Teeth whitening is one of the easiest and best ways to rejuvenate a smile when the teeth are otherwise healthy. Over time, our food and drink can take a toll on our teeth, dulling our white teeth and even staining them.
Teeth whitening in Staten Island is closer than you think. It’s also easier thank you think.
Professional teeth whitening uses a special hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide gel that breaks down stains in the tooth enamel with a powerful, yet safe bleaching effect. This treatment is commonly known as Zoom, and you’ve probably heard of it.
The Zoom teeth whitening system is considered by the majority of dental professionals as the safest and best teeth whitening systems available because it uses a safe bleaching medium that whitens the enamel without damaging it.
In the office, the hygienist will coat the teeth in the Zoom whitening gel. Then, a special light is used to activate the bleaching ingredients found in the gel. The gel will be left on the teeth for about 15 minutes and then removed. Then, the process will be repeated two more times to brighten the teeth by several shades.
Good candidates for Zoom teeth whitening treatment are people who have mild to moderate staining of the surface layer of the teeth and whose teeth are in otherwise healthy condition. Basically, if your teeth are intact and healthy but stained, you’re a candidate for Zoom.
Getting teeth whitening in Staten Island in a couple of phases can be appealing at first, especially when dental offices are so close by in the area. However, in-office whitening provides the best outcome overall and over time.
We focus on in-office teeth whitening because the process can produce the most effective results when no food or drink is consumed for days or weeks in between treatments, which can hamper the whitening effects.
Whitening your teeth with Zoom now while the stains are superficial saves you from other more aggressive forms of whitening that might be required later. This whitening can last for a year or even two, so it’s well worth the trip to the office.
With this teeth whitening system, you can stay on top of stains as they come, keeping your smile bright and beautiful over the years with a completely safe procedure.
Remember, after your teeth whitening, don’t eat or drink anything you wouldn’t if you were sitting on your mother’s white couch. Remember how important that was to your mom? Apply that to your teeth, at least for the first week. Avoid foods and drinks that can easily stain teeth such as berries, coffee, and tea.
After the initial post-treatment week, you can go back to eating and drinking as normal. To maximize the life of your Zoom treatment, we recommend avoiding food and drink that can easily stain your teeth period. Of course the great thing about Zoom is that you don’t necessarily have to do that.
