Top 10 Facts About Teeth Whitening.

   Teeth whitening, also known as teeth bleaching, has become extremely popular over the last several years. It’s a great way to improve your appearance, it’s reasonably priced, non-surgical and non-invasive.

     As with everything else, teeth whitening isn't perfect and it isn't for everyone. Before you decide to have your teeth whitened, you should talk with your dentist. Your dentist can determine if you are a good candidate for teeth whitening. Knowing the facts can help you with your decision also:

  • Teeth Whitening Fact #1

                 Teeth whitening procedures are not covered by most dental insurance plans.

  • Teeth Whitening Fact #2

         Tooth colored fillings, crowns, bridges and veneers will not lighten when your teeth are bleached.

  • Teeth Whitening Fact #3

         Teeth whitening toothpastes can make your teeth appear a little lighter by removing stains, but they do not actually bleach your teeth.

  • Teeth Whitening Fact #4

         Teeth whitening does not produce the same results on all types of teeth discoloration. Someone with yellow tinted teeth would probably have great results with bleaching, while someone with gray tinted teeth might be disappointed because gray tinted teeth don't bleach as well.

  • Teeth Whitening Fact #5

    Tooth sensitivity and gum irritation are common side effects of teeth whitening treatments.

  • Teeth Whitening Fact #6

         If you have any cavities, they should be filled before you have your teeth whitened.

  • Teeth Whitening Fact #7

         Teeth whitening kits from the dentist produce faster results because they contain a stronger peroxide bleaching agent than whitening kits purchased over the counter.

  • Teeth Whitening Fact #8

         Touch ups are usually needed to maintain your desired shade, depending upon habits such as smoking, drinking coffee and tea and eating certain foods which will stain your teeth.

  • Teeth Whitening Fact #9

         People with gum disease shouldn't get their teeth whitened.

  • Teeth Whitening Fact #10

         It's a good idea to have a dental cleaning prior to having your teeth whitened to remove surface stains.


     ZOOM! 2™ Tooth Whitening.

         ZOOM! 2™ Tooth Whitening is the latest, most effective in-office tooth whitening procedure available. Our cliinic in Los Algodones, B.C.  area, cosmetic dentists specialize in teeth whitening with the ZOOM! 2™ Tooth Whitening procedure.

         With ZOOM! 2™ Tooth Whitening, our patients see results almost immediately. Unlike other teeth whitening procedures, with ZOOM! 2™ Tooth Whitening, teeth are typically six to 10 shades lighter in one short office visit. After the ZOOM! 2™ Tooth Whitening procedure, our patients receive an easy to use teeth whitening touch-up kit that they can use at home to retouch their teeth whenever stains begin to reappear.

         With ZOOM! 2™ Tooth Whitening and use of the home teeth whitening touch-up kit offered at our offices, your beautiful white teeth can last indefinitely.

    How ZOOM! 2™ Tooth Whitening works

         This very safe teeth whitening procedure is easily performed in our  offices. The ZOOM! 2™ Tooth Whitening gel is applied to the enamel (the protective coating) of the tooth and heated with a special lamp. The heat breaks down the gel and releases oxygen into the teeth’s dentin (the main, hard part of the tooth). This oxygen bleaches the teeth without harming them.

         After the ZOOM! 2™ Tooth Whitening treatment, our patients are given a fluoride treatment. The results of this tooth whitening procedure are whiter teeth that are fundamentally free of coffee, tea, soft drink, wine, or tobacco stains!

    Candidates for ZOOM! 2™ Tooth Whitening

         Most of our ZOOM! 2™ Tooth Whitening patients  experience no ill effects during this teeth whitening process. However, ZOOM! 2™ Tooth Whitening is not for everyone. Women who are nursing or pregnant should not use this teeth whitening method. People who are sensitive to light should not undergo the ZOOM! 2™ Tooth Whitening procedure. ZOOM! 2™ Tooth Whitening is not for patients involved in photo-chemotherapy or diagnosed with melanoma. Patients taking over-the-counter or prescription light sensitive medications should talk to their doctors before using the ZOOM! 2™ Tooth Whitening system.
