Brighten Your Smile With Our Zoom!® Teeth Whitening Treatment

No one’s teeth stay a bright, pearly white forever, but you can regain much of that vibrancy. Everything from genetic factors to foods and beverages you consume can change the color of your teeth. Zoom!® teeth whitening treatment provides a powerful and effective way to find your way back to a brighter, more youthful-looking smile.

Causes of tooth discoloration

Even with the best oral hygiene practices, you’re likely to notice color changes in the surfaces of your teeth over time. Even brushing your teeth, while crucial, can play a role in breaking down the white enamel, exposing the yellowish or grayish underlayer known as the dentin. 

Other factors that expedite tooth discoloration include: 

Having braces can also contribute to color changes in your teeth by making it more difficult to keep particular areas clean.

Professional whitening versus home whitening

Many people find the range of at-home tooth whitening treatments appealing, but they aren’t ideal for everyone. If you have sensitive teeth or gums, for example, custom-made trays provided by your dentist after Zoom! teeth whitening treatment can help lower your risk of irritation. 

Dr. Boukadoum can also help ensure that your gums are fully protected during the treatment. Professional teeth whitening also works faster than at-home kits. So if you have a busy schedule or want to skip the hassle of having to wear a tray daily, one professional session at the dental office may be your smartest option. 

Professional treatments can also include a cleaning beforehand, which can make your results more pronounced. A standard Zoom! whitening appointment takes only about 45 minutes and lightens your teeth by up to eight shades. Your results can last for years. 

Making the most of Zoom! 

To make the most out of your Zoom! treatment, be sure to follow all of Dr. Boukadoum’s preparation and follow up instructions. You’ll need to avoid foods and drinks that tend to stain your teeth, as well as colored mouthwash for several days, for example. You may also be given trays to continue the whitening process at home. In addition, continue to take the best care of your teeth moving forward. 

To get on the path to a whiter, brighter smile soon, call 54th Street Dental or request an appointment on our website.
