Teeth whitening treatments are used to effectively remove surface discolorations from the teeth. Although a lot of over-the-counter products such as gels, toothpaste, and mouth rinses promise to improve the color of your smile, professional strength whitening treatments administered in a clinical dental setting have been found to be safer and much more effective. Our office offers the popular Zoom! Teeth whitening brand to give you a whiter smile.
Teeth can become discolored for a variety of reasons including:
- Certain Foods & Drinks
- Certain medications
Zoom! is a very popular whitening process used to lighten the color of the dentin and enamel. The Zoom! in-office tooth whitening process utilizes Zoom Advanced Power Chairside Lamp which accelerates the whitening process. As the hydrogen peroxide in the gel breaks down, oxygen comes in contact with the enamel and dentin and removes discolorations and stains.
The whole process of professional teeth whitening typically takes under an hour to complete. The lips and gums are covered with protective dental shields, and the teeth are left exposed. The whitening gel is applied to the teeth and is allowed to sit so that the gel can penetrate the teeth and break down the discolorations. Once the gel is washed off, you will see a drastic improvement in the color of your teeth.
