Have a special event coming up or simply want to revive your smile? Whiten your teeth professionally in one visit with Zoom whitening treatment from your Prairie Village, KS dentists. Zoom whitening is the most effective whitening treatment available on the market.
What is Zoom Whitening?
Zoom whitening is an in-office bleaching system that can lighten your teeth up to 10 shades in one short appointment. The effects of whitening vary from person to person, and the final shade depends on the condition and color of your teeth pre-whitening. Most patients see a significant difference in the color and appearance of their teeth after only one session.
The procedure is split into three 15-minute sessions. First, your dentist will protect your teeth and gums before applying a highly-concentrated peroxide gel to the enamel. Your teeth are then exposed to a special lamp that boosts the whitening process. The heat releases oxygen that bleaches your teeth without sensitivity or discomfort. The peroxide is rinsed off, and a new coating is applied.
After treatment, you will receive fluoride treatment to strengthen the enamel and further minimize teeth sensitivity. You will also receive a whitening touch-up kit that you can use at home to keep your smile white and bright for a long time.
Is Zoom Whitening Right for You?
Zoom whitening is performed on healthy teeth, so there should be no extensive decay, tooth damage or gum disease. If present, your dentist in Prairie Village, KS will treat these problems first and reschedule your whitening appointment. Whitening is also not recommended for people with light sensitivity, those who are taking certain medications, and women who are nursing, pregnant or suspect they are pregnant.
Dr. Smith will perform a thorough mouth evaluation during consultation to determine if you are a good candidate for Zoom whitening. Sometimes, a thorough cleaning is all you need to remove stains and spots.
