If you want a white smile that looks natural, continue reading to learn the 3 benefits of Zoom teeth whitening.

FAST RESULTS

Unlike teeth whitening at home, your dentist will be able to give you a noticeably whiter smile in under an hour. Like the name suggests, Zoom teeth whitening is a quick procedure that’s easy to slip into a busy schedule. We recommend scheduling a consultation with your dentist to determine if Zoom whitening is right for your smile. 

Depending on the extent of tooth discoloration, our dentist may recommend porcelain veneers or other cosmetic dentistry options. For example, professional teeth whitening may not be the best choice for discoloration caused by dental fluorosis (mottled teeth caused by excessive fluoride intake). Dental veneers, however, would cover the fronts of your teeth so you smile and talk with confidence.

For slight tooth discoloration, our dentist will paint a whitening varnish on the surface of your teeth. Next, your dentist will apply a quick-drying sealant. Once 30 minutes have passed, your dentist will wipe away the varnish to reveal noticeably whiter teeth.

If you have severe tooth discoloration, your dentist will break up your appointment into 3 sessions, each lasting 15 minutes. After applying whitening gel to your teeth, your dentist will shine a special lamp to accelerate teeth bleaching. The light breaks down the hydrogen peroxide in the gel to lift tooth stains and whiten teeth.

To help you pass the time during your appointment, we recommend bringing your phone or other device that lets you listen to music. Once the procedure is over, we’ll give you a special care package so you can relieve pain and maintain your white smile from home.

CAN WHITEN TEETH AT HOME

Depending on the extent of tooth discoloration, your dentist may be able to give you supplies so you can try teeth whitening at home. If this is the case, your dentist will take an impression of your teeth to create a custom whitening tray. Whitening teeth at home means you’ll be able to whiten your teeth when it’s most convenient for you. 

PERFECT FOR SENSITIVE TEETH

Just because you have sensitive teeth, doesn’t mean you can’t try teeth whitening. The whitening gel and varnish we use is specially formulated as to not irritate teeth and gums. While some of our patients experience “zingers” or brief flashes of pain during treatment, many are willing to experience temporary discomfort if it means having whiter teeth. Also keep in mind that different people have different pain tolerances. One person’s negative experience doesn’t necessarily predict how you’ll react to Zoom whitening

If you wish to stop treatment at any time, let our dentist and his team know. If you have sensitive teeth, we are willing to work at a pace that’s comfortable to you. That way, you can feel in control of your treatment.
