It’s summertime, and from weddings and reunions to long nights under the stars, there are a million reasons to smile during July, August, and September. Your cosmetic dentist in Virginia Beach can help your teeth really sparkle this time of year with an in-office Zoom! Whitening treatment! This method of bleaching breaks through even the most stubborn stains, brightening teeth up to eight shades in just one, one hour appointment.
Who Is Teeth Whitening Good For?
Many patients can benefit from a professional teeth whitening treatment, as most people’s teeth gradually darken or discolor over time. As we get older, the tooth enamel naturally becomes more brittle and less resistant to stains. People who drink lots of dark beverages, smokers, and those who have taken certain medications may notice especially significant discoloration. Insufficient oral hygiene (i.e. lazy brushing and flossing habits) also take a toll.
Zoom! Whitening is the leading solution for in-office tooth whitening. It’s a perfect option for people who have a little more to spend on whitening, who are less prone to tooth sensitivity, and who are looking for the maximum results.
How Does Zoom! Whitening Work?
All whitening treatments are most effective when performed on clean teeth. If Zoom! is the best option for you, we will begin by removing all the biofilm (plaque and tartar) from the surface of your teeth. Once your smile is sparkling clean, we will begin by covering up your gums, lips, and anything else that isn’t your tooth enamel with a special shield. The Zoom! formula is then painted directly onto the surface of each of the teeth that show when you smile. We will activate the bleach under a special light in three, 15-minute intervals. At the end of the third light application, the treatment is complete. We wash away the bleach, take off the shields, and then hand you a mirror to give you the first peek at your fabulous results!
The benefits of Zoom! Whitening from your dentist in Virginia Beach include:
- Completed more quickly than other professional options
- Breaks through even the toughest stains
- Customized application protects your soft oral tissues from the bleaching gel
- Results can last for long after the treatment
