Teeth whitening is a safe and effective procedure of whitening your teeth. The process involves the use of a mild solution, placed in a custom-fitted tray, that is worn over your teeth. No natural tooth structure is lost and no anesthetic is required.
It is considered a conservative method of lightening teeth.
If you are not pleased with the color of your teeth, then you may be a good candidate for the teeth whitening procedure. The coloration of teeth has always been an important feature of our smile. However, not every candidate gets same results. Before the procedure is done it is reccomended to discuss with your dental professional and understand the final result may or may not meet your innitial expectations.
A number of factors can contribute to tooth discoloration. Tooth color is largely a matter of inherited tendencies. Some of us are born with the tendency for lighter (or darker) teeth.
Generally, there are two different types of tooth-whitening systems. Active or “In Office Whitening”, which takes place in the dental office, and passive or “Home Take Whitening”.
Regardless of which type of system is best for you, it is important to follow your dentist’s professional recommendations.
Your dentist will offer you the best and safest treatment available.
In Office Professional Teeth Whitening, ZOOM! is a “light-activated” chairside whitening procedure and a perfect solution for patients who desire immediate results. Clinical studies have proved this technology can brighten your teeth an average of eight shades in one visit. The procedure often takes average 90 minutes to complete.
“Take-Home” whitening process involves the fabrication of a custom fit bleaching tray made specifically to fit the patient’s mouth. A small amount of whitening solution is placed in the tray. When the tray is placed in the mouth the solution comes in contact with the teeth and causes oxidization of the stains, the result being brighter and whiter teeth.
This appliance will be worn for a period of days or weeks as needed case by case. In many cases, night-time application alone is sufficient to achieve the results you desire. You will need to return to your dental office periodically. These appointments ensure that the whitening system is working effectively, and your teeth and gums remain healthy.
For the healthiest gums use these formulas for brushing, flossing, massaging gums, mouth-rinses, proxa-brushes, sulca-brushes, rubber-tip stimulators to overcome sensitive teeth, to ease the recovery of oral surgery, and for general overall cavity prevention.
A beautiful smile can give patients a lifetime of happiness!
