Once you learn that professional teeth whitening is an option, you may not want to wait to begin treatment. However, the first step to achieving a more radiant smile is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Nelson. It is during this appointment that he will perform a thorough examination of your teeth and gums to make sure you exhibit good oral health. He’ll also likely discuss your current oral hygiene routine as well as your lifestyle habits (i.e., do you smoke, do you tend to bite your fingernails, etc.).
After going over your smile goals and determining which method of treatment is right for you, he will formulate a personalized plan.
You should know that if you possess any restorations (i.e., dental fillings, crowns, bridges, veneers, etc.), they will not change in color should you choose to pursue teeth whitening.
When arriving for your first Zoom! Whitening treatment, Dr. Nelson will begin by cleaning your teeth before covering your lips and gums, so they are not exposed to the bleaching agent. Leaving only your teeth exposed, he will apply the Zoom! whitening gel that consists of hydrogen peroxide. Combined with a specialized light, the two components work together to penetrate the tooth enamel and break up any intrinsic and extrinsic stains.
Applying the gel in 15-minute increments, you will notice a dramatic difference in the shade of your teeth by the end of your appointment. Taking only one full hour to complete, this method of treatment makes it quick and easy for patients to enjoy a brighter smile that can last a long time.
Apart from the in-house treatment provided, Dr. Nelson will also provide a touch-up kit you can use at home should you need to re-apply the whitening gel to give your smile an added boost.
When it comes to receiving Zoom! Whitening treatment, you will discover there are an endless number of benefits that make it a worthwhile investment, including:
