As people age, their teeth naturally yellow. And while a few lucky winners of the genetic lottery have pearly white teeth, most others have teeth that fall a few shades short of their ideal.
Fortunately, there’s a simple solution to yellow or discolored teeth. If you live in or near Salida, CA, visit Valley Oak Dental Group for fast, effective ZOOM!® teeth whitening. Thanks to this process, your teeth can look several shades lighter after one short visit.
What Is ZOOM!® Teeth Whitening?
The ZOOM!® process is twofold. First, your dentist applies a whitening agent made of 25% hydrogen peroxide to your teeth. Next, he or she shines a ZOOM!® halide light at your teeth. This light activates the whitening solution, which scrubs stains from your enamel and dentin.
In most cases, your dentist shines the light for 15 minutes, then has you rinse out your mouth. He or she usually repeats this process twice more during the whitening session.
Who Should Choose ZOOM!® Teeth Whitening?
ZOOM!® doesn’t yield the same results for every person—the effectiveness of the procedure can depend on how old, stained, and healthy the patient’s teeth are. Only those with cavity-free teeth and healthy gums should choose ZOOM!® Teeth Whitening.
Like any whitening procedure, ZOOM!® can cause tooth sensitivity. Your dentist can let you know if you’re a good candidate for the process and what results you should expect.
