A vibrant, healthy smile projects confidence, warmth, and approachability. It can dramatically improve your self-image while opening doors for you that you might not even have known existed. If your teeth have become discoloured due to stains and the natural passage of time, then the quickest route to a rejuvenated, radiant smile may be professional teeth whitening, available at Parshin Dental. We are pleased to offer the Zoom! in-office teeth whitening system at our Brooklyn and Staten Island, NY cosmetic dentistry offices. This represents the professional whitening system preferred by more patients worldwide than any other brand.
Dr. Alex Parshin has chosen to offer Zoom! whitening over alternative brands because he feels that it offers the best results in just a single office visit. He carefully screens potential teeth whitening candidates to ensure that they can undergo treatment without any enduring any serious complications such as long-term increased teeth sensitivity. Among proper candidates, Zoom! teeth whitening is one of the most transformative, yet cost-effective treatments in all of cosmetic dentistry.
Are you a good candidate for teeth whitening using the in-house Zoom! system? To find out, we encourage you to schedule your initial consultation with Dr. Alex Parshin at Parshin Dental today.
Are you a good candidate for Zoom! teeth whitening?
The Zoom! teeth whitening procedure is simple and straightforward. You will first meet with Dr. Parshin for a private, one-on-one consultation, during which he will perform an oral examination to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for teeth whitening. The best candidates for teeth whitening will be in good oral health with mouths that are free from:
- Periodontitis, the advanced form of gum disease
- Loose or fractured teeth
- Teeth suffering from enamel erosion
- Aged dental restorations
- Other serious dental problems
Many patients with older dental restorations choose to have them replaced with newer porcelain veneers, dental bridges, or dental crowns that complement their newly whitened teeth after treatment.
How does Zoom! whitening work?
The Zoom! teeth whitening procedure begins with the isolation of the gums from the teeth, which protects the delicate periodontal tissues from harm. A hydrogen-peroxide-based gel is then applied to the surfaces of the teeth. When this gel is exposed to the proprietary Zoom! light, the gel breaks down and penetrates the protective enamel layer of the teeth. This is necessary to achieving the best results, as the most stubborn stains reside beneath the enamel, which is why they cannot be removed by brushing and flossing.
It is the hydrogen peroxide within the Zoom! gel that destroys the carbon bonds responsible for the stains caused by coffee, tea, tobacco, soda, red wine, tomato sauce, and other staining agents. The gel remains on the teeth for 15 minutes and then is removed. After a brief period, the gel is reapplied, and the process is repeated. After three 15-minute cycles, the teeth whitening procedure is complete.
Zoom! teeth whitening is most effective at eliminating surface stains that are yellowish in color; however, virtually any stain will become lighter after treatment. On average, patients experience smiles that are three shades whiter after a single treatment session. Results can last for two years or even longer with good oral hygiene and routine visits to our practice for oral exams and professional cleanings.
How does Zoom! professional whitening compare to over-the-counter whitening products?
As over-the-counter whitening products such as Crest Whitestrips become popular, many patients ask Dr. Parshin whether the Zoom! in-office professional teeth whitening system is truly worth the additional expense. The truth is that there is not one single over-the-counter teeth whitening product on the market that can offer results anywhere near the quality of the Zoom! whitening system.
With Zoom! whitening, you will emerge with teeth that are multiple shades whiter after one hour, results that can last for years. With over-the-counter whitening products, you will have to invest much more of your time to achieve far lesser results, and you will have to use the product continually to maintain those results. Ultimately, you will probably end up spending more money over a five-year span than you would have paying for a single professional whitening treatment.
Additionally, even the safest over-the-counter whitening products can accidentally be misused, putting people at risk of causing irreparable damage to their teeth and gums. The professional supervision that comes with Zoom! teeth whitening is worth the cost of treatment in and of itself.
