BENEFITS OF ZOOM TEETH WHITENING
Zoom teeth whitening can be extremely beneficial for anyone looking for instant, professional results. Unlike your at home whitening kits, your dentist is able to give you a noticeably whiter smile in under an hour. Like the name suggest, Zoom teeth whitening is a quick procedure and can easily fit into a busy schedule. We recommend scheduling a consultation with us to determine if Zoom whitening is the right choice for your smile.
If you have some slight tooth discoloration, then we will paint on a whitening varnish onto the surface of your teeth. Then we will apply a quick-drying sealant and wait 30 minutes. After 30 minutes have passed we will wipe away the varnish and reveal your noticeably whiter teeth.
If you are someone who has severe tooth discoloration, then we might have to break up your treatment into 3 sessions that will last 15 minutes. Instead of the procedure listed above we will apply a whitening gel to your teeth, and then shine a special lamp onto your teeth to accelerate the teeth bleaching. This light works to break down the hydrogen peroxide in the gel in order to lift the tooth stains and whiten your teeth.
Now depending on the amount of tooth discoloration, we may recommend porcelain veneers or other cosmetic dentistry options over Zoom whitening. For example, professional teeth whitening may not be the best choice for discoloration caused by dental fluorosis (mottled teeth caused by excessive fluoride intake).Getting dental veneers would be able to cover the front of your teeth giving you a confident smile.
Once the procedure is over, you will get special care package so you can relieve pain and maintain your white smile from home.
