Professional dental whitening treatment is a fast and effective way to take years off of the appearance of your smile. Dental patients love whitening treatment because it is cost-effective and completely non-invasive. Our Tinley Park cosmetic dentists utilize the Zoom! whitening system, and today we are giving you more information about how Zoom! works and why it is so popular.
Zoom! has two different types of whitening systems: one is an in-office whitening treatment and the other is a take-home kit.
When you undergo in-office whitening, you’ll relax in the dentist’s chair while our team applies a proprietary Zoom! whitening gel to your dental enamel. As the gel activates, it goes to work lessening and lightening existing dental discoloration. Zoom! in-office whitening is designed to be safe and comfortable for people with sensitive teeth, and our dentist can modify your treatment plan, if necessary, to minimize sensitivity. With Zoom! professionally-applied whitening patients are able to lighten their teeth by up to 8 shades.
You may alternatively choose to use an at-home Zoom! whitening kit. These effective take-home kits utilize a less potent whitening gel than dentist-administered formulations. You’ll apply whitening gel to your teeth before you go to sleep, so the treatment won’t interfere with your daily routine. When you come in to meet with our dental team prior to starting whitening treatment, we’ll discuss how long you should continue treatment in order to achieve your dental goals. Although this type of Zoom! treatment is also self-administered at home, they are more powerful than over the counter whitening kits.
Minimizing dental staining can make your smile look younger, fresher, cleaner, and healthier. If your smile is looking dark and discolored, talk to your dental team about whether whitening may be appropriate for you. As always, our Orland Park cosmetic dentists are here to give you any additional information you may need!
