Teeth whitening is a cosmetic technique that uses certified safe-to-use chemicals to whiten discolored teeth to a lighter shade, making your teeth look brighter, whiter, and more visually pleasing. One type of teeth whitening we offer is Zoom chairside whitening.
Zoom chairside whitening is a cutting-edge dental whitening treatment. At the Center for Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, we offer this risk-free, efficient, and quick treatment.
The Zoom technique is straightforward, with only a few stages. First, we will apply a gel to your gums, then another gel to your teeth, and last, they brighten your teeth using the Zoom whitening gadget. Depending on the type, these operations must be repeated, often more than once.
How Does Zoom Whitening Work?
After our dentist applies the gel to your teeth, you can sit back and relax while the whitening treatment works on transforming your smile. Our dentist will then use the curing light to further activate the whitening gel.
Once the process is done, our dentist will remove any excess gel from your teeth and give instructions on properly maintaining your results. You may be asked to avoid certain foods and drinks that may stain your teeth or brush and floss your teeth after every meal to prevent staining from occurring again. We may also recommend certain products to help maintain the color of your new smile.
The Advantages of Zoom Whitening
In-office teeth whitening takes about an hour, while at-home treatments can take up to two weeks. With Zoom, we can whiten your teeth in as little as one hour at our dentist’s office and return home with a whiter smile. It is perfect for busy patients who do not want to spend weeks wearing a mouth tray filled with whitening gel.
Many patients are wary of visiting the dentist for cosmetic procedures because they are worried about discomfort and pain. But you can rest assured that you will not experience pain or sensitivity during our professional teeth-whitening procedure. Many patients compare the feeling to getting a filling from the dentist!
The professional strength bleaching agents in the Zoom system can get your teeth up to eight shades whiter in just one short treatment. That is more than most patients can get with over-the-counter treatments or an at-home kit from the store.
