If you are looking for a brighter smile, it might be tempting to go for the convenience of getting an over-the-counter whitening gel from your local pharmacy. But the results from those options tend to be minimal, and they can take weeks or even months to show any results. An in-office whitening procedure performed by our expert in Zoom whitening in Beverly Hills takes less than an hour to complete, and you will notice the results immediately. Many people suffer anxiety over seeing the dentist, so as with any other dental procedure, patients coming in for a teeth whitening often ask if it is painful.
Our expert begins the process by giving you a standard dental cleaning. There is a short amount of prep time so that the lips and gums can be covered so that only the teeth are exposed. A hydrogen peroxide whitening gel is applied to the teeth, and then a special Zoom light is shone on the teeth, which breaks apart the stains.
Temporary tooth sensitivity may occur in some patients, but it should be minimal. And the Zoom light does produce a small amount of heat, which can be a source of discomfort. If you experience any of these side effects, ask your dentist for the proper remedy. Zoom whitening is not recommended for children under the age of 13, pregnant women, and lactating mothers.
