Nowadays, there are so many different teeth whitening solutions available to buy at your local drug store, the idea of having your teeth professionally whitened might seem unnecessary. But what if you knew that the products used in those store-bought kits are less effective, causing you to buy more in an attempt to achieve somewhat decent results? Instead of wasting your money, find out how and why Zoom! Whitening is a more worthwhile investment.

What is Zoom! Whitening?

Zoom! Whitening is an in-office treatment that can have you seeing a brighter, whiter smile in around an hour! This special system uses a high-grade bleaching gel, which is 25% hydrogen peroxide, to break down and blast away stubborn stains and discoloration. Through the process, patients can watch as their smile become up to 8 shades whiter, all without harming your teeth or mouth in any way!

What is the Process for Zoom! Whitening?

The first step to achieving a brighter smile is to schedule a consultation with your dentist. During this visit, they will evaluate your smile and determine if your oral health is in good enough shape to move forward with teeth whitening.

Once you’ve been given the green light, you will schedule your appointment to receive treatment. Prior to the start of your teeth whitening process, your dental team will place a protective barrier over your gums and lips. This will prevent the whitening gel from coming into contact with your soft tissues and causing irritation. Once the gel is placed on your teeth, a special light will be used to blast away stains. You can expect this process to occur in three sessions, each lasting 15 minutes.

Before your treatment is finished, your dentist will apply a sensitivity-reducing paste to your teeth. In about an hour, you’ll see dramatic results that cannot be achieved with your regular over-the-counter whitening kit.  

How Long Will Your Results Last?

How long your teeth whitening treatment lasts is dependent on how well you take care of your teeth. If you immediately return to drinking dark-colored beverages or begin smoking, you can expect to need a touch-up in no time at all. However, if you maintain a good oral hygiene regime, avoid drinks that are prone to staining your teeth, stop smoking, and maintain regular dental checkups and cleanings with your dentist, you can enjoy your new and improved, whiter smile for longer.

If you’re going to spend the money to whiten your smile, don’t throw it away on store-bought products. Instead, invest in a professional solution that will have you seeing results faster and longer. A brighter smile not only improves your appearance, but it also gives you the boost of confidence you might need.
