Medical conditions, medications, aging, and stain-producing substances such as coffee, tea, tobacco, and red wine can cause teeth discoloration. To remove stains and bring back your bright, beautiful smile, professional teeth whitening is often recommended.
While over-the-counter bleaching products are easy to find, they often take forever to work. There’s also a risk of overuse and burned gums. If your teeth are stained or discolored, your dentists in Waterford provide Zoom! in-office and at-home teeth bleaching for the safest, most effective way to whiten teeth.
Zoom! whitening is a clinically-proven power bleaching system that works better and faster than other treatments. In just one 45-minute appointment, Zoom! can brighten your teeth up to 8 shades. It’s also safe and kind to teeth and gums.
In-office teeth whitening with Zoom! begins with a thorough examination of your teeth and gums. Whitening is done on healthy teeth. If decay, gum disease, or other problems are detected, they must be treated first before teeth bleaching. For best results, cleaning prior to teeth bleaching is also recommended.
To whiten teeth, peroxide gel is applied three times in 15-minute intervals. Next, your teeth are exposed to the Zoom! lamp to boost the bleaching process. Fluoride paste is also used to protect the teeth and reduce sensitivity.
