How Zoom! Can Change the Appearance of Your Smile

How Zoom! Can Change the Appearance of Your Smile

The holiday season is officially here, and that means parties with friends and family, dinner celebrations, and lots and lots of smiles. But if you have stained, dull, or discolored teeth, you may worry about showing off your grin. 

The good news is that with professional teeth whitening, you don’t need to let your less-than-pearly-white smile take the joy out of your holidays. In Butte, Montana, board-certified dentist Robert F. Wilcox, DMD, uses the Philips Zoom!® in-office whitening system to give our patients the brightest smiles possible. 

Take a moment to learn how you can transform your smile with the power of Zoom!.   

The secret behind Zoom! whitening

You’ll love the way Zoom! seems to magically change the appearance of your smile, but the transformation is based on science, not magic. Zoom! combines the bleaching power of 25% hydrogen peroxide with the strength of ultraviolet light to brighten your smile and remove unsightly stains. 

First, Dr. Wilcox checks your dental history and assesses your teeth to make sure this type of teeth whitening is right for you. 

While Zoom! excels at removing stains caused by age or pigments, it isn’t right for people with intrinsic dental stains, like those caused by trauma or dental injury, excessive fluoride, and certain medications. 

You also discuss your whitening goals with Dr. Wilcox and choose a target shade. We keep your gums safe with a protective covering and fit a tray with the Zoom! whitening solution over your teeth. Dr. Wilcox then puts the Zoom! light in place to enhance your whitening. 

Throughout your appointment, Dr. Wilcox checks at your teeth and compares them to the shade guide to check your progress. Each time, he consults you so you’re in charge of determining when you want to continue with treatment and go shades whiter and when you’re ready to stop. 

The best part? Zoom! has been proven safe and effective for most people. It can take your smile up to eight shades lighter in just one appointment, making your smile bright this holiday season.   

Keep your smile bright all year long

Your Zoom! whitening results are immediate, and they can last up to two years if you take steps to prevent stains from developing. To keep your teeth whiter and brighter long after the holiday season ends, avoid these beverages, which are high in stain-causing chromogens:

Dr. Wilcox and our team understand that during the holiday season with so many celebratory dinners, parties, and merrymaking get-togethers, it can be challenging to avoid all beverages that may cause dental stains. So enjoy yourself and the season, but if you indulge in any beverages that may stain your teeth, use a straw to limit their effects. 

Brush your teeth as soon as possible once you’ve finished drinking. But we know you can’t always get to your toothbrush right away, so try swishing with water to wash away some of the stain-causing substances.   

Get and keep your smile merry and bright with the help of Dr. Wilcox and the power of Zoom! whitening. Contact our Butte, Montana, office to schedule an appointment today.
