There are two main varieties of teeth whitening services available, in-office and take-home kits. Here at Summit Dental Group we offer both. We want you looking your best and as confident as you can be. We utilize Zoom Whitening for both of our options. Your teeth are highly susceptible to discoloration over time. This is a great and safe way to reverse these effects.
Why Do My Teeth Change Color?
There are a lot of different reasons that your teeth may become discolored. It happens just from aging, but daily activities can have an impact as well. Discoloration comes from stains on the enamel and dentin of your teeth. This can come from aging, smoking, and some medications. Most commonly, stains come from foods and beverages. These include coffee, wine, tea, and heavily pigmented foods like dark colored berries. These stains can be bothersome cosmetically and can make it difficult to feel good about your image.
What is Zoom Whitening?
There are a wide variety of teeth whitening products, from toothpaste to strips and gels. Zoom Whitening is a professional whitening system, which makes it safer, fast acting, and more easily controlled. We offer two different options for this tooth bleaching process. The first of these is an in-office treatment in which we will apply the bleach for you. We can help you find the specific solution for your needs and help you to achieve a brighter smile in one appointment. It is safe, and we will be able to monitor it completely.
Another option for Zoom Whitening is take-home trays. For this option, we will take impressions of your teeth and send them to our lab. There, we will make custom trays that fit precisely with your bite pattern. You can apply the bleaching gel and take part in the process entirely from your home. This increases convenience and comfort for many of our patients.
How Does It Work?
The whitening gel in the Zoom Whitening system's primary active ingredient is hydrogen peroxide. While the hydrogen peroxide breaks down, the oxygen can enter your tooth without damaging it or alter the tooth's structure. The oxygen lifts the stains and bleaches the discolored dentin and portions of your teeth. We also use a special light designed to assist the bleaching process. This acts as a catalyst for the procedure, allowing the bleaching to occur more quickly. This increases the effectiveness of the product by 33% or more. You can reach up to eight whole shades brighter by the end of your treatment!
