Teeth Whitening

When the sun shines in Las Vegas, so should your smile! Everyone wants a brighter smile. It’s a confidence booster and a sign of good health!

Too often, however, surface stains from dental neglect, coffee, wine and other sources can lead to yellowed or stained teeth. Some whitening treatments can be expensive while others are often ineffective.

That’s why the team of dental professionals at Smiles for Life Family Dentistry are offering the Spring Valley community a simple, cost-effective and fast way to get rid of pesky stains and score that perfect smile.

Allow us to Introduce You to Zoom Teeth Whitening by Philips!

Zoom Teeth Whitening is a modern, professional teeth whitening solution. It uses a proprietary combination of whitening gel and specialized LED lights to whiten teeth up to 8 shades brighter after only a few sessions. The process uses a solution of hydrogen peroxide that acts on the enamel and dentin of teeth to bleach them and make them more white.

What is the Process at Smiles for Life Family Dentistry?

Each process begins with a dental consultation at our office in Southwest Las Vegas, 89148. After an oral examination, if either Dr. Quinn or Dr. Mitchell agrees that Zoom Teeth Whitening is an appropriate solution, the procedure will be performed after a comprehensive and thorough cleaning.

Some of the factors that influence the decision to get the Zoom Teeth Whitening done include:

•Your lifestyle
•How often you consume beverages like coffee, cola or wine
•If you are a smoker
•Your age
•How often you brush and floss your teeth
•Your gum health
•The overall condition of your teeth
•Whether you have crowns or veneers on your teeth

The treatment consists of 3 to 4 sessions lasting about 15 minutes each. All sessions can be performed in a single day or spread over multiple visits. The number of visits depends on each individual case. The doctors will guide you on how many visits you might require after the oral examination. Tell the doctors about your goals and get a better idea from them about what to expect.

Let the doctors at Smiles for Life Family Dentistry know if you suffer from any allergies or have any ongoing medical conditions before the procedure. Also, let the doctors know if you are pregnant or breastfeeding as the treatment is not recommended during this time. The Philips Zoom Whitening procedure is not recommended for children below thirteen years of age.

Is the Treatment Easy?

The treatment itself is simple. Patients can sit back and relax as the doctor first covers your lips and gums and then applies the Zoom Teeth Whitening solution. After the solution has been applied, it is activated with the special LED lights. The activation of the solution helps to speed up the process and bleach the teeth. You can relax for the next fifteen minutes while the light acts on the solution.

Only the stains on the teeth get bleached while the rest of the tooth does not get affected in any way. The Philips Zoom Teeth Whitening process is extremely effective while being safe for teeth and gums. Inform the doctors if you feel any sensitivity or tingling and they will be able to help ease your discomfort.

However, patients are responsible for taking care of their teeth after the treatments. Our doctors will discuss options to help you maintain your new smile, including Philips Zoom DayWhite take-home whitening solutions and the Philips Zoom Whitening Pen. Make sure to follow the instructions carefully on how to use the products.

And of course, it’s important to avoid foods and drinks that stain teeth and to brush and floss regularly. Visiting your dentist once in six months for a regular cleanup will also help keep your teeth white and healthy.

And that’s it! Forget lengthy, painful treatment sessions. You’re just a few 15-minute sessions away from a brighter, more beautiful smile!

Helpful Tip

If you do suffer from sensitive teeth, keep some clove oil handy for after the procedure. If you experience any pain or discomfort, mix a few drops of clove oil in half a cup of water and rinse your mouth with the solution a few times. You will start to feel the relief almost instantly.
