How In-Office Teeth Whitening Works

Dental Whitening Many patients who are looking for a dentist in West Hollywood come to Dr. Farahmand wanting to learn how they can brighten their smile. A major concern is if the procedure is uncomfortable and / or lengthy. The good news is that OF Dental Care uses the Zoom 2 System, a system that not only is safe and comfortable but produces spectacular results in as little as 45 minutes.

The first thing that Dr. Farahmand does is to ensure that the patient is a suitable candidate for the procedure. Once that is determined, the patient is prepared to receive the treatment by donning some specially made glasses to protect the eyes and a mouthpiece to hold the lips back for proper exposure. Next, the dental technician will prepare the mouth with a special treatment to protect the gums during the teeth whitening process. The teeth themselves receive a coating of gel which is used as the reactive agent in the procedure.

Once everything is set, the Zoom 2 System is used. An extremely high power UV light is brought up next to the teeth causing the gel to release a high concentration of oxygen which removes stains both on the surface of the tooth and its deeper layers. During this time, the patient is able to relax comfortably without any unpleasant sensations. In a given session, the gel is applied up to 3 times in 15-minute intervals in order to maximize the whitening effect once the procedure is complete, the difference is definitely noticeable. Most patients achieve 8 to 12 shades of improvement after just one treatment.
