LEARN THE TRUTH ABOUT WHITENING
With so many different whitening products on the market, it’s easy to get confused. So here are the facts you need to know before you commit.
IS TEETH WHITENING SAFE?
Yes. Clinical studies have shown that whitening your teeth with carbamide or hydrogen peroxide under the supervision of a dental professional is safe for teeth and gums.
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS?
The most common side effect is tooth and gum sensitivity. Prior to whitening, our doctors will ensure that you are a good candidate for whitening and go over all the details with you.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN OTC WHITENING SOLUTIONS AND PHILIPS ZOOM?
Over-the-counter whitening products are not customized to your needs. Our doctors tailor your teeth whitening process specifically for every patient.
HOW LONG WILL MY ZOOM WHITENING RESULTS LAST?
Whitening treatments help to reduce existing stains, but through consumption of coffee, soft drinks or just through natural aging, your teeth may eventually become discolored again. Maintenance whitening can help combat recurring discoloration.
WHAT CAUSES TEETH TO DISCOLOR?
There are many causes to tooth discoloration. Some of the most common include the consumption highly colored foods and drinks (berries, coffee, tea, red wine). Some medications, aging, smoking and trauma can also cause teeth discoloration.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
After visiting our office, your teeth can be up to eight shades whiter in 1 hour.This can be anything done to correct imperfections in the appearance of the mouth. Anyone who is unhappy with their smile can have it fixed. The upper teeth show, usually, only when smiling, while the lower teeth remain hidden. This is reversed when talking, with the upper teeth remaining hidden while the lower teeth show. The color, alignment, spacing as well as regularity of the teeth are the characteristics that give the overall appearance. Any of these can be repaired to give a stunning look to the mouth.We offer a wide variety of cosmetic options. Some of these options are whitening, smile design, recontouring of the shape of the teeth, veneers, bonding, and all ceramic/porcelain crowns.
WHITENING – INCLUDING One Hour Zoom!
This is the procedure of making teeth whiter, and therefore more attractive. Our office uses several methods: Zoom!, passive tray whitening, and professional strength white strips.Zoom! is a revolutionary tooth whitening procedure. It’s safe effective and fast, very fast. In just over an hour, your teeth will be dramatically whiter. The convenience of Zoom! in comparison to days of using strips or wearing trays makes it the perfect choice for the busy individual. The Zoom! Whitening procedure is simple. It begins with a short preparation to isolate your lips and gums. The clinician then applies the proprietary Zoom! whitening gel that is activated by a specially designed light. Teeth typically become at least six to ten shades whiter, sometimes more. A fluoride treatment completes the procedure. You’ll be amazed with the results. In most cases, teeth get even whiter the first few days after the procedure. Trays with gel are recommended afterward for maximum whitening and maintenance.
