Whitening is an in-office whitening treatment provided by your dentist in Trenton and Hamilton, NJ. When good oral hygiene doesn't seem to be giving you the whiter smile you desire, Zoom! Whitening may do just the trick.

Tooth Discoloration

Living in an appearance and youth-conscious society, dull, stained teeth represent a common dental complaint. Tooth discoloration falls into two main types: extrinsic and intrinsic. While extrinsic occurs in the outer layer of the tooth (enamel), intrinsic discoloration occurs in the inner structures of the tooth (dentin). Extrinsic stains can range from white streaks to yellow tints or brown spots and pits, while intrinsic stains occur when the dentin darkens or displays a yellow or gray tint.

Tooth discoloration can be caused by:
* Foods and drinks such as coffee, tea, colas, blueberries, cherries, etc.
* Tobacco use
* Poor dental hygiene
* Disease
* Medications
* Aging
* Trauma

What is Zoom! Whitening?

Zoom! whitening is a bleaching process that is widely used around the world to lighten discoloration of enamel and dentin. The Zoom! in-office tooth whitening procedure uses the Zoom! Advanced Power Chairside Lamp to activate the 25 percent hydrogen peroxide whitening, which is said to accelerate the bleaching process. As the hydrogen peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin to bleach the stained substances, leaving the structure of the tooth unchanged.

The complete Zoom! whitening procedure takes less than an hour, but a regular teeth cleaning is recommended before your whitening session to provide the best results. Your whitening procedure begins with a short preparation to cover your lips and gums, leaving the teeth exposed. Your dentist will then apply the Zoom! hydrogen peroxide whitening gel, which works together with the Zoom! light to penetrate the teeth and break up the stains and discoloration.

The Zoom! gel will remain in place for 15 minutes while the light is activated. During this time you can sit back and relax while the Zoom! gel whitens your smile. The gel is applied for three 15-minute sessions of light activation, for a total treatment time of 45 minutes.

If you are not happy with the color of your teeth, consult your Trenton cosmetic dentist for the best option to whiten your teeth. Teeth whitening is not for everyone, but with proper assessment by your dentist in Hamilton and Trenton, a whitening plan can be created for your specific needs.
