COSMETIC DENTISTRY has come a long way in regards to achieving a whiter smile. You could get whiter teeth in Ancient Rome or Renaissance-era Europe, but the methods were pretty crude and counterproductive. Thankfully, here in the 21st century, we can benefit from safe, simple, and effective whitening methods like Philips Zoom™ whitening systems.
The Benefits Of Zoom Whitening
If you’re not new to the tooth whitening game, then you might be familiar with whitening systems that use painful bleach and UV light. The Zoom WhiteSpeed™ system is far safer and gentler, using blue LED light to whiten your teeth quickly yet comfortably. The innovative and exclusive light has variable intensity settings to ensure maximum comfort during the procedure. With this system, your teeth could be up to 8 shades whiter in as little at 45 minutes, reversing stains from food and drinks, aging, and even some types of medication.
What To Expect From A Zoom WhiteSpeed™ Whitening Appointment
First, your dental professional will verify that you are a candidate for whitening. Prior to the whitening procedure, impressions will be taken for custom fabricated trays that you may use at home. Your in-office procedure will begin with assessing your current tooth shade for comparison after the whitening procedure. Your dental professional will then prepare your mouth for whitening by retracting your lips and cheeks and placing a barrier on your soft tissues. Once your mouth is prepped and ready, a layer of WhiteSpeed™ in-office whitening gel is applied and the WhiteSpeed™ lamp is positioned to shine on your teeth for 15 minutes. This process is repeated for three 15 minute sessions, with an optional fourth session if deemed necessary by your dental professional. Following the procedure, you will be given your custom trays, a take-home whitening gel syringe and a Relief ACP Oral Care gel syringe that helps to relieve tooth sensitivity.
