If you are looking to have your teeth whitened with fantastic results, we have Zoom Professional In-Office Whitening available.

Before Starting Whitening Treatment

Before you consider having your teeth whitened, it is best to ensure that your teeth are clean and free from dental cavities or dental decay. Professional teeth whitening uses a whitening gel that is placed over the teeth and activated with a special light. If there is dental plaque or hardened dental plaque on the teeth and around the teeth, it will reduce the effectiveness of the whitening agent. It is recommended that all patients have a professional dental cleaning to ensure that the teeth are clean and free of bacteria and build-up for best results.
Some patients may experience tooth sensitivity in their daily life when consuming cold items. If you frequently experience tooth sensitivity, there is a chance that you may experience sensitivity during or after your whitening treatment as well. It is best to use a toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth a few weeks before starting your whitening treatment and after your whitening treatment.

Professional In-Office Whitening Treatment Process

Once you are ready to begin your whitening treatment, your dental professional will discuss which type of results you can expect to achieve and how many dental whitening applications it will take to get you to your desired shade. Many patients experience fantastic whitening results in just one visit. However, patients with a significant amount of staining may require more than one whitening appointment to achieve their desired shade.

Your dental professional will apply the whitening agent to your teeth. Once the whitening agent is properly applied to your teeth, a special activating light will be shone on the teeth to activate the whitening agent for approximately fifteen minutes. These steps are repeated two or three more times during the appointment until the desired shade of whitening is achieved.

After Your Whitening Treatment

At the end of your whitening appointment, your dental professional will provide you with post-care instructions to ensure that you get the best results from your whitening treatment. Be sure to avoid foods such as coffee or wine immediately after your whitening treatment. Avoid using abrasive whitening toothpaste as well, as it may cause tooth sensitivity immediately after your whitening appointment.
