What Is Zoom!® Whitening?
The procedure begins at your dentist’s office with a whitening gel applied to your teeth. A special light is then directed at the gel to help activate the active bleaching ingredients. The whitening agent then is able to get into your dentin & whiten teeth while not changing the structure of the teeth. This is done three times for 15-minute intervals.
Afterward, a sensitivity cream is applied. The entire process takes less than an hour, though a recent teeth cleaning is strongly recommended, possibly directly before the procedure. After your Zoom!® treatment is done, your doctor will provide home care instructions as well as a whitening trays to ensure treatment lasts.
While many teeth-whitening products are available—including Zoom!@—these at-home treatments do not have the same strength of active ingredients as those found in dental offices. This is to help protect patients from accidentally harming themselves with high concentrations of whitening products, which could lead to increased sensitivity & irritation. In the hands of a trained professional, these stronger options are safe & effective & their results can be more profound & immediate.
Finding a Shade Right for You
Not everyone is looking to whiten their teeth by a large amount. Depending on your goals, your treatment may involve a less concentrated whitening gel. Your dentist will be able to explain what a shade whiter vs. several shades whiter will look like. Many dentists have digital aids that can help show you what your teeth may look like after a treatment. There are also many examples to look through so you can determine just how much whiter you’d like your teeth to be.
Different levels of whiteness do not affect treatment time, however, changes to diet & quitting smoking may be required to keep results to the longest extent possible after the treatment is complete.
