If you’re dealing with stained teeth or your smile isn’t quite as bright as you’d like it to be, chances are you’ve probably tried many different “teeth whitening” products by now. All you have to do is visit your local grocery store, and you’ll see dozens of so-called “teeth whitening systems” on the shelves promising “dazzling” results in “no time.”
Unfortunately, most folks spend hundreds to thousands of dollars on these systems only to get subpar results at best. If you are one of the millions searching for terms like “teeth bleaching dentist near me” in Littleton, Colorado, we’ve got fantastic news!
Zoom is a teeth-bleaching system that’s wildly popular worldwide. The process lightens the discoloration of your natural tooth enamel and dentin. Many things can cause discoloration, such as cola, tea, coffee, red wine, and especially smoking. Over time, these agents can cause your teeth to darken and stain.
The high-tech Zoom Advanced Power Chairside Lamp is used with our in-office Zoom tooth whitening procedure to accelerate the tooth bleaching process drastically. The lamp can activate the 25 percent hydrogen peroxide gel used in the mouthpiece, and as the hydrogen breaks down, oxygen floods your enamel and dentin to bleach and break down those stubborn stains.
When you first visit our office, Dr. Brown will closely examine your gums, teeth, and mouth so she can ensure your oral health is where it should be before starting treatment. If you have any issues, such as gum disease or tooth decay, we will need to address them before you can begin your Zoom treatment.
After cleaning your teeth to remove built-up tartar, plaque, and harmful bacteria that cause cavities, we apply a cream to protect your lips and gums from irritation often caused by the whitening gel. The gel is professional-grade, meaning you cannot buy it outside a dental office. Those gels you find in stores are only watered-down imitations of the real deal.
After coating your teeth with the gel, we activate it using a UV light. The gel’s peroxide begins to break down the deeply embedded stain molecules to brighten your teeth by several shades.
The number of times needed to repeat the process to complete treatment depends on the severity of your stains. It may be necessary to repeat up to four times during that visit. Each treatment only takes 15 minutes. Most patients can complete their Zoom treatments in one or two hours.
The Zoom Teeth Whitening System is a very exciting advance in tooth-whitening technology that’s brightened millions of smiles worldwide.
