CUPERTINO, Calif., Dec. 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Individuals looking for a whiter, brighter smile this holiday season may benefit from Zoom teeth whitening, a popular cosmetic dentistry service. Zoom whitening, which has been proven to lighten teeth up to eight shades, is the leader in professional teeth whitening treatment options.
Years of development have gone into creating the current version of the Philips Zoom whitening technique which is offered by LaFrom Dentistry in Cupertino, CA. Over 10 million patients, including many in the greater San Francisco Bay Area, have benefited from teeth whitening. Professionally delivered, the Zoom whitening procedure offers a quick, single visit treatment to whiten your smile! LaFrom Dentistry, located in Silicon Valley, has been offering whitening options to their patients for nearly 30 years.
"Zoom teeth whitening is incredibly popular with our busy patients who are looking for a fast, safe, effective whitening solution," said Dr. Randall LaFrom.
Clinical studies show that whitening teeth with hydrogen peroxide or carbamide under the supervision of dental professionals is safe for teeth and gums. The Zoom whitening kits for home whitening trays or for ongoing maintenance contain two mild desensitizing agents, potassium nitrate and Amorphous Calcium Phosphate (ACP). These two ingredients minimize tooth sensitivity while helping to protect the enamel.
Professional whitening with custom-fit trays and dental supervision avoids many of the pitfalls associated with over-the-counter whitening kits, according to Dr. LaFrom. While some over-the-counter kits are a great option for minor appearance enhancement most the trays are either too bulky or too flimsy to allow an even contact of the whitening gel on the teeth. The result can be blotchy or sensitive areas from these types of options. He also warned that over-the-counter kits lack the bleaching power necessary to remove tough stains caused by tobacco, red wine, coffee, tea and other highly colored foods and drinks that are associated with teeth discoloration.
With the in-office Zoom whitening, teeth typically show significantly whiter shades in about an hour. This is especially great for individuals with hectic schedules who may find it difficult to be diligent about wearing the custom trays regularly for several days to achieve similar results, says Dr. LaFrom.
"We caution our patients about boutique kiosks at the malls where they offer teeth whitening without dentist supervision. Those often use ineffective lamps to catch impulse purchasers for discounted attempts to whiten teeth. They can't take the time to properly protect the gums nor use long enough times with the proper concentration of gel to provide desired results. We've investigated both types of products and have found the Zoom in-office whitening produces the best results patients are looking for during the busy holiday season," said Dr. LaFrom.
