Summer Smiles with Zoom Whitening
Summertime brings many reasons to smile. Maybe you have a wedding to go to, maybe you’re hosting a graduation party for your kids, or maybe you’re just hitting the beach to work on your tan.
Whatever the occasion, there’s sure to be lots of people to impress and lots of cameras out. But is your smile photo-worthy? With Zoom Whitening at All Smiles Jacksonville, we can have your smile looking like a million bucks for all the flashing cameras.
In today’s post, we’re going to look at several aspects of professional teeth whitening so you can decide if it’s right for you and your smile.
Are Your Teeth as White as They Could Be?
Numerous studies have linked oral health and appearance to self-esteem. A whiter smile can help you be more comfortable when socializing, taking notes in the classroom, or giving a presentation at work.
Maybe you find yourself frustrated because despite regular brushing and flossing, your teeth aren’t as white as you’d like them to be.
Surface stains on your teeth can be caused by a variety of factors. Some of these are genetic, some are caused by medicines you may be taking, but many are caused by lifestyle factors.
Who’s at risk for stained teeth? In short, everyone. But there are several lifestyle habits which greatly increase your risk for stains.
If you love unwinding with a glass of red wine at dinner or after work, you’re at risk for surface stains. Natural dyes and tannins in the wine can cling to your teeth, resulting in a stain.
If you’re powered through the day by a pot of coffee, or even just enjoy a cup here and there, you’re at risk for surface stains. Coffee also leaves tannins on your tooth enamel, the build-up of which will result in stains.
If you drink a lot of soda or cola with your meals or throughout the day, you’re at risk for stained teeth. Even clear and diet sodas contain a tremendous amount of acids which wear down your enamel and leave stains.
If you eat a lot of berries or other fresh fruits, you’re at risk for stained teeth. The rich natural dyes in the foods can leave stains. As a general rule, if it can stain your hands or your clothing, it can stain your teeth.
If you smoke cigarettes or cigars, you’re at risk for stained teeth. In addition to numerous other potential oral health risks, regular tobacco use leaves staining residue from nicotine and other chemicals on your teeth.
To be sure, good dental habits (and not smoking) can prevent a lot of stains on your teeth. But sometimes that’s simply not enough to have your smile looking its best. Fortunately, All Smiles Jacksonville has Zoom Whitening to ensure you can smile with confidence.
Why Zoom Whitening?
The shelves of your local pharmacies and grocery stores are stocked to the brim with products claiming to be the be all, end all for teeth whitening. Though some of these products can be effective, they have numerous drawbacks as well.
All these products contain bleaching agents and other chemicals. When used too frequently or improperly, these products can irritate your gums and teeth. This irritation can lead to tooth decay or even infection.
In life, there’s no substitute for professional guidance. You wouldn’t attempt optical surgery on yourself to fix blurred vision or astigmatism, and your gums and teeth are just as sensitive as your eyes.
At All Smiles Jacksonville, our top-notch team will assess your oral health to ensure it is safe for you to begin a teeth-whitening regimen and guide you through the process.
How Long Does it Take?
If you have a wedding coming up, or a graduation party on the horizon, we have great news for you. The team at All Smiles Jacksonville can whiten your teeth, up to eight shades, in just ONE visit!
An in-office professional teeth whitening visit only takes about one hour. After assessing your oral and dental health, our team will places trays of safe and effective whitening product in your mouth for three, fifteen minute periods. A patented Zoom light is then shined on your teeth to boost the whitening process.
If you’re not in as much of a hurry to have your teeth whitened, All Smiles Jacksonville also offers a take-home Zoom whitening system. Our top-notch team will talk with you to ensure this is the right option for you, as well as provided instructions for the product’s safe use.
