Teeth Whitening Q & A
Why is Phillips Zoom so effective?
Dr. Saeghi has been practicing dentistry for more than 25 years. He knows that patients appreciate quick and convenient treatments that keep their smiles looking their best. Whitening your teeth doesn’t have to involve a lot of time or money. It can be part of your regular beauty routine - like coloring your hair or getting your nails done. Simple and easy.
Of all of the treatments, he has tried, Dr. Saeghi finds Zoom in-office teeth whitening the easiest and most effective product available. Zoom is great for patients short on time because it requires no mixing and the application is uncomplicated. Zoom also offers the only FDA-approved product to manage sensitivity after treatment.
After Zoom teeth whitening, Dr. Saeghi offers professional-quality whitening products you can use at home to revive your smile between office visits.
How does professional teeth whitening work?
Chairside teeth whitening is a straightforward process with no pain or discomfort. After a brief oral exam and discussion about any sensitivity issues you may have, Dr. Saeghi color shade matches your teeth with your desired results.
Dr. Saeghi begins by inserting a cheek retractor, bite block, and cotton into your mouth to isolate your teeth and protect the surrounding tissue. Whitening gel is then applied in cycles with short breaks in between. Modern Age Dentistry staff members make sure you are comfortable and relaxed throughout the entire procedure.
If you experience any sensitivity after the whitening gel is removed, Dr. Saeghi applies gel to relieve it. After that is removed, you are all set! We recommend you do not eat or drink for 30 minutes after in-office whitening.
How can I keep my smile its whitest?
Your smile is an investment. It is important to take the time to keep it looking bright long after you leave the dentist. After a professional whitening treatment, there are a few simple things you can do to keep your smile white.
- Use a whitening toothpaste. Dr. Saeghi will recommend a product that is effective and safe for you to use after treatment.
- Rinse with water after eating and drinking foods that stain like coffee, red wine, and tomato sauce.
- Use a straw to sip to reduce the contact dark liquids have with your teeth.
- Stop smoking. Besides the obvious health reasons encouraging you to quit - smoking stains your teeth.
