How Does Zoom Tooth Whitening Work?
How does the zoom whitening procedure work?
Are you are in search of your best smile? Perhaps you should consider the Zoom Whitening Procedure. Let's take a closer look at the procedure and how it works.
What is it?
The Zoom Whitening Procedure is an in-office process that uses a diluted hydrogen peroxide solution along with a chair-side Zoom Advanced Power Lamp to whiten teeth. It does so without altering the structure of the teeth. The UV light of the lamp combined with the hydrogen peroxide solution work together to whiten teeth back to their natural color. It is a widely accepted process that is not only used throughout the entire country, but the world.
Deciding if the procedure is right for you
The first step in the Zoom Whitening Procedure is determining whether or not this is the right process for you. Children under the age of 13 will not qualify, nor will women who are either pregnant or women who are lactating.
Many people who drink coffee, tea, wine, and sodas or who eat dark sauces and berries will slowly experience stained teeth as time passes. Smoking is also a cause of staining. These people are all candidates for Zoom Whitening.
It is important to note that the Zoom Whitening process is done in a series of stages and you can decide to stop at a whitening stage that appears best for you.
What you should expect
If after an initial consultation you decide you want to move forward with the procedure, you can either immediately get started, or set up an appointment for a future visit.
If you have sensitive teeth, you will be advised to brush with a toothpaste that is designed for sensitive teeth ahead of time and afterwards. We will also monitor your comfort carefully throughout the procedure.
A gel made of a diluted hydrogen peroxide solution will be applied to your teeth. We will then turn on the chair-side light to illuminate your teeth, which aids in the whitening. After fifteen minutes, we will check the improvements in the shading of your teeth, reapply the hydrogen peroxide solution, and repeat the procedure. If needed, the process will continue for a third treatment.
Afterward you should have a much brighter, whiter smile!
Are there any post-treatment concerns?
If you have very sensitive teeth, you may wish to take an over-the-counter pain reliever like aspirin or ibuprofen. You will also be advised to brush with a sensitive toothpaste, such as Sensodyne.
In the first 48 hours after treatment it will be important to avoid certain foods and beverages to maintain your newly whitened teeth. We will provide you with a list of dietary restrictions. If you don't feel like you can give up coffee or other restricted beverages for 2 days, we advise using a straw and immediately brushing your teeth afterwards.
