One of the easiest ways to improve the appearance of your smile is by whitening your teeth. While there are countless over-the-counter products available, none of them work as well as professional whitening products. And of all the professional whitening products available, one of the most effective is Zoom! Dr. Parma is pleased to offer both Zoom! in-office whitening and take-home whitening kits to his patients from throughout the San Antonio, TX, area.
Top Reasons to Visit Rick J. Parma for Teeth Whitening
Dr. Parma has helped thousands of patients with teeth whitening over the years. In fact, we were one of the first dental offices in San Antonio to begin using whitening gels. You may be tempted to try an over-the-counter product for whitening, but it’s important to remember that these kits don’t work nearly as well as professional whitening products available from Dr. Parma. We offer both in-office Zoom! whitening — which produces the fastest and most dramatic results — as well as take-home kits that are less expensive and more convenient for some busy patients.
What You Need to Know about Teeth Whitening
The Zoom! teeth whitening procedure involves applying a 25% hydrogen peroxide whitening solution to the patient’s teeth, then having the patient sit under a specially designed chairside lamp for 15 minutes at a time. This is usually repeated twice, so the whole procedure takes less than an hour. For patients who prefer to whiten on their own at home, we provide custom-fitted dental trays and solution so they can perform their own whitening procedure at their convenience.
Important Reminders about Teeth Whitening
Whitening solutions only work on your natural teeth, so that means that dental material used in crowns, fillings, veneers, etc. won’t be effected by the solution. In some cases, you may want to have some of the dental appliances replaced after your teeth are whitened. If your teeth are sensitive, having them whitened might temporarily increase that sensitivity.
