What is professional teeth whitening?

As you get older, your teeth may start to stain due to your food and drink choices. It’s only natural to want to keep your teeth a beautiful, white shade.

Although there are many over-the-counter teeth whitening options, Forrest Dental offers Zoom! whitening, which can brighten the color of your teeth by seven shades in just one visit.

This professional teeth whitening option is proven safe and effective, bleaching your stained teeth without damaging their structure.

How does teeth whitening work?

When you visit Forrest Dental, the team makes sure you’re comfortable. Before your treatment, you’re provided headphones for listening to music or watching a movie.

Your provider covers your lips and gums, leaving only your teeth exposed. Your dentist then applies the Zoom! teeth whitening gel and activates it with a special light that breaks up stains and discoloration and penetrates your teeth deeply for 15 minutes. 

They repeat this process three times to reach the maximum results, taking about 45 minutes in total.

The final step involves applying a fluoride paste that reduces your sensitivity to the bleaching gel. 

Is teeth whitening right for me?

When you visit Forrest Dental, your dentist reviews your dental history, examines your teeth, takes dental X-rays, and talks with you about your desired outcome. The information gathered can help determine if you’re a good candidate for professional teeth whitening.

How can I maintain my teeth whitening results?

Once your teeth experience professional teeth whitening, you should avoid certain drinks and foods or use them in moderation. They include:

  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Red wine
  • Dark juices
  • Dark colas
  • Berries
  • Chocolate
  • Tomato sauce

The team also recommends that you don’t smoke. Also, discuss your medications because some can discolor your teeth. In addition, be sure to practice healthy oral hygiene habits, and keep your annual routine visits with Forrest Dental. 

Forrest Dental team can also take a mold of your teeth and provide customized trays with professional teeth whitening gel to give you the option of maintaining your teeth whitening at home.
