If you tend to hide your smile because your teeth are not as white as you’d like them to be, our Pensacola cosmetic dentist, Dr. Strickland can help you achieve a whiter, more radiant smile with Zoom professional teeth whitening.
Everyone loves having a white, bright smile. However, over time, teeth can lose their white appearance. Some medications have side effects that discolor teeth. Smoking and the use of tobacco products are not only dangerous to your health but also can leave dark stains on your teeth. Certain food and drinks can also stain and darken teeth, such as:
- Red Wine
Also, as you grow older, the outer layer of your tooth enamel wears away which causes your teeth to look dull and darker in color. Teeth whitening can help diminish the gradual darkening of your teeth that happens with time.
While there are many over-the-counter teeth-whitening products being advertised, most do not live up to all the hype as they simply fall short as far as results are concerned. But with the Philips Zoom professional teeth whitening system, you will enjoy very impressive and immediate results. With this gel and light-activated whitening system, we can dramatically lighten your teeth in just under an hour. In fact from the time you enter our office and the time you leave, your teeth could become up to eight shades lighter!
How the Procedure Works
In order to be a candidate for Zoom, your teeth and gums must be in good overall health. If there are stains, plaque or tartar on your teeth, you may be required to have your teeth professionally cleaned prior to your whitening treatment. If you have cavities, you may need to have them repaired first before whitening your teeth to avoid complications.
Prior to the whitening process, your cheeks, lips and gums will be protected so that only your teeth are exposed. Then the Zoom whitening gel, containing peroxide, is applied directly to your teeth. Next, Dr. Strickland will use the Zoom whitening UV light to activate the whitening gel. The light, when combined with the whitening gel penetrates the surface of the teeth to break up stains and discoloration. This process is repeated several different times during your one-hour visit. During the entire procedure, you will simply sit back and relax while the Zoom whitening system works to dramatically whiten and brighten your smile.
Impressive Results You’ll Love
Zoom is affordable, quick, convenient and safe. Unlike other teeth whitening options you can use at home (like whitening strips and whitening pens that take several days or even weeks to see results). Zoom will provide you with much better results in a far shorter time. While results vary from one person to the next, your smile will be noticeably whiter with Zoom.
Patients who’ve had their teeth professionally whitened with Zoom generally enjoy their whitening results for about one year although that is also dependent upon your genetics and habits. If you avoid consuming foods & drinks that stain teeth and smoking, you will have a better chance of maintaining your new, brighter smile. However, you can also help keep your smile bright and white between treatments with a Zoom whitening pen and periodic Zoom at home whitening.
