Maintaining a bright and white smile on your own can be pretty difficult since a lot of factors can cause stains and discoloration in your teeth. The food and drinks that you consume on a daily basis will stain your teeth over time, even when you maintain a strict regimen of brushing and flossing after every meal. You also have to deal with yellowing teeth as you age since your genes will influence the color of your smile. While over-the-counter whitening products do work, they can only whiten your teeth by a shade or two, and this is after months of daily use. If you want noticeably whiter teeth, then the most effective way to do so would be to undergo an in-office procedure at your Texas dentist’s clinic using the Zoom! teeth whitening system.

Zoom! is one of the most requested teeth whitening procedures that patients ask for today. Treatment is finished in about an hour and the end result is a smile that’s up to eight shades brighter. This whitening system uses a particular formulation of hydrogen peroxide, which when activated with a special light would effectively break down stains and discoloration without affecting the structure of your teeth.

Your Plano dentist would need to conduct an initial exam first, to see if there are any underlying dental issues that need to be addressed before proceeding with the actual whitening procedure. Once cleared for treatment, your dentist will conduct three to four 15-minute whitening sessions on your teeth, depending on how severely stained they are and how white you’ll want your smile to be. At the end of your visit, expect to have brighter and whiter teeth that’ll have you smiling even more.

For longer lasting results, you’ll need to take some yearly touch-ups, which come at a minimal expense, so that you may maintain the color of your smile.

If you have questions about Zoom! or would want to know more about teeth whitening in general, then you would want to speak with experienced teeth whitening dentist Dr. John M. Hucklebridge. Schedule a visit by calling Plano Smile Studio at 972-398-2550 today.
