What exactly is Zoom Teeth Whitening?
ZOOM teeth whitening is used by our dentists to change the color of the teeth by a number of shades. Zoom teeth whitening is a process that uses a 25% hydrogen peroxide gel; the gel is activated via a special UV light. Your eyes, lips and gums are completely covered and protected throughout the entire procedure. The procedure consists of three 15-minute sessions. A fresh layer of whitening gel is applied after each session as the old gel is removed from your teeth. Zoom teeth whitening is considered one of the safest procedures available in dentistry.
How does ZOOM TEETH WHITENING work?
The results may vary from patient to patient during the process of ZOOM teeth whitening. The ZOOM works by using a safe but high level concentration of hydrogen peroxide. Once this gel is activated using a special blue light, the oxidation process of Carbamide Peroxide starts, thus releasing more oxygen which accelerates the bleaching process.
How effective will ZOOM TEETH WHITENING be and how is it measured?
Usually Doctors will measure the initial shade of your teeth and the final shade, to see how many shades they have changed. It is sometimes very hard to predict how white they will become, but a normal range is around 6 to 8 shades.
What is removed during the ZOOM teeth whitening process?
Studies have shown that ZOOM is effective against removing stains that have accumulated from drinking coffee, wine, red sauces and nicotine. Recent Zoom whitening treatments in our office have seen results with changes in shade color from 6-8 shades. The Zoom teeth whitening system bleaches the color of your teeth by lightening the color of the enamel and the dentin.
What type of patient may benefit from ZOOM teeth whitening?
Any patient can benefit from Zoom teeth whitening, however the treatment is not as effective for some as it is for others.
