Teeth Whitening in Less Than One Hour!
Perhaps one of the most popular services that our dental office provides is teeth whitening. It is very hard to remove stains and discoloration caused by regular coffee or tea drinking. However, at Bedford Dental Group, we have restored countless smiles to their original brilliance through the Zoom! Whitening System.
At Bedford Dental Group, we have had the opportunity to meet the dental needs of many A-list stars and we are happy to extend our experience and superior services to the greater Los Angeles community as well. Our whitening treatment is one of the fastest and most popular services offered at our office because it takes about the same amount of time as a routine checkup. We are proud to offer Beverly Hills teeth whitening to help every resident smile like a celebrity.
The Zoom! Teeth Whitening Process
This whitening system takes less than one hour to create permanent results. There is no need to re-whiten your teeth regularly after the process. While some patients may experience some sensitivity during the whitening process, our procedure is relatively painless.
The procedure begins with the application of a whitening gel on the teeth that consists of 25% hydrogen peroxide. Our Zoom! lamp then activates the hydrogen peroxide in the gel, and the whitening process begins almost immediately. This process can only be done on individuals over the age of 13 who are not pregnant.
How to Care for Your Teeth after Whitening
In order to ensure long-lasting results, there are recommended steps that you can take. First, a home-use kit for touch ups can provide follow up tools to extend the effects of the Zoom! whitening system. Additionally, it is important to avoid certain foods, beverages, and products that are known to cause stains, or at least use moderation.
The following should be consumed in moderation after whitening:
- Dark sodas
- Red wines
- Tobacco products
- Deeply-colored sauces
Furthermore, standard oral care including brushing and flossing as well as regular teeth cleanings and check-ups can help to avoid staining. It is also recommended that you use toothpastes with whitening agents in your daily oral hygiene regimen to help maintain your pearly whites.
