Your smile is one of the first things you notice when you meet someone - and it's one of the first things they notice about you.
A whiter, brighter smile is beautiful - it can help you feel make a memorable impression and feel better about yourself.
Stained teeth are inevitable due to our consumption of a variety of foods and drinks (soda, spicy food, coffee, etc.). However, advanced teeth whitening technology has enabled dentists to whiten teeth without adversely affecting the tooth structure.
Almost all whitening methods are similar in concept, but some are much more effective because of the way the whitening material is delivered to the teeth. Another contributing factor is the concentration of the material, which is why less potent over-the-counter whitening systems usually don’t give patients the results they are hoping for.
The two main methods of professional whitening are tray whitening and in-office whitening. In tray whitening, an impression is taken and a custom tray is made for the patient. Then, a supply of whitening gel is given to the patient and he/she wears the tray for a few hours each day (techniques differ) for a period of time until an acceptable result is achieved. Sensitivity of the teeth is a normal side-effect of this whitening method and is almost always transitional.
On the other hand, in-office whitening is the most efficient means of whitening. There are a number of different types used, but the process is very similar for these methods; you can have your teeth whitened in one session and achieve significant results. Your dentist can give you more detailed information and help you decide which method is more suitable for you and your teeth.
Your lifestyle and the aging process can stain and darken your teeth. Many things we do on a regular basis can contribute to stained teeth, such as drinking coffee, tea, cola and red wine or smoking.
Other whitening systems don't compare to the Zoom! Chairside Whitening System. Nothing whitens better or faster.
How it Works:
The procedures is simple. It begins with a short preparation to cover your lips and gums, leaving only your teeth exposed. We then applies the proprietary Zoom! whitening gel, which was designed to be used specifically with the Zoom! light. The light and gel work together to gently penetrate your teeth, breaking up the stains and discoloration.
The gel is applied for 3-4 fifteen minute sessions for a total treatment time of 45-60 minutes. During this time you can relax.
