Your smile is the first thing other people notice about you and is a big part of making a good first impression. But maybe you’re self-conscious about smiling because your pearly whites aren’t so pearly or white anymore. Maybe you need a boost to your confidence?
If you find yourself identifying with any of the above, professional teeth whitening treatments may be the boost you need to smile like you mean it! If you are in the East Palmdale, CA area and are considering professional teeth whitening, Smile Dental Group can help.
How Do Teeth Get Discolored?
Even if you’ve dutifully cared for your teeth by brushing and flossing per your dentist’s recommendations, discoloration of your teeth will still happen naturally over time. This process can also be helped along by other factors such as smoking or chewing tobacco or drinking coffee, tea, cola or red wine on a regular basis. Certain prescription medications can cause discoloration as an unfortunate side effect.
Following your dentist’s recommendation of brushing twice daily and flossing at least once daily can slow this discoloration down and help your smile stay brighter and healthier longer but it cannot reverse this process.
East Palmdale dental providers Smile Dental Group offer patients the option of in-office or at-home teeth whitening with Zoom! Whitening products. Both versions can erase years of stains and give you a more youthful, confident smile. A fresh, white smile can help you feel ready to meet whatever challenge you’re facing.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
Our fastest method of teeth whitening is the in-office procedure with Zoom! Whitening products. This process can produce results up to ten shades lighter in just a little over an hour. Your results will be dependant on the severity and source of the stains on your teeth, with some stains being more difficult to erase completely. Your Smile Dental Group dentist will discuss expected results prior to your treatment during your consultation.
The in-office teeth whitening treatment begins with your Smile Dental Group dentist setting up a protective barrier for your gums. Next, we apply a layer of Zoom’s maximum strength bleaching gel onto your teeth and activate the bleaching power with a special no-heat lamp. You may need to repeat this process more than once until the desired shade is achieved.
At-Home Teeth Whitening Kit
For those that want to whiten their teeth at their own convenience, at-home teeth whitening kits using Zoom! Products are available. The at-home method involves using custom-fitted trays that your Smile Dental Group dentist creates in the office and maximum strength Zoom! bleaching gel. The take home kits’ professional strength bleaching is far superior to over the counter options such as whitening strips and toothpaste that may be sold at your local drugstore.
At-home kits are usually used overnight as they need to be left on for several hours at a time. The trays, custom-made to fit your mouth by your Smile Dental Group dentist, are filled with the bleaching gel which not only remove stains but also, because it contains fluoride, will reduce sensitivity and strengthen your enamel. Your teeth will look dramatically whiter after only a week of regular use.
All our Zoom! teeth whitening products are specially formulated to minimize tooth sensitivity while providing maximum whitening and your Smile Dental Group dentist will carefully supervise teeth whitening treatments.
