Zoom! is a fast, safe and effective teeth whitening system available with the supervision of your dentist. It’s a bleaching process that lightens the discoloration of enamel and dentin – the hard, dense tissue that forms the primary matter of the tooth beneath the enamel. When you set up your consultation with us, we’ll recommend a solution that best works for you, to fit your lifestyle and budget.
How Does the Zoom! in-Office Procedure Work?
The Zoom! in-Office procedure generally takes about three hours, which includes the preparation, the whitening and then removal of the whitening solution. During the procedure, you may comfortably listen to music or watch television.
The actual procedure involves using a Zoom! light that helps activate the hydrogen peroxide within the whitening solution. As the hydrogen peroxide is broken down it allows for oxygen to enter the tooth’s enamel and dentin, bleaching any colored areas while the structure of the tooth remains unchanged. Studies show that the use of the Zoom! lamp helps to improve the effectiveness of the whitening solution by 26% or higher, offering, on average, an improvement of up to eight shades.
With the Zoom! in-office teeth whitening, you will also be given a Zoom! take-home whitening system, which can used for touch-ups. This take-home system includes custom fitted trays designed from impressions of the upper and lower teeth.
The Zoom! Take Home Whitening System
Enjoy the convenience of whitening your teeth from just about anywhere you want, at any time. The Zoom! take-home whitening system uses custom fitted trays designed from an impression we take of your teeth. Simply put the gel into your trays and wear the trays for the recommended time, and applications, either during the day or even at night, while you sleep.
Is it safe for my teeth?
Just like any product that you use on your body, it’s important to follow and understand the teeth whitening directions, as some whitening products may irritate your gums or cause sensitivity if they are used incorrectly or too often. Extensive dental research and clinical studies consider teeth whitening to be safe under the supervision of a dentist.
The safest way to whiten your teeth is under the supervision of one of our dentists, who will not only assess your overall oral health, but the health of your teeth, including the oral health history. Your dentist may know that you are likely to experience sensitivity and may recommend a more gentle solution to maximize the results you want with a teeth whitening plan that will not provide any discomfort.
