What is Zoom teeth whitening?

Zoom Whitening is an in-office teeth-whitening procedure that is carried out by our dentists. This bleaching process is especially known for its ability to brighten teeth from the effects of discoloration. The prominent tool used in this process is the Zoom Advanced Power Chairside Lamp, which accelerates the bleaching process by activating the effects of the hydrogen peroxide.

Who is the right candidate
for Zoom teeth whitening?

Everyone wishes to have a white and bright smile, and especially those suffering from teeth discoloration will significantly benefit from the Zoom teeth-whitening procedure. The causes of teeth discoloration are:

  • Long-time medications, especially antibiotics
  • Smoking, or use of nicotine
  • Genetics and aging
  • Certain diseases, resulting in poor overall health
  • Long-time drinker of coffee, tea, red wine
  • Bad oral hygiene, especially inadequate brushing and flossing
  • Consumption of large amounts of fluoride in childhood years

The above mentioned factors are the most common causes of discoloration of the teeth. Over time, small yellow or brown spots on the teeth can lead to dark stains, making the smile look dull and aged. People who suffer from persistent discoloration of the teeth can certainly take advantage of the Zoom teeth-whitening procedure.

If you are looking to undergo certain cosmetic or restorative dental procedures like getting crowns, veneers, or bridges, you may want to consider getting our teeth whitening procedure in advance. Doing so will ensure that the color of your natural teeth will match the dental prosthesis much better.

What is the process like?

Step 1

First, you can book an appointment with us to receive a consultation with Dr. Martinez, our in-house dental expert. During your consultation, you can discuss the issues you are facing in regards to your teeth, and Dr. Martinez will examine your mouth. If everything is in order, she will give the approval for the Zoom teeth-whitening procedure.

Step 2

The majority of times, people are advised to go for a dental cleaning procedure beforehand, so that the effects of the teeth-whitening procedure last longer.

Step 3

To start the process, your lips and gums will be covered to ensure that only the teeth are exposed to the light.

Step 4

Next, a specially formulated hydrogen-peroxide gel is applied onto the surface of the teeth, and the light from the Zoom Advanced Power Chairside Lamp is directed onto the teeth.

Step 5

The light will activate the effects of the hydrogen peroxide and break it down. This process lasts for 15 minutes and after that, the light is turned off.

Step 6

Our dentist will once again apply a fresh layer of hydrogen peroxide gel onto the teeth and direct the light on the teeth once again. The process is repeated for a total of three times, and the entire procedure can take up to an hour to be completed.

Step 7

As the last step, a specially formulated fluoride gel is applied to the teeth to minimize sensitivity resulting from the procedure.

Step 8

Our dental experts will give you a take-home dental kit which will aid in the proper maintenance of the teeth following the procedure. You will also be briefed about the right practices to be undertaken to prolong the effects of the whitening procedure. Proper maintenance of the teeth-whitening procedure will give you prolonged whitening benefits.
