One of the most remarkable developments in dentistry in recent years has been the proliferation of options for teeth whitening. In addition to the services offered by dentists, over-the-counter toothpastes, mouthwashes, strips, teeth whitening pens and other products have become more and more common. For those looking for teeth whitening, Altamonte Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry offers state-of-the-art services.
Not surprisingly, white teeth have also become more noticeable – more and more strikingly white teeth in more and more ads, television programs and other media. Teeth that seem to be ever whiter and whiter as the years pass.
Perhaps there’s an element of brilliantly white teeth as a fad, but there’s no denying that sparkling white teeth do convey an image of youth and health. They can contribute to an overall sense of well-being, inspire self-confidence and even change how others see you.
Altamonte is proud to offer patients the Zoom! teeth whitening system, a breakthrough technique that is being used around the world, in more than 15,000 dental offices. Millions have benefited from it.
Remarkably, the Zoom! process can bring your teeth to a dazzling state of whiteness in a single treatment session lasting about one hour. If you’ve ever spent months waiting for your toothpaste, or the expensive strips you purchased at the drugstore, to give you a movie star smile, you can appreciate why Zoom! treatments have become so popular wherever they are offered.
It’s important to mention up front that the Zoom! teeth whitening process is a non-invasive one that will not harm your teeth. Most dentists recommend a regular cleaning before Zoom! teeth whitening to help ensure the best-possible results with your teeth whitening.
At the beginning of the Zoom! treatment, the dentist will apply a whitening agent that contains hydrogen peroxide to your teeth. The gel remains in place for 15 minutes, during which time a special light is focused on your teeth. The light activates the gel and begins the process of stain removal. This procedure is repeated two more times, for a total of three 15-minute treatment periods.
Amazingly, patients have reported that their teeth appear to be as much as 10 shades lighter after a Zoom! whitening session. Go from dull to brilliant in an hour with Zoom! teeth whitening.
Some tooth staining is the result of age or injury, but discoloration can also be the result of lack of good dental hygiene or a reflection of your eating and drinking habits. Coffee, teas, red wine, berries, and many other foods and beverages can stain your teeth over time..
You’ll get the most out of your teeth whitening by following a few common-sense rules:
Brush and floss twice a day.
Get a cleaning every six months.
Brush your teeth immediately after consuming coffee, tea, wine, berries or other foods or beverages that can stain teeth.
Don’t smoke or chew tobacco.
Your dentist may also be able to provide you with a Zoom! home touchup kit.
While it’s natural to associate white teeth with overall dental health, the color of your teeth is only part of the picture. Even more important than the appearance of healthy teeth is the actual fact of having truly healthy teeth.
Whitening services can be provided by individuals who are not themselves dentists. Those who choose such providers may save a minor amount in cost, but they may also be missing important opportunities to learn about their mouths and to understand what they may need to do to take care of their long-term health. While the Zoom! Process is highly effective, it also takes skill to get a superior result.
