Over time your teeth can change from white to not-so-bright for a number of different reasons. Our teeth are porous just like our skin. This means the surface layer has permeable, microscopic holes. These pores allow anything that comes into contact with your teeth to seep into them, leaving unsightly stains over time. Beverages such as coffee, tea, and red wine, as well as foods like berries will eventually lead to discoloration in your tooth enamel.
If you're looking to bring the radiance back to your smile, you're in luck. SKS Dental helps the people of Arlington and the surrounding communities whiten their teeth with both in-office and at-home Zoom! Whitening treatments.
How Does Zoom! Work?
Zoom whitening works by immersing your teeth in a specialized whitening gel that soaks into the pores of your teeth, where it breaks down the chemical bonds of the stains and gently pushes them out. Depending on your specific needs, there are multiple options available for this procedure.
We can perform the whitening in-office, or provide you with a take-home kit to brighten your smile on your own time.
When you opt for in-office Zoom! whitening treatment, Dr. Sabharwal prepares a stronger, more concentrated form of the whitening gel to apply to your teeth. This gives quicker results under the expert application of our experienced dentist.
The treatment takes 30-45 minutes, and can easily be tacked onto a routine exam to save you an extra trip. The best part is that you see significant results after just one treatment.
At-Home Whitening Kits
In addition to in-office treatment, SKS Dental can also provide you with Zoom! whitening kits to take home. This allows you to enhance your smile whenever and wherever you are.
These kits consist of whitening gel and custom-fitted trays made to conform to your teeth and gum line. After brushing your teeth to clear excess plaque and debris, you apply the gel to the trays and place them over your teeth.
After about 30 minutes, the trays should be removed and thoroughly cleaned with cold water, followed by a rinse with mouthwash to clean the leftover gel from your mouth. This process is repeated daily for two weeks until complete, leaving you with a more radiant smile.
