Zoom Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is one of the most common cosmetic treatments requested by patients and remains one of the most economical ways to enhance your smile. Your smile creates an immediate, subconscious, visual impact on people you meet. A brighter smile gives the impression of youth, vitality, radiant health, happiness, and warmth. A bright smile is perceived as a healthy smile.
As we age, our adult teeth often become darker, yellower, or stained. This is partly why white teeth make people appear more youthful. In addition to the aging process, drinking coffee, tea, soda, red wine, and smoking could result in discoloration and darkening of the teeth. There are various ways to whiten your teeth. Zoom Professional Teeth Whitening is easy and safe, and it is a method used globally to remove discoloration from enamel and dentin. You can achieve a whiter smile and confidence for years to come for a fraction of the cost of a new smartphone.
Professional tooth whitening in a dental office provides very effective and fast results. Even though strong agents are applied, the rest of the mouth, including the gums, is protected from these materials. The Zoom professional teeth whitening procedure employs a chairside lamp to activate the hydrogen peroxide gel to break down the stains from the surface of the teeth and from within the enamel and dentin, while leaving the tooth structure unaffected.
What to Expect on Your Visit
On your visit, Dr. Hakham will complete a visual examination of your teeth and gums and discuss your dietary and oral hygiene habits to ensure you are a candidate for professional in office teeth whitening. In general, a teeth cleaning is recommended prior to whitening your teeth to remove any plaque, tartar, calculus, or hard stains present on your teeth. Once you and Dr. Hakham have agreed that you would benefit from Zoom Teeth Whitening, your lips and gums will be covered in preparation for the procedure. The hydrogen peroxide whitening gel will then be applied to your teeth, and the Zoom light will be initiated. The activated whitening gel will penetrate the teeth to break up the stains and discoloration. This cycle will be active for 15 minutes, while you relax, watch TV, or listen to music. The cycle is repeated for a total of three times.
Some sensitivity is expected during and after the procedure. Patients with sensitive teeth, a strong gag reflex, or anxiety may find it challenging to complete the three sessions. Use of anti-sensitivity toothpaste is recommended prior and following the whitening appointment to reduce the symptoms. This sensitivity will dissipate. Dr. Hakham will provide you with specific instructions to help reduce the sensitivity.
Aftercare and Post Operative Instructions
Your teeth are slightly dehydrated after the whitening procedure and can absorb the color of any food or drink you consume. The rehydration of the teeth takes about 3 to 7 day. To help maintain the results of the Zoom Teeth Whitening, we advise you to avoid any foods or beverages that could potentially stain your teeth. These include tea, coffee, red wine, soda, blueberry, strawberry, etc. In addition, smoking may stain your teeth after whitening and is not recommended. Continue a proper Oral Hygiene Routine, including regular brushing and flossing, and keep up with your regularly scheduled teeth cleaning appointments to maintain your white pearly smile.
