If you’re interested in brightening your smile with Zoom whitening in Springfield, Virginia, but you’re not sure what to expect with the treatment, our Northern Virginia Dental Associates team is more than happy to help you!

Zoom whitening is a beneficial treatment that can lighten your smile in just one single visit. It’s an easy and painless process that involves you sitting in a comfortable dental chair and watching television or listening to music. When you come into our office, you can expect the following steps of treatment:

Step 1: After our friendly dental team guides you to the comfortable dental chair, your dentist will cover your lips and gums to protect them from the solution. If the solution touches your oral tissues, they could be harmed.

Step 2: When your mouth is fully prepared for the treatment, your dentist will paint the whitening solution onto the front surfaces of your teeth.

Step 3: Once your teeth are covered with the solution, your dentist will activate the gel with a special light. The light will make the solution penetrate into the teeth and break up the stains and discoloration.

Step 4: After 15 minutes have passed, your dentist will clean your smile and then start the process again. The appointment will consist of three 15-minute sessions that will total out to be 45 minutes. Then, he will apply a sensitivity-reducing fluoride gel to the teeth to help you avoid any discomfort.
