Let Your Smile Shine Bright with Professional Teeth Whitening

Let Your Smile Shine Bright with Professional Teeth Whitening

It’s amazing how a beautiful smile can completely transform your attitude. If yours could use a little help, it doesn’t get easier than professional teeth whitening treatments.

The Dental Touch team in Oakland, California, offers the most trusted bleaching treatments available, whether you want to get dramatic results in one office visit or on your own schedule at home.

Do you want your smile to shine bright? Here’s how our Philips Zoom!® in-office and at-home whitening treatments can help.

Why it’s time to Zoom!

It’s tempting to grab an over-the-counter option when you’re looking to whiten your smile. However, working with your dentist offers more reliable, safer solutions with stronger professional bleach formulas, so you know you’ll get the results you crave before you even begin. And it all starts with a dental exam.

Professional teeth whitening can provide dramatic results. However, not all forms of discoloration respond to bleaching. So, if your teeth have lost their luster from medication, too much fluoride, or trauma, professional whitening may not be the best option. Instead, we can make other recommendations to improve their appearance, like concealing bleach-resistant imperfections with veneers.

If you’re a good candidate for Zoom! professional whitening, we talk through your overall goals and preferred level of whitening. Then it’s time to discuss how quickly you want to see results.

Getting whiter, brighter teeth in a single visit

If you would need results fast, look no further than Zoom! in-office treatments. This approach can whiten your smile up to eight shades, and it takes less than 45 minutes.

To whiten your teeth, we fit a protective rubber dam over your gums and lips before placing a snug retainer over your teeth. This retainer contains Zoom!’s whitening formula that breaks down the pigments on your teeth causing the discoloration.

Finally, we kickstart the whitening formula with the Zoom! Advanced Power Chairside Lamp. Exposing the whitening solution to the special light does two things. First, it activates the hydrogen peroxide whitening solution so it can bleach stubborn stains deep inside your tooth. It also accelerates the bleaching process.

As a result, you can get the brighter smile of your dreams in one visit.

Getting whiter, brighter teeth on your own schedule

Zoom!’s take-home whitening kits provide the same results as in-office treatments, but they take a few weeks instead of a single application. However, it comes into convenient options so you can brighten your teeth when it’s most convenient to you: Philips Zoom! DayWhite and Philips Zoom! NiteWhite.

Both options use custom bleaching trays that fit your teeth and gumline. However, as you may have guessed by their names, you use one for 30-90 minutes during the day and the other for a few hours at night or while you sleep.

Whether you use Zoom! DayWhite or Philips Zoom! NiteWhite, you can expect your smile to shine brighter within two weeks of daily use.
