As we get older, our teeth tend to get stained. This can be caused by the foods we eat, the habits we have, or even just the aging process. Thanks to modern dental technology, it’s now easier than ever to brighten your teeth even past their natural whiteness levels. Our North Houston office uses Zoom! teeth whitening to achieve great results.
Zoom! teeth whitening consists of a whitening gel that’s applied in-office. The treatment takes about an hour and can brighten teeth anywhere from 6-10 shades in just one visit. The gel is completely safe and is activated by a low-intensity light for an easy, pain-free procedure.
While the treatment itself only takes about an hour, it’s recommended that your dentist clean your teeth first for the best results. This can tack on more time to the overall procedure, but it’s worth it in the end. Patients need not worry as cosmetic dentistry has advanced to provide a molecular level of correcting and improving the shade of your discolored teeth.
How does zoom whitening improve the shade of the teeth?
As the dentist uses teeth whitening gels over your discolored teeth, it helps to bleach the upper layer of the teeth, known as the enamel. By throwing a UV light over the surface of the teeth where the whitening gel is applied, the molecules of the whitening gel form a layer over the teeth, enhancing their color. It provides a natural glow to the enamel of the teeth, thereby giving it a glow.
To see if zoom whitening is right for you, it’s a good idea to talk to your dentist. Call Prestigious Smiles in North Houston to make an appointment today!
