Quality Dentistry in Downey offers multiple teeth whitening options but one of the most popular is Zoom! Zoom! Teeth Whitening has made it easier for you to get a whiter and brighter smile in under an hour. Most patients see instant results that can last up to 6 months depending on the foods and drinks you consume.
Teeth stains are inevitable due to our consumption of a variety of foods and drinks (soda, spicy food, coffee, etc.). However, advanced teeth whitening technology has enabled dentists to whiten teeth without adversely affecting the tooth structure.
Teeth Whitening Methods
Almost all methods are similar in concept, but some are much more effective because of the way the whitening material is delivered to the teeth. The two main methods of professional whitening are tray whitening and in-office whitening. In tray whitening, an impression is taken and a custom tray is made for the patient. Then, a supply of whitening gel is given to the patient and he/she wears the tray for a few hours each day (techniques differ) for a period of time until an acceptable result is achieved. Sensitivity of the teeth is a normal side-effect of this whitening method and is almost always transitional.
The procedure is virtually painless, some patients might experience minor sensitivity for 1-2 days after the procedure. You may also receive a take home teeth whitening kit to maintain the shades of your teeth.
Our take home teeth whitening kits consist of 2 customized trays that fit your exact teeth and whitening gel. All the teeth whitening procedures that we offer are safe and effective.
It is recommended that you receive a dental exam and basic cleaning before any teeth whitening procedure is done. This will ensure that you get the best results from the whitening treatments.
