How long do the results last?
The length of time will depend on the habits of the patient, including whether or not he or she smokes, drinks coffee, red wine, or soft drinks. Teeth whitening results can last 5 years or longer or only 2 or 3 if teeth are not cared for. However, the patient can retouch the whitening procedure with home products we have for maintenance. Attending periodic dental checkups will also be indispensable in maintaining a bright smile.
Is there any difference between over-the-counter teeth whiteners and Zoom teeth whitening?
Yes! Over-the-counter teeth whitening strips, brush-on gels and toothpastes take several months to whiten your teeth just a few shades. Zoom is clinically proven to whiten your teeth eight shades in one hour. Zoom! can be used on persons of any age.
Do many people whiten their teeth?
All cosmetic dental procedures, including whitenings, are becoming more popular. A bright sparkling smile can make a big difference for everyone. The Zoom whitening system makes it easier and faster than ever before.
Who may benefit from Zoom teeth whitening?
Most everyone can benefit, but some more than others. Our cosmetic dentists can determine if you are a viable candidate for this procedure through a thorough oral exam, including a shade assessment.
Is it safe?
Yes. Extensive research and clinical studies indicate that Zoom! whitening under the supervision of a dentist is safe. Many dentists consider whitening the safest cosmetic dental procedure available.
