According to a study published by The New York Post, more than half of the people in this country feel insecure about their smile. At least 57 percent out of 2,000 survey respondents stated they cover their mouth with their hands when they smile or laugh. The sad thing is, the average American laughs at least eight times every day, so that is a lot of time spent with reservations about showing teeth freely and confidently.
There’s no reason you should feel self-conscious about sharing your smile with the world around you. Fishinger Dental is here to help put an end to at least some of that smile insecurity with state-of-the-art teeth whitening procedures like Zoom! Teeth Whitening in Hilliard, OH.
Zoom! Teeth Whitening at a Glance
The Zoom! Teeth Whitening in-office treatment is one of the fastest routes to remove those bothersome stains from your teeth. Prior to the whitening procedure, your dentist will look at your teeth and determine if you are a good candidate for the treatment. Your teeth may also need to be cleaned prior to the treatment. The gel used in the treatment is specifically formulated for removing surface stains from the teeth and contains a certain concentration of hydrogen peroxide that is safe for the intended purpose. In collaboration with a special light to further break down the stains, the Zoom! procedure is considered highly effective to remove dental stains quickly.
Common Dental Stains Zoom! Can Help Fade
Dental stains can come from multiple things, but there are several surface-level stains that the Zoom Teeth Whitening procedure can help break down and eliminate. Some of the most common types of stains patients have on their teeth include stains from:
Eating certain types of foods on a regular basis, such as berries or deep-colored veggies
Drinking things like soda, dark-colored fruit juices, tea, or coffee
Using tobacco products
Some stains can also develop as a result of not properly having your teeth cleaned on a regular basis. Some of these stains may also break up during the treatment procedure. Intrinsic stains, which can lie deeper under the tooth enamel, will not respond to Zoom! whitening procedures or most other whitening procedures. Your dentist will go over what the expected results will be with your treatment plan.
How the Zoom! Teeth Whitening Procedure Works
The Zoom! Teeth Whitening procedure is a simple process that can be broken down into basic steps:
The dentist will cover your gums and lips to protect them during the procedure.
A specially formulated whitening gel will be applied to the teeth.
A special tray that radiates light will be placed over the teeth or in the mouth.
While you are waiting for the whitening gel and special light to do their work, you will be allowed to watch television, play on your phone, or do whatever you like to pass the time. The total treatment time can vary according to the patient. However, in general, you can expect treatment intervals of 15 to 20 minutes. Multiple treatments can be done to achieve the desired stain removal. However, dramatic whitening results can be witnessed after just one treatment, and the results have the potential to last for many years down the road.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Zoom! Teeth Whitening in Hilliard, OH?
A good candidate for the whitening procedure using Zoom! teeth whitening products will have an overall healthy mouth. If you have existing cavities, cracks, or other apparent damage to the enamel of your teeth, the whitening products can cause problems. People who have sensitivities to hydrogen peroxide, do not practice good brushing habits, or have weakened dental enamel due to a health condition may also not be good candidates. During your initial evaluation, the dentist will discuss any of these issues that may get in the way of you obtaining treatment.
