When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, teeth whitening is big business, as individuals continue to seek the perfect smile. This is because teeth grow increasingly dull over time, especially as they are exposed to coffee, tea, sodas and highly pigmented foods. As a teeth whitening dentist in Marietta, Dr. Leia Porcaro offers patients gentle, yet powerful teeth whitening with ZOOM!
Zoom! is a bleaching process that lightens discoloration of the tooth enamel and dentin. The whitening treatment is performed chair-side, and the process is activated using a Zoom! Advanced Power Lamp. As such, the gel-like whitening substance contains 25% hydrogen peroxide that when broken down, provides superior bleaching to teeth without compromising their structure.
The Consumer Guide to Dentistry explains the Zoom! procedure, which requires less than one hour. First, it is recommended to have teeth thoroughly cleaned prior to whitening. Next, the lips and gum tissues are carefully covered, so that only the teeth are exposed. The hydrogen peroxide whitening gel is then applied to the teeth. When combined with the Zoom! lamp, the gel breaks up the stains and discoloration on the surfaces of teeth. This process is repeated in three 15-minute segments. The quick and easily tolerable whitening treatment is safe and has the power to brighten teeth up to 8 shades.
Even so, teeth whitening is not the right option for everyone. If an individual is interested in professional teeth whitening, it is important that he/she has good oral health. Aside from healthy teeth and gums, an individual’s lifestyle is considered in order to determine if they will benefit from teeth whitening treatment.
