Convenient and Effective Teeth Whitening with Zoom!®
As part of the natural aging process, your teeth can begin to look stained and yellow over time. Coffee, tea, or wine consumption are some of the several contributing factors for dental discoloration, along with the impact of smoking and certain medications.
Whatever the reason, stained teeth can cause you to feel self-conscious and lead you to seek out whitening solutions that brighten your teeth by multiple shades. Although there are hundreds of over-the-counter whitening kits available, not all provide the results you’re looking for.
If you have yet to receive the smile you desire from other treatments, it’s time to consult with Breakwater Dental to see if the Zoom!® Chairside Whitening System is right for you. This teeth whitening option provides patients in Brewster and communities throughout Cape Cod with rapid, noticeable results with little to no discomfort involved.
How Does Zoom!® Work?
Zoom!® consists of a gel solution that targets the dentin and enamel of your teeth. Using hydrogen peroxide as the active ingredient, our dentists will apply whitening gel to your teeth, where it will begin breaking down surface stains.
To enhance the whitening process, your dentist will use a halide light to heat and activate the gel. Due to the infrared properties of this specialized lamp, you should not experience discomfort or increased sensitivity. In addition, your enamel and gum tissue are not affected by treatment, remaining completely healthy throughout the process.
What’s the Procedure Like?
Every patient exhibits various levels of staining, which is why your procedure begins with a one-on-one consultation with our Brewster dentists. Drs. Timothy McAdams and David Quinton take the time to discuss your cosmetic concerns and provide you with treatment expectations to determine the degree of whitening you would like to see from Zoom!®.
Typically, if your teeth and gums are currently healthy, you are a candidate for Zoom!® teeth whitening. However, to ensure you oral health is appropriate and to prepare you for the procedure, our dentists will perform an examination and cleaning.
During whitening, we will provide eye protection for the halide light as well as a splashguard to keep the hydrogen peroxide from staining your clothing or anything other than your teeth.
What Can You Expect After Treatment?
Many patients achieve results that are 6-10 shades brighter compared with the initial hue of their teeth. Some patients even notice an increase in brilliance in the first few days following treatment.
To help maintain your results, our dentists may recommend that you use a specialized toothpaste and oral rinse along with daily flossing. Refraining from smoking or drinking beverages known to stain teeth is also helpful in the long-term maintenance of your newly brightened smile. Occasional re-treatment with Zoom!® Weekender can ensure your smile keeps a lasting shine, and receiving routine examinations and cleanings at our Brewster practice regularly may keep your teeth healthy for years to come.
