Most of us start out with sparkling white teeth, thanks to their porcelain-like enamel surface. Composed of microscopic crystalline rods, tooth enamel is designed to protect the teeth from the effects of chewing, gnashing, trauma and acid attacks caused by sugar. But over the years enamel is worn down, becoming more transparent and permitting the yellow color of dentin – the tooth's core material – to show through.
During routine chewing, dentin remains intact while millions of micro-cracks occur in the enamel. It is these cracks, as well as the spaces between the crystalline enamel rods, that gradually fill up with stains and debris. As a result, the teeth eventually develop a dull, lackluster appearance.
Teeth whitening removes the stains and debris, leaving the enamel cracks open and exposed. Some of the cracks are quickly re-mineralized by saliva, while others are filled up again with organic debris.
Teeth whitening is one of the easiest and most gratifying techniques available today. We treat our patients with in-office whitening and take-home kits depending on the current status of the teeth and desired outcome. The in-office procedure is safe and produces immediate results, with the possibility of getting up to 10 shades lighter.
Zoom is a whitening procedure performed under the supervision of a Dr. Heidari and Dr. Moradi. Home treatments are sometimes effective, but when it comes to dental care, being under the care of a professional is the safest and most reliable option.
If you do not have a lot of time or are uncomfortable at the dentist office then Zoom may be right for you. We can accomplish your Zoom teeth whitening treatment on your lunch hour. In addition, there is far less heat in the Zoom procedure than in typical tooth whitening treatments, and there is less chance of accidental ingestion of the whitening product.
