Zoom whitening takes about 60 minutes, but you may need an extra 30 minutes for a thorough oral exam, medical check, and teeth cleaning. The dentist will also mark the current shade of your teeth to track the progress of your whitening treatment.

Teeth whitening in Bellflower, CA is a straightforward, non-invasive dental solution for changing the color of natural tooth enamel, and enhancing the appearance of your smile. 

Is Teeth Whitening Right for you?

Getting whiter teeth is considered the most popular esthetic concern for most dental patients. Common reasons for teeth whitening include:

  • Normal wear of tooth enamel
  • Excess fluoridation (fluorosis) during early tooth development
  • Stained teeth due to smoking or medications like tetracycline
  • Brown or yellow stained teeth

Generally, any patient above the age of 10 years can consider teeth whitening to enhance their smile and boost confidence. However, it is not recommended for patients with oral issues such as dental cracks, leaky fillings, or dental decay, because the whitening products may irritate the tooth nerve, resulting in discomfort or more damage. In addition, patients with short teeth or a gummy smile may not necessarily look better after bleaching because whiter teeth tend to accentuate a gummy smile.

Schedule Your Consultation

Before you decide to whiten your teeth, it is important that you get a proper dental examination that includes X-rays to help establish the cause of tooth discoloration. In some cases, staining can be an indication of dental disease that requires a different treatment. But for simple whitening, options include bleaching from inside the tooth, for a dead tooth that has a root canal, or a single-tooth bleaching tray for a living tooth. Once the cause and extent of discoloration and staining are known, you and your dentist can explore the different whitening options that apply to your case. 

Teeth usually don’t get discolored uniformly. So your dentist will come up with an appropriate strategy to whiten each tooth sufficiently to give you a uniform smile. This means that you can also choose to whiten only one or two teeth, or more.

Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure in Bellflower, CA. For many, achieving a bright smile gives them the confidence necessary to reach their goals and enjoy life. At our dental practice, we desire to offer our patients the latest whitening techniques which is why we recommend Zoom teeth whitening treatment.

How It Works

Zoom is a popular in-office bleaching treatment used to lighten enamel discoloration. Before the procedure, you will have regular professional teeth cleaning to get rid of plaque and tartar. Here are some other things to expect:

  • Preparation – Zoom whitening takes about 60 minutes, but you may need an extra 30 minutes for a thorough oral exam, medical check, and teeth cleaning. The dentist will also mark the current shade of your teeth to track the progress of your whitening treatment.
  • Zoom Whitening – The dentist will use cheek retractors and cotton rolls to protect your gums, tongue, and other soft tissues from the chemicals. A protective layer will also be painted on your gums before the whitening starts. Once your teeth are exposed, your dentist will apply the whitening gel, and allow it to remain in place for 15 minutes. During this time, the Zoom light will be used to activate the gel so it penetrates the tooth enamel to remove the discoloration. As the treatment progresses, you can listen to music, watch TV, or just relax. A full Zoom whitening treatment requires 3-4, 15-minute meetings, so the treatment takes a maximum of one hour. When the treatment is complete, the dentist will apply a fluoride gel to reduce tooth sensitivity.
  • At-Home Whitening – To maintain the results of the whitening, we will give you a Zoom touch-up kit with individually made whitening trays to use at home. We will give you detailed instructions on how to use the kit.
