TEETH WHITENING


Everybody loves a bright, white smile. Depending on our everyday choices, though, we may not have the dazzling teeth that we’ve always wanted. Wine, smoking, coffee, and other foods and beverages can cause sparkling smiles to become dull and discolored over time. Even more, the aging process takes its toll on tooth luster, making us less confident. To restore brightness and help you get your most radiant smile, Resnick Premier Dentistry offers advanced Zoom! Professional Whitening System—a safe, effective and fast whitening treatment.


What to expect

Consultation:
 Your dental professional will perform an examination to verify you’re an ideal candidate for whitening.

  • Your dental professional will assess the shade of your teeth

  • Discuss whitening options

  • Discuss sensitivity prevention

  • Temporary tooth sensitivity, especially to cold, may occur during or after the whitening procedure. To prevent, your dental professional will prescribe the use of Sonicare Fluoridex desensitizer toothpaste for two weeks before the procedure.

  • If you are a good candidate for whitening, your dental professional will take impressions for your
    custom fabricated trays, which fit your teeth and your mouth, and allow you to safely whiten your teeth


Day of treatment:

  • Your dental professional will instruct you to take one ibuprofen an hour before procedure

  • To start the procedure, Vitamin E is applied to your lips, your gums are covered with a protective barrier, and your teeth are coated with Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed in-office whitening gel.

  • The WhiteSpeed lamp will then be positioned near your teeth to accelerate the whitening process

  • The procedure consists of up to four sessions, each lasting 15 minutes

  • For each session, the whitening gel will be replaced by a new coating

  • Your dental professional may adjust the lamp should you experience any sensitivity

  • At the end of the last session, your dental professional will give you the whitening gel that best suits your needs, your desired whitening results, your level of sensitivity and your lifestyle

  • You will receive fabricated trays customized to your mouth, which allow you to safely whiten your teeth by ensuring the whitening gel only has contact with your teeth and doesn’t touch your gums


Post-treatment:

  • All patients whiten differently and the time between whitening treatments will vary

  • If you consume beverages that stain teeth, such as coffee, tea or wine, or if you are a smoker, brushing with a Philips Sonicare DiamondClean power toothbrush will help reduce surface stains

  • Ask your dental professional about a Philips Zoom Touch-ups whitening kit
