Have you ever tried a drugstore whitening strip?

If you have, you’ve also had to try removing one- a challenge, right up there with picking a wet watermelon seed off of a kitchen floor, and of course- “the cinnamon challenge”.  It’s sticky, and seems to dissolve in the bed of bleach froth that accumulated after a recommended 30 minute session.  Placed incorrectly, the bleach can irritate gums— likely to happen, since these are a one-size-fits-all model, and not custom to the user. 

Have you ever used a tray— custom or otherwise- for teeth whitening?  I’m talking about either the overnight model, or the wear during the day model.  Have you?

If you have, you’ve likely found it uncomfortable to wear them overnight, and perhaps you’ve worn through a tray or two at night?  That’s a whole other issue, altogether… The daytime wear trays are a nuisance, in that you have to set aside time during the day to do it.  Do you have say-

30 minutes or more where you won’t have to speak with anyone and can walk around with a tray in your mouth, full of bleaching gel?  Oh- and by the way, you’ll need to do this for multiple treatments, on an ongoing basis throughout the year for maintenance.  The gel can also be quite costly.  Can you find them cheaply online?  Of course, but at what cost?  Are the materials or the solution balances safe for prolonged usage?  Would your dentist approve of them?  Have they been approved by the Canadian Dental Association, and other regulating bodies?  Probably not.  And again, they’re inconvenient, and they can be quite uncomfortable. 

Since you will want more immediate whitening results, and you’ll want to do it in as few sessions as possible, with the least amount of inconvenience or discomfort, I would suggest speak with your dentist or hygienist about Zoom. 

White teeth are attainable.  You don’t need to have to wear uncomfortable trays while you sleep, schedule time each day to wear trays, or have to peel away sticky strips from your burning gum line in order to have them.

Zoom Whitening is available at Urban Smiles.
