One cosmetic procedure that has become very popular in recent years is teeth whitening. Teeth start to yellow due to a variety of reasons, such as tobacco usage, staining from foods and drinks, and natural yellowing over time. Fortunately, there’s a way to achieve brighter teeth in Peoria, Arizona – the BriteSmile and Zoom! Whitening systems at Plaza Family Dental. There are many options available for teeth whitening, including gels, strips, and toothpaste that are available at the store, but treatment at the dentist office will always give better and more immediate results.
The BriteSmile whitening system is an in-office treatment that can whiten smiles an average of three shades during one treatment. The BriteSmile whitening gel will be applied to the teeth. The active ingredient in the gel is hydrogen peroxide which, when activated by the BriteSmile light, begins to break down, oxidizing the enamel and dentin. This process bleaches any colored substance but leaves the structure of the tooth unchanged. All the patient has to do during this time is to sit back and relax, letting the system do its job. The entire procedure takes approximately two hours, a time which includes a preparation period, one hour of bleaching, a fluoride treatment at the end, and possibly preceded by a dental cleaning. A possible side effect of the procedure is increased tooth sensitivity, but this should go away in about one to three days. Considering BriteSmile teeth whitening in Peoria? Let us know!
Another in-office treatment available is the Zoom Teeth Whitening system. Like BriteSmile, this system consists of a gel that is applied to the teeth and light-activated. With this system, a smile can appear brighter by eight to ten shades in about one hour. After the procedure is completed, a take-home touch-up kit will be provided along with instructions on how and when to use it. Interested in Zoom teeth whitening in Peoria?
