Bright teeth are a hallmark of a beautiful smile, making you appear younger and more vibrant. A professional teeth whitening treatment is great for any occasion, and especially so when you have a special event on the calendar.
If you have an upcoming wedding, anniversary, or other event to attend, you will want to look your best. Dr. Thomas Tang offers in-office Zoom!® teeth whitening at his Brookfield, WI practice. Read on to learn the benefits of teeth whitening before special events.
Why Undergo Teeth Whitening Before an Event?
White teeth are connected with health, beauty, and youth. By whitening discolored or stained teeth, you can look healthier, younger, and more attractive. In doing so, you will likely feel more confident and more willing to share your smile with others.
If you have an upcoming special event, you can expect many photographs to be taken. There are fewer ways to improve your smile for the camera and have quality photos of yourself as good keepsakes than with a professional teeth whitening treatment.
The Benefits of Zoom! Teeth Whitening
There are plenty of teeth whitening options available today. Among all of your options, the professional Zoom! teeth whitening system stands out for:
- Providing immediately visible results

- Tailoring the intensity of the treatment to meet patient preferences
- Being a quick, 45-minute treatment
- Producing minimal tooth sensitivity
- Providing lasting results
The Zoom! Whitening Procedure
A Zoom! treatment begins with the dentist covering the lips and gums, exposing only tooth enamel. Next, a professional-grade whitening gel comprising of hydrogen peroxide is carefully applied to the teeth.
To activate the bleaching agents in the gel, a specialized light is applied to the teeth. This gel and light application is performed two more times, with about a 15-minute wait between sessions. When the treatment is complete, you will notice that your teeth are much brighter.
Maintaining a Bright Smile
While the Zoom! system is designed to be long-lasting, your teeth can become discolored or stained. This is largely due to smoking or what you consume. An effective way to avoid tooth discoloration is by minimizing how often you drink dark-colored drinks, like coffee, tea, and red wine. It is also a good idea to stay away from foods that cause dental stains, such as berries, tomato sauce, and soy sauce.
If you do consume these drinks and foods, try brushing your teeth shortly afterwards. This removes the stain-causing drink and food particles from your teeth, reducing their impact on the color of your enamel.
Another recommendation is to drink dark-colored beverages through a straw to minimize contact with the teeth.
