Do you sometimes feel like you’re the only person on the planet who doesn’t have beautiful white teeth? It can seem like everyone from the newscaster on TV to the cashier at the grocery store has a bright, white smile, which can make you feel even worse if you don’t like the color of your own teeth. The good news is that there’s a solution that can give you fantastic results in a short amount of time: Zoom! teeth whitening in Orlando. Keep reading to learn how it works and whether you’re a good candidate – and get one step closer to a smile you can feel proud of!
How Does Zoom! Teeth Whitening Work?
With Zoom! whitening, you have two main options: a custom-made take-home treatment or in-office appointment. Both can whiten your teeth from 6- 10 shades, but the main difference is how long it will take.
If you opt to whiten at home, you’ll get custom-made trays that you’ll fill with a professional-strength gel and wear for 30-60 minutes each day for about two weeks.
With an in-office procedure, you can still get custom-made trays to maintain your results at home, but you’ll also get results right away. Your treatment will take about an hour. Here’s what you can expect:
- First, your lips, gums, and cheeks will be carefully protected before the whitening solution is applied to your teeth.
- Then a special light will be applied to accelerate the effects of the solution. Your teeth will be whitened in 15-minute increments so the result can be monitored, and to make sure we minimize any sensitivity.
- When the final result is achieved, you’ll be given instructions for how to maintain your bright new smile at home.
Regardless of which option you choose, most people will need to touch up about once a year, depending on their lifestyle and habits. By minimizing foods and beverages that stain your teeth and using a whitening toothpaste, you can extend your results as long as possible.
Are You a Good Candidate?
The majority of people will get fantastic results from a Zoom! whitening treatment, especially if your teeth are stained from any of the following:
- Coffee and Tea
- Red Wine
- Turmeric or Tomatoes
- Soda or Fruit Juice
However, there are some patients that will get better results from other cosmetic treatments. For example, if you have severe staining from fluorosis, tetracycline use in childhood or enamel hypoplasia (a developmental defect), porcelain veneers are a fantastic way to completely mask these stains and give your teeth a whole new appearance. Note that there are no whitening products that will change the color of existing dental work like crowns.
The best way to know which procedure will work best for you is to schedule a consultation with a cosmetic dentist. That way, they can evaluate your needs and create a treatment plan to make sure you get the beautiful white smile you’ve always wanted!
