Teeth whitening is a type of cosmetic dentistry. It’s used to remove stains from the surface of your teeth. There are many whitening systems on the market, but VaraniSmile uses Philips Zoom!
Philips Zoom! whitens your teeth with a hydrogen peroxide gel. When your VaraniSmile provider applies the gel to your teeth, it oxidizes the molecules within, making your enamel appear whiter and more vibrant.
Most people experience tooth discoloration due to the natural aging process. Years of biting and chewing cause your enamel to wear down, revealing the yellow dentin underneath.
You might also develop tooth stains as a result of:
Your commitment to oral hygiene also plays a role. It’s possible to minimize stains and discoloration by brushing and flossing daily.
At VaraniSmile, teeth whitening takes a single appointment that lasts 45-60 minutes.
Before whitening your teeth, your VaraniSmile provider covers your gums and tongue with a protective rubber dam. Then, they carefully apply the Zoom! Whitening gel to each of your teeth. After the gel rests for 15-20 minutes, your provider uses a special light to trigger a whitening reaction.
The light causes the gel to oxidize the molecules in your tooth enamel, transforming the appearance of your smile. Your provider repeats the same steps several times until you’re happy with the results.
The results of teeth whitening with Philips Zoom! aren’t permanent, but it’s possible to maintain them for 4-6* months and sometimes even longer. VaraniSmile recommends:
If you notice stains starting to build up on your teeth again, then it’s time to request a follow-up appointment at VaraniSmile.
