How Can We Whiten Teeth Using Peroxide?

Teeth whitening treatments are much sought after by many individuals not only for their aesthetic benefits (shinier teeth leading to a better smile), but also for their immense psychological benefits. An individual with shinier teeth will be less hesitant in smiling and will eventually see a rise in self-confidence and be able to have a more fulfilling personal and professional life.

Although the shade of your natural teeth is not white, with aging and due to lifestyle factors, your teeth may start to look dull over time. Your dull-looking teeth may prevent you from smiling as often as you may like. If you would like to enhance the appearance of your smile, please look for your nearest dentist by searching for Zoom Teeth Whitening Calgary.

Though there are various procedures to whiten your teeth, by far teeth whitening through bleaching is the most widely used due to the quick results that are produced by this process. However, bleaching may not work on fillings, crowns, or bridges. It is recommended to consult your dentist before starting this treatment. Your dentist will examine your teeth and assess if you are a suitable candidate for teeth whitening through bleaching.

A process that is widely followed by dentists at their clinics (in-office) is called the Zoom Teeth Whitening process. In this process, a hydrogen peroxide-based solution is applied to your teeth. Once this is done, the Zoom Advanced Power Chairside Lamp is used to hasten the bleaching process. This results in the compounds present in hydrogen peroxide to break down and react with your teeth to give you up to 10 shades of whiter teeth. Your dentist supervises the procedure all throughout to ensure optimum results.

The Zoom Teeth Whitening process causes some sensitivity in the teeth which soon goes away. As a follow-up procedure, your dentist may also give you take-home whitening trays. As this procedure is performed under the guidance of your dentist, the side effects are quite minimal.

The effects of this procedure can last up to 3 years.  However, the effects can start to fade off depending on your oral care regimen and your lifestyle habits i.e., how often do you consume tea, coffee, tobacco, or other products that induce staining of the teeth.

Though peroxide-based teeth whitening can be done on most individuals, there may be occasions where the results may not be optimal. Please look for your nearest dentist by searching for Zoom Teeth Whitening Calgary.
