What is Teeth Whitening?
Your teeth will naturally begin to yellow and dull with age. However, certain lifestyle habits like smoking and drinking a lot of coffee and soda can have a significant impact on the way that your teeth look. We offer Zoom! whitening to our patients as an effective in-office treatment option. Zoom! whitening is done in under an hour and delivers dramatic, brilliant results.
What can be expected during Teeth Whitening treatment?
Most patients who want whitening can benefit from the Zoom system. We will examine your teeth to determine if Zoom is right for you. Your teeth should be otherwise healthy and free of decay before undergoing this type of work. Zoom is best for adult patients wanting a drastic change to their appearance.
Who is a candidate for Teeth Whitening?
Even professional whitening will not have an effect on the way that your restorations look. If you have veneers, bonding, fillings, crowns or bridge work, whitening won’t lighten them or alter the color in any way. We can examine your teeth before we recommend whitening to you. If you have tooth decay or other dental problems, additional treatment may be needed.
What happens during the Teeth Whitening process?
The Zoom! whitening system begins by being seated comfortable in the office. We use cotton and other methods to keep your lips away from your teeth. A whitening gel is applied to your teeth and a bright light is angled at the teeth to accelerate the results. The gel is removed after about 30 minutes and a new layer of gel is applied. The light is replaced over the teeth and utilized for an additional 30 minutes. In under an hour, you’ll experience a smile that is multiple shades whiter and brighter than before. You can maintain your results with at-home whitening or simply come back in whenever you need a refresh.
