If you’re about to brighten your smile with Zoom whitening treatment in Leesburg, Virginia, our Lansdowne Dental Arts team is happy to tell you what you can expect during your appointment! Our team believes that if you know how the treatment works, you will feel more comfortable, relaxed, and safe in the dental chair. So, when you come into our office, you can expect the following steps:

Step 1: Our dental team will guide you through our office to a comfortable dental chair. When you are ready, your dentist will cover your gums and lips to protect them from the whitening solution. This is important because the solution can easily harm the oral tissues.

Step 2: When your lips and gums are covered, your dentist will paint the whitening solution onto the front surfaces of your teeth.

Step 3: Your dentist will then activate the whitening solution with a special light. The light will make the solution penetrate into the teeth and break up the discoloration and stains.

Step 4: You will need to activate the solution for 15 minutes. Then, when the time is up, you will need to repeat the process. Generally, the treatment will involve three 15-minute sessions, which will total out to be 45 minutes. When the treatment is completed, your dentist will place desensitizing fluoride gel onto your teeth to help you prevent tooth sensitivity.
