Advance Your Smile With ZOOM Professional Teeth Whitening

Marietta GA Cosmetic DentistryAs a worldwide bleaching system used to brighten discolored teeth, ZOOM Professional Teeth Whitening has the power to lighten teeth up to 8 shades in a single hour! What’s more is that this in-office whitening technology is sensitive-free and will not harm teeth or gum tissues. Thus, it’s easy to see why more and more patients seek to advance their smiles with ZOOM.

To better understand why teeth become discolored in the first place, it’s helpful to consider the causes in terms of extrinsic and intrinsic stains. As noted by LIVESCIENCE, extrinsic stains develop on the outer layer, or enamel of teeth. While most understand that smoking, as well as coffee and tea can cause staining, there are a number of other acidic foods and beverages that cause teeth to appear dull. These include red wine, sodas, dark condiments, and even fruits such as grapes, blackberries and blueberries.

Intrinsic stains, on the other hand, develop within the tooth, and occur when the underlying dentin is altered or changed. These stains might be a result of antibiotics, blood pressure medication, Albuterol, certain antiseptic mouthwashes, over the counter antihistamines and Chemotherapy.

Aside from extrinsic and intrinsic causes, tooth discoloration is further affected by genetics and aging.

How Do I Know If ZOOM Is Right For Me?

The only way to know if ZOOM is right for you is to visit your dentist. Without question, a comprehensive examination of your oral hygiene and lifestyle is important. Your dentist will also discuss expectations for your smile and your goals for whitening. This includes examining previous restorations and dental work that might not respond to whitening such as dental crowns.

The ZOOM Procedure

The ZOOM procedure begins by preparing and covering lips and gum tissues, so that they will not be exposed to the whitening agent. Next, the ZOOM hydrogen peroxide gel is applied. The whitening gel works in tandem with a specialized ZOOM light that breaks up stains and eliminates discoloration. This step is repeated three times, for a total of a 45-minute whitening procedure.

Had a great visit! Janice was a pleasure and Dr. Porcaro was very personable. They both made me feel at ease. The doctors husband (can’t remember his name) was able to find the best financing to fit our budget. I would definitely recommend Grateful Dental to my friends and family.
