Teeth Whitening at Boiling Springs Family Dental

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dental procedure designed to enhance the brightness and radiance of a person’s smile. It involves the application of specialized products or techniques to lighten the color of teeth, effectively reducing stains and discolorations caused by factors such as aging, consumption of staining foods and beverages, and tobacco use.

Two primary methods are commonly employed for teeth whitening: in-office treatments supervised by a dentist and at-home treatments using dentist-prescribed kits. In-office procedures often utilize more potent bleaching agents and advanced technology to achieve faster and more dramatic results. At-home options include custom-fitted trays and whitening gels, allowing patients to brighten their teeth over a longer period.

While teeth whitening is safe and non-invasive, it may cause temporary tooth sensitivity or gum irritation. Individuals with certain dental conditions, such as enamel erosion or hypersensitivity, should consult a dentist before undergoing whitening procedures. With its ability to significantly rejuvenate smiles and boost self-confidence, teeth whitening continues to be a sought-after solution for those desiring a more vibrant and youthful appearance.

Experience Zoom! Teeth Whitening

If you prefer teeth that are immediately whiter right now or you would rather whiten your teeth over a few nights while you sleep, we have your answer with Zoom! The Zoom! In-Office Whitening System uses proprietary technology to whiten your teeth an average of eight shades* in a little over an hour while you relax at your dentist’s office. It’s ideal for anyone who wants immediate results. The Zoom! Take-Home Whitening System uses a revolutionary patent-pending gel to whiten your teeth an average of six shades in three nights*. And you may go even lighter with additional applications. Start on Friday and by Monday you’ll have a whole new smile.

Strips or paint-on gels are a waste of time. Get your teeth whiter in a fraction of the time with Zoom.

Zoom! is a bleaching process that lightens discoloration of enamel and dentin.

There are many causes. The most common include aging and consumption of staining substances such as coffee, tea or tobacco. During tooth formation consumption of tetracycline, certain antibiotics or excessive fluoride may also cause tooth discoloration.

Just about anyone can benefit from tooth whitening. However, treatment may not be as effective for some as it is for others. With an oral exam, Dr. Williams can determine if you are a candidate for this procedure, including a shade assessment.

Absolutely! A bright, beautiful smile can make a big difference. The Zoom! Whitening System makes it easier and faster than ever before.

Yes, research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth under the supervision of a dentist is safe. In fact, many dentists consider whitening the safest cosmetic dental procedure available. As with any tooth whitening product, Zoom! is not recommended for children under 13 years of age and pregnant or lactating women.

By following some simple post whitening care instructions, your teeth will always be lighter than they were before. We recommend flossing, brushing twice daily with Zoom! Whitening Toothpaste, and touch-ups with Zoom! take-home gel. These are professional formula products designed specifically to keep your teeth their brightest. They are available through our office.

Yes! Consulting with us is always the first step to whitening your teeth safely. Over-the-counter tooth whitening strips, brush-on gels and toothpastes take weeks or months to whiten your teeth just a few shades. Zoom! is clinically proven to whiten your teeth eight shades* in one hour or six shades* in just one weekend.

The Zoom! light-activated whitening gel’s active ingredient is Hydrogen Peroxide. As Hydrogen Peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, bleaching any colored substance while keeping the structure of the tooth unchanged. The Zoom! light aids in activating the Hydrogen Peroxide and helps it penetrate the surface of the tooth.

No. During the procedure, patients can actually watch television or listen to music. Many fall asleep.

Some people experience temporary increased tooth sensitivity to cold during treatment. These symptoms disappear within 1-3 days after interruption or completion of the treatment.

The entire procedure takes just over one hour. The procedure begins with a preparation period followed by one hour of bleaching. A five-minute fluoride treatment completes the procedure (we recommend a cleaning prior to the actual Zoom! Whitening session).

The Zoom! take-home gel is designed to be worn between four and eight hours per application. We will advise you on how long you should wear each application. A recent study showed that you can achieve an average improvement of six shades* after just three nights of use.

We will help you determine how many applications are right for you.

Five stars. Dr. Williams and staff are very friendly and supportive. I’ve gone for regular check ups, fillings, and crowns and never had a bad experience. They were very accommodating when I had a few last minute emergencies and followed up regularly to ensure I was okay. 100% recommend to anyone looking for a dentist.
