When most people think of a beautiful smile, the image that fills their head is one of a smile with bright, white teeth. Having a dull smile with yellow or stained teeth can affect your self-esteem and leave you wary of smiling at all. At Dentalways, we believe that having a beautiful smile can not only increase your confidence level but improve your overall quality of life, too. Now that Spring has arrived, it’s the perfect time to freshen up your smile by whitening your teeth. While over-the-counter products such as whitening toothpaste and strips do produce results, it can take a long time to see a difference and generally will never live up to the effects seen from professional whitening. Dentalways is proud to offer our patients professional in-office whitening with Philips Zoom! teeth whitening technology. The Zoom! whitening process is a very safe, quick and painless procedure. Once resting comfortably in one of our dental chairs, the technician will apply a special whitening gel onto the teeth and then focus the LED WhiteSpeed light over the teeth. This light activates the hydrogen peroxide in the gel and will be left on for about 15 minutes. Many patients will see a noticeably whiter smile after just one visit, and will complete 3-4 treatments to achieve their desired level of whiteness. In addition to the in-office treatment, Dentalways also sends each patient home with a custom tray and tubes of bleach to maintain their whitening results. Some patients will experience increased tooth sensitivity as a side effect of the whitening, but this usually subsides quickly. If you have questions about the Zoom! teeth whitening process or would like to schedule your whitening appointment, give us a call at 501-753-7366 or fill out our Contact Form today!
