Zoom!™ Teeth Whitening at Cosmetic & Advanced Dentistry
Everyone’s teeth will begin to darken naturally over time. External factors like drinking coffee and wine or tobacco use can also contribute to teeth staining. Teeth can also darken due to internal factors such as damage or certain medications. In-office teeth whitening is an easy and economical way to whiten stained teeth.
Professional teeth whitening is a highly effective, cost-efficient, and safe cosmetic dentistry treatment. It can make a positive impact on a patient’s smile. If you want sparkling white teeth instantly, the Zoom!™ Teeth Whitening system could be just right for you.
Our dentists at Cosmetic and Advanced Dentistry provide the Zoom!™ Teeth Whitening system in Owings Mills, MD. This preferred whitening method whitens your teeth by many shades in a single visit. In one hour’s time, the treatment is complete. You will leave our dental office with a whiter, brighter smile.
The advantages of Zoom!™ Teeth Whitening include:
- No messy custom fit trays to wear
- Can be complete during your lunch hour
- Dramatic results that last
The Zoom!™ Teeth Whitening Procedure
Before we begin the teeth whitening procedure, first our dentist will conduct a thorough exam. Dr. Lazer will examine your teeth for any issues that may hinder the whitening treatment from being as effective as possible. He will discuss your oral health and lifestyle habits to be sure the Zoom!™ Teeth Whitening system is best for you and will meet your needs and goals. After a dental exam, Dr. Lazer will perform a thorough teeth cleaning. For patients whose teeth may not respond to a professional teeth whitening procedure, Dr. Lazer offers porcelain veneers that can provide a lasting white smile.
Next, Dr. Lazer will prepare your mouth by covering your gums and tongue with a protective rubber or plastic film. This film will protect your gums and other mouth tissue from the UV light, and help prevent gum staining and sensitivity. Then, he will apply a special hydrogen peroxide whitening gel to your teeth. The UV light will activate the gel and begin to remove surface stains from your teeth. The whole whitening process takes only an hour at our Owings Mills, MD cosmetic dentistry office.
You may experience temporary tooth sensitivity after the procedure. We will do our best to minimize sensitivity. After the teeth whitening treatment, we will apply a fluoride gel to minimize tooth sensitivity. We may also provide home whitening kits so you can extend the results. Although you will see instant results, your teeth will continue to get brighter for a couple of hours after treatment.
Teeth Whitening Post-care
The effects of Zoom are immediate. With proper care and maintenance, your new smile will be lighter than it was before. We don’t need to use messy trays and treatment is complete in about an hour. Your results will last longer if you maintain proper oral hygiene, such as flossing and brushing your teeth at least twice every day. This will also help you maintain your oral hygiene and keep your mouth healthy.
You should also make sure that you drink enough water, so that you don’t get dehydrated. Dehydration can cause dry mouth which will lead to bad breath and yellowing of the teeth.
Regular dental checkups are also important to avoid plaque buildup. You should avoid common lifestyle habits that stain and darken the teeth. Avoid habits such as tobacco use, smoking, and consuming dark foods and beverages. The use of the touch-up whitening gel will help maintain the results indefinitely.
