Types of Teeth Whitening Procedures
Getting that perfect, white, and beautiful smile is not hard nowadays. There are actually a lot of teeth whitening options one can choose from and you can even tailor fit it to your budget. The difference would be in the length of time you need to wait and continue your treatment before you actually see results.
If you have more patience and time to devote to your whitening treatment, there are over-the-counter whitening trays and gels you can buy at your local pharmacy or grocery. You just need to wear the trays overnight for about 2 weeks or as recommended on the product details and observe your teeth for the results.
However, if you’re pressed for time and want to see instant results, you can always go to your trusted Lincroft dental clinic and ask your dental professional about in-office teeth whitening. If you go for this option, you may encounter two types of professional whitening procedures: Zoom Teeth Whitening and KöR deep bleaching.
Zoom Teeth Whitening
Zoom is a fast and safe way of getting whiter teeth through the use of a concentrated hydrogen peroxide solution. Hydrogen peroxide is the active ingredient responsible for stripping off stains and yellowish color on the teeth’s enamel layer.
Your Lincroft dentist applies the gel and lets it stay for about 15-20 minutes. After the initial application, you may already see a whiter, brighter shade of your teeth and depending on the results you want, your dentist can repeat the application a few more times.
KöR Deep Bleaching
KöR deep bleaching takes a bit more effort than Zoom whitening, but it can also bring more significant results. Based on studies and dentists accounts, KöR deep bleaching can actually lighten your teeth up to twice their natural shade.
During your first visit at your Lincroft dental clinic, your dentist will take impressions of your teeth in order to create a custom-fitted whitening tray. This is then followed by 2-3 weeks of continuously using the tray and bleaching solution until your final in-office whitening session.
