Unfortunately, a fact of life is that your teeth will lose their brightness over time. Through habits, lifestyle choices, or just aging, your once dazzling smile can lose its shine. Thankfully, Dr. Dhavalkumar Rana provides ZOOM!® teeth whitening at TrueCare Dentistry. This fast, strong, and safe in-office whitening treatment can remove stains and discoloration that have been taking away from the beauty of your smile. Keep reading to learn everything you need to know about ZOOM! teeth whitening in Mesquite.
Stains and discoloration in your smile can occur for a variety of reasons. Whether it’s aging, routine coffee or wine drinking, smoking, use of tobacco products, or eating a lot of foods rich in color, your diet and lifestyle can directly affect the color of your teeth.
In addition to these common causes, poor oral healthcare can lead to stains in your smile. Without routinely removing plaque and tartar that buildup, your teeth are susceptible to staining and yellowing from bacteria.
If you’ve already been dealing with stains and discoloration, you may be familiar with the lack-luster results that over-the-counter whitening products produce. That’s why Dr. Rana offers ZOOM! in-office teeth whitening. Professional whitening solution can reach stains beneath the surface of your enamel, where other whitening products simply can’t.
With in-office treatment, our cosmetic dentist in Mesquite will apply strong and safe whitening solution to your teeth. Dr. Rana can deliver fast and effective results because he will use a special activation lamp to speed up and strengthen the whitening gel. This allows the gel to penetrate the surface of your enamel to leave you with a bright and shining grin.
If you prefer whitening your teeth in the comfort of your own home, Dr. Rana can provide you with a ZOOM! whitening at-home kit. With this treatment, he will give you custom-made whitening trays to wear as instructed. Typically, the best time to whiten for patients is at night, so after using your at-home kit at night for a few weeks, you’ll start to see beautifully white results. With both at-home and in-office whitening, you’ll be receiving customized treatments to fit your smile. This ensures that your mouth isn’t getting irritated by bleaching solution from poor fitting whitening trays.
The lifetime of your newly whitened teeth will depend on how well you take care of them. Most patients see that their whitening lasts around 3 to 6 months. This time can be lengthened or shortened based on your lifestyle choices and oral healthcare. Practice routine brushing and flossing, limit your wine and coffee drinking, and avoid tobacco products for the longest lasting results.
