You deserve a white, bright smile. Maybe you want whiter teeth for your wedding or a new job. Maybe you’re just tired of living with teeth stained from coffee and tobacco. Whatever your reason, Zoom teeth whitening is a safe, fast and effective way to achieve the white, bright smile you’re looking for.
As we age, our teeth naturally darken, and exposure to dark foods and beverages (such as coffee, tea, soda, and red wine) can make our teeth stained and discolored. Dr. Robert Gauthier has chosen to provide his patients with the option of Zoom chair-side teeth whitening as a cosmetic dental option for patients in Northborough, MA.
In just one visit, you can improve the whiteness of your teeth by up to 8 shades. The Zoom teeth whitening system is fast and convenient with long-lasting results. The active ingredient in Zoom whitening gel is hydrogen peroxide has been used for many years and has been proven safe to whiten teeth. This gel will be activated by the Zoom light where it will penetrate the teeth to lighten stains and discoloration.
Treatment with Zoom Teeth Whitening
Dr. Gauthier will first need to do an exam to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy enough for the whitening procedure. If you have not had a dental cleaning in a while, then that will need to be performed first. You will get results if your teeth are clean and free of surface stains and plaque buildup.
You’ll be amazed at how easy the procedure is:
- Step 1: After a recommended dental cleaning, the mouth and gums are covered leaving only the teeth exposed.
- Step 2: The proprietary Zoom whitening gel is applied to the teeth.
- Step 3: A special light is used that interacts with the gel, breaking up stains and discoloration. The gel is applied for about three 15 minute sessions for a total of 45 minutes.
- Step 4: The coverings are removed and you get to leave with a whiter, brighter smile! We will supply a list of certain things you should avoid for the first 2 days to maximize your results.
The effects of Zoom are immediate and with proper care and maintenance, your new smile will always be lighter than it was before. No messy trays were needed and you are done in close to an hour. Your results will last longer if you maintain proper oral hygiene such as flossing and brushing your teeth at least twice every day.
Regular dental checkups are also important to avoid plaque buildup. You should avoid common lifestyle habits that stain and darken the teeth such as tobacco use/smoking and consuming dark foods and beverages. If you do need a touch-up, we offer an at-home whitening kit.
