Whitening your smile with Zoom whitening is fast, convenient, and effective. Today our Orland Park cosmetic dentists are giving you the facts about Zoom whitening treatment. We hope that after reading through this short overview, you’ll have a better idea of whether or not Zoom is right for your smile!
Zoom whitening treatment involves putting a specially formulated whitening gel on your teeth. This treatment happens in-office, so that our dental team is able to regulate the amount of whitening gel applied, and the length of time the gel sits on your smile.
Before we apply the whitening gel to your smile, we will safeguard your gum tissue and lips with a protective covering. Then, we’ll place the Zoom whitening gel onto your dental enamel. In order to increase the efficacy of the whitening gel, our dental team will shine the Zoom light onto your smile. This light allows the whitening gel to further penetrate the dental layers and minimize stains.
After a few 15 minute whitening sessions, our dentist will apply a topical fluoride treatment to help fortify your teeth. The entire Zoom whitening treatment process generally takes about an hour to complete. You may achieve full results after one treatment, or you may benefit from multiple treatments over a period of a few appointments.
Many people are able to lighten their smiles by up to six shades using Zoom whitening. Our dental team can give you a better idea of what type of treatments you might be able to expect when we talk to you at your consultation.
So give our Orland Park cosmetic dentists a call if you want to learn more about the different ways that you can lighten and brighten your smile. We are excited to speak with you about your dental needs and dreams!
