Zoom! Teeth Whitening
Dr. Umekei Smith is pleased to offer the new Zoom! In-Office Advanced Power Whitening System to patients in her Houston office. This system is ideal for those who want dramatically whiter teeth with minimal investment of time. The procedure usually takes about an hour from beginning to end and produces immediate results. In most cases, teeth become at least six to ten shades whiter, with some patients experiencing even further improvement in the days following the procedure. You will leave our office with a brilliant new smile and none of the inconvenience associated with at-home tray bleaching systems.
The Zoom! teeth whitening process is entirely painless and, for some, even relaxing. Many patients fall asleep during the procedure, waking up to whiter, healthier looking teeth. Furthermore, the process is completely safe. Aside from a possible heightened sensitivity to cold for two or three days following the procedure, you will experience no side effects.
At the beginning of the process, a 25% hydrogen peroxide gel is applied to your teeth. Upon exposure to a special Zoom! lamp, the gel breaks down, penetrating the teeth removing stains and discoloration. After about an hour, a brief fluoride treatment is done and the entire process is finished. Your teeth will be amazingly whiter, results that – with proper maintenance and routine dental exams – can last for up to five years. Whenever it becomes necessary, the process can be repeated.
Not everyone is an ideal candidate for Zoom! Advanced Power Whitening. If you have extremely sensitive teeth or gum disease, you may be discouraged from undergoing any sort of bleaching. In these cases, Dr. Smith offers a number of alternatives to achieving a brighter, healthier smile. Also, for those who prefer not to have the procedure done during an office visit, we also offer an effective at-home Zoom! Whitening System.
If you would like to find out if this revolutionary tooth whitening technology is right for you, please contact Dr. Umekei Smith’s Houston office today to arrange an initial consultation. We are always happy to hear from prospective patients and to answer any questions you may have!
