Laser Teeth Whitening from the Dentist in Pensacola
Teeth naturally darken with age. Some people experience more discoloration than others, but most people will notice their smile looking less white as they get older. No matter how good your dental hygiene practices, are, frequent exposure to tobacco, black coffee, tea, and other factors cause teeth to gradually lose their luster.
Fortunately, professional teeth whitening can help rejuvenate your smile. There are a number of options available these days, but nothing reveals results as bright as laser Zoom! Whitening from your dentist in Pensacola. Dr. Benjamin Hodges can whiten your teeth by up to eight shades in just one hour with this revolutionary treatment.
The Zoom! Whitening Process
Zoom! Whitening combines a high powered whitening gel with a special laser light to break through stains on the surface of and just below your tooth enamel. Even the most stubborn stains, like those caused by tobacco and medications like tetracycline, can be erased with this powerful laser whitening treatment.
To begin with Zoom! Whitening, we will cover up your gums, lips, tongue, and cheeks, leaving only your tooth enamel exposed. Then, your hygienist or dentist carefully applies the Zoom! Whitening gel on the front surface of the teeth that show when you smile. The bleach is activated under the laser light in three 15 minute intervals. At the end of the third light application, the treatment is complete -- and the results are simply stunning.
Advantages of Zoom! Whitening
Zoom! Whitening is the most powerful and efficient whitening treatment currently available. We prefer this system for its results and ease of application. You don’t have to do anything special to undergo Zoom! Whitening -- though you may want to brush with an anti-sensitivity toothpaste in the weeks leading up to the treatment.
Benefits of Zoom! Whitening include…
- Teeth whitened by up to eight shades
- Results ready in less than an hour
- Breaks through the toughest stains
- Laser power allows for extreme precision
- Results can last for years
Zoom! Whitening Aftercare
The first 48 hours following your Zoom! Whitening treatment are crucial for maximizing your results to help you enjoy the brightest, whitest smile possible. During this period, you should avoid tobacco, all highly pigmented foods and beverages, brightly colored lipsticks, fatty foods like potato chips, ripe red berries, tomatoes, mustard, ketchup, soy sauce, and other colored sauces.
Your teeth may also be a little sensitive right after your whitening treatment. Chewing sugarless gum to balance pH levels in your saliva and taking an over the counter pain medication should help. Brush with an anti-sensitivity toothpaste for additional help combating discomfort. Avoid fluoride treatments during this time.
After the first 48 hours are complete, you can continue eating and drinking as you like. To enjoy your dazzling white teeth for as long as possible, avoid tobacco, drink dark beverages through a straw, and rinse your mouth with water after consuming dark foods and beverages.
