Achieve a New Glow with Zoom Teeth Whitening

brilliant white smileTooth enamel is not naturally white, and in many people, it is translucent enough that the yellow dentin beneath it is visible. On top of that, daily habits like wine and coffee consumption can discolor your smile. Fortunately, you are not doomed to live with a lackluster grin. Thanks to Zoom teeth whitening in Frisco, you could become the proud owner of brilliantly bright set of teeth after just one dental appointment!

Zoom Benefits

The most outstanding benefits of Zoom include:

  • It can whiten teeth by up to eight shades in less than an hour!
  • It is much more effective than over the counter whitening methods, which usually only address surface stains.
  • Since the treatment takes place under the supervision of a licensed dentist, it is very safe.
  • Most people with healthy teeth and gums are viable candidates for Zoom.
  • Professional whitening is one of the most affordable cosmetic dentistry treatments.

The Zoom Process

If you’d like to undergo professional teeth whitening, schedule a consultation with  a qualified cosmetic dentist, such as Dr. Paresh B. Patel. He’ll make sure that your teeth are healthy enough for the bleaching procedure, and he’ll look for any restorations (such as bonding or fillings) that would not respond to the treatment. If you’re a good candidate for whitening, he’ll likely recommend that you get your teeth cleaned before your actual Zoom procedure.

After your teeth cleaning, Dr. Patel or your hygienist will cover your lips and gums so the Zoom gel won’t irritate them. Then, the gel will be applied to your teeth. A special light activates it so it is able to penetrate the enamel and eliminate even deep-set stains. Typically, patients have the gel applied for three 15-minute sessions. Following your Zoom treatment, a sensitivity-reducing gel will be applied to your teeth.

After Your Procedure

Zoom eliminates stains, but it will not make your teeth impervious to future discoloration. It’s especially critical to protect your smile during the first 48 hours after your treatment, when your teeth will be more permeable (and thus more vulnerable to stains) than usual. During this window, you should avoid any foods or beverages that might create new stains. It’s best to stick to eating non-colored or white foods. Milk, pasta with white sauce, and rice are all safe choices.

Your teeth may also be extra sensitive for these few days. Thus, it’s wise to avoid extremely hot or cold foods as well as anything with a high acid content.

After the initial sensitivity wears off, you can go back to your normal eating and drinking routine. However, you should take steps to prevent new stains. For example, you should enjoy dark beverages in moderation, use a whitening toothpaste, and avoid the use of any tobacco products.

Are you tired of your dull, stained smile? Ask Dr. Patel if Zoom professional teeth whitening is right for you!
