Am I a Good Candidate FOR TEETH WHITENING?
Just about anyone can get teeth whitening, as long as your mouth is free of serious oral health issues like gum disease and cavities. However, you will want to tell Dr. Huh if you have sensitive teeth. He will need to adjust your treatment accordingly to minimize your discomfort since teeth whitening can cause some minor tooth sensitivity. That’s why is so important to get initial examination and teeth cleaning in Collingswood NJ before you consider teeth whitening.
In-office whitening is done by Dr. Huh or our Hygienist. He or hygienist will clean your teeth, apply a peroxide whitener, then activate it with a UV light all while you relax. This process may be repeated several times to reach your desired level of brightness. You can usually whiten your teeth by 5-10 shades in one appointment.
You’ll come to our office to have molds taken of your teeth, which will be used to make a set of custom whitening trays. Once these trays have been built, you’ll come back to pick them up, and you’ll also get whitening instructions and a set of whitening products from Dr. Huh Simply follow your instructions to whiten your teeth at home, and enjoy professional results without spending time in the dentist’s chair.
What to Expect After Treatment
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
The only common side effect of professional teeth whitening treatment is tooth sensitivity. This happens because your enamel is weakened slightly by the chemicals used to whiten your teeth. All you need to do is continue brushing your teeth regularly using fluoride toothpaste. This will help strengthen your teeth and eliminate sensitivity within a few days, in most cases. You can also use an anti-sensitivity toothpaste (Sensodyne) to help with post-treatment sensitivity.
HOW DO I KEEP MY TEETH WHITE?
First, make sure to brush and floss properly, and to see Dr. Huh for a cleaning every six months. This helps reduce the buildup of surface stains. You may also want to reduce your consumption of staining beverages like coffee, tea, cola, wine, and energy/sports drinks, or drink them with a straw. Using a straw minimizes contact with the teeth and can help prevent stains.
In addition to this, you can use a peroxide-based whitening toothpaste and mouthwash to help prevent stain buildup. We also offer touch-up treatments at your Austin dentist, which will help you keep your smile bright.
WHAT IS ZOOM TEETH WHITENING?
Zoom is a brand of teeth whitening products that are manufactured and sold by Philips, a leading dental technology company. It’s sold only to professionals, and provides exceptional results with minimal sensitivity.
The key to how Zoom works is in the ingredients. Zoom whitening gel contains a high concentration of hydrogen peroxide, which is a powerful whitening compound. But it also contains ACP (Amorphous Calcium Phosphate), as well as several other special ingredients. These ingredients help protect and strengthen your teeth during the whitening process, and reduce post-whitening sensitivity.
If you choose in-office treatment at Rapha Dental, Zoom teeth whitening also uses a special blue LED technology developed by Philips. Dr. Huh will shine this light on your teeth after he applies the Zoom gel. The blue light excites the whitener in the gel, “activating” it and boosting its whitening power. With Zoom, you can whiten your smile by up to eight shades in a single appointment.

How Does Zoom Teeth Whitening Work? Understanding The Procedure
First, you need to get initial examination and teeth cleaning in Collingswood NJ. Once that’s done and you are a good candidate, we can start the whitening!
The entire Zoom teeth whitening procedure typically takes about an hour. Before your appointment with Dr. Huh begins, one of our dental team members will clean and polish your teeth. Getting a teeth cleaning before your Zoom whitening treatment ensures that the Zoom whitening gel can be applied to your teeth evenly.
Next, Dr. Huh will apply a protectant to your gums and lips. This ensures that any whitening gel that comes into contact with them won’t cause any discomfort. Then, he will place cheek retractors into your mouth. This makes it easier to apply the whitening gel to your teeth. After your mouth has been prepared, he will apply a layer of Zoom whitening gel to your teeth.
Once your teeth are thoroughly coated with whitener, he will shine a Zoom blue LED whitening lamp on your teeth. The light activates the peroxide in the whitening gel, dramatically boosting its effectiveness.
After about 15 minutes, we will rinse the whitener off of your teeth. Then, if necessary, Dr. Huh and our team will repeat this process up to three times, or until your teeth have reached their ideal brightness. As a final step, Dr. Huh will apply a fluoride varnish to your teeth, which helps reduce sensitivity. He will also give you some instructions on how to care for your newly-whitened smile, then send you home to enjoy your bright new grin.
