Zoom!® Teeth Whitening in South Bend, IN

When it comes to teeth, the general consensus is that the whiter the better. However, sometimes people don’t have the time to wait the weeks it takes using a specialty toothpaste or at-home whitening kit to get a brighter smile. Luckily for these individuals, there is a solution that allows them to have whiter teeth fast. The Zoom!® whitening system has been shown to effectively improve the look of teeth in about an hour – and our South Bend dentists perform it for you.

The Zoom!® system uses a unique gel that is applied to the teeth, and then a special light is used to help accelerate the bleaching process. During the Zoom!® whitening process, the hydrogen peroxide in the gel is broken down and enters the enamel and dentin to bleach the stained surfaces. This whitens the teeth while leaving the structure unchanged. All of this takes place in about the course of an hour, and the Zoom!® system has been shown to leave teeth up to eight times whiter. Clearly, one simple trip to the dentist can result in these dramatic improvements.

Before the our South Bend dentists will perform the Zoom!® whitening, they will give each patient a full dental exam. We want to make sure that you get the exact results that you’re looking for, which means correctly identifying the underlying cause behind tooth discoloration. While a diet rich in sugary foods, red wine and coffee, combined with insufficient dental care habits can all cause teeth to lose their shine, serious dental issues could also be the reason behind discoloration. Tooth decay or defective fillings can also cause teeth to become yellow, and if that is the case then it’s important to have these problems treated. Furthermore, gum disease and other basic dental issues should be taken care of before whitening can occur.

When people leave the dentist’s office after receiving Zoom!® whitening treatments, they will be tempted by all of the bad habits that caused their teeth to yellow in the first place. Our South Bend dentists understand this, which is why they provide each patient with an at-home teeth whitening kit to help withe their maintenance of their newly-whitened teeth. To craft these kits, the dentist will make an impression of each patients teeth to create a tray that will fit perfectly, the dentists will also provide patients will detailed instructions to make sure they use them correctly. So contact a South Bend dentist today and learn more about Zoom!® whitening.
