As hard as you may try to prevent it, it’s inevitable that your teeth become discolored over time. You use a straw to drink and you try to avoid coffee and tea as much as possible, but staining still happens. And even the whitening toothpaste that you’re using isn’t helping. So, what’s a person to do? Leave it to the professionals with Zoom teeth whitening in Phoenix, AZ. Keep reading to learn all about professional teeth whitening and Zoom!
The verdict is in: Zoom! whitening is the most effective in-office system available today. Here’s how the treatment will be performed. First, your gums and lips will be covered with a special shield. Next, the Zoom! whitening formula is applied to the teeth and activated under a high-powered light. The combination allows the hydrogen peroxide gel to penetrate the tooth’s surface to break up stains. Before beginning your treatment, you will be evaluated to make sure you are a good candidate for teeth whitening. Patients with gum disease and tooth decay should first undergo restorative treatment before any elective cosmetic procedure can be successfully completed. The whole whitening process can be completed in about an hour.
It’s a question that’s asked a lot since tooth sensitivity is one consideration for any type of dental treatment. If you are prone to extreme sensitivity, you should discuss this with your dentist prior to the procedure. Sometimes the use of an anti-sensitivity toothpaste a few weeks before your whitening treatment can help alleviate this concern.
After your treatment, you can maintain your results by practicing good oral hygiene and continuing to have a dental exam and professional cleaning twice a year.
