Zoom! Teeth Whitening – Northwest OKC
No Need To Wait For a Beautiful Smile
One of the cornerstones of an attractive smile is white teeth. Unfortunately, it’s nearly impossible to avoid staining and discoloration over time, even for people who were born with a naturally white smile. At Bluff Creek Dental, one of our most popular procedures is Zoom! teeth whitening because it provides fantastic results incredibly quickly. If you’re interested in making a big change to your appearance in just a short amount of time, contact us today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Crowley.
How Do Teeth Become Stained or Discolored?
Everyone’s teeth become discolored with age because the enamel naturally gets thinner and exposes the darker layer of tooth structure underneath. But there are many other reasons for teeth stains, including:
- Poor brushing and flossing habits
- Tobacco use
- Red wine, coffee, and tea
- Blunt force trauma that damages the blood supply of a tooth, causing it to turn dark grey in color
- Developmental defects in the enamel
- Taking tetracycline (an antibiotic) in childhood or certain antihistamines and antidepressants
While you don’t have control over all of these factors, you can take steps to minimize stains and discoloration by getting regular professional cleanings, doing well with oral hygiene at home, and not smoking. Also, if you consume coffee, tea, or red wine, swish with water several times afterward and use a whitening toothpaste to remove surface stains.
How Does Zoom! Teeth Whitening Work?
Zoom! teeth whitening is an in-office treatment that works in just one appointment. In addition to being strong enough to whiten your teeth in just one visit, it’s also gentle on your enamel, so you’ll get safer, more reliable results than you could with anything from the store.
Your Zoom! treatment will take around 90 minutes – here’s what you can expect:
- We’ll begin by protecting your lips, gums, and cheeks before we place the whitening gel on your teeth. This gel is powerful enough on its own to remove stains in the inner and outer layers of the teeth, but it’s 40% more effective with the addition of a special light that accelerates the process.
- Your teeth will be whitened in 15 minutes increments, and we’ll continually monitor your results and make sure your teeth don’t feel sensitive.
- When your treatment is done, we’ll review the instructions for maintaining your bright new smile at home.
What Are the Benefits of Zoom! Teeth Whitening?
Zoom! whitening is a fantastic investment that makes your smile look great and also enhances your self-confidence. And while one of the biggest advantages is that you’ll get results immediately, it’s also designed to minimize sensitivity and protect your teeth at the same time.
