Should You Whiten Your Teeth?

Before and after teeth whiteningZOOM! teeth whitening safely erases deep stains and discoloration from your smile in a single trip to our office. The concentrated gel is brushed on and accelerated with a bright light, oxidizing and lifting even the most tenacious problem spots.

The entire process takes just over an hour to complete, giving you full results in a single visit. But if you’re not sure whether to go ahead and book a ZOOM! whitening appointment, here are a few situations to keep in mind.

When There’s Upcoming Treatment

Do you need to crown a front tooth? Are you replacing an old filling in a part of your mouth that’s visible when you smile? Getting it planned straightaway means matching the material to the teeth around it. But at that point, you won’t be able to whiten your smile because ceramics don’t respond to bleaching products.

Instead, it’s best to whiten your teeth first, for at least a couple of weeks leading up to the first appointment. That way your smile is at its whitest and the new restorations can be made to match.

If you have a cavity, there’s always the option of getting a temporary filling first, whitening your teeth, then placing a permanent restoration to match.

If Your Smile is Healthy

Don’t whiten your teeth if you have active cavities, tooth sensitivity or gum disease. Active infection inside your mouth can lead to irritation that isn’t safe for your teeth and gums.

Before Other Cosmetic Procedures

Treatments like same-day ZOOM! whitening are a great smile makeover option on their own. If you’re on a budget, you might want to whiten your teeth to find out if that’s all you need to get the “look” you’re searching for.

Compared to other types of cosmetic treatments available, whitening is an affordable procedure that affects your entire smile at one time. If you’re hesitant to pursue other, more extensive solutions, then starting with ZOOM! whitening is a great option. You may not even need to plan for other aesthetic restorations.

In short, teeth whitening is usually the best first step for a smile over at any age.
