San Clemente, CA (PressExposure) April 29, 2013 -- Orange County, CA family dentists Drs. Eric Johnson and Thomas Risbrudt have implemented several changes in their office during 2013. As Spring approaches, they have added another tool in their tooth whitening arsenal; the Zoom! Whitening System.
"We are continually testing the latest technologies in search of better ways to help our patients," Dr. Eric Johnson says. "This year, we've added the Zoom! Whitening System by Philips. We believe the addition of Zoom! will allow us to help more patients achieve whiter teeth and a more attractive smile."
What is Zoom!?
Zoom! is a powerful tooth whitening system developed by Philips and is made available only through dental professionals. It has been used by over 10 million patients and shown to be effective in most cases. Some of the benefits of Zoom! include:
Teeth 7-10 shades whiter after 45 minute treatment
Teeth stay white longer - up to a year or more in some cases
Process can be tailored to fit the needs of the patient
Minimal side effects
There is one common side effect with nearly all whitening systems; potential tooth and gum sensitivity. But Drs. Johnson and Risbrudt believe that most patients can still benefit from this system.
"Not everyone is an ideal candidate for Zoom!," Dr. Johnson continues. "If you have overly sensitive teeth and/or gums, this system may not be the way to go. However, the majority of patients struggling with faded and/or yellow teeth will likely see quite positive results from this powerful whitening process."
There are others whose teeth are so badly stained that even a powerful whitening system like Zoom! will not help them. In these rare cases, Dr. Johnson suggests a more advanced treatment like porcelain veneers.
"Porcelain veneers are one of our specialties, and we have vast expertise in this area. In the rare instance we have a patient that wants whiter teeth but cannot be helped by Zoom!, then porcelain veneers may be the best solution."
With Summer just around the corner, Drs. Johnson and Risbrudt are encouraging patients interested in brightening their teeth to come in now, so they can show off their smile during the warm months while on vacation or at the beach.
