When a patient elects to make cosmetic improvements to their smile, the results can cause a confidence boost. One of the most common treatments to enhance the aesthetics of their appearance is teeth whitening.
At Smiles by Design, we offer Zoom!® teeth whitening in Grand Rapids. If you are interested in this popular procedure, call our office to set up an appointment.
Cosmetic Benefits of Teeth Whitening
Your enamel is the porcelain-like exterior that protects the inner part of the tooth. Over time, the enamel can become stained for a variety of reasons. Most commonly, dark colored foods and drinks, particularly coffee, tea, and wine have intense color pigments that attach to the enamel. Other factors that can dull the brightness of your smile include tobacco use, age, trauma, or taking certain medications, such as antihistamines.
With an array of options to choose from, whitening your teeth has never been so simple and efficient. Those seeking results for minor staining may benefit from over-the-counter products found at the local grocery store or pharmacy, while others may want a professional grade bleach to make a more significant impact.
Zoom! Teeth Whitening Options with Dr. Boone
Our office enjoys helping patients transform their smiles by offering teeth whitening as a cosmetic service. At Smiles by Design, we use Zoom! whitening systems for both in-office and take-home options. When a new patient comes in for an exam, they have the choice of a free take-home whitening kit, or if they prefer to leave the work to us, we can apply a discount for the chairside treatment.
Zoom! has become our preferred product because they’ve altered their formula to help decrease tooth sensitivity after application. For those who experience greater than normal levels of sensitivity, we have an additional desensitizing gel that creates a cooling effect after bleaching is complete.
The convenient, take-home Zoom! whitening kits grant a noticeably whiter smile in minimal time. We’ll fit you for the customized trays, and you can choose from the daytime or nighttime options, depending on your preference.
For in-office treatment, we combine the whitening gel with a powerful LED whitening lamp to accelerate results. Patients typically see their teeth whiten by up to seven shades. We typically spread this cosmetic procedure over four, fifteen-minute whitening sessions. For patients with significant staining, we can increase time or frequency for optimum results.
