Tooth discoloration is a common problem in people around the world. Regardless of the efforts you put into practicing oral hygiene activities, the problem is inevitable. Many factors cause discoloration of your teeth. For instance, lifestyle habits like smoking or chewing tobacco, drinking alcohol, consuming acidic foods and beverages, etc., cause your teeth to stain.
While regular brushing and flossing may remove your extrinsic stains, you need to opt for an in-office whitening treatment to remove deep stains from your teeth. When you visit our clinic to whiten your teeth, the Dentist in Las Vegas, NV, performs zoom teeth whitening for the best results.
What is Zoom Teeth Whitening?
Zoom teeth whitening uses an advanced bleaching solution like laser whitening to remove stains and other discoloration from your teeth, thus making them pearly white. It is an effective procedure suitable for people of all ages. The treatment finishes within a single visit only. The best advantage of opting for zoom whitening treatment is that the results of this procedure may last for as long as four years.
This procedure delivers faster results than any other whitening treatment and is perfect for patients with sensitive teeth.
How is Zoom Whitening Performed?
We will cover your lips and gums with a rubber-like substance so that they do not get exposed to the bleaching agent. We will also offer you an eye protector to save your eyes from the special lighting we use for the procedure.
We will apply some whitening gel comprising hydrogen peroxide all over the surface of your teeth. After this, we will use a zoom light on your teeth for 15 minutes. The process is repeated 3-4 times. The role of this light is to empower the whitening gel to penetrate the enamel more and release oxygen into your dentin. The whole procedure completes within 90 minutes. You may feel mild sensitivity after the procedure, but it settles within a day.
What is the Aftercare of this Treatment?
After the procedure, we will give you a Zoom home-use touch-up kit, including custom-fitted whitening trays. We will instruct you when and how to use the kit. At the same time, we will advise you not to consume various foods and beverages like tea, red wine, coffee, soda, etc.
Follow a proper oral hygiene routine to prevent stains from forming. We may also suggest toothpaste comprising whitening agents to maintain the effects of this procedure.
