Do you want a brighter summertime smile? We understand, as summer is a season to head outdoors and socialize with friends and family. To offer patients in Newhall, CA, professional results and significantly brighter smiles, we use a system that combines in-office and at-home teeth whitening. Let’s talk about the benefits of Zoom! Whitening.
Achieving a Brighter Smile
The treatment process begins with an initial office treatment. Employing a light and a special bleaching gel, we will perform the initial phase of the process. Next, we create a custom-made whitening tray and prescribe a powerful bleaching gel, sending you home with these items. At home, you will fill the trays with gel and wear them for about 30 to 45 minutes each day. The trays help spread the gel evenly across your smile. The total course of treatment takes about a week to ten days. At the end of the process, you may obtain a smile brightened by several shades! The process is also designed to reduce tooth sensitivity, a common complaint from people opting for over-the-counter whitening strips.
Maintaining Your New Results
Routine care and changes to your diet and daily habits could help your new results last for many months to come. First, avoid smoking or tobacco products, which stain teeth (and increase the risk of several forms of cancer). Also, be sure to cut back on drinks with dark pigments (soda, coffee, red wine, tea), as well as sugary foods and drinks, which could promote plaque buildup and discoloration. Brushing and flossing each day helps keep your smile bright, as does a routine six month cleanings. Also, remember that you can keep your trays and leftover gel for touch-ups in the future. We will help you make good choices to keep your smile bright and beautiful!
Masking Intrinsic Discoloration
While the Zoom! System easily addresses extrinsic stains, what about intrinsic discoloration? Intrinsic stains form below the tooth enamel, caused not by what we eat or drink, but by injury to the teeth, fluorosis, or tetracycline exposure. While we can remove minor intrinsic stains, severe staining may instead need to be masked. To accomplish this, we can use single visit dental bonding or apply lifelike dental veneers. Our team could even combine these two options for a cost-effective smile makeover.
