Over time, our normal everyday habits such as drinking coffee or tea can leave a mark on our teeth – contributing to a dull, unattractive and discoloured appearance. It’s really not fair!
Studies even show that most people associate a beautifully bright, white smile with happiness and success. It’s no wonder consumers have spent more than a billion dollars on over-the-counter whitening products since the year 2007. Unfortunately, many don’t realize that these products aren’t nearly as effective as a professional whitening treatment at the dentist’s office.
If you’ve been longing for a set of new and stunning pearly whites to boost your confidence and improve your appearance, Philips Zoom Whitening is the answer! Proudly offered as a service at South Muskoka Dental, this safe and non-invasive whitening system can whiten the shade of your teeth by as much as eight shades, in as little as 45 minutes to an hour.
So, how does this convenient technology work? A special light-activated gel containing Hydrogen Peroxide is applied to the patient’s teeth in three short sessions. The remarkable Zoom Light then works its magic on the gel as oxygen enters the dentin and enamel, eliminating discoloration and stains– all without changing or affecting the tooth’s natural structure. Amazing, right?
The Zoom Whitening treatment is extremely successful, with typical results lasting about a year. Patients can maintain their white smile by following the care instructions provided by their practitioner and by practicing healthy oral habits like brushing and flossing regularly, and scheduling frequent dental cleanings. Habits such as smoking and consuming foods or beverages known to stain the teeth should be avoided to get the most out of your new smile following treatment. For optimal maintenance, patients can use the Philips Zoom Pen to whiten on-the-go if their dentist feels it is suitable for them.
Patients can expect some tooth and gum sensitivity after their treatment, but this is completely normal and usually disappears within 1-3 days after the procedure. In the meantime, sensitivity can be resolved with the use of a desensitizing toothpaste at home, or with anti-inflammatory pain medication if discomfort persists. Your dentist will work with you to ensure you’re fully satisfied with your results and are comfortable during and after the procedure. While patients of most ages can enjoy the benefits of the Zoom whitening treatment, younger patients wishing to whiten should hold out on the procedure until their enamel has matured completely.
While this whitening technique can be on the pricey side, it’s surely worth the cost – especially if you want a substantial improvement. Incomparable to over-the-counter whitening products, The Zoom Whitening system can dramatically whiten the colour of your teeth and will leave you feeling like a new, vibrant you in no time!
