Zoom! Professional Teeth Whitening is a professional whitening treatment that is performed in the dental office. Over-the-counter whitening products and whitening toothpastes contain modest amounts of whitening ingredients and can’t whiten your teeth as effectively as professional whitening can. Whitening in a dental office is safe because your gums are protected from the whitening agents, but the stronger ingredients dentists use for whitening result in whiter teeth in a shorter time.
Many at-home whitening products can effectively remove surface stains on tooth enamel. Stains that penetrate the enamel and darken the next layer, the dentin, are still visible because the enamel is translucent. Zoom whitening works by penetrating the tooth enamel and breaking up stains on the dentin. With Zoom, all stains are removed, so nothing shows but white teeth.
There are several Zoom whitening products, and which one is best for you can be decided during a consultation appointment with the dentist. Teeth whitening procedures in the office are generally short, but repeat visits are usually needed before results begin to be seen. It is possible to have visible results the same day as your first whitening with certain Zoom products.
Zoom also offers at-home whitening kits. These are purchased from the dentist and can be used as the only whitening procedure or in combination with in-office procedures.
The results of teeth whitening can last a long time, but smoking or consumption of staining foods and beverages will gradually stain teeth again. Zoom at-home whitening can help to maintain your white smile. Zoom at-home whitening kits include trays that are customized to your mouth. This ensures that the whitening gel will only come in contact with your teeth and not your gums.
Your first step to whiter teeth and a more beautiful smile begins with a consultation. Call now to set up an appointment to discuss Zoom whitening and learn how it can best work for you.
