5 Reasons to Whiten Teeth with Zoom Whitening

Start your new year with a whiter smile with Zoom teeth whitening! There are many different types of whitening methods out there, but not all of them will whiten your teeth quickly or evenly. Zoom light-activated whitening gel’s active ingredient is hydrogen peroxide. This is a substance that helps get the teeth truly whiter compared to “whitening” toothpastes and other products. We pair this substance with our special dental-grade light to get your teeth whiter in just one office visit. Want to see what Zoom teeth whitening can do for you? Here are 5 reasons to get that brighter, whiter smile today!

 

Why Is Your Smile Important?

A good smile can change your perception. In a study conducted by Invisalign, they interviewed more than 2,000 people on the street. Comparing two pictures side-by-side, they took in people’s initial reactions to seeing images of people. The study was comparing a person with a bright, white, straight smile compared to someone that had a crooked or discolored smile. This is what the study found:

  • 73% of people were more likely to trust a person with the whiter, straighter smile.
  • 58% viewed those people as being more confident, wealthy and healthy, simply based on their photo.
  • Potential employers were more likely to hire the person with a better smile.
  • The person with a whiter, straighter smile seemed more confident than the other.

Without knowing that the smile was the focus of the study, a person’s smile still affected the viewer. Studies show that 1/3rd of people remember a person’s smile more than any other feature. What is your smile telling others? That you’re confident? Happy? Successful? It can say just that with the right oral hygiene and our Zoom whitening treatment!

 

Tooth Staining and Discoloration

Your teeth become discolored through various reasons. Here are some tidbits to know:

  • Your teeth will become discolored over time, even when you have done professional-grade whitening. If you’re taking care of your teeth, the average amount of time between professional whitenings is about 7 years.
  • Discolored and stained teeth happen due to foods, drinks, and habits (such as smoking).Extrinsic discoloration occurs as the outer layer of our teeth (the enamel) becomes stained. This is caused by smoking, coffee, wine and soda, which not only stains the teeth but leaves them susceptible to tooth decay. Intrinsic discoloration, on the other hand, develops as the inner structure of the tooth, (dentin), darkens.
  • Dental hygiene will significantly contribute to you keeping your teeth healthy and white, or if they become discolored or susceptible to tooth decay easily. Make sure you follow the American Dental Association’s recommendations for brushing, flossing, and visiting the dentist. Brush at least twice a day for 2 minutes a day and floss 1-2 times a day. Visit your dentist for cleanings and disease prevention at least every 6 months.
  • Watch your diet when it comes to sugars, acidic substances (like sodas and juice), tobacco and alcohol products. Sugars mix with mouth bacteria to create acidic plaque, which erodes and decays your teeth, changing their color. Any drink with carbonation or citric acid in it will do the same. If you don’t control your diet, you’ll have to whiten your teeth much more often.

Whatever the cause of your discolored teeth, there are ways to brighten your teeth and give you your confidence back.

 

A Note About Whitening Products

Did you know that not all whitening products actually whiten the teeth? Whitening toothpastes will say they “whiten”, but you must check labels to know for sure. Most toothpastes will whiten only by brushing away plaque and other gunk on the teeth. A product must have either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide in it for real whitening power to take effect.

 

Toothpastes will have very minimal amounts of this whitening ingredient in them, if any. Over-the-counter pastes and gels will have more, but only dental products from a dentist will have the most whitening power.

 

How Does Zoom Whitening Work?

Zoom teeth whitening is our most powerful whitening system in-office. You can get your teeth up to 8 shades whiter in just one appointment. We use dental-grade hydrogen peroxide gel on your teeth that can’t be found over-the-counter. We pair this with our Zoom whitening light to cure the gel on your teeth.

 

As hydrogen peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, bleaching any colored substance while keeping the structure of the tooth unchanged. We monitor your whitening process to make sure it’s even and minimal tooth sensitivity happens. Instead of waiting weeks or months for a whiter smile, you can get it in one visit!

 

Zoom teeth whitening offers these 5 benefits:

  1. Whiter teeth in just one appointment because of the professional dental-grade materials used.
  2. Whiten teeth from the comfort of your home if you invest in our Zoom whitening take-home kit.
  3. Formulated for sensitive teeth, so you get your teeth whiter with less sensitivity.
  4. You can eliminate tooth stains and discolorations that have been around for years.
  5. Patients will boost their confidence in just one visit. Come in with gray or yellow teeth and leave with a bright, white smile!
