Zoom Teeth Whitening Fremont Cosmetic DentistryThe Zoom whitening products you find at a dentist office leave over-the-counter whitening solutions in the dust, no contest. That’s why patients need to see a dentist to get a Zoom whitening treatment. You might be skeptical of in-office systems, such as Zoom, but it has proven to be a fierce contender amongst other whitening products. Dr. Gayatri Sakhrani’s Fremont cosmetic dentistry office offers Zoom and Zoom 2 whitening systems. The benefits are crystal clear. Check it out below!

Fast Results

You don’t need to wait weeks to see a one or two shade difference. With Zoom 2, your Fremont dentist can tailor the application to your whitening needs. It’s simple and effective. The Zoom system promises visible results after one treatment, and it can give you a smile eight shades brighter!

Lower Sensitivity

Peroxide, a main ingredient in whitening products, has been known to cause tooth sensitivity. To decrease tooth sensitivity, there needs to be a desensitizing compound blocking the sensation that travels from the tooth’s surface to the nerve. The Zoom system utilizes potassium nitrate and Amorphous Calcium Phosphate (ACP) to desensitize teeth, so you can experience little to no discomfort during a whitening treatment.

Less Fade Back

It’s great when you see positive results, but sometimes it can be short-lived. Zoom 2 gives long-lasting results. If you get maintenance whitening here and there, your teeth will continue to look pearly white. It’s like working out. You might start to see the weight loss results, but you need to continue your workout regiment to ensure constant fitness.
Your Fremont dentist is the best resource to find out the steps you need to take for a whiter smile. What questions do you have regarding Zoom or Zoom 2? We have both readily available at Missions Hills Family Dentistry.

Did you know that severe tooth decay is America's #1 chronic childhood disease? Actress Brady Reiter didn't know either — until she became the star of the movie Tooth Fairy 2, and then joined forces with the National Children's Oral Health Foundation: America's ToothFairy®.

“Before, I didn't even realize what can happen to kids if they don't take care of their teeth,” 11-year-old Brady recently told Dear Doctor magazine, after viewing photos of children suffering from severe tooth decay. “There are kids in America who don't know that it's important, or they just don't have the resources to be able to take care of their teeth or to go to the dentist.”

This young Tooth Fairy knows just how magical — and vital to a child's self-esteem — a beautiful smile can be.

“When you feel bad about opening up your mouth and smiling, a kid's confidence just goes down the drain,” she said.

NCOHF recently tapped 11-year-old Brady to head the America's ToothFairy Kids Club, which offers kids personalized letters from the Tooth Fairy along with lots of encouraging oral health tips and fun activities — free!

“I'm really excited to be part of it,” Brady told Dear Doctor. “Kids learn how to take care of their of smile by joining this club. By supporting America's ToothFairy, we can help kids in need get dental care and have a healthy smile too. It's really amazing!”

While lots of kids get an occasional cavity, millions of children have tooth decay so severe that it interferes with their ability to eat, sleep, and concentrate in school. The good news is that tooth decay, a bacteria-induced infection, is preventable.

“When kids join the club, they learn how to prevent tooth decay. When families support this great cause, we can help kids in need. And that's what feels great — that we really can make kids' futures better.”

If you would like to enroll your child in the club — it's free! — please visit And to make sure your child's teeth and your own are decay-free and as healthy as possible, please contact us today to schedule your next appointment.

Are Baby Teeth important? Baby teeth may not last forever, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t extremely important. In fact, they are just as important to babies and kids as your adult teeth are to you! Here are five things every parent definitely needs to know about baby teeth. My Child is having speech issues could this be related to their teeth?

Losing certain teeth too early can make it difficult to correctly say some words and might cause long term problems down the road.Does it really matter if you get a cavity in a baby tooth?

Baby teeth are different from adult teeth in that the outer layer of the teeth (the enamel) is much thinner, and the layer just under that (dentin) is much softer. Because of this, cavities can eat through baby teeth surprisingly quickly. With regular dental checkups, little cavities can get filled before they grow into a gaping hole. Do cavities in baby teeth hurt as bad as adult cavities?

Cavities hurt at any age! For children with untreated cavities, there is a good chance their little mouths are in pain. This can make it hard to focus in school and may lead to them feeling upset or grumpy much of the time. Living with the nagging pain of a toothache is no fun at all, so get those tiny teeth looked at asap!Healthy baby teeth lead to healthy adult teeth, but they also do so much more. You can do your part by making sure your children brush after meals, floss daily, and see the dentist twice a year. And if you spot a cavity, get to the dentist right away! Every kid deserves to have a healthy, happy smile.
