Whitening the teeth is one of the easiest and most noticeable changes that you can make to improve the appearance of your smile. Whitening, or bleaching, is a non-invasive and simple dental treatment that will alter the color of your tooth enamel to make your smile look whiter and brighter.
At Advanced Dental Arts NW, we utilize Zoom WhiteSpeed as a professional teeth whitening procedure. In about an hour, Zoom safely and gently whitens your teeth to their brightest natural shade, removes years of discoloration, and adds youth and freshness to your smile. One big advantage of in-office whitening is that in just one visit, you get the most advanced whitening technology with the results you want. For example, Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed has been clinically proven to whiten your teeth up to eight shades in just 45 minutes!
What’s more, you can relax and listen to your favorite music or watch a movie while the soft blue LED light works its magic. We also provide materials to help you maintain that natural lightness over the years. Zoom is widely recognized as the most effective whitening system anywhere!
Caring for Your Whitened TeethTooth whitening rarely causes any discomfort, even with extended treatments. In some rare cases, though, a quick over-the-counter pain reliever may provide all the comfort needed. Certainly, any sensitivity should be gone by the following morning, and your teeth will fully retain their natural vibrancy!
Just like bleaching a tablecloth or shirt does not protect it from future staining, so is it important to remember that teeth whitening isn't a permanent procedure. Immediately following whitening, you will be advised to avoid food and beverages that can stain your teeth, so to get the most out of your results, you should be sure to avoid foods and beverages that could stain your smile, including: wine, tea, soda, and coffee. If you are a smoker, you should also consider giving up the habit. Additionally, you will likely need an annual touch-up in order to maintain your beautiful, white smile.
