What is teeth whitening?
At RenovaSmiles, the experienced and knowledgeable team uses Zoom whitening treatments to remove stains and restore your bright, white smile in under an hour.
Zoom whitening saves you time and gives you better results than over-the-counter (OTC) whitening treatments. Because a dentist administers Zoom whitening, the whitener is stronger than OTC kits and doesn’t cause increased tooth sensitivity.
Why do I need teeth whitening?
When you look at photos of yourself from years ago, you may notice that your teeth were whiter and brighter. Over time, your teeth begin to look dull and yellow because of the effects of aging and the accumulation of stains. Some food and beverages that stain your teeth include:
- Red wine
Tobacco and certain medications can also discolor your teeth. Even if you avoid substances that stain your teeth, they can still start to look yellow as your protective enamel wears out. You might even be accidentally accelerating the erosion of your enamel by over-brushing your teeth.
As your enamel thins, it can no longer cover the natural yellowish appearance of the inner portion of your teeth, known as the dentin. Professional teeth whitening doesn’t just break up the stains on the surface of your teeth; it also lightens the dark color of the dentin.
How can I get my teeth whitened at the dentist?
You can choose from an in-office only treatment called Phillips Zoom White Speed. After a single 45-minute treatment, Zoom White Speed dramatically whitens your teeth by up to eight shades, which is far whiter than OTC kits can accomplish, and in a fraction of the time.
Your dentist uses a blue light to accelerate the whitening process in three 15-minute cycles. They then seal your teeth to minimize sensitivity. Finally, they give you at-home whitening trays so you can touch up your teeth between professional whitening treatments.
You can also choose Phillips Zoom Quick Pro, which consists of a 30-minute in-office treatment, plus a take-home kit. Zoom Quick Pro lightens your teeth by four shades while in the office. You then continue the whitening process with the convenient at-home trays.
