How ZOOM Can Make Your Smile Whiter

Smiles are the first thing most people notice about us. Having a smile full of nice white teeth can help create a wonderful first impression, because of how it looks and also because most people exude confidence when they feel good about themselves. ZOOM is a bleaching process that lightens discoloration of tooth enamel. It is one of the best professional whitening systems available.

As you age, teeth naturally begin to darken. Lifestyle habits, including the foods you eat, drinking coffee, tea, cola, red wine, and smoking, can also cause teeth to stain and become darker or yellow. Some other causes of tooth discoloration include certain antibiotics, fruit, and fruit juices. ZOOM is a simple procedure that can give you a longer lasting and whiter smile.

When you go in for a ZOOM treatment, your dentist will start by covering your gums and lips, leaving only the teeth exposed. They will then apply the ZOOM whitening gel and use the ZOOM light. This process causes the gel to penetrate your teeth and removes stains and discoloration.

The ZOOM process usually lasts about 60 minutes. The whitening gel is applied four times at fifteen minutes each. The entire process takes about one hour. Throughout the process, most patients are quite comfortable with no distress. After a ZOOM treatment, your teeth will be noticeably whiter and brighter. Results can be long lasting, if you follow proper maintenance twice a day, including brushing, flossing, and mouth wash. ZOOM is available only through your dentist. It is a safe and effective way to whiten your smile.
