Which Teeth Whitening Method Is Best for Me?

Teeth whitening has become as much a part of oral health these days as a six-month check-up. And why not? Having a brilliant smile isn’t just for celebrities. It’s much more affordable than it used to be. Plus there’s a whole slew of options to brighten up those pearly whites after too much merlot or coffee has left them yellowed.

Walk down the oral care aisle of any big box store, and you’re hit with more teeth whitening products than you can count. There are toothpaste, oral rinses, whitening strips, trays of miracle gels, and even charcoal and coconut oil that promise your teeth will be several shades whiter in no time.

How do you know what works? Teeth whitening products can be costly, and if they don’t do the job, you’re basically flushing your money down the drain.

Another problem with the DIY teeth whitening products is inconsistency in the degree of whitening. And some products contain a strong hydrogen peroxide solution which can irritate your gums and cause tooth sensitivity. That’s why you should always check with your dentist before utilizing an at-home teeth whitening treatment.

If you don’t have a lot of time to commit

The best option for boosting the dazzle in your smile is an in-office teeth whitening treatment from your dentist. At our office, Dr. Bloom offers Zoom in-office teeth whitening. This method only takes about an hour from start to finish, and the results are amazing. One treatment can whiten your teeth by up to eight shades.

For those with sensitive teeth and gums

When you opt for in-office professional teeth whitening, your treatment is performed by an expert with knowledge of safety protocols. Your gums are protected with a special sealant, and Dr. Bloom understands the degree of sensitivity you experience and can make the necessary adjustments.

When you purchase a DIY, at-home teeth whitening method, you can easily and unintentionally misuse the product, which can result in damage to your teeth or gums. Why take the risk? Your teeth and gums are safe with the Zoom in-office procedure administered by a professional.

Zoom professional teeth whitening method lasts longer

The Zoom teeth whitening method administered in our office can last up to 18 months, with proper care. You’ll be instructed on maintenance practices and given an at-home kit for keeping your new smile brilliant. Because professional teeth whitening uses an advanced formula to bleach your teeth, you won’t have to skip your morning coffee in order to preserve your smile. (Although you won’t want to overdo it.)

A teeth whitening method with proven results

Whiter teeth can erase years from your appearance and give you the confidence to face the world, come what may. If you have a big event coming up, or if you simply want to look your best, whitening your teeth is a confidence booster. And you’ll get the best results with our Zoom professional teeth whitening method.
