Teeth whitening or bleaching has become one of the most commonly requested cosmetic dentistry procedures in the last ten years. Over time, food stains, aging and the effects of decay and certain medications can wreak havoc on a person’s smile. But teeth can be white again through the use of peroxide-based bleaching agents to remove stains and discoloration. There are two kinds of teeth whitening, at-home teeth whitening and in-office teeth whitening.

At-home Teeth Whitening

At-home teeth whitening refers to the use of products at home to whiten the teeth such as whitening strips, gels, toothpastes, and tray-based tooth bleaching systems. This kind of tooth whitening is done by the patient at home and most products can just be bought over the counter at pharmacies and grocery stores.

In-office Teeth Whitening

In-office teeth whitening refers to professional whitening treatment done in the dental clinic and is administered and supervised by a dentist. Compared with at-home whitening, this is safer and more effective since the bleaching solution used is stronger than those used in at-home whitening kits and every stage of the procedure is facilitated by an experienced dentist.

What is Zoom! Teeth Whitening?

Zoom! is one of the most requested whitening brands among dental patients. It lightens the discoloration of the enamel and dentin by using a 25% hydrogen peroxide gel that is activated by an advanced power chairside lamp. This lamp uses UV light to activate and speed up the bleaching process. With just an hour or two, your teeth can get up to six to ten shades whiter with Zoom! Teeth Whitening!

This brand of bleaching system thus allows faster and more effective result that’s why it has been featured many times in different modelling and makeover shows. Now you can have your own makeover through Zoom! Teeth Whitening by just visiting For You Dental in Dallas, TX.
