There’s a reason Zoom! Teeth Whitening is so popular. It’s safe, fast and brightens smiles up to eight shades in about an hour. Sounds pretty amazing right? After you’ve received your Zoom! Teeth Whitening treatment and your teeth have finally become the pearly white color of your dreams, the last thing you want is to stain them back to their original color.
If you get your teeth whitening treatment done at Water Tower Dental Care in Chicago, you won’t have to worry about your teeth staining for a while. We’ll instruct you on how to best keep your teeth sparkling white for years to come after Zoom!, and offer you an at-home whitening kit along with an electric toothbrush whitening package. Still, it’s good to understand what you’ll have to do to keep your teeth white even before you go in for the treatment. Let’s take a more detailed look at exactly how to keep your teeth white after Zoom!
How Does Zoom! Teeth Whitening Work?
Zoom! Teeth whitening can make your teeth seven to eight shades whiter after just one short appointment. It’s considered one of the safest and most effective cosmetic dental treatments in dentistry. So how does it work? First, your dentist applies a special pH-balanced hydrogen peroxide solution to the surface of your teeth. The solution is then activated with a special low-heat light. The gel exfoliates your teeth stains from the inside out, leaving them looking better than ever. The entire procedure is made up of three 15-minute treatments that involve applying the solution and then heating it up. It’s as easy as that!
How to Keep Your Teeth White For Years To Come After Zoom!
Now that you know how we whiten your teeth, it’s time to discuss the most important part for you: keeping your teeth white after Zoom! When you come into our Chicago offices, we’ll give you more detailed instructions on how to do this and provide you with the tools to do so. But here is a general overview on how to keep those stains away after your Zoom! Teeth Whitening treatment.
First, you’ll want to avoid consuming any food or drinks that can stain your teeth for 24 hours after your treatment, such as coffee, red wine, pasta sauce, and tea. Zoom! makes your teeth porous for up to 24 hours, which leaves your teeth more susceptible to staining.
If you don’t already, you’ll want to consider using 3D whitening mouthwash and toothpaste. Depending on which brand you get, the ingredients in 3D whitening toothpaste and mouthwash can loosen up stains so that they are easier to brush away. You should use this toothpaste and mouthwash as many times a day as the maker recommends, or at least twice a day.
At Water Tower Dental Care, we will offer you a take home whitening kit to maintain your results over a longer period of time. We’ve ensured that these kits are safe and effective, so that you’re getting the most bang for your buck. They are easy to use and you won’t have to use them too often. Just make sure to follow our instructions, because you can overdo it.
Finally, we can also send you home with an electric toothbrush whitening package with whitening strips, so that you can take care of your pearly whites daily. This package is specifically designed for keeping your teeth white. Just follow our instructions, and you should be set!
