When it comes to first impressions, your smile makes a difference. Stained, discolored or dull teeth can impact your confidence and have an effect on your career and social life. Teeth whitening is an excellent option for men and women looking to restore their natural bright smile.
The sheer amount of products, whitening toothpastes, and whitening strips can overwhelm even the savviest person. It’s difficult to know which option is best for your unique circumstances. That’s where we come in.
Dental expert Dr. Hannah Baek of Healthy Smile Dental in Woodridge, Illinois, understands the challenge of choosing a teeth whitening system. Dr. Baek and our team of top-quality professionals offer patients the latest advancements in dentistry. Philips Zoom!® is our top choice to give patients the best teeth whitening results possible.
We created a helpful guide to explain why Zoom! professional teeth whitening is superior to over-the-counter whitening products.
How does zoom whiten teeth?
Zoom! Is a fuss-, stress-, and mess-free teeth whitening system that couldn’t be easier. Dr. Baek conducts a comprehensive evaluation of your teeth to ensure you’re a good candidate for treatment.
Zoom! Isn’t appropriate for every situation. Teeth whitening can’t treat certain types of discoloration, including that caused by trauma, too much fluoride, or tetracycline exposure. Additionally, Dr. Baek checks your general oral health to detect issues you may need to address before teeth whitening.
At your in-office appointment, Dr. Baek fills a retainer with whitening solution and fits it tightly over your teeth.
The Zoom! whitening solution is made of safe-to-use bleaching agents that break down pigments staining your teeth. A special light applied to the teeth enables the Zoom! system to enhance the whitening process.
The Zoom! light penetrates teeth deeply to get rid of stains and areas of discoloration. The results are immediate. You can walk out of the office with teeth that are up to eight shades lighter after a single one-hour appointment.
What sets Zoom! apart?
Zoom! Is a safe, effective teeth whitening system that provides results superior to over-the-counter products. OTC teeth whiteners are less effective at whitening teeth and pose a hazard to your gums.
Unlike OTC teeth whitening systems, professional teeth whiteners undergo a rigorous process to gain FDA approval to ensure safety and effectiveness. With the Zoom! Professional teeth whitening system, you get fast results that are individualized to suit your teeth.
OTC bleaching kits are one-size-fits-all, leading to weak results. They can increase tooth sensitivity and cause irritation in the process.
Zoom! is more effective than OTC products because the light reaches all of your teeth at the same time, instead of the six front teeth reached with most at-home treatments. It’s also much faster than OTC teeth whitening system that typically takes weeks.
What results can I expect?
With the Zoom! whitening system, you’ll enjoy noticeable results immediately. Keep in mind that it takes a few days to reach full effect. How long the results last depends on your habits
All bleaching — in-home or in-office — requires occasional touch-up treatments. You can ensure your results last as long as possible by following these tips:
- Brush and floss regularly
- Get regular dental cleaning
- Avoid acidic foods and beverages
- Switch from coffee or black tea to white or green tea
- Quit smoking
- Use a whitening toothpaste
