Stephanie Kinsey, DDS, owner and founder of Palencia Dental, has announced a Valentine’s Day gift giving idea for individuals considering teeth whitening treatments offering the popular technique Zoom!®.

According to Dr. Kinsey, having a beautiful smile with whiter, brighter teeth is a goal many people want to achieve. “Advanced cosmetic dentistry includes professional teeth whitening options for patients to reduce yellowing, discoloration, and stains with teeth that can look more youthful and healthy,” said Dr. Kinsey. She says one of the most popular professional teeth whitening techniques offers advantages for patients with the Zoom procedure as an option that may be more ideal than others.

Dr. Kinsey says Zoom teeth whitening is available for patients with mild-to-moderate stains and teeth discoloration caused by the drinking coffee and wine, using tobacco products, and due to the aging process, to name a few. Provided as an in-office procedure, patients can experience close to instantaneous results. The procedure can be more beneficial when compared with over-the-counter teeth whitening options while offering higher strength bleaching, and application by dental professionals who customize the procedure for best outcomes. Specifically, Zoom includes an application of a safe whitening gel applied to teeth with an LED whitening lamp that accelerates results to eight shades whiter in approximately 45 minutes.

Other teeth whitening systems can also be effective at lightening the teeth, however the techniques include a multi-stage process with at-home treatments and in-office procedures designed to help patients who are affected by more serious degrees of teeth discoloration and deepest stains along the teeth. “Professional teeth whitening can significantly brighten teeth from one to three shades lighter regardless of how diligent and thorough one is with daily oral hygiene or by using over the counter whiteners,” said Dr. Kinsey. “The gift of dental health, treatments and procedures is a unique way to thank loved ones and ourselves and acknowledge the importance that taking care of one’s teeth, mouth and gums which can medically benefit the whole body.”


According to Dr. Kinsey, as the Valentine’s Day holiday approaches on February 14,it may be considered the happiest time of year, but it can also be stressful. Dr. Kinsey added with appearance pressures to look and feel great, patients can be supported by a myriad of short and long-term solutions for better dental health. An attractive and pain free mouth can be obtained for children, teens, women and men.
