Everybody wants white teeth. When your teeth aren’t white you feel self-conscious smiling. Smiling is important. Not only does smiling make the people around you feel good, it actually releases chemicals in your own brain that make you feel good! Everybody’s teeth could use whitening from time to time if their teeth are stained or yellowed due to extrinsic factors such as what they eat, drink, and if they use tobacco products. If you hesitate to smile because you feel your teeth aren’t as white as they should be. Zoom! away those stains so you can keep on smiling.
Zoom! In-Office Whitening: Zoom! is a safe and long-lasting procedure. Patient’s, on average, can achieve teeth that are eight shades whiter than before. The Zoom! whitening treatment is applied as a gel and contains 25 percent hydrogen peroxide. It works to eliminate yellowing and stains in about an hour. The procedure consists of applying gel to the teeth in 15 minute intervals and activating the gel with a specialized light. The teeth are then rinsed, and the gel and light are applied again. This takes place up to three times and is followed by a final rinse.
