Zoom! teeth whitening treatments are incredibly popular for Rochester, MI area patients who are interested in rejuvenating their appearance and boosting the brightness of their smiles. John L. Aurelia, DDS, PLLC is a quality dental practice that understands the importance of a smile that exudes confidence and therefore provides patients with treatments such as Zoom! in-office power bleaching.
Zoom! whitening takes place in the dental office and is incredibly fast. Most patients are able to enjoy their new smile in less than two hours. The process starts with cleaning the teeth, which removes plaque and tartar that can inhibit the bleaching gel from providing thorough results. The gel is activated with a specialized light and it provides fast effective whitening solutions for patients who want a quick alternative to over-the-counter treatments.
Many patients are unsure about what to expect after their Zoom! whitening treatment. We will discuss with individuals post-treatment care instructions for optimum results and less sensitivity.
Patients who undergo Zoom! teeth whitening will need to use their Relief ACP gel and trays supplied to them to reduce sensitivity. Patients may also find that they benefit from the use of over-the-counter medication to help address any “zingers”they may experience from the sensitivity. Patients can also use these trays along with whitening gel to maintain the results of their procedure and enjoy long-term brilliance.
Immediately after the procedure, patients are encouraged to avoid certain foods and drinks that are known for staining the teeth for at least 24 hours. This includes drinks such as red wine, coffee, and tea, as well as foods such as ketchup, mustard, fruits, berries, and soy sauce. All of these items can affect the whitening results and they should be avoided. Patients who smoke should avoid doing so for approximately two hours after their procedure. Staining potential must be considered when consuming foods and drinks after Zoom! teeth whitening to ensure the results last as long as possible.
