Zoom Teeth Whitening
We recommend patients who are interested in whitening their teeth use the Zoom Teeth Whitening solution. This procedure allows your teeth to become whiter and much faster than if you are to try a kit at home.
Before starting the procedure, your dentist at Manhattan Dental Arts will ensure that your teeth are in fit and healthy condition. We will perform certain safeguards to prevent any issues with tooth sensitivity. This is one of the main benefits of whitening your teeth under the supervision of a dentist.
When you whiten your teeth at home, there is a risk of overexposure to the teeth whitening solution and, as a result, they could become sensitive. Also, most of the over the counter solutions such as whitening strips or trays, actually only remove surface stains that are on your teeth.
It is a fact that the staining and yellowing is due to staining under the enamel. Therefore, you need a whitening solution that will be able to penetrate this. Our Zoom Teeth Whitening solution can penetrate the enamel. When this happens it begins the process of oxidization causing the molecules inside your teeth to reflect less light and therefore appear colorless. This is how the process of teeth whitening is created and is what actually produces these dramatic results. While many people that whiten their teeth at home will see improvements, they don’t see an improvement to the degree that will make a significant impact. In fact, after a while, your teeth may return to the color they were before. This is typically due to the quality of the teeth whitening solution used and the fact that the teeth whitening solution is not left on the patient’s teeth long enough.
At Manhattan Dental Arts, we have performed thousands of teeth whitening procedures at our dental office on the Upper West Side. When you visit our office, we can review all of your options with you and create a treatment plan that will give you the brightest and most beautiful smile. We highly recommend that you try Zoom teeth whitening for the best possible results. If you have any remaining stains, we can discuss other cosmetic solutions for covering them like placing dental veneers for a more attractive smile.
We also recommend that if you are planning on having other dental work performed such as dental implants, crowns, or veneers, that you have your whitening procedure completed first since these restorations are bleach resistant. Timing is critical when planning a smile makeover so we will let you know if Zoom should be part of this process.
