Professional teeth whitening is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to transform your smile and help you regain your confidence. Dr. Elliott offers the Zoom!™ Teeth Whitening system in our Fallston dentist office. The results of Zoom whitening are dramatic, whitening your teeth up to eight shades lighter in about one hour.
Zoom whitening treatment usually has no side effects other than possible mild sensitivity that subsides within a couple of days. Dr. Elliott will apply a special paste to the surface of the teeth during and post treatment that will minimize sensitivity. Prior to a Zoom whitening treatment, Dr. Elliott will provide patients with custom fit teeth whitening trays that will help to reduce dark spots or stains on the teeth in order to maximize the Zoom procedure results.
Zoom whitening offers results that are superior to over the counter products that are widely available. With an occasional touch up, the professional whitening treatment can last for years. It is important for patients to understand that certain lifestyle habits may affect long term results: the use of tobacco products and the consumption of dark foods and beverages (especially coffee and tea).
Zoom teeth whitening uses a special hydrogen peroxide whitening gel that is activated by the Zoom light. The gel penetrates the teeth to lighten stains and discoloration.
Other Whitening Options
Unfortunately, some people have stains on their teeth that will not respond to professional teeth whitening. The these patients, Dr. Elliott may recommend a more permanent solution such as porcelain veneers or dental crowns. At your consultation, she will discuss with you what your best whitening option is.
