There are many over-the-counter teeth whitening products on the market today, from bleaching strips to toothpastes to whitening kits, but the results from these products can vary widely. Many patients find they don't get the desired results from these over-the-counter solutions, and in some cases they can even damage your teeth.
If you are interested in a safe and effective long-term solution for stained or yellowed teeth, Anchorage dentist Dr. Dominic Wenzell has a solution that will really get you smiling—Zoom at-home whitening kits. These kits combine custom-crafted whitening trays with a professional-strength gel to give you fast results with the convenience of an at-home whitening system that you can use on your own schedule.
Why Use Zoom?
If you're less than pleased with the color of your teeth, the safest way to get good results is to whiten your teeth under your dentist's supervision. Many over-the-counter whitening solutions have formulations that can irritate sensitive teeth or gums, even while providing less-than-stellar results. Whitening toothpastes often use micro-abrasives in their formulations, which can damage or even remove layers of the protective enamel that keeps your teeth healthy and strong.
With the Zoom at-home whitening kits we offer at Turnagain Dental, whitening is achieved using a safe and effective bleaching gel that will not damage your teeth. We can monitor your progress and adjust the length and frequency of your whitening sessions as needed to achieve quicker results or combat tooth sensitivity.
How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
Unlike over-the-counter kits that use one-size-fits-all trays, or at best boil-and-bite trays, Dr. Wenzell and his staff will take an impression of your teeth to create customized bleaching trays just for you. These trays offer added comfort and help to minimize leakage of the bleaching gel into your mouth.
We will instruct you in the use of your bleaching trays during your visit to our Anchorage dental office. Some formulations require only minutes a day, and some can even be done overnight while you sleep.
Use your whitening kit as instructed each day. You may see results in just a few days! Once your teeth have reached the desired whiteness, you may discontinue use of your Zoom whitening kit. Keep your custom dental trays in a safe place, as they can be re-used for touch-ups over time. Our office will help you choose the proper whitening gel and frequency of touch-ups to maintain your beautiful, white smile for years to come.
