The allure of a radiant, camera-ready smile is undeniable, and one of the fastest routes to achieving this is through the Zoom Whitening Procedure. This revolutionary treatment, offered by us at Broadway Smiles, has become a go-to choice for many of our Vancouver-based patients. But what happens after you’ve achieved that picture-perfect smile? How do you maintain those dazzling results? Let’s shine a light on these questions in today’s discussion.
Understanding Zoom Whitening
Zoom Whitening is a highly efficient, in-office teeth whitening method. The procedure involves the use of a 25% hydrogen peroxide gel, which is activated by the Zoom Advanced Power Chairside Lamp. This activation process allows oxygen byproducts to enter the enamel and dentin, bleaching away stains and discolouration while preserving the structure of your teeth.
Maintaining Your Bright Smile Post-Procedure
While Zoom Whitening can dramatically brighten your smile in a short time, maintaining these results requires consistent and thoughtful aftercare. Here are some key tips to keep your smile sparkling after your Zoom Whitening procedure:
Mind Your Diet: Certain food and drink can stain your newly whitened teeth. For the first 48 hours after the procedure, avoid deeply colored consumables like coffee, tea, red wine, soda, berries, and sauces. This period is critical as your teeth are most susceptible to staining during this time.
Keep Up with Oral Hygiene: Regular brushing, flossing, and rinsing with an antiseptic mouthwash can help maintain your teeth’s whiteness. Using a whitening toothpaste once a week can further extend the effects of your Zoom Whitening procedure.
No Smoking: Tobacco can quickly stain teeth, diminishing the effects of your Zoom Whitening treatment. If you’re a smoker, consider quitting or reducing your tobacco use to keep your teeth white.
Regular Touch-ups: Depending on your lifestyle and eating habits, your dentist might recommend at-home touch-ups with custom-fitted trays and whitening gel.
Routine Dental Cleanings: Regular professional cleanings at Broadway Smiles can help to remove surface stains and plaque, keeping your teeth bright and healthy.
Stay Hydrated: Drinking plenty of water not only keeps you hydrated but also helps to wash away food particles and prevent stains.
Use a Straw: When you do consume darker beverages, using a straw can help to keep staining liquids away from the surfaces of your teeth.
Ask our team at Broadway Smiles to get you a custom-made bleaching tray that you can use at home with special whitening syringes for touch-ups.
