Getting a white, sparkling smile is easier than you have ever imagined. Miami Oaks Dental offers Zoom! ™ whitening, a type of teeth whitening. This revolutionary teeth whitening procedure takes about an hour to make your teeth dramatically whiter, by up to six to ten shades. Zoom!™ whitening requires only one visit to our office and gives you great results.
The teeth are one of the first characteristics noticed on an individual; therefore, it is no surprise that teeth whitening is among one of the popular dental procedures. The Zoom!™ whitening procedure is ideal for just about any patient who has discolored or stained teeth. However, results may vary depending on the individual; patients may anticipate a dramatically whiter smile after just one treatment. Our team will evaluate the condition of your teeth to help you decide if Zoom!™ whitening is the right option for you.
The Zoom!™ procedure is simple. First, our dental technition will begin with a short preparation to cover the teeth and gums, so that the teeth are the only area exposed. Then, the Zoom!™ whitening gel is applied to the teeth. Using the Zoom!™ laser, the gel and light work together to gently penetrate the teeth and break up stains. The gel will be applied for three, 15-minute intervals. Total treatment time is approximately 90 minutes
Many of the patients at Miami Oaks Dental have discovered the benefits of laser teeth whitening. The light we use is not actually a laser, but a patented whitening lamp. During the treatment, whitening gel is applied to the teeth and then activated using the unique Zoom!™ whitening lamp. Deep stains and discoloration from coffee, soda, tea, tobacco, and even prescription medication are removed instantly! Zoom! ™ whitening is a great alternative to traditional whitening methods that use trays and gradually show results over time – Zoom!™ results show quickly. Whitening from this treatment is generally brighter than alternative whitening methods.
Over-the-counter or at-home whitening treatments, such as whitening strips, can provide individuals with a brighter smile; however, they can have many disadvantages. Oftentimes, allergic reactions can occur if someone has sensitive teeth and/or gums. Also, at-home treatments do not provide the same lasting results as in-office treatments. Zoom!™ whitening is done under the care of our doctors and team, who is experienced and knowledgeable in dental whitening and care.
After your whitening treatment, it is important to maintain results by being committed to good oral hygiene. Also, for longer lasting results, it is crucial for patients to refrain from habits such as smoking or drinking dark liquids, which are known to stain teeth over time. If a patient is going to consume stain-causing foods or beverages, such as coffee, tea, or wine, they should brush with a whitening toothpaste or rinse immediately after. This will help to prevent further staining and/or yellowing of the teeth.
