Zoom whitening in Charlotte, North Carolina, is a beneficial treatment that can give you the smile results you’re looking for in just one appointment! However, some people get intimidated or nervous about the new, high-tech equipment we use at Derek C. Barnes, DMD, and if you could be considered as one of these people, Dr. Derek C. Barnes and our team are more than happy to help you by explaining the treatment. The treatment is simple and easy. When you come into our office, you can expect the following steps:

Step 1: Our welcoming dental team will guide you through our warm office to your comfortable dental chair. Then, your dentist will cover your lips and gums to protect them from the whitening solution.

Step 2: When your oral tissues are fully covered, your dentist will paint the whitening solution onto the front surfaces of your teeth.

Step 3: Once the solution is properly placed, your dentist will activate the solution with a special light. The light will make the solution penetrate into the teeth to break up the stains and discoloration. This should take about 15 minutes.

Step 4: The appointment should include three 15-minute sessions, which will total out to be 45 minutes. Once the treatment is completed, your dentist will place a desensitizing fluoride gel over the teeth to help relieve any discomfort you might feel after treatment.

If you would like to know more about Zoom whitening or if you have questions about the treatment, please feel free to call 704-849-6700 and talk to your dentist or a member of our dental team. We are more than happy to help you finally achieve the bright, brilliant smile you deserve!
