Regardless of efficient oral hygiene habits, most of us will probably experience some level of tooth discoloration as time passes. Professional teeth whitening can revitalize your teeth and enable you to smile confidently. The Zoom whitening system has helped millions of patients worldwide enjoy sparkling white results. It is a simple, safe method that can deliver results up to eight shades brighter in just one appointment.
Why Do Teeth Change Color?
Your teeth may start to appear dark or greyish for several reasons. A major factor may be the foods you consume, including ripe berries, pasta sauce, and dark vinegar, which stick to tooth enamel and lead to gradual darkening. Beverages like tea, coffee, and red wine may change the shade of teeth even faster. Other factors affecting the color of a smile include certain medications, especially tetracycline, tobacco use, excess fluoride exposure during childhood, or poor dental hygiene.
Benefits of Zoom Whitening
Though there is a wide range of over-the-counter products available that promise to whiten or bleach the teeth, Zoom teeth whitening offers some distinct advantages, including:
- Professional-grade bleaching agents can remove even the most stubborn stains.
- They offer significant results in a single appointment.
- The products used are resistant against future stains and discoloration
- The results are long-lasting.
- They help complement other cosmetic dentistry procedures such as full mouth restorations or a comprehensive smile makeover.
The Zoom Whitening Process
The Zoom Whitening process is pretty straightforward and painless. Before starting the process, our dentists will apply the whitening gel to your teeth after your lips are retracted to expose your teeth. For additional protection, your lips and gums are covered by placing a protective shield to safeguard them from the adverse whitening gel effects. Next, the Zoom whitening agents are activated by employing laser light that helps penetrate your teeth. The Zoom whitening gel contains a medically formulated, pH-balanced hydrogen peroxide that gently pierces the teeth to eliminate deep stains and discoloration when activated by the light. The teeth turn at least eight to ten shades brighter, sometimes more. Finally, fluorides are applied to complete the process. Your whiter smile will sparkle for years with proper care and maintenance at home.
Aftercare of Zoom Whitening
After achieving brilliant results with Zoom Whitening, you should make sure they last as long as possible. It would be best if you continued to brush, floss, and visit your dentist regularly to maintain your healthy, radiant smile. If discoloration does reappear within a few months following your treatment, use the convenient touch-up kit that we provide you to refresh your bright smile.
