Have you noticed that your smile is not quite as bright as it once was? Over time, everybody’s smile will dim or turn a shade of off-white. Even with diligent at-home brushing and flossing, you cannot avoid it. Thankfully, many options are available to individuals in Marrero, Louisiana. While you could choose a convenient over-the-counter option such as whitening toothpaste or whitening strips, these options have limitations that a professional whitening treatment from Dr. Diem Do, and the team at Smile in Style, Diem Do DDS provide. Let us look at some of the advantages an in-office whitening offers and then compare that to what you can expect from an over-the-counter option.
In-Office Whitening Treatments
When your teeth become stained and discolored, you may find that you are hiding your smile. In pictures, you are the only one not smiling. At celebrations, you consciously keep a stoic look to hide your teeth. These are situations you can easily take back with a beautiful smile again, thanks to Zoom in-office whitening treatments. With Zoom in-office whitening treatments, your teeth can be restored to that beautiful white shine you have been looking for.
When you choose Zoom, you don’t have to worry about some of the shortcomings of an at-home treatment you buy at your local drugstore. With at-home treatments, you could misuse the bleaching agents and damage your tooth enamel, leading to an increased risk of cavities. When you choose Zoom, the treatment is performed by your dental team using a light accelerate bleaching agent. This agent cuts down the time you spend in the dentist’s chair while still getting brilliant results. Before you can be determined a good candidate for the Zoom whitening treatment, your dentist will need to examine your teeth and gums to make sure your oral health is in a healthy state.
A routine teeth cleaning will then be performed before your gums and mouth are covered so that only your teeth are exposed to the Zoom whitening gel. A specialized light will be applied to the gel for accelerated results. Depending on the level of staining, multiple fifteen-minute intervals may be needed, up to a maximum of three intervals. When you walk away, you will have beautifully white teeth!
Why Choose Zoom as Opposed to Over-The-Counter Options?
When you settle for products such as whitening toothpaste or strips that you can buy at your local grocery or drug store, you are doing just that – settling. These products cannot provide the same results that you desire because the strength of the bleaching agents cannot compare. Even still, the bleaching agents used by some of these products can be misused, leading to damaged teeth.
With whitening trays that you can buy, they are one size fits all. As you know, everybody has a different and unique smile. So then, how could a product meant for your smile be one size fits all? Many of these require you to microwave or boil the whitening tray, after which you will bite down to mold it to your teeth. That is not the best system because even though you are molding your teeth, it still isn’t perfect. The tray may not contact the entire surface of your smile, leading to uneven results.
If you genuinely want a whiter smile, choosing a Zoom whitening treatment from your local dentist is your best path forward. Patients in Marrero select Diem Dr. Do and the team at Smile in Style, Diem Do DDS. Please call (504) 340-9400 today to schedule an appointment!
