Whitening your teeth can improve your smile and enhance your overall confidence. In this article, our team at Torrens Dental Care dives into all you need to know about how Zoom teeth whitening can benefit you.
What is Zoom Teeth Whitening?
It may surprise you that over half of North Americans feel anxious about their smiles. It could be for many reasons, such as bad breath or crooked or discolored teeth.
With Zoom teeth whitening in North Naples, you can brighten and whiten your smile and increase your confidence. Despite our best efforts to maintain an excellent oral hygiene routine of brushing and flossing, teeth can still become discolored. While over-the-counter teeth whitening can seem like the cheap and easy choice for whitening your smile, the results often don’t last long and can end up looking less than desirable. It is best to visit a dentist near you for professional whitening for a smile that stuns.
Zoom teeth whitening is an effective and fast teeth whitening method used at our dental office in North Naples. Zoom whitening is unique because it takes only one hour to complete. It uses a peroxide gel safe for oral tissues and unlikely to cause much sensitivity. When the gel is activated under ultraviolet light, it settles into the tooth enamel to give you a glowing white smile.
Who is Eligible for Zoom Teeth Whitening?
You will need to speak with our dentist at Torrens Dental Care to determine if you are a good candidate for teeth whitening in North Naples. Here are some good signs that you are eligible for teeth whitening:
- You have no kinds of dental restorations such as crowns, veneers, or fillings
- You do not have any known allergies to whitening gels
- You are older than 13 years of age
- You have healthy gums and teeth
If you are nursing or pregnant, you should also steer clear of Zoom teeth whitening because it is unclear if the bleaching agent is safe for infants.
How Does the Zoom Whitening Procedure Work?
Before our dentist can whiten your teeth, they must clean them to ensure the surface is smooth and the peroxide can properly penetrate your tooth enamel. After this, they will insert a mouthguard to keep your lips away from your teeth. They will then carefully apply the peroxide gel to your teeth. You may notice some slight tingling while it is on your teeth, but this is completely normal. The gel will stay on your teeth for 15 minutes while activated under ultraviolet light. Most of the time, the entire session lasts about one hour, and you will see an immediate improvement in your smile as soon as it is complete.
Most of the time, your Zoom whitening results will last for about six months with proper oral hygiene. Avoiding foods and beverages that can stain your teeth, such as tea, coffee, and berries, is a good idea to prolong your results. It is especially important in the first 48 hours after treatment. You can also use whitening toothpaste for your oral care routine to maintain your stunning results.
