5 Reasons to Consider Professional Teeth Whitening

5 Reasons to Consider Professional Teeth Whitening

Who doesn’t love cutting corners or saving time in the hustle and bustle of everyday life? While it’s always tempting, one area you shouldn’t skimp on involves your teeth, especially with whitening.

When it comes to transforming your smile, nothing beats teeth whitening. After all, it only involves whitening solutions designed to tackle stubborn stains and discoloration. However, that doesn’t mean you’ll get as much bang for your buck or the results you crave with over-the-counter options you can pick up at the drugstore.

Our experts offer professional Philips Zoom!® teeth whitening solutions at The Dental Touch in Oakland, California. Whether you want to say goodbye to stains in our office or the privacy of your own home, here are five reasons you should consider professional whitening. 

1. Stronger, safer whitening solution

There’s a reason why professional whitening provides such great results, and it all comes down to stronger whitening solutions with higher concentrations of bleaching agents. These formulas break down tooth stains on a molecular level and have the power to penetrate the most difficult stains.

2. Predictable and proven brightening

More than 10 million people have trusted their smile to Zoom. Unlike over-the-counter solutions, it can whiten your teeth by up to eight shades, so you can get the results you want without any surprises. If you ask us, that’s something worth smiling about.

3. Faster results

If you want brighter, whiter teeth fast, look no further than professional whitening with Zoom. Our in-office treatments provide results within 45 minutes. You can even get noticeable results with the new Zoom QuickPro whitening option — it whitens up to four shades in only 30 minutes!

You can also get results fast with professional Zoom in-home treatments. Simply wear yours as directed for noticeable results within 1-2 weeks.

4. Personalized treatment

Professional teeth whitening means personalized treatment. Our dentists work closely with you to identify the best Zoom treatment option based on your overall goals and day-to-day schedule. For example, if you need results immediately, in-office bleaching could be your best option. 

However, if you’d prefer something extra gentle, our Zoom in-home solutions can whiten and brighten with little to no sensitivity at all. Plus, you can do it when it’s most convenient for you, whether it’s for 30 minutes each day or overnight.

5. Dental supervision

Finally, the other advantage of professional teeth whitening is expert supervision. The entire process starts with a thorough dental examination to confirm that your teeth and gums are healthy enough for bleaching. 

During our exam, we also verify that your teeth will respond to bleaching treatments. That’s because teeth whitening works best with yellowish stains, but not necessarily with those appearing more brown or gray. But rest easy; if you aren’t a good candidate for professional whitening, we can recommend other cosmetic treatments, like veneers, to help you get the dazzling smile of your dreams.
