You attend every routine dental cleaning and examination. Your oral hygiene is impeccable. So why are your teeth discolored? Over the years, staining agents can leave our teeth looking less than brilliant. Food and beverages common to the standard American diet can dull the appearance of your smile. This includes items like berries, fruit juices, coffee, and tea. At Perfect Smiles, LLC, in Totowa, NJ, we offer Zoom! ® teeth whitening, which can brighten your smile up to eight shades lighter in a single appointment. In-office teeth whitening is an excellent way to rejuvenate your smile and give yourself a boost in confidence. Here, we will discuss the many benefits of this cosmetic option.
Zoom! Is Safe and Effective
Professional teeth whitening is one of the most conservative treatments in cosmetic dentistry. Over-the-counter products can be quite abrasive and may actually harm the enamel of your teeth. Because Zoom! is performed under the supervision of a doctor or licensed clinician, it is incredibly safe. Before the application of the whitening gel, your lips, gums, and soft tissues will be covered with a barrier for protection. While you may experience slight sensitivity following your treatment, this is temporary and should diminish within a day or two.
Zoom! is Fast and Simple
Perhaps the most attractive advantage of Zoom! is that it can be performed in a single office visit. Typically, the gel is applied in three 15-minute sessions. You will be able to read a book, watch television, or listen to music while we brighten your smile. This is a significant advantage over at-home whitening kits, which often require multiple treatments over two to three weeks to achieve similar results.
Zoom! Offers Dramatic Results
The results of Zoom! professional teeth whitening are astounding and your teeth can actually be lightened up to eight shades. This is because the concentration of hydrogen peroxide is much higher when compared to the strength of over-the-counter options. The best part is, the results are instantaneous; you will be able to walk out of our office with your brand-new smile after one appointment. We can even provide you with bleaching trays for touch-up treatments at home, when necessary.
Maintaining Your New Smile
Zoom! is one of the most effective ways to achieve that dazzling smile you have always wanted. Now that you have invested time and money into your smile, you want to keep it as brilliant as possible. Following a few simple guidelines will help keep your teeth beautiful for years to come:
- Consume dark foods and beverages in moderation
- Sip your coffee through a straw to keep the liquid away from your enamel
- Swish with water after you eat or drink dark foods, such as coffee, tea, cola, red wine, berries, or fruit juice
- Brush at least twice a day, and floss at least once per day
- Attend all dental appointments, including regular exams and cleanings
