Details of the teeth whitening procedure
First, the dentist will apply a bleaching solution to your teeth, taking special care to avoid interacting with the lips or the gums. A uniquely designed heating system then is activated, causing the bleaching compound to better penetrate the tooth’s enamel, removing deeply ingrained discoloration and staining.
The total time for one session is typically 15 minutes or less, and the procedure can be repeated for ideal results. The teeth whitening procedure is painless, and does not typically cause any anxiety for patients who might otherwise feel nervous going to the dentist.
Any cavities must be filled before having a whitening treatment. Our team at Soft Touch Dental will check for cavities before starting your teeth whitening so the gel doesn’t leak beneath the surface and cause damage.
The Zoom2! procedure is one of the most effective forms of teeth whitening. It uses two different components to achieve maximum results: a powerful whitening gel and a specially-designed light that activates the gel. The gel is made using a pH balanced hydrogen peroxide formula that is gentle on the teeth while penetrating deep into your teeth to provide long-lasting results.
The entire office visit usually lasts about 1 hour or less, making it easy to fit into your schedule, with beautiful results that are immediately visible.
