ZOOM2! Teeth Whitening in Sharon, MA
Less Sensitivity and Better Whitening With ZOOM2!
Store bought whitening products cannot safely or effectively deliver the dramatic change professional teeth whitening can. Using store bought products can easily increase your chances of gum irritation, damaging your enamel, and post-whitening sensitivity. That’s why Dr. Agamov uses ZOOM2!, the latest edition of the ZOOM! teeth whitening system.
The Benefits Of ZOOM2! Teeth Whitening
Benefits of teeth whitening with ZOOM2! include:
- Quick and simple visits
- Safe and effective treatment
- Whiter, longer-lasting results
- Boost in self-confidence
- 67 percent less sensitivity than the original ZOOM!
Common Causes of Tooth Discoloration
There are multiple reasons why your teeth become stained, discolored, or yellowed over time. Common reasons include:
- Eating certain foods, such as dark fruits
- Drinking coffee, red wine, and tea
- Taking certain medications
- Tobacco use
- Poor oral hygiene
- Alcohol abuse
Regardless of the reason, a number of common factors combine to make it harder to keep your smile white. Tooth discoloration being so common is responsible for the increasing popularity of whitening kits and products readily available to everyday consumers.
Downsides of Store Bought Whitening Products
Paint On Whiteners
Paint on whiteners add white color to your teeth and are generally cheap, easy to access and easy to use. Unfortunately, this whitening effect doesn’t last more than 24 hours.
Whitening Toothpaste and Mouthwash
Whitening toothpastes and mouthwashes don’t actually whiten your teeth. They slightly lighten the color of your teeth by removing some surface stains. These products only work over extended periods of time and have to be used regularly to be effective.
Whitening strips, while more effective than the previous methods, are easy to misuse, which could lead to damaged enamel. Weaker enamel means higher levels of sensitivity and weaker overall tooth structure.
Store Bought Whitening Trays
Store bought, non-custom trays can be uncomfortable to wear and increase your chances of the gel coming into contact with your gums and causing irritation.
The ZOOM2! Process
Before having your teeth whitened with ZOOM2!, you’ll undergo a consultation with Dr. Agamov. This consultation will allow Dr. Agamov to review your medical history and evaluate your overall oral health to ensure your teeth can be whitened safely, comfortably, and effectively.
Dr. Agamov will also discuss your whitening goals with you, so she can provide the treatment that best fits your expectations and your budget.
We’ll protect your lips, tongue, and gums before whitening to ensure the bleach stays on your teeth and can’t irritate other parts of your mouth.
Your Whitening Procedure
ZOOM2! works through the application of the powerful whitening gel to clean, dry teeth. The gel will be activated via exposure to a special lamp. After fifteen minutes, we’ll remove the old gel and apply new gel for a total of three, 15 minute sessions. In less than an hour, most patients will have a smile that’s six to eight shades whiter.
Frequently Asked Questions
To maintain the results of your whitening treatment as long as possible, Dr. Agamov recommends following these tips:
- Practice regular oral hygiene methods such as brushing and flossing twice a day.
- Schedule bi-annual appointments at our Sharon, MA office for cleanings and exams.
- Avoid certain foods, beverages, and tobacco products.
- Refresh your results with professional ZOOM! at-home whitening treatments.
In order to treat deep stains, teeth whitening agents penetrate the surface of your enamel and expose the dentin layer. The dentin layer houses living tissue and nerves inside of your teeth. Upon exposure to these bleaching agents, it’s not uncommon to experience some mild discomfort and sensitivity.
Fortunately, this sensitivity tends to go away on its own within three days. ZOOM2! teeth whitening reduces post-whitening discomfort, but some minor sensitivity is normal. If you want to manage post-whitening sensitivity, Dr. Agamov recommends following these tips:
- Use tooth mousse
- Coat your teeth in vitamin E oil
- Use toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth and a soft-bristled toothbrush
- Avoid ingesting hot and cold foods and drinks for three days after your whitening procedure
- Take an over the counter pain reliever
