Rochester area dentist describes Zoom! teeth whitening
Dr. John L. Aurelia understands that Rochester Hills area patients want to enjoy beautiful, stunning smiles. A set of “pearly whites” can improve confidence and make a dramatic first impression when meeting others. While there are shelves full of take-home whitening solutions at the local drug store, these are not always the best solutions. Many of these fall short of providing quality results, and even if they do, they are not nearly as long-lasting as professional whitening products. This is why patients are strongly encouraged to visit their local dentist to learn more about Zoom! teeth whitening.
Zoom! teeth whitening is an in-office procedure used to rejuvenate the teeth. The enamel of the teeth can become discolored and stained over time, showing dull, yellowed teeth. The best way to quickly rejuvenate the smile is with Zoom! teeth whitening, a professional method of bleaching the teeth that is affordable, fast, and effective.
Zoom! teeth whitening is done in the dental chair with the assistance of Dr. John L. Aurelia. Patients are first examined to determine if this is the best solution for them. The dentist takes into consideration one’s complete medical and dental history when determining if whitening treatments such as Zoom! are appropriate. Patients with restorations may be less desirable patients for this treatment as these restorations (such as veneers, crowns, dental bonding, etc.) will not respond to the bleaching solution and may need to be replaced to match the new shade.
Once patients have been given the “go ahead” to complete whitening, they will relax in the dental chair while special whitening gel is applied to the teeth. This gel is activated using a specialized light, and within just an hour or two, the teeth become brilliantly white. Patients are often able to whiten the teeth up to eight shades in one visit. Dr. John L. Aurelia may also suggest professional-grade take-home whitening trays to maintain the results over time, ensuring that the whitening effects are held over the years. Patients may also be educated on the habits, foods, and drinks which may have caused the discoloration and follows up with patients to make sure the whitening results have held.
