Why Consider Zoom! Whitening System
As we age, teeth become stained or discolored. Tobacco use, drinking dark liquids such as red wine, coffee, tea, and soda can also contribute to staining and discoloration. Even some prescription medications can cause yellowing or graying of the teeth. Many people consider teeth whitening when they start to notice a difference in the radiance of their smile and their confidence in their smile.
Zoom! has many advantages over other whitening treatments.
- All teeth are treated at once
- Fast treatment times with longer-lasting results
- Reduced sensitivity compared to many at-home treatments
- Removal of stains on crowns, veneers, and other restorations
- Treatments are safe and performed by an experienced professional
How Does Zoom! Teeth Whitening Work?
Zoom! is a bleaching process that lightens the dentin and enamel of your teeth with a hydrogen peroxide gel in combination with a mercury halide light, which heats the gel and accelerates the whitening process. This light also reduces the amount of heat on the surface of teeth during the procedure, which reduces sensitivity afterward. The internal structure of your teeth remains completely unharmed during and after the treatment.
During the process, we expose the surface of the teeth using cheek retractors and apply a protective covering to the gums. Then, Dr. Marquis applies the whitening gel to the teeth and positions the halide light to further activate the gel on all of your teeth. After 15 minutes, she removes the gel from your teeth and repeats this process three times.
After whitening treatment, it’s important to keep up with daily flossing and brushing with an anti-sensitivity toothpaste. And since discoloration can quickly work its way back into teeth, an occasional touch-up treatment with Zoom! Weekender will help us to keep your smile white for a long, long time.
