Teeth usually start out white but can accumulate stains over the years. Enamel can become thinner, and its porous nature allows stains to penetrate deeper into the structure of the teeth where routine cleaning cannot reach. Thinning enamel also allows the underlying yellow, brown or gray dentin to show through more clearly. Stains and discolorations are unattractive, and they can be aging. Before swearing off coffee or wine for the rest of your life, talk to our Northridge Zoom whitening expert.
Our expert in Zoom whitening in Northridge can use Zoom to whiten your teeth faster than ever before. Zoom allows us to whiten your smile up to eight shades in a single appointment. If you have stains from energy drinks, wine, soft drinks, coffee, berries, curries or tea, Zoom may be right for you. Zoom may also be right for you if you simply want a dazzling Hollywood smile.
We will begin by cleaning your teeth. Plaque and tartar can build up on your teeth and interfere with whitening. Removing it allows the whitening solution to penetrate deeply and evenly. Once your teeth are clean, the soft tissues of the mouth will be protected. Our Northridge Zoom whitening expert will paint on the special Zoom gel to each tooth for optimal coverage.
Zoom Whitening Northridge
When all your teeth are covered, the special Zoom light will be turned on. This light activates the powerful whitening ingredients in Zoom and sends them deep inside the teeth. Once there, stains that are located in the dentin and enamel will be broken up and bleached away. The Zoom process will be repeated about three times over the course of an hour after which your teeth will be dramatically whiter.
Not all patients are candidates for Zoom whitening. It may not be appropriate for patients with extensive visible restorations or for pregnant or lactating women. Our expert in Zoom whitening in Northridge can help you locate the best whitening solution for your needs, including Zoom whitening, take-home whitening or porcelain veneers.
