Quick and Easy Teeth Whitening from Midtown Dentistry
Whether you decide to get your teeth whiter at home or the Midtown Dentistry Houston office, the procedure is easy.
Your Zoom! teeth whitening appointment starts with our trained professionals taking a mold of your upper and lower teeth for the Zoom bleaching trays. These trays are options, but they can be used to whiten your teeth at home to keep them bright and white months after you’ve had them done at Midtown Dentistry.
Next, we’ll determine which tooth shade is best to match your teeth. Then we’ll gently place a retractor in your mouth to help keep it open during the procedure. We’ll also apply a special liquid to your gums to help prevent any sensitivity from the whitening gel.
The rest of the procedure requires you lay back in the dental chair wearing a protective eye glasses. The gel is activated by a special bright light that we’ll shine onto your teeth for 20 minutes. We repeat the light shining process twice.
The entire procedure takes just over one hour.
When the final cycle is complete, you can look in the mirror and admire your new, bright white smile.
IS TEETH WHITENING SAFE?
Clinical studies and research indicate that tooth whitening is safe if used by a trained professional like your Houston dentist. Zoom is also FDA approved.
Note that you should not use any tooth whitening product if you are pregnant or breast feeding.
HOW LONG DOES ZOOM! TAKE-HOME WHITENING TAKE?
The Zoom! take-home gel is designed to be worn between four and eight hours per application. Your Houston dentist at Midtown Dentistry will advise you on how long you should wear each application.
A recent study showed that you can achieve an average improvement of six shades after just three nights of use. Your dentist will help you determine how many applications are right for you.
The main difference between the Take-Home and In-Office teeth whitening systems is that you use the Zoom! Take-Home Teeth Whitening System in the convenience of your own home over a few nights. The Zoom! In-Office Teeth Whitening System is performed entirely in the office.
The Midtown Dentistry office has been a leading research partner with Discus Dental, the owner of the Zoom! Teeth Whitening System. Our dentists have conducted many of the clinical trials of bleaching, and bring you this experience to provide the highest level of success.
