Teeth can loose its natural white color over time, whether it is due to aging or due to consumption of staining foods and beverages, or due to smoking. Zoom Whitening is a revolutionary treatment that bleaches your teeth up to eight shades whiter. Unlike home whitening treatments, Zoom Whitening is safe, reliable and stress-free.
START WITH A DENTAL CONSULTATION
The first thing that you need to do is to consult with your dentist to determine whether Zoom Whitening is for you. Your dentist will ask you questions about your oral hygiene regime and lifestyle choices. Your dentist will also have to do a dental exam to determine whether your teeth and gums are fit for a teeth whitening procedure. If you’re planning any other dental procedures such as veneers, this will also affect the dentist’s recommendation on whether you need whitening or not. Sometimes your dentist will even recommend teeth whitening before a dental procedure to ensure that the color of your teeth matches up after the procedure.
HAVE A THOROUGH TEETH CLEANING
Before we can start the zoom whitening treatment, we recommend that you go for teeth cleaning with an oral hygienist before the actual procedure, especially if you haven’t gone in a while. If it has been a particularly long time since you’ve last gone for teeth cleaning, it may be worthwhile to do this first before considering a whitening treatment, as a teeth cleaning can also remove surface stains. If you still want to whiten your teeth after having your teeth cleaned then Zoom Whitening is the way to go.
HOW IT WORKS
Zoom Whitening works through a gel that is applied to your teeth. The gel is broken down with UV treatment which allows oxygen to enter the enamel that protects your teeth. It bleaches the colored substances and leaves your teeth intact. Treatments last for 45 minutes and can boost the whiteness of your teeth with up to eight shades! Another bonus is that there are practically zero long term side effects.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
A single treatment of Zoom Whitening can last up to 6 months, although it differs from person to person. Take-home whitening kits are available for in-home touch ups. There are also several things that you can do to ensure that your teeth stay whiter for longer:
- Decreasing your intake of coffee, tea, and red wine
- Avoiding sports drinks and sodas
- Minimizing your intake of sugary snacks
- Brushing with a mildly abrasive toothpaste
If after all these considerations, you decide that Zoom Whitening is the best course of action it will be best to have it applied by a dentist with experience in Zoom Whitening.
