Many of our patients are interested in quick and easy cosmetic procedures that can enhance their smiles in a dramatic way. Our teeth whitening solutions provide an excellent option. However, as with any treatment plan at our office, there are a few important questions to discuss before we choose the best option. Here are the top four teeth whitening questions you can ask our team, brought to you by the Philips Zoom Whitening:
1. Why should I whiten my teeth through the dentist’s office?
Dental whitening treatments are better for those that suffer from teeth sensitivity that arises from the use of at-home whitening strips. Dr. Niakiani is able to control the whitening treatment more thoroughly and accurately, resulting in a much better patient experience.
2. What are the possible side effects?
As is the case with any whitening treatment, patients may feel some initial sensitivity. However, the Zoom! Whitening product contains two mild desensitizing agents, potassium nitrate and Amorphous Calcium Phosphate (ACP), to minimize tooth sensitivity.
3. What are the results I can expect?
Results are very hard to guarantee, as each person’s dental and physical health is different. However, we often see teeth up to 8 shades whiter in one 45-minute office visit. While we can’t guarantee this for every patient, we can say that nearly all of our patients are happy with their results. Working with a dentist allows us to work with you until you achieve the results you are looking for.
4. How long will my results last?
Zoom! whitening results typically last for about a year, although behavior, habits, and genetics have a great impact on this. As you can imagine, drinking liquids that stain your teeth, such as red wine or coffee, will cause the effects to be dampened over time.
