What is Zoom Whitening?
Philips Zoom Tooth Whitening is a safe and effective tooth whitening treatment that can be delivered either at home or in our dentist’s office. In about one hour, our Winston-Salem Peace Haven dentist team can deliver a customized treatment to make your smile whiter!
Zoom Teeth Whitening works on all kinds of stains, whether they are from coffee, soda, wine, tobacco use, some medicines, or damaged teeth. It uses Philips’ Zoom Blue LED technology and a custom whitening solution to instantly brighten your teeth. The whitening gel is enriched with Amorphous Calcium Phosphate (ACP) in order to strengthen your enamel and avoid any pesky sensitivity from whitening. If you’d rather do your tooth whitening at home, we also offer take-home options, with custom trays and whitening solution strengths.
How Does Philips Zoom Teeth Whitening Work?
Whether you choose to do your Zoom Teeth Whitening at home or in our dentist’s office, you’ll get better, faster results than you would from an over the counter treatment!
Our team at Peace Haven Family Dentistry will make sure you have custom fitted trays and calibrate the strength of the whitening gel to your teeth and needs. Seeing our Winston-Salem Peace Haven dentist team for your Zoom Whitening will help you avoid the sensitivity, frustration and lackluster results that often come from over the counter drugstore whitening solutions. Whether you choose to whiten at home or in the office, you’ll see professional results from your Zoom tooth whitening.
Zoom Teeth Whitening in Winston-Salem, NC Dentist’s Office
When you come into our Peace Haven Family Dentistry office for your treatment, we use whitening lamps and apply stronger whitening products to give you a significantly brighter smile in about an hour.
Our most advanced option in Peace Haven Family Dentistry is Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed. The quick, instant results will give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of in a little over 45 minutes. Zoom WhiteSpeed can remove years of stains from food, aging, tobacco and even some medication. You’ll be smiling with confidence as you leave our Winston-Salem dental office with a smile that’s whiter.
Zoom WhiteSpeed uses three 15-minute cycles of gel and blue LED lamp application over a 45-minute period. Once the treatment is finished, our team will apply a special protective gel to strengthen your enamel and eliminate any sensitivity. We’ll also give you a take home whitening kit, complete with a set of customized whitening trays. With Philips Zoom Whitening, you’ll see a significant change in tooth brightness from the very first visit, perfect for instant whitening before a wedding or big event. Say goodbye to lackluster over the counter results and uncomfortable sensitivity, and hello to that million-dollar smile!
Teeth Whitening at Home
We also offer options for you to do your teeth whitening treatments at home. After a consultation with a member of our dental team, we can give you everything you need to get affordable, professional whitening results in less than two weeks.
Our take-home options start with one of our dentists making you a customized set of trays. We will make sure your trays fit your mouth perfectly. Custom trays allow us to make sure that the whitening formula fully covers your teeth but avoids your gums, giving you faster and safer results.
Your Peace Haven Family dentist will then prescribe you varying strengths and types of whitening gel, carefully formulated to your needs and when you want to wear your trays.
Does Whitening Hurt Your Teeth?
Poorly applied whitening or at home treatments can sometimes hurt or cause tooth and gum sensitivity. However, coming to see your experienced Peace Haven dentist for your tooth whitening will significantly reduce your risk of discomfort from the whitening process.
Zoom teeth whitening uses a specially formulated peroxide gel which is safer than other whitening methods. The addition of carefully calibrated ultraviolet light during a Zoom White Speed treatment will also provide dramatic and instant results without damaging your enamel.
Our Winston-Salem dentist will always provide a thorough cleaning and consultation before each treatment. We will prepare custom fitted trays and carefully adjust the strength of the whitening solution to your teeth and needs, delivering a brilliant smile.
If we’re providing the trays and solution for Zoom Whitening at home, your Peace Haven Family dentist will also make sure you have plenty of guidance, and that we’ve answered any questions you may have. And as an advantage over any over the counter treatment, one of our experienced professionals will closely monitor every step of your tooth whitening journey and make sure you avoid any tooth or gum sensitivity.
Although numerous studies have shown that although poorly performed tooth whitening can cause sensitivity, that’s just another reason to place your treatment in the safe hands of our dental professionals! Tooth whitening treatments do not permanently cause any pain or damage to the nerves of your teeth.
Can I Get Zoom Whitening?
Zoom Teeth Whitening is suitable for many types of stains and patients, but there are a few people and teeth it won’t work for. Because the process works by brightening your enamel, it won’t work on any stains caused by deeper tooth decay. It’s not suitable for many crowns, fillings, and veneers for the same reason. And if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, it’s probably best to wait until you’re finished to come in for your tooth whitening!
How Long Does Zoom Whitening Last?
Most of our patients find one Zoom Whitening treatment is enough for long-lasting results and they don’t need many follow up treatments. Of course, over time if you’re drinking lots of black coffee or eating foods which tend to stain your teeth, you will need another round of Philips Zoom Teeth Whitening, but in general we wouldn’t expect to perform treatments more than once a year. Many patients find their Hollywood perfect smiles last even longer than that too!
Taking Care of Your Teeth after Zoom Whitening
As a general rule of thumb – if a food or drink can stain your clothes, don’t eat it for 48 hours after your tooth whitening! Try and avoid anything that could stain a white shirt, like sauces, tea, or coffee, as well as acidic foods like citrus fruits which can weaken your enamel. This will ensure that your teeth stay gleaming white and don’t pick up any new stains. If you can’t live without your morning coffee, drink it using a straw to avoid any contact with your teeth.
Of course, continuing good oral hygiene is also important after tooth whitening treatments. Take good care of your teeth to preserve your shiny new smile, and make sure you’re flossing, brushing, and regularly using mouthwash to keep your teeth and gums healthy. It’s a good idea to come in to see our Peace Haven dentist team every six months for regular checkups and cleanings where we can recommend any follow up treatments as needed.
