The Pros and Cons of Teeth Whitening
A healthy, vibrant smile is engaging, attractive, and appealing. When your teeth are stained, not white and gleaming, it affects your confidence and how you see yourself. Zoom whitening from the Atlanta Center for Cosmetic Dentistry whitens your teeth, so you are confident and ready to share a camera-ready smile.
What is Zoom teeth whitening?
Even the healthiest teeth can develop a less-than-sparkling color. Food, coffee, tea, red wine, and smoking all contribute to yellowing teeth. Zoom teeth whitening is a quick, relatively inexpensive process that can restore the color of your teeth to produce a gleaming white. Before whitening, our dentist will give you a thorough examination and let you know if you’re a suitable candidate for teeth whitening, and which method will work best for you.
How does Zoom teeth whitening work?
The Zoom teeth whitening procedure begins with routine teeth cleaning, allowing the whitening products to penetrate the surface of the teeth. A hydrogen peroxide gel is applied to the surface of the teeth, which will then be activated by the Zoom light. The light will remain in place for 15 minutes. Many patients find this an ideal time to just rest and relax in our spa-like dental office while their teeth are restored to a brilliant white. We recommend a series of three 15-minute treatments to achieve optimal results.
What are the benefits of teeth whitening?
Since your smile is often one of the first traits others notice about you, it can often have an impact on your self-confidence. Through Zoom teeth whitening, you can enjoy:
- Brighter smile
- Quick, easy procedure
- Low risk of tooth damage
- Recommendations for at-home teeth whitening products to help you maintain your newly whitened smile
Are there any risks with teeth whitening?
While there are some risks associated with teeth whitening, they are rare and relatively mild. You may experience temporary tooth sensitivity following your teeth whitening procedure which will subside over time. It’s important to note that while the Zoom procedure will whiten your natural teeth, it will not work on existing crowns, fillings, or veneers.
Who is a candidate for teeth whitening?
Men and women in Atlanta who are in good overall health and would like to see a brighter, more radiant smile can benefit from Zoom teeth whitening. Those with periodontal disease or who have very sensitive teeth, however, may not be good candidates.
