What is Zoom! Laser Teeth Whitening?
As used on the hit TV Show – Extreme Makeovers, we use the Zoom! Teeth Whitening system. A translucent bleaching gel is applied to the teeth and a laser light is used to activate the crystals to absorb the energy from the light and penetrate the teeth enamel to increase the whitening effect on the teeth. With only a 90-minute in-office procedure, patients can whiten their teeth on an average 2-6 shades lighter while relaxing and listening to music in a spa-like setting.
Remove Discoloration With Professional Laser Teeth Whitening & Bleaching
Teeth stains are a common factor that can lead to dull, unattractive smiles. While stores are brimming with whitening toothpaste and strips, these over-the-counter options rarely offer the same level of whitening as a professional teeth whitening system. At Central Avenue Dental, our dentists can brighten your smile with the professional Zoom! laser teeth whitening system in Queens and NYC.
What Causes Teeth Discoloration?
Why do our teeth develop unsightly stains? There are a variety of factors behind discoloration, including:
- Smoking or tobacco use
- Drinks with dark pigments (coffee, tea, soda, or red wine)
- Plaque buildup
- Certain medications
Before recommending a cosmetic solution to your discoloration we may first examine your teeth. We will identify the causes and severity of your teeth stains, deciding which of our cosmetic treatments will best address the issue.
With Zoom! professional teeth whitening, we can often brighten teeth by between two and six shades, all in as little as an hour and a half. First, our laser teeth whitening dentists place a protective covering over your lips and gums. We then apply the powerful teeth bleaching gel. The gel’s ingredients are activated with the use of a curing light. At this stage, the bleaching ingredients enter the enamel and begin removing discoloration. Soon, you can receive more dramatic results than would be possible with over-the-counter teeth whitening solutions.
How Do I Keep My Smile Bright
Once we’ve removed your teeth stains with the Zoom! laser teeth whitening system, you’re probably wondering what you can do to keep your teeth bright and beautiful. There are actually a few simple steps you can take to reduce the severity of future stains and help your smile remain bright for longer.
Our dentists recommend:
- Brushing your teeth twice a day
- Always flossing before going to bed
- Having your teeth professionally cleaned twice a year
- Cutting back on sodas with dark pigments
- Eating healthier snacks with a lower sugar content, such as fruit, vegetables, nuts, or low-fat yogurt
Not only will these steps help you hold on to your new smile, but you can actually improve your overall oral health, reducing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Remember, a beautiful smile is often an indicator of a healthy one.
