Teeth Whitening in Hendersonville
When was the last time that you actually saw a picture of yourself? Did you happen to find yourself cringing at how yellow or dull your teeth looked?
Although it may be bothersome, it’s completely natural for teeth to darken and yellow as we age. Drinking coffee, tea, wine, and even soda can exacerbate, or worsen, the problem. Smoking can also cause moderate to severe staining of your tooth enamel. But luckily, Zoom Teeth Whitening can be an excellent solution to this very frustrating problem.

Here at Hendersonville Family Dental, Phillips’ Zoom Teeth Whitening is a cosmetic procedure that our patients are raving about. Continue reading below to find out how it stacks up against the competition and the different types of results that you can see.
What is Zoom Teeth Whitening?
Zoom Teeth Whitening uses a state-of-the-art form of blue LED light. It can lighten the staining, or discoloration, of your tooth enamel up to 8-shades. Our In-Office Whitening is a simple, non-invasive procedure that normally takes about two hours, with the last hour split up into four, fifteen-minute intervals.
The process combines a special LED lamp, usually referred to as a Zoom light, with a hydrogen peroxide-based whitening gel, while the added Amorphous Calcium Phosphate (ACP) helps deliver enamel protection, improve luster and drastically reduce sensitivity. Using both of these products in unison, the dentist or assistant will “bleach” your teeth and produce a brighter, whiter smile by the end of your treatment.
How it Works
A high concentration of hydrogen peroxide with ACP is used in the gel that covers your teeth. When the peroxide comes into contact with the intense blue LED light emitted from the lamp, the compounds start to break down. It then dissolves a very thin layer over top of your enamel and releases oxygen into your teeth. The oxygen then helps to flush out and get rid of any tooth discoloration, or staining, that has set in.
You can think of it like you’re giving your teeth a chemical bath. Another added bonus is that Zoom whitening will not affect the physical structure of your teeth. Zoom is definitely the best, low-risk procedure out of all the other teeth whitening options out there.
