Zoom is a teeth whitening treatment that can lighten your teeth up to eight shades using light therapy with little to no pain or discomfort. It’s one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the U.S. for several reasons:
The Zoom tooth whitening gel is a proprietary formula that is ideal for use in the professional Zoom procedure. When applied to the teeth, the gel works together with a special light to break up stains and discolorations on enamel. This gel also contains a mild acid that works to remove surface stains from coffee, wine, cigarette, or tobacco use. Once applied, the special blue light will activate the gel and begin working on removing stains on your teeth. This process is repeated several times over the course of your in-office treatment.
During the appointment, patients may also receive home whitening trays for use at home. These trays are made specifically to fit over your teeth to evenly distribute the gel and activate it with the use of a specialized small LED light. We strongly recommend that patients begin with an in-office treatment and then maintain the results with an at-home whitening kit. This two-pronged approach gives patients the best results in the least amount of time.
While the Zoom teeth whitening system is very effective for most patients, there are some limitations to consider before receiving this treatment. Patients may need to avoid drinking darker-colored beverages like grape juices, coffee, and red wine for a few days after treatment because the drinks may stain the teeth. Additionally, patients with sensitive teeth and gums may have trouble with this treatment since the teeth may be more sensitive following treatment. However, these issues are typically mild and will not last beyond the first day or two after the procedure. To further discuss concerns about your dental health prior to this procedure, you should schedule an appointment with your dentist ahead of time.
Zoom whitening is very safe when performed by a trained dentist. The professional treatment is supervised by a doctor, and it includes all of the necessary protective measures to prevent side effects and keep patients comfortable during and after the treatment. In fact, patients who undergo Zoom whitening are usually surprised at just how fast and easy the treatment process is! Plus, our patients are amazed by the dramatic results they achieve with Zoom whitening.
The length of time your results will last depends on your habits, lifestyle, and diet. If you regularly consume coffee, wine, soda, etc., or use tobacco products, these substances can stain your teeth and diminish your results more quickly. You can keep your teeth looking bright by making sure you avoid any foods and beverages that cause stains and be sure to keep up with your oral hygiene routine. Brushing twice a day and flossing at least once a day will help keep your smile brighter longer!
