Among the external factors that affect the tone of the teeth, tobacco and drinks such as coffee, wine, soft drinks stand out. Another external factor can be affected by age and the passage of time. The teeth are gradually staining from the natural or artificial colorants that are found in our day-to-day food.

    In our dental clinic we use a methodology with an alternative appliance to the traditional laser, which is characterized by being less intense than the usual ones. With the Phillips Zoom lamp, whitening is accelerated thanks to the use of LED lights, being less aggressive than other techniques to avoid causing tooth sensitivity in patients. The main advantage is that as it is not so intense, it will not damage your tooth sensitivity, and it will take several sessions to complete it, although you will see results from the first day of treatment.

    During the treatment it is advisable to avoid the consumption of tobacco, coffee or tea and drinks and cola soft drinks. Also avoid eating artichokes, spinach and foods that contain coloring such as saffron.

    By ingesting these substances during the treatment the total bleaching result is diminished as it can produce additional stains.

WHAT IS TOOTH WHITENING?

In the aesthetics sector, teeth whitening is the treatment that is responsible for reducing the original color of the teeth by several tones, leaving the teeth whiter and brighter.

With teeth whitening, it is possible to eliminate the stains produced in the pieces due to substances such as tea, coffee, and other infusions, cigarettes, red wine and alcoholic beverages, and even sugary foods. It is true that not all stains can be eliminated or reduced through teeth whitening and may need other types of aesthetic treatments such as porcelain dental veneers.

In Asensio Odontología Avanzada, we offer you the tooth whitening technique with the most spectacular results on the market. It is a modern, fast, and effective procedure for whitening darkened and stained teeth.

The whitening process takes approximately one hour and the patient can see the results from the first session, thanks to our innovative appliances and advanced laser equipment such as Phillips Zoom. In addition, our team of specialized dentists gives special recommendations to allow you to keep perfect, white, and shiny dental hygiene from your home. The treatment can be repeated every six months or year, depending on the spots or pigmentation present.

It is important and necessary to have a professional dental cleaning with a laser before getting the Zoom whitening session at our dental clinic in valencia. We are one of the few clinics in Valencia that have the latest generation technology to apply it.

How is the whitening process with Phillips Zoom in dental clinic Asensio ?

It is an alternative whitening to laser, less intense than the usual ones, where lasers are not used to accelerate the whitening effect of a concentrated gel. It is a state-of-the-art whitening lamp that speeds up the process and is less aggressive than other techniques with which you will hardly experience any tooth sensitivity.

In this process, 35% hydrogen peroxide bleaching is activated. As hydrogen peroxide breaks down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin to whiten stained substances, without changing the structure of the tooth.

The Phillips Zoom working method is practically identical to that of the laser technologies but with the additional use of LED lights to speed up the process.

The main advantage is that it is less intense, thereby not affecting your tooth sensitivity. Moreover, it will take several sessions to complete it, although you will see results from the first day of treatment.

It must be borne in mind that whitening has no effect on any type of restorations such as amalgams and restorations made with halogen light (resins or white fillings, inlays and crowns, or bridges).

Step by step with Phillips Zoom

The treatment lasts less than an hour and you will get results from the first session. The frequently used procedure in Asensio Advanced Dentistry is divided into the following steps:

  1. The patient’s lips and gums are covered with a gingival protector or barrier to expose the teeth for subsequent work on.
  2. The whitening specialist applies Zoom hydrogen peroxide whitening gel on the teeth and then with a personalized mouthpiece for each patient, we bring the lamp closer to their mouth, which together with the light from the Phillips Zoom lamp works to penetrate the tooth and disintegrate stains and discoloration.
  3. The gel is allowed to act for 15 minutes together with the Phillips Zoom LED light.
  4. During this time, the patient can enjoy a movie with our latest generation 3D glasses, in a relaxing and enjoyable experience.
  5. Four cycles of photoactivation are carried out in the clinic. The session is divided into four 15-minute sessions, where the same process is repeated four times with the zoom light activated to achieve an effective whitening effect.
  6. Once the four sessions of 15 minutes each have finished, a gel-paste with fluoride is applied to the teeth to reduce tooth sensitivity.

PLACEMENT AND USE OF SNAP-ON SMILE

What is Snap-on Smile?

Snap-on smile is a dental aesthetic treatment that is characterized by being removable. It is made up of a very thin and resistant resin case that is totally customized to fit your mouth, as well as being resistant. It is placed over the teeth to change their shape and appearance on a temporary basis and can be removed and inserted anytime you need it.

This technique modifies the appearance of the smile immediately and is very useful in situations in which you need to show off your smile in public, whether at events, talks, conferences … It is also one of the most requested and definitive solutions to replace missing teeth while we are placing dental implants or the person is undergoing any other dental treatment. With this treatment, the tooth structure is not altered; it simply fits in and out of the natural teeth of the patient because it is totally reversible. At Asensio Advanced Dentistry, we recommend Snap-on Smile to enjoy your smile temporarily or permanently, as it is the perfect aesthetic solution.

Snap-on Smile procedure

The procedure is virtually painless. In the first consultation, the dentist makes an impression of the teeth, without anesthesia, which is sent directly to the laboratory. The mold is filled with plaster and then digitized in 3D on a computer.

After this process, the mold is designed with its respective corrections in a digital program and then sent to a 3D printer. The impression is obtained and is taken to a plaster mold, called a muffle, to be injected at high pressures into its material and final color. Finally, the plaster mold is removed for final adjustments and polishing.

In the second consultation, the prosthesis is placed on the patient, and on some occasions, adjustments will be made outside the mouth if necessary.
