What Is Zoom Teeth Whitening?
Zoom teeth whitening is an amazing professional teeth whitening option provided only by Hellertown, PA dentist such as Dr. Hunsicker-Morrissey and Dr. Garubba. We have two options available for you to brighten and whiten your smile.
- In-Office Teeth Whitening – This option is performed in our office. It normally takes about an hour to complete and is therefore ideal for the busy adult who wants whiter teeth as quickly as they can get them. The process starts with your Hellertown, PA dentist making molds of your teeth to create your custom whitening trays. After your trays are ready, we will apply a protective gel to your gums. This gel will protect the soft tissue from being irritated by the whitening gel. Next, the whitening gel is applied to your teeth, and a laser is used to activate the whitening effects of the gel. You will leave with your touch-up trays to use at home, instructions on how to keep your smile bright, and, of course, your new, whiter smile.
- At-Home Teeth Whitening – This is a teeth whitening treatment that you can do in the comfort of your own home. We will take a mold of your teeth and produce a set of custom whitening trays for you to use at home. This is a less expensive option than the in-office choice, but it is still very effective in giving you a whiter smile. Once your trays are complete, we will show you how to apply the bleaching agent to the trays and how to apply the trays to your teeth. This is important, as you want to avoid getting the bleaching agent on your gums and irritating them. You will need to wear your trays for between 30-60 minutes each day, twice a day. The length of your treatment will be determined by both your dentist and your desired amount of whitening.
Benefit of Zoom Teeth Whitening Vs. Store-Bought Whiteners
The main benefit of using a professional teeth whitening treatment such as Zoom over a store-bought whitener is the level of teeth whitening you will achieve. There are many good whiteners on the market today, but because of FDA regulations, the concentrations in the whitening gels you buy at the store are much less than the concentrations that you will receive from your Hellertown, PA dentist. Simple math: the higher the concentration, the more whitening effect the gel has. It’s like washing your clothes with a detergent that has more water than another one – your clothes just won’t get as clean. Likewise, your teeth will not be as white with an OTC whitener.
