Comparison Report: How At-Home Whitening Compares to ZOOM
- Posted on: Feb 28 2017
Walking down the toothpaste aisle at the grocery store can feel like one of two things 1.) Like you’d rather be staring at an aisle full of cookies, or 2.) Like you’ve just hit the tooth whitening jackpot. With over-the-counter teeth whitening products like whitening strips, pens, toothpaste, and mouthwashes, it’s safe to say that your local grocery store carries enough tooth whitening options to fill a Uhaul truck. But are these whitening products giving you the results that they claim? Would you be better off getting an in-office whitening treatment, like ZOOM, from Dr. Paul Peterson’s office? This article will discuss how at-home whitening treatments stack against ZOOM. Read on to learn more.
The good news about at-home whitening treatments is that you are going to see some results— even if they are really small. Containing a small amount of hydrogen peroxide, over-the-counter whitening kits help to rid your teeth of small surface stains caused by things like coffee, tobacco, and tea. However, nothing is going to get you white results quite like ZOOM. In fact, you can get teeth that are 8 shades lighter in just one, one-hour treatment session (queue the applause).
As mentioned above, at-home whitening kits, strips, gels, and toothpaste contain small doses of hydrogen peroxide that work to rid your teeth of tiny surface stains. ZOOM, however, uses a much more concentrated dose of hydrogen peroxide to coat your teeth. Once your teeth have been coated, the ZOOM! the light will be used to help penetrate your teeth, leaving you with a distinctly brighter smile.
If you have ever used a whitening toothpaste, you know that the next day your teeth can become tinged a darker shade after you drink a cup of coffee– leaving you feeling like teeth whitening is your new part-time job. With ZOOM technology, your teeth will stay visibly whiter, no matter how often you drink coffee or tea. By following basic dental hygiene and getting touch-ups, your teeth will continue to look brighter than ever.
Getting bright, white teeth are safe, easy, and effective with ZOOM. If you would like to learn more about this whitening procedure, contact Dr. Paul Peterson today!
