What Happens During a Professional Teeth Whitening Appointment?

What Happens During a Professional Teeth Whitening AppointmentMaybe you’ve thought about getting a professional in-chair teeth whitening treatment but were unsure of what to expect. This treatment is straightforward, comfortable and yields stunning results.

The reason we chose to use Philips Zoom professional teeth whitening is because it provides our patients with beautiful gleaming results. Prior to getting Zoom professional teeth whitening, you’ll have a consultation with one of our dentists to evaluate your teeth. Next, you’ll have professional cleaning.

Why Is a Professional Cleaning so Important?

A professional cleaning helps to erase surface stains to uncover the actual brightness of your teeth before the Zoom whitening begins. This process allows your dentist to see if your stains are mild or severe and which level of treatment you’ll need.

You and your dentist also will talk about your cosmetic dentistry goals. If your dentist recommends that you need veneers or bridges, it’s advisable to have whitening done before the procedure. That way, your new cosmetic restorations will give you the brightest smile possible.

Gum Protection

Before we get started, we’ll protect your gums, so the whitening gel only touches your teeth-not the soft tissues of your mouth. Then we’ll put the professional-strength whitening gel on your teeth. A special blue light will be used to help speed up the whitening effect. We can repeat this process up to four times to help you get the maximum results.

Keeping Your Pearly Whites Bright

After your whitening treatment is completed, we can give you a take-home whitening kit from Zoom. This kit allows you to conveniently touch up your smile at home with custom trays. This form of maintenance whitening will help you to keep your pearly whites bright.

It’s also necessary, of course, to maintain optimal oral hygiene that includes brushing and flossing. We also recommend that you come in for regular checkups and cleanings. Doing so can help extend your whitening results as long as possible.
