Many of our patients inquire about whitening their teeth and the effectiveness of various whitening methods.
The ZOOM!® teeth whitening system is a safe, effective and fast way to brighten your teeth in a single office visit. The ZOOM! procedure is much more convenient than wearing trays or strips, making it a great choice for our busy patients. Not only that, but ZOOM! is the best teeth whitening method that we can recommend to you since our experienced team are administering the teeth whitening gel and ensuring that it is used in the most effective way.
ZOOM!® teeth whitening is done in the office during one visit of an hour or two. At your appointment, we apply a gentle, hydrogen peroxide-based whitening gel to your teeth. The gel is then exposed to a high-intensity light. After the treatment, your teeth will be up to 6-10 shades whiter.
There are many teeth whitening products sold at retail stores that may offer whitening strips and trays, or even resort to hydrogen peroxide teeth whitening at home. While such methods can improve the shades of your teeth, they are inconsistent and potentially dangerous ways to go about this type of treatment. For this reason, it is important to let our trained dental professionals improve and brighten your smile in the most effective and safe way. ZOOM! teeth whitening works quickly, but it will also free you from the stress, risk, and uncertainty associated with at-home whitening.
The at-home whitening options such as teeth whitening toothpastes, strips, and mouthwash can be an effective way at home to maintain your bright smile and preserve the shade of your teeth. If however, you are concerned about your teeth due to genetics, staining from drinks/smoking/anti-biotics, or poor dental hygiene, these at-home whitening methods are unlikely to make a big difference. ZOOM! Whitening is a proven method when it comes to significantly brightening your smile.
Dentist-supervised whitening is one of the safest and most conservative cosmetic dental treatments available. ZOOM! teeth whitening is cost effective when comparing to the need for month after month applications of home whitening remedies. With ZOOM!, the results are both better and longer lasting than at-home methods. Also, ZOOM! Teeth Whitening ensures you are safe from swallowing potentially harmful chemicals that are found in whitening strips, toothpastes, and hydrogen peroxide whitening mouthwash. The most common side effect is an increased tooth sensitivity to cold for 1-3 days after treatment.
