Zoom! Whitening For A Whiter, Brighter Smile

What color are your teeth? If you ask a child, the automatic answer is “white.” Ask an adult, you may get a different answer. Sure, most of us would like to have a dazzling, white smile. Maybe you tried the strips, but found them to be too much of a hassle. Perhaps you are using whitening toothpaste, but you aren’t seeing much of a difference. Or you think, who has the time to mess with tooth-whitening?

Thanks to advanced technology, a brilliant white smile can now be a reality with an in-office procedure known as Zoom! whitening. With Zoom! whitening, your teeth will be visibly whiter in just one hour, making it ideal for anyone who is looking for immediate results. And Zoom! whitening does not damage tooth enamel. Years of extensive research and clinical studies confirm that teeth whitening under the supervision of a dental professional is safe.

Your path to “pearly whites” begins with the dentist applying a whitening gel to your teeth. The gel contains a high concentration of hydrogen peroxide, which breaks up stains to give you a brighter smile. Once the gel has been applied, a special light is used to activate the hydrogen peroxide gel. This light breaks down the hydrogen peroxide, which then breaks down the stains and discoloration on your teeth. In about an hour, your smile can be up to eight shades whiter!

Prior to receiving Zoom! whitening, your dentist will need to evaluate your teeth to make sure this treatment will work for you. Once the dentist determines that your smile could benefit from Zoom! whitening, you will be prescribed a special fluoride toothpaste to use for two weeks leading up to your whitening appointment. After the in-office treatment, your dentist will send you home with an at-home kit that can be used twice a year to maintain your gleaming smile. Also, to keep your teeth looking their best after your whitening treatment, it is wise to limit foods and drinks that leave stains and discolorations on your teeth.

If you are interested in having whiter teeth, but feel anxious about going to the dentist, I.V. sedation is an option to consider.

Once you see how brilliant your smile can be with Zoom! whitening, you won’t be able to stop smiling!
