The most popular cosmetic dentistry procedure in our Las Vegas office is tooth whitening. Nevada Dental Esthetics offers a couple of different options for tooth whitening, but the one we recommend most is the ZOOM! Tooth Whitening system.
If your smile isn’t as white and bright as you would like it to be, ZOOM! may be the perfect solution for you. Learn more by calling 702-737-3553 today for a free consultation with Dr. Jorge Paez.
Dr. Paez and his staff use the ZOOM! whitening system because it is quick, easy and highly effective. Compared with other cosmetic dentistry procedures, it is relatively inexpensive.
In fact, Dr. Paez treats patients from all over the world because ZOOM! is much less expensive here than in other countries. Some come to see him in Las Vegas just to get their teeth whitened, while others are in Vegas for fun or business and decide to see Dr. Paez while they are in town. Whatever the reason, they all leave with beautifully white smiles!
What to Expect from ZOOM!
You will arrive at our office for your treatment and leave about an hour and half later with a considerably brighter and whiter smile! While the measurements are not an exact science, you can look forward to your teeth being six to ten shades lighter.
The Zoom! Tooth Whitening system uses a high-intensity, light-activated hydrogen peroxide gel to whiten your teeth. The treatment itself takes an hour, with an additional 20 to 30 minutes spent on getting set up beforehand, and on checking your teeth afterwards.
Steps to a whiter smile include:
- Preparation: Dr. Paez will put a blocking substance on your lips, gums and other soft tissues to protect them from the whitening light. We will also provide you with protective eye goggles.
- Whitening: During three 20-minute sessions, the whitening gel will be placed on your teeth and the light will shine on it. During that time you can listen to music or just rest.
- Follow-up: A five-minute fluoride treatment will conclude the session. Dr. Paez will then give you a follow-up kit to take home. You can use this to further whiten you teeth if possible, or keep it for touch-ups later on.
ZOOM! provides you with immediate, long-lasting results without harming the enamel. With good dental hygiene, your new bright smile can last for many years.
Using Take-Home Kits
Dr. Paez will be happy to give you a professional-grade at-home kit if you would prefer to do the tooth whitening in your own time. First he would take an impression of your teeth, and have two trays made, upper and lower. They will fit your teeth exactly, and therefore keep the whitening gel in consistently close contact with your tooth enamel.
Your kit will contain several syringes of whitening gel of a strength you and he agree on as being most appropriate. Some people have extra-sensitive teeth and would not want the strongest whitening gel. The kit also will contain a syringe or tube of desensitizing gel, in case you do feel some sensitivity as you do this treatment. There’ll be a shade strip so you can assess your progress.
Dr. Paez will explain how to use the kit. You can call if you have any questions, and after your treatment, you could schedule a visit so Dr. Paez can assess your progress.
