A white, healthy smile can brighten an entire room. Sadly, some foods, drinks and lifestyle habits can stain your teeth and leave them less than white. In fact, over time, your teeth can get heavily layered with stains and may turn yellow, gray or even brown in color. Thanks to numerous whitening procedures available these days, you do not have to settle for stained or discolored teeth. In fact, Zoom teeth whitening is one of the most effective in-office whitening treatments available nowadays.

Zoom Teeth whitening can safely and effectively whiten teeth by up to eight shades in just one hour. Many patients will receive dramatic results from the whitening solution, which is painted directly onto teeth before being activated with the special Zoom light. The treatment, which is repeated three to four times over the course of an hour, provides individuals with whiter, brighter teeth safely and effectively.

If you have deeply stained teeth or want a boost in your appearance, Zoom whitening may be right for you. The best candidates for Zoom whitening will be at least 13 years old, and their teeth will be fully erupted. Visible restorations, such as veneers, crowns, dental fillings or dental bonding, will not lighten with Zoom whitening, so those who have such restorations on their front teeth may not be appropriate candidates. Your teeth and gums should be healthy, strong and free of dental diseases. Women who are pregnant or lactating are not suitable candidates for Zoom teeth whitening or other teeth whitening treatments. Results may not be as notable for individuals who suffer from intrinsic stains, such as those caused by medications or trauma to the tooth.

Zoom is best for those who prefer a fast, highly effective whitening procedure. Unlike trays or strips, Zoom whitening does not need multiple applications over days or weeks before you can enjoy visible results. Contrary to over-the-counter teeth whitening products, Zoom whitening will be administered by a dental professional who will work to make sure you enjoy the safest whitening experience possible. Adverse reactions to Zoom are rare. Sometimes some patients will experience mild tooth sensitivity, or zingers, for a day or two after treatment.

When you have had Zoom teeth whitening, you can preserve your brighter smile by avoiding coffee, tea, soft drinks, sports drinks and smoking, which are some of the most common staining habits. Brushing twice daily and flossing daily will help stop plaque and tartar buildup, which can leave your teeth looking stained or discolored. Visit your dentist twice a year, and use your touch-up kits as directed to guarantee a whiter, healthier smile for life.

Although Zoom is a safe, effective whitening procedure for most individuals, it is not suitable for all patients. A comprehensive exam prior to treatment can help you determine whether Zoom teeth whitening is right for you.
