Have you ever tried teeth whitening – either in a dental office or in-home treatments, such as whitening strips? If so, you’re probably aware that the process of achieving those beautiful white teeth doesn’t always come without some discomfort.
In fact, according to the ADA Council on Scientific Affairs, transient mild to moderate tooth sensitivity can occur in up to two-thirds of users during early stages of bleaching treatment. Sensitivity is generally related to the peroxide concentration of the material and the contact time; it is most likely the result of the easy passage of the peroxide through intact enamel and dentin via dentinal tubules to the pulp during a five- to 15-minute exposure interval.
Fortunately, at Miller Hill Dental, we’ve identified a solution!
Recently, our team had the pleasure of attending a presentation by Dr. Marty Zase, a legend in the dental community and past president of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. Dr.
Zase’s high-energy presentation was jam packed with clinical cases, technical tips and new products – one of which we’re very excited to introduce as a new offering at Miller Hill Dental.
The product? Zero Sensitivity Pre-Whitening Swabs.
A new advance in teeth whitening, Zero Sensitivity Pre-Whitening Swabs significantly reduce or eliminate tooth sensitivity caused by tooth bleaching. The product, which is applied to the teeth just prior to bleaching, utilizes a proprietary combination of a solvent, detergent and a surfactant to prevent the dehydration of teeth, which causes sensitivity. We are so excited to now offer this product to our patients, as whitening is one of the simplest and most rewardingprocedures to dramatically improve the appearance of a person’s teeth. And now a procedure that can be done without the pain!
