The Easiest & Safest Cosmetic Dental Procedure Available

If you would like to have a whiter smile, we would like to help make it happen with teeth whitening. We live in an age where coffee rules, which happens to be among the most significant contributors to staining teeth and making them yellow.

While step number one to get whiter teeth would be to limit coffee intake, that might not be an option for some of us.

People regularly choose teeth whitening because they can look and feel great after the treatment. As we age, it is normal for teeth to become dull and yellow. It is in part due to age itself and also due to what a person drinks and eats. Fortunately, stained and yellow teeth don’t have to stay that way.

Teeth whitening is perhaps the easiest and safest cosmetic dental procedure available, and there are many options for achieving the desired results.

Under professional supervision, teeth whitening can be a satisfying and rewarding experience. Please consult our team of dental professionals first to ensure that you select the most appropriate option for your smile. Keep reading to know more about teeth whitening.

Teeth whitening remains one of the most economical ways to enhance your smile. Your smile creates an immediate, subconscious, visual impact on people you meet.

A brighter smile gives the impression of youth, vitality, radiant health, happiness, and warmth. It is often perceived as a healthy smile. According to an American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry survey:

  • Virtually all adults (99.7%) believe a smile is an important social asset. 96% of adults believe an attractive smile makes a person more appealing to members of the opposite sex.
  • Three-quarters (74%) of adults feel an unattractive smile can hurt a person’s chance for career success.
  • And when respondents were asked, “What would you like to improve most about your smile?” The most common response was: whiter & brighter teeth. If you are not happy with your smile, teeth whitening may be an excellent first step.

*This comparison is between zoom whitening and whitening strips

Your San Diego dentist provides Zoom teeth whitening as an innovative and effective way to transform teeth’ appearance. If you no longer enjoy your smile, have yellow or dull looking teeth, dark stains, or simply need to refresh your appearance.

When you visit our dental office for Phillips Zoom teeth whitening, you can be confident that eight shades or more will whiten your smile. This is the most dependable way to improve the appearance of your smile without undergoing major dental work.

In fact, we can complete this procedure on your lunch break, so everyone has time for a whiter smile. If you try a solution at home, it could take weeks for the process to be complete, and your teeth still will not be as white.

Suppose you have gum disease, cavities, or an infection. In that case, we want to treat this first to be in good oral health and prevent you from experiencing any unnecessary sensitivity.

Once cleared for the procedure, these are the steps that we will take:

  • Clean and polish your teeth to ensure that the whitening gel is being placed on clean teeth, rather than plaque buildup.
  • Protect your lips with a special lip cream to avoid irritation.
  • Place a retractor in your mouth to help pull back the lips and expose the teeth.
  • Next, you will bite down and rest your tongue on a cup placed in your mouth with the retractor.
  • We will use a shade guide to determine how white you want your teeth to be.
  • Next, we will set a protective solution on your gums
  • A protective solution is applied to your teeth, and then the whitening gel is evenly brushed on

As a Zoom whitening dentist, we will shine a special laser light on your teeth to activate the whitening solution. We do our best to ensure that your teeth’ final shade is one that you are pleased with.

Zoom Whitening has higher concentrations which make a more positive and equal outcome.

While over-the-counter whitening products have various levels with less effectivity that pale in comparison.

Zoom Whitening is applied by a licensed dental practitioner while you are sitting relaxed in a dental clinic. While OTC Whitening Products used at home will be it difficult to position correctly.

Most teeth can go through with this procedure. Over time our pearly whites can darken for some reasons.

Normal wear and tear, certain drinks and foods, and tobacco use are common reasons that teeth become yellowed over time.

Whether you choose to have your teeth whitened professionally, there are things you can do to prevent stains and keep your smile as bright as possible:

  • Practice good dental hygiene, and seeing the dentist for your routine cleanings.
  • Don’t smoke.
  • Be aware of the main stain culprits, such as red wine, sports drinks, soy sauce, tea, and coffee.
  • Swish water in your mouth after eating or drinking.
