ZOOM ZOOM! Have A Reason To Smile!

Santa Ana Smiles on Bristol Dentistry Zoom | a Professional and Safe Solution to Tooth Discoloration

If you have ever had someone look away quickly when you opened your mouth to smile or talk, you know how embarrassing stained teeth can be, especially if you work in a professional environment. Most people who see your stained, unattractive teeth may have advised you to invest in a new toothbrush, whitening toothpaste, some special gel or even peroxide. You may already have tried these and found that you are still constantly fighting off new stains from tobacco, tea and coffee, certain foods or even plaque build-up. The aging process also plays a role in staining and darkening teeth, and whitening teeth is guaranteed to take years off your appearance.


Teeth Whitening Done under Safe, Monitored Conditions, at Santa Ana Smiles On Bristol Dentistry

The trouble is that with any home bleaching method you try, through sheer inexperience, you run the risk of tooth sensitivity, tooth damage or  gum irritation. Some of these products contain acids or abrasives which can cause permanent damage to your teeth. The whitening effect won’t last long either, whereas the effects of Zoom teeth whitening can last up to 10 years.

The best idea is to consult with your dentist at Santa Ana Smiles On Bristol Dentistry before starting with a tooth whitening procedure.  One of the benefits is that over-the-counter teeth whitening products can take months to whiten your teeth whereas a professional teeth whitening procedure such as Zoom can be done within an hour. You also get longer lasting and more dynamic results.

The beauty about professional teeth whitening is that it is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure which can be over-and-done- with in less than an hour of chair time. While you are on the chair, you will be completely comfortable, possibly watching TV while the procedure is happening.

People are Cruel if You have Less than Perfect Teeth

Self-worth isn’t something to take lightly. The reality is that people can be cruel with less than perfect looks. Because of this, teeth whitening has become one of the most sought after dental procedures today.

If the toothpastes and gels from the local store aren’t whitening your teeth, how can you achieve a dazzling, brighter smile?  Zoom is a brilliant bleaching process used to lighten discoloration of enamel and dentin layers. With teeth whitening, oxygen free radicals are given off. These break down the color molecules which stain the teeth. The whitening process turns them into smaller molecules which are unnoticeable, making teeth appear whiter.

A Thorough Examination of the Teeth and Gums

Before you decide to go ahead with Zoom teeth whitening, your dentist will do a thorough examination of your teeth and gums. This is to ensure that this particular teeth whitening process will work well with your teeth. It is also to spot signs of tooth decay, gum disease or some other oral health condition which will first have to be treated before Zoom whitening can get underway. This check-over is important, as bleaches can irritate your mouth if there are oral health conditions present.

The Zoom procedure will also begin with cleaning of the teeth. The preparation process will continue further when your gums and lips are covered in a way which will protect them from the effects of the bleaching agent.

Are You a Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

Almost anyone can benefit from Zoom teeth whitening at Santa Ana Smiles On Bristol Dentistry and an oral exam will quickly determine if you are a good candidate for it. Your dentist will also want to evaluate your mouth to also be aware of existing dental work that you have such as veneers and crowns. Crowns and veneers are made of porcelain and they won’t be affected by the color change.

Your dentist will also measure your initial shade, and will show you how the final shade will be so much lighter and brighter than what you had before. In fact the teeth may whiten by two to three shades or as many as eight. Age, the level of staining before the whitening process and health can all influence how teeth whiten.

How ZOOM Teeth Whitening Works

The idea behind teeth whitening is to exfoliate those off-putting stains from inside your teeth and to restore them to a bright, white, natural color. Zoom teeth whitening makes use of  25% hydrogen peroxide gel. This gel is then activated by way of a special UV light – the Zoom Advanced Power Chairside Lamp. The procedure consists of 15 minute sessions, of which there will be three.  The old gel is removed from your teeth and a new layer of whitening gel is applied.  In between gel applications, the teeth are checked to see how they have whitened and to determine whether more bleach needs to be applied.

Once the 45 minute gel application process is over, a sensitivity-reducing paste is applied to the teeth. This is to take care of any adverse reactions your teeth are inclined to suffer because of the bleach. With teeth whitening, some people may experience some temporary increased tooth sensitivity, especially when consuming cold foods, but these symptoms disappear within 1 or 2 days after completion of the teeth whitening treatment.

Maintain your Pearly Whites

Results from Zoom teeth whitening will be able to be seen almost immediately.  Once the treatment is complete, your dentist will explain how simple care with your bright new-look teeth will keep them looking their best. After treatment, your dentist will recommend home maintenance follow-up by using a  lower-percentage bleach which you can keep on your teeth for longer periods of time. There are professional formula products which have been designed specifically to keep your post-Zoom teeth looking their brightest.

The culture we live in puts a premium on good looks, and because people discriminate based on looks, your stained teeth may cause you to not get that coveted job. The advantages of Zoom are many, and in the space of an hour you can change your looks. With great ease and comfort at having it done the Zoom way,  getting the perfect smile has never been easier .
