Want a Whiter Smile in One Hour? Your Dentist in Laredo TX has All the Right Answers!
Zoom! Whitening is one of the newer teeth whitening crazes that have been slowly but surely sweeping the nation! Since it is still a relatively new topic, people are wondering what Zoom! Whitening is, what it does, and what makes it better than the rest. Thankfully, your dentist in Laredo TX is here to answer these questions for you!
To start, Zoom! Whitening is a professional bleaching process that uses a power chairside lamp that accelerates the bleaching to activate 25% hydrogen peroxide whitening. As the hydrogen peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel that’s being whitened to bleach the stained substances.
The procedure takes about 45 minutes to an hour, where the dentist will apply the Zoom! hydrogen peroxide whitening gel. The gel will sit there for 15 minutes while the light is activated, starting the process. This is repeated two more times, albeit the 45-minute session. When the dentist is finished, they will apply a sensitivity-inducing fluoride.
Before deciding if Zoom! Whitening is right for you, your dentist will do a thorough examination of your teeth and gums. They will discuss oral hygiene and your lifestyle habits, seeing if this is the right procedure for you and if you specifically with benefit from it, as opposed to over-the-counter whitening kits. To keep up with your white smile after this procedure, it’s important that the patient understands to keep up with proper oral hygiene like brushing and flossing twice a day while also watching what they eat and drink to avoid staining.
This process is simple, safe and gives you the best smile that fits you and only you! It’s practically painless since your dentist goes out of their way to protect your gums and lips while the whitening is being done.
