Enhanced Zoom!® Whitening System in Virginia Beach
One of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures is teeth whitening or bleaching, because people want their teeth to have a brighter and more attractive smile. Teeth whitening systems remove stains from inside the teeth to restore their natural color. It is one of the safest and easiest ways of improving the look of teeth.
Of course, there are many options for whitening teeth, and each one offers its own advantages and disadvantages. Zoom!® Whitening is a popular teeth whitening system used throughout the country to improve smile aesthetics.
An initial consultation with Dr. Wernick will help discover if the Zoom! process is the best approach. As effective as this whitening process has proven to be, there are some conditions that may defer the diagnosis to not include teeth whitening as an effective cosmetic treatment. If this does occur, Wernick Family Dental will help the patient explore other cosmetic avenues.
Wernick Family Dental offers Zoom!® and more!
Wernick Family Dentistry has always focused their dental service towards customer care and works to improve standard services to enhance the patient’s experience. After testing the Zoom! Teeth whitening procedure on staff and a select number of patients, Dr. Wernick added his personal touch to the process.
One of the drawbacks to any teeth whitening system is that some patients may experience discomfort due to the ‘bleaching’ dehydrating the targeted teeth. Rather than potentially sending patients away with possible teeth sensitivities, Dr. Wernick will give patients a special toothpaste two weeks prior to treatment. This toothpaste will work to rehydrate the teeth before the dehydration process begins. It is a preventative measure to decrease or potentially erase sensitivities.
Another change made by Wernick Family Dentistry was to change the curing light to a LED light with three shade options, the newest updated strategy by Phillips (creators of Zoom!). The LED light doesn't heat up as quickly as the original curing light creating a more gentle approach to teeth whitening.
When the procedure is complete, patients are treated with a complimentary Fluoride treatment 15 minutes after the process is complete. This will help rehydrate the targeted teeth and decrease the chance of tooth sensitivity.
The Zoom! Product is one of the leading whitening systems because of its results. Dr. Wernick has witnessed patients tooth enamel improve 6-8 shades in one visit. He has treated many patients who have tried at-home kits without good results, only lingering pain. It is always best to get a professional opinion before trying something at home.
