How Zoom Teeth Whitening Works
When you visit Tryon Family Dentistry, your dentist will examine your oral health and let you know if we can perform a cosmetic treatment like Zoom. If we detect cavities, problems with your gums, or other issues, we’ll treat these conditions first to ensure the procedure is successful and pain free. If we can clear you for the Zoom treatment, here’s how the procedure will go:
- Thoroughly clean your teeth so that the treatment is applied to clean teeth rather than any buildup
- Add a special cream to your lips to prevent irritation
- Use a retractor to gently lift your lips and expose your teeth
- Have you bite down and rest your tongue on a small cup
- Show you a shade guide to help you decide how white you would like your teeth
- Place gauze in your cheeks, attach a bib to wear around your neck and provide you with special glasses so that only your teeth are exposed to the whitening solution
- Apply a special topical solution to your teeth and gums
- Brush specially formulated whitening gel on your teeth
- Activate a laser light on your teeth to activate the whitening solution
- Re-apply the whitening gel until your smile and teeth are at the whiteness and brightness level you’d like
After this process, any remaining whitening gel will be wiped away and a finishing product will be applied. Since the entire Zoom procedure only takes 45 minutes to an hour, you won’t have to dedicate hours and hours of time to achieve the beautiful smile you’ve been dreaming of. With Zoom, you can enjoy a safe, effective, and long-lasting teeth whitening method that will leave you with a confident smile.
Benefits of Zoom Teeth Whitening
Equipped with the understanding of how Zoom teeth whitening works, lets take a closer look at the benefits it can offer you. Perhaps the obvious and major benefit of Zoom is the fact that it is a quick and easy treatment that will provide you with the white teeth and gleaming smile you have always wanted. While at-home whitening systems must be used repeatedly for weeks on end in order to achieve results, Zoom works quickly. All you have to do is sit back, relax, and let your dentist take care of the Zoom process in about an hour or so. Zoom is the ideal whitening system for people who lead a busy life and don’t have the time to commit to an at-home over the counter whitening system.
Next, the results that you get from Zoom teeth whitening are dramatic and easy to maintain. As mentioned, Zoom can give you teeth that are eight shades whiter. To maintain your pearly whites, you can use at-home whitening trays between Zoom treatments. Of course, you are also welcome to schedule another visit at Tryon Family Dentistry for your next Zoom treatment.
Lastly, Zoom teeth whitening is very safe and completely painless. Since it is performed by a dentist, you will not have to worry about any kind pain or discomfort. In fact, Zoom is one of the safest and most comfortable cosmetic dentistry procedures available and will never damage your teeth, gums, or soft tissues. If you choose to get a Zoom treatment, you may experience minor tingling that fades quickly. Fortunately, most of our patients don’t experience any tingling or discomfort at all.
Frequently Asked Questions About Professional Teeth Whitening
Will Professional Teeth Whitening Remove Coffee Stains?
Yes. With Zoom professional tooth whitening, you can safely and easily remove the coffee or tea stains your teeth have built up over time.
What is the Best Shade for My Teeth?
Another routine question patients ask is “what is the best shade for my teeth.” The truth is there is no “normal” shade of white. However, it’s a good idea to try to achieve a color of white that matches the whites of your eyes. While some of our patients are looking for a soft, natural shade of white, others prefer a brillian white smile that many celebrities have. Our dentists will help you determine the level of whitening that can help you meet your aesthetic goals and turn your dream smile into a reality.
Does Professional Teeth Whitening Affect Fillings, Crowns, or Veneers?
Great news, teeth whitening has minimal or no effect on restorative dental products like crowns or fillings. In some cases, it can reduce the strength of enamel used in composite restorations. For this, and other reasons, we recommend to check with your dentist before undergoing a Zoom tooth whitening procedure.
Do Whitening Toothpastes Work?
Some people do not realize that whitening toothpaste usually clean surface stains. In other words, they don’t actually change the color of your teeth. While you will notice less yellow and discoloration, your teeth will not actually become whiter.
