ZOOM! Whitening Makes A Huge Difference, FAST

TOOTH WHITENING HAS BECOME VERY POPULAR over the past few years. There are different whitening processes available on the market that can help get your teeth from 6 to 9 shades whiter. The term “whitening” is loosely used to describe any process that makes the teeth appear whiter.

If you are considering getting your teeth whitened it is recommended that you consult with Dr. Faustino, or a member of his team, first. For some patients, different tooth whitening processes may be more effective than others. It’s a good idea for us to visit about your goals first—then decide what’s best for you.

Bleaching is a common tooth-whitening procedure done in many dental offices. But keep in mind that not all tooth discolorations are correctable. For instance, if you have had bonding, veneers, or tooth-colored fillings on your front teeth there are potential problems when it comes to whitening. Dr. Faustino can advise you about which procedures will give you the best results.

One of today’s most popular ways to whiten teeth FAST is using the ZOOM! whitening process—an in-office teeth whitening system developed by Discus Dental. The procedure takes about an hour. It is safe, effective and VERY fast. ZOOM! whitening is only performed “in office” by dental professionals.

Another option is “tray whitening”. If the best choice for you is going to be tray whitening, when you arrive at Better Smiles Dental Care, we will make you a custom-fitted mouth trays that will help in applying the bleaching agent evenly. You wear the mouth tray for a designated amount of time and the bleaching agent surrounds your teeth to do its whitening magic. Some products are used twice a day for a period of one to two weeks.

Bleaching agents contain carbamide peroxides, which vary in concentrations. The most common strengths available are 10, 16, and 22 percent. They usually come in gel form and this consistency seems to work the best. The products that contain carbamide peroxide actually bleach the tooth enamel. When professionally applied, hydrogen peroxide concentrations range from 10 to 35 percent and are sometimes used in conjunction with a light or laser. This accelerates the whitening process.
