration, it is completely accurate. Let our dentist whiten your teeth with Zoom and you really will enjoy perfectly white teeth in as little as an hours time. If your teeth have stains along the surface, the dentist will apply a whitening varnish along with a sealant that dries remarkably quickly. After half an hour passes, the dentist wipes the varnish away to produce a lovely white smile.
Some patients have teeth with considerable discoloration. If you have significant discoloration, the appointment will be segmented into three sessions. Each session will last around 15 minutes. The dentist will apply the Zoom whitening gel to the teeth in each session. Once the whitening gel is applied, the dentist will shine a special lamp on the teeth to expedite the bleaching process. The logic in applying this unique light is that it breaks down the hydrogen peroxide within the gel to lift those ugly stains right off the teeth, leaving them a beautiful shade of white. All in all, the entire Zoom teeth whitening process is likely to take about an hour. If you would like to listen to music while waiting for the Zoom magic to occur, it won’t bother us. In fact, some patients use their smartphone and headphones to listen to podcasts or audiobooks during their Zoom teeth whitening appointment.
After the Procedure
Once the procedure is over, you will have aesthetically-pleasing teeth that make you proud of your smile. However, you will have to take a couple of measures to ensure your teeth remain a gorgeous shade of white. In particular, it is important to avoid smoking cigarettes, consuming soda, or eating/drinking any other food/beverage that will cause tooth discoloration. Furthermore, if the dentist provides an at-home teeth whitening kit, use it as directed. Finally, regular oral hygiene is of the utmost importance. Continue to floss and brush your teeth at least two times a day. If the dentist advises the uses of a specialized toothpaste for whitening, use it as directed.
Meet With the Dentist to Determine if You are a Candidate for Zoom Teeth Whitening
Most patients qualify as good candidates for Zoom teeth whitening. However, only the dentist can determine if you should choose Zoom for teeth whitening. Meet with the dentist for a tooth and gum analysis as soon as possible. The dentist will likely ask you some questions to determine if professional teeth whitening with Zoom will prove helpful for your unique teeth. There is a small chance your dietary habits will prevent the use of Zoom. As an example, if you are a habitual smoker, drink plenty of coffee or soda, or have another bad habit, the dentist might determine you are not a good candidate for Zoom.
