There are a few different methods of brightening teeth, but Zoom treatments are one of the more popular options among dentists. It uses a special solution that penetrates your enamel and breaks up stain molecules underneath. This way, we can treat the source of discoloration whether it’s on or below the surface of your tooth.
There are two different options for Zoom teeth whitening in Saginaw. You can have an in-office treatment done if you want faster results, but for those who don’t mind waiting a couple of weeks to see significant changes, take-home kits are also available.
For the in-office treatment, after we make the necessary preparations to your mouth, we’ll apply the whitening gel and shine a special UV light on it to activate the ingredients. This is done for about 15 minutes at a time so that we can check your teeth and make sure that the procedure is going smoothly.
If you get a take-home kit, it’ll contain personalized trays to hold the bleaching solution. You’ll wear the trays at your own convenience for a set amount of time each day in order to gradually break down the staining substances.
Zoom teeth whitening gets rid of the molecules that cause stains altogether; in other words, it’s a permanent process. With that said, new stains could form on your teeth in the future. If you want to enjoy your new dazzling smile for as long as possible, protect yourself from new tooth discoloration by:
