One of the easiest and least expensive ways to improve the appearance of your smile is with teeth whitening products. Although there are a variety of over-the-counter products available, none of them are as effective as professional whitening products. And of all the professional products available, the one that we believe produces the most dramatic results is the one we offer to our Mansfield, TX, area patients – Zoom! whitening.
Are You a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?
Almost any patient with adult, permanent teeth may be a good candidate for having their teeth whitened, but there are some exceptions. Whitening is not recommended for children, for example. And if you have tooth decay, you should have whatever dental work is necessary done before you have your teeth whitened. People who have very sensitive teeth may experience an even greater level of sensitivity after whitening. Although that sensitivity usually goes away fairly quickly, some people don’t like experiencing that discomfort. It’s also important to remember that dental work – such as fillings, crowns, bridges, etc. – won’t be affected by whitening products.
What You Need to Know About Zoom! Whitening
The Zoom! process involves using a 25% hydrogen peroxide solution and a lamp specifically designed for the whitening procedure. The first step is to apply the solution on the patient’s teeth, then have the patient sit under the Zoom! Chairside Lamp for 15 minutes. That same procedure is typically done three to four times, meaning that the entire process usually takes about 2 hours to complete. Patients are also provided with custom-fitted trays and additional solution to take home, allowing them to repeat the whitening process as often as necessary to keep their teeth as white as they would like.
