Longview area dentist explains Zoom whitening
A whiter, brighter smile is often the goal of many patients. Dr. Clint Bruyere and his team in Longview provide patients with professional-grade treatments only available at the dentist. His practice offers whitening with the Zoom technique.
Zoom whitening is a popular choice for patients who want to quickly and easily whiten their smile. This particular method of treatment is done in the dental chair and takes approximately two hours.
Zoom whitening starts with a physical examination. Dr. Clint Bruyere will determine if patients are appropriate candidates for this particular treatment. Patients with restorations are not ideal candidates as restorations such as crowns, bridges, and veneers will not be affected by the whitening solution and may stand out after treatment is completed. However, patients serious about whitening their smile for good may want to discuss the possibility of replacing these restorations to match their brighter smile.
After patients have decided Zoom whitening is right for them, they must then undergo a thorough cleaning of their teeth. A professional cleaning is done to remove plaque and tartar which may keep the whitening treatment from being as effective as possible. This is done by one of the dental hygienists at Dr. Clint Bruyere’s practice.
Once the teeth are clean, they are prepared for the whitening service. This includes barrier gel applied to the gums to protect them during the treatment. Then, whitening gel is applied to the surfaces of the teeth, and a special whitening light is applied to the mouth and left for a specific period of time. When completed, the gels are removed from the teeth, and the teeth are cleaned one last time to show off the final results.
Zoom whitening is a great way for patients to quickly and affordably repair their smile when staining and discoloration have occurred over the course of time. Many patients enjoy having the treatment done before certain social situations such as reunions or weddings so they can look their absolute best!
Dr. Clint Bruyere is proud to offer Longview area patients Zoom whitening for dramatic whitening results that far surpass those achieved by over-the-counter products.
