How to Care For Your Teeth after a Zoom! Treatment

Posted on August 11th, 2012 by Dr. Nikoo Daftary

Once you undergo teeth whitening with the Zoom! treatment system, you’ll be thrilled with the brighter, whiter, and more youthful smile you have. However, it’s important to take the right steps to maintain the results you’ve gained with Zoom!
Zoom Laser Teeth Whitening

Be Mindful During The First 48 Hours

For the first 48 hours after your Zoom! whitening treatment, be sure to avoid foods and beverages known to cause staining . During the first 48 hours, your newly whitened teeth are most at risk for re-staining. Some foods and drinks to avoid include: red wine, coffee, tea, cola, berries, soy sauce, ketchup, mustard, and red sauces. If possible, you should also avoid smoking or using tobacco products.
If you just can’t go without a daily glass of iced tea or cola, you can use a straw. A straw allows you to enjoy your favorite drinks by limiting contact with your enamel. If you eat or drink stain-causing foods and beverages, follow up with a good rinse or brush to help prevent staining.

Remember Thorough At-Home Care

At home, it is important to follow excellent oral hygiene practices. Brush and floss at least twice daily. Also, consider using an electric toothbrush for the best results. Regular dental cleanings offer another wonderful way to help control staining.
You can also maintain your results by using at-home whitening treatments recommended by your dentist. You may return to your dentist for whitening touch-ups as needed.

I was a little hesitant to come here after reading some reviews on Yelp but decided to give it a try after being reassured by Millie (who is really sweet and pleasant) over the phone, and I'm really happy I did. The office is beautiful, modern, and clean, something that really makes a difference for me going to the dentist. They were very prompt, I didn't have
to wait long to see the dentist.

I was blown away by the warm energy that radiated from the staff. They made sure that I understood everything and knew what the cost would be before we moved forward. Each person took the time to sit with me and explain the process. These people clearly love their job, their co-workers, and have a passion for assisting their clients with their dental health.
