Make your smile an asset.
When you feel good about your smile, it shows. You’re more confident and ready to face the world. People will be drawn to you, and you’ll get noticed as a result. Whether your teeth are stained due to genetics, from habits like smoking or drinking caffeinated beverages, or from medications you take regularly, Zoom products can give you a brighter smile by targeting both the surface stains on your teeth and the dentin that lies beneath.
Types of whitening options.
There are many different types of Zoom whitening products, from toothpastes to rinses, to strips and professional whitening treatments. Many are available only at your dentist’s office. Dental Associates offers both Philips Zoom in-office and take-home whitening products. Our dentists will advise you regarding which will be the best solution for your particular needs.
How the products work.
Some products remove stains by working on the surface of the teeth using abrasion. Most whitening toothpastes use silica molecules to polish the tooth’s enamel. Whitening products with peroxide actually create a chemical reaction to break down the stains that produce a yellowing effect.
Can whitening be harmful to the teeth?
As long as you or your dentist uses the product as directed, you should not have a problem. When misused, however, some products can cause gum sensitivities, particularly if they are used too frequently. Your Dental Associates dentist will examine your teeth and gums to assess their condition before recommending a whitening product. Let him or her know if you have had any past issues with sensitivities. With the right care and formulation, you should get noticeably whiter teeth without irritation or other problems.
How long do whitening treatments last?
Most whitening treatments will last a reasonably long time as long as your teeth are properly maintained. It really depends on your personal habits and lifestyle. It’s best to refrain from coffee, tea, wine and cigarettes to keep your smile bright. There are also a number of Philips products your dentist may recommend designed to prolong your whiter smile.
Discover which whitening solution is best for your needs.
Like most whitening products, Zoom products are designed for use by a professional. Your Dental Associates dentist will recommend the right Zoom product for your needs after a thorough examination of your teeth and gums. He or she will also discuss your goals and your budget for whitening. Costs start at just under $100 for a basic Zoom treatment, but vary based on the level of whitening results you hope to achieve.
What to expect from Zoom whitening products.
Results will vary based on your natural tooth color and your teeth’s current condition and shade. In most cases, a difference of even two to three shades will result in a noticeably brighter smile. Zoom offers a wide range of whitening solutions. You can count on your Dental Associates dentist to recommend the best option for you.
