Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments available — and for good reason. If you are embarrassed by a yellowed or dingy looking smile, you may have a tendency to hide it rather than reveal it to the world. Unfortunately, this can make other people perceive you as less friendly, less healthy or even less successful as a result. On the other hand, a healthy looking and bright smile can increase your self-confidence and make you look friendlier, healthier and more successful (not to mention more attractive!) to the world — including your romantic and business prospects.
At Ramona Family Dentistry, we offer the ZOOM! teeth whitening treatment, a one-hour, in-office treatment that typically produces brighter teeth that are eight shades lighter, yet still natural-looking.
What Does ZOOM! Teeth Whitening Correct?
ZOOM! teeth whitening uses a professional-grade whitener that is strong enough to work on the toughest tooth stains, yet safe enough to avoid damaging your teeth. ZOOM! teeth whitening addresses stains and discolorations caused by the following factors:
- Smoking or using tobacco
- Teeth-staining foods (tomato sauce, berries, etc.)
- Teeth-staining beverages (coffee, wine, etc.)
- Tooth injuries and infections
- Prescription medications
- Tooth discoloration from congenital disease
What Can You Expect from a ZOOM! Teeth Whitening Treatment?
The ZOOM! teeth whitening treatment is performed in our office, and takes approximately one hour (or less) to finish. The treatment is painless and you are free to listen to music, read, use your phone or just plain relax during the process.
The ZOOM! system includes a whitening gel with hydrogen peroxide and other bleaching ingredients that safely yet effectively bleach teeth. Once this whitening gel is applied to your teeth, Dr. Feely will use a special blue-wavelength light to activate the bleaching ingredients in the gel. This blue light, which is not ultraviolet and not harmful, will be shone on the teeth for about 20 minutes. Dr. Feely will then apply more whitening gel to the teeth and use the blue light again on them, repeating this process until the proper degree of whitening is achieved.
How Do You Maintain Your Beautiful New Smile?
After your treatment, your teeth will be instantly lighter — sometimes as much as 10 shades! To maintain the brightness of your smile, Dr. Feely recommends that you avoid smoking and limit habits such as consuming certain tooth-staining foods and beverages (beets, curry, coffee, wine, soda, etc.). It is also important, for your whitening results and your oral health in general, to maintain good oral hygiene habits like brushing and flossing regularly; brushing with a whitening toothpaste is also recommended. Regular dental cleanings will also prolong your whitening results.
