Whiten Your Smile With In-office And Take Home Whitening Kits From Zoom! And Sapphire Whitening

By: Gen Wright

We all want a sparkling white smile, but time and what we eat or drink can leave us with dark or yellow teeth instead. This is because teeth absorb the colors of what comes into contact with them - especially red wine, cola, and coffee, as well as smoking. The good news is that today there is an array of dental products and procedures available that can help restore your yellow teeth to their original color. From in-office Zoom! whitening and Sapphire Whitening systems to take-home whitening kits, your dentist can help you significantly whiten your smile.

Experience the Quick Results of 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.

One-Hour Teeth Whitening with Sapphire

The Sapphire Whitening system is made by Den-Mat, the same makers of Lumineers. The system is used by over 4,000 dentists, with approximately 250,000 patients having undergone this whitening treatment. Sapphire professional teeth whitening is a safe, gentle, and effective way to whiten teeth and achieve that bright, healthy, youthful looking smile you have always desired. Sapphire whitening can make your smile over seven shades brighter in one easy office visit.

Sapphire is a revolutionary teeth whitening system that combines the powerful effects if the Sapphire Plasma Arc Light, along with professional-grade teeth whitening gel. The combination of light and gel work together to give you a whiter, more stunning smile in less time than other forms of teeth whitening. In less than an hour you will be able to start sharing your beautiful smile with your family, friends, and anyone you may meet.

Take - Home Whitening

When used as directed, dentist-dispensed whitening trays and strips can even be more successful than in-office bleaching in the long run. The key reason to at-home whitening success is their ongoing use and the fact that only small amounts of bleach remain within the tooth structure for up to 36 hours. When a new dose of bleach is applied to a tooth that is retaining the previous day's peroxide, the effect is greater.

Even though you can get over-the-counter whiteners without a dentist's recommendation, if you over-use them or use them incorrectly, they can harm your tooth enamel and irritate your gum tissue. Over-bleaching can also produce an undesirable bluish hue, chalky whiteness, or uneven results. Supervision by your dentist can help prevent these problems.

To ensure the health of your smile, visit your San Bernardino, CA dentist before choosing an over-the-counter tooth whitener and beginning the whitening processes. Your dentist can make the best recommendation based on your individual needs.
