Teeth can become dingy and stained quite easily. As you go about your daily life enjoying coffee, tea, colas, berries, curries and other favorite foods and beverages, your teeth are quietly absorbing stains. If you smoke, your teeth may soak up even more color, which results in a yellow or brown tint. Brushing alone may eliminate minor surface stains, but it is not enough to eliminate those stains deep within the enamel. Zoom whitening can help you regain your white, healthy-looking smile in just about an hour.
Zoom teeth whitening, which has been featured on TV’s “Extreme Makeover,” uses a strong bleaching gel that is painted directly onto your teeth. The gel is activated using a special light, and this unique combination can result in teeth that are eight shades whiter than before. Your gums and lips will be protected before the application of the gel, and then it will be reapplied every 15 minutes. Your teeth will be brighter and whiter immediately.
Anyone with moderate to severe staining may be interested in Zoom whitening, but is it the right choice for everyone? Zoom is an extremely effective teeth-whitening procedure that has been proven to be safe. Side effects are few and most commonly include increased tooth sensitivity, which can be reduced by using fluoride treatments immediately after whitening. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, have periodontal disease, dental veneers, dental crowns, worn dental enamel or visible fillings, however, Zoom whitening may not be right for you. Your dentist can help you better determine your own personal teeth-whitening options, which may include dental veneers or other treatments.
The effects of Zoom are extremely long lasting, but you can capitalize on your results by brushing twice daily and flossing daily to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Visit your West Hollywood cosmetic dentist twice a year, and use your touch-up kit as directed. Limit lifestyle habits that can contribute to staining, such as smoking or coffee drinking, to help maintain your brighter new smilelonger. If your dentist provides you with touch-up kits, they should be used as directed in order to keep your dazzling smile.
