Maintaining Zoom Whitening Results
In order to best preserve your Zoom results, patients will be given a Zoom whitening maintenance kit using customized whitening trays for at home use. Your dentist will explain when and how the kit should be used. Following the bleaching of your teeth, your teeth may be sensitive and temporarily more susceptible to staining. During this time it is highly recommended to avoid consuming staining foods and drink to avoid discoloration.
Products containing tobacco will stain teeth even following whitening treatments and so your dentist will advise you to quit the habit. Proper oral hygiene should also be maintained (regular brushing and flossing after meals) to hinder the formation of new stains as well as visiting your dentist for regular cleanings.
Remember, Zoom whitening will remove existing stains and leave your teeth looking whiter, it is not a permanent solution to tooth discoloration and will not prevent new stains from forming. Only the practice of proper oral hygiene can guarantee that stains and discoloration be kept at bay. Oral health products containing whitening agents such as toothpaste and rinses may be suggested by your dentist to aid in the preservation of your newly improved smile.
