Many people love to drink coffee in the morning and maybe a glass of wine in the afternoon or evening. There is nothing wrong with it; however, the teeth may be at risk of discoloration. Thankfully, there is now a solution for coffeeholics and wine aficionados. Make way for the most sought-after procedure in dentistry nowadays – Teeth whitening!
Choosing the best whitening option can be tricky due to the availability of various products that can be readily purchased. With this in mind, we at All Smile Care want to share the best option for people who are interested in getting one. Although some products promise brighter teeth at a cheaper price, we believe that professional teeth whitening still takes the cake. So, we present to you Philips Zoom! In-office teeth whitening which is considered one of the most popular brands used worldwide.
What are the culprits for teeth discoloration and how does Zoom help?
Other than beverages with intense colors, foods and smoking could also cause extrinsic (outside) stains. Some factors can also cause intrinsic (inside) stains like excessive fluoride consumption during childhood, trauma affecting the permanent tooth, and the intake of antibiotic during pregnancy or while the child is young. The good news is, Zoom can break down the stains that have accumulated both on the enamel and dentin.
How to know if Zoom is a suitable solution for the needs of a patient?
Before you decide whether the treatment is best for your needs, a dental consultation should be performed first. The dentist would conduct a thorough examination to check the health of the teeth, gums, and other oral structures. Hygiene and lifestyle practices may also be discussed to check if undergoing a Zoom treatment would fit their needs. This step is essential to reach a favorable treatment plan as well as results for both dentist and patient. Any dental work will also be noted since prostheses do not respond to any whitening systems.
How do Zoom In-office teeth whitening work?
The lips and gums will be covered to avoid any irritations. As soon as the teeth are the only ones shown, the peroxide gel will be applied evenly. The Zoom! Advanced Power Chairside Lamp will then be used to expose the gel placed on the teeth. Its purpose is to activate its whitening effects to start breaking down the stains on the enamel and dentin. The teeth will remain exposed for 15 minutes, and this would be repeated three times for a total of 45 minutes. To help minimize sensitivity after the treatment a desensitizing paste of gel will be applied.
Afterward, the patient can enjoy up to eight shades whiter teeth! Patients can ask our dentist for any aftercare tips for longer-lasting effects.
