Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening is a non-invasive procedure that restores the natural color of your teeth. Dr. Zakharov can recommend several teeth whitening techniques based on the needs of our patients. Some of these choices are the traditional teeth whitening procedures that take a bit of time to show results, and some are more drastic, which can produce results from the first session of whitening.

Zoom WhiteSpeed

Zoom Philips teeth whitening is a popular and effective in-office dental procedure known for its ability to significantly lighten the color of teeth in just one visit. This procedure utilizes the advanced Zoom in-office lamp to accelerate the bleaching process, combined with a specially formulated hydrogen peroxide-based whitening gel. The process typically involves the application of the whitening gel to the teeth, which is then activated by the Zoom lamp’s light. This activation helps to break down the hydrogen peroxide, allowing oxygen to enter the enamel and dentin, bleaching away any discoloration without altering the structure of the tooth.

Key Features of Zoom Philips Teeth Whitening:

  • Fast and Efficient: One of the most appealing aspects of Zoom whitening is its efficiency. The entire procedure usually takes about 45 minutes to an hour, making it a convenient option for those seeking immediate results.
  • Effective Results: Patients can expect to see a noticeable difference in the whiteness of their teeth immediately after the procedure. On average, teeth can become at least six to eight shades lighter, though results can vary depending on individual factors such as the initial degree of discoloration.
  • Safe Procedure: When performed by a trained dental professional, Zoom Philips teeth whitening is considered safe. The procedure includes protective measures to minimize gum and tooth sensitivity, such as the use of a protective barrier on the gums and the option of a post-treatment fluoride gel to reduce sensitivity.
  • Customizable: The intensity of the light and duration of the treatment can be adjusted to suit individual sensitivity levels and whitening goals, making it a customizable option for many patients.

Considerations and Aftercare:

  • Sensitivity: Some patients may experience temporary tooth sensitivity or mild gum irritation following the treatment. These symptoms are usually short-lived and can often be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers or desensitizing products.
  • Maintenance: To maintain the whitening effects, patients are advised to follow good oral hygiene practices, avoid staining foods and beverages, and consider touch-up treatments as recommended by their dentist.
  • Professional Recommendation: Not everyone is a suitable candidate for Zoom whitening. It is not recommended for children under 13, pregnant or lactating women, or individuals with light-sensitive conditions. A dental professional can determine if Zoom Philips teeth whitening is appropriate based on your oral health status and cosmetic goals.
