Cosmetic Dentist in Connecticut Discusses Benefits of Zoom!® Teeth Whitening

FAIRFIELD, CT--(Marketwire - Aug 15, 2012) - According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, virtually all Americans (99.7%) believe a healthy, white smile is an important social asset. Professional teeth whitening procedures are an effective way to help improve smiles by reducing signs of teeth discoloration and aging. There are a variety of options for teeth whitening, but Zoom!® in-office whitening treatment is the number one patient-requested teeth whitening brand. More than four million people have brighter and healthier smiles due to the innovative treatment that uses state-of-the-art technology. Dr. James Diette and his Connecticut cosmetic dentistry practice offer Zoom!® in-office teeth whitening to help patients reach their goal of achieving a beautiful smile. Using advanced technology, he says patients can say goodbye to stained and discolored teeth after just a single one-hour treatment.

Zoom!® teeth whitening is a fast and affordable method to brighten smiles with long-lasting results. Dr. Diette says the treatment is convenient because patients can achieve a whiter smile after just a short period of time and the results can be much more effective than over-the-counter options. The procedure is particularly beneficial for patients who do not want to deal with the inconvenience of repetitive and cumbersome at-home whitening treatments. In terms of precautions for the treatment, Dr. Diette stresses the importance of making sure patients have proper oral health in order to achieve the most effective results. During each consultation, he conducts a comprehensive dental exam to determine if teeth whitening with Zoom!® can be the most beneficial treatment for the patient. The procedure has the ability to improve the appearance of yellowing and staining caused by:

  • Consumption of coffee, wine, and tea
  • The use of tobacco products
  • The natural process of aging
  • The use of certain medications
  • Poor dental hygiene

During the procedure, a whitening gel is applied to the teeth, which is activated by an advanced low-intensity lamp to accelerate the whitening process. The gel will remain on the teeth for three 15-minute sessions with light activation. To finalize the treatment, a fluoride paste is applied to the teeth to reduce sensitivity. After the process is completed, patients can expect their teeth to be up to 10 shades whiter. To maintain the results from the whitening treatment, patients are given a touch-up kit to use at home, containing customized whitening trays.

As a cosmetic dentist in Connecticut, Dr. Diette strives to help his patients achieve a brighter smile with the most effective results. He believes dental care should be a collaborative effort between the patient and dentist and he dedicates time to discussing every patient's individual dental needs. By getting to know his patients, he can offer the most appropriate procedures to provide the best results, and ensure they leave his office with a healthy, white smile and improved self-confidence.
