THE FASTEST METHOD
Laser Teeth Whitening
Laser teeth whitening allows us to whiten your teeth for as much as 8 shades in just one visit.
It's here! The new, revolutionary tooth whitening system that can erase years from your looks in a single 45 minute visit. At Tenafly Dental Associates, we are excited to help you achieve the smile you deserve. Zoom whitening, developed by Philips, is the #1 patient-requested professional whitening treatment, capable of safely brightening your teeth by up to eight shades. In fact, it's the #1 patient-requested professional whitening treatment, owing to even results, amazing convenience and minimal tooth sensitivity following the treatment.
The process starts with protecting the gums and lips so that only the teeth are exposed during the procedure. A bleaching gel is applied and lightened with a laser to speed up the whitening process. The results are beautifully white teeth.
Zoom whitening doesn't require trays, wearing strips for days or other hassles. The advanced gel gently penetrates the sub-micron pores of tooth enamel to break down stains and eliminate years of discoloration.
What causes yellow teeth?
Teeth stains can be caused by a variety of factors. Genes, your environment, or your medication can significantly alter the color of your teeth. The foods you eat or the beverages you drink can cause surface stains which penetrate the second layer of your teeth, also known as dentin. This darkens the overall appearance of your tooth due the translucent nature of the first layer, enamel. When this happens, the tooth turns yellow.
How long does the treatment last after zoom?
On average, it can last 1-2 years. This all depends on personal behavior and habits that restain your teeth.
How do I maintain my white teeth after the treatment?
48 hours after your in-office bleaching, we tell our patients to avoid any types of dark foods or drinks. For instance you should refrain from drinking wine, cola, and tea or eating dark foods such as cherry pie or soy sauce.
Is it safe?
This is a common question we get all the time. What better way to answer this question then to prove it with the following research article:
What if I have crowns?
Bleaching only whitens natural teeth! It can not change the color of any crowns, veneers, or composites you may have in your mouth.
