ZOOM! Teeth Whitening
Cosmetic Dentistry, Teeth Whitening, Zoom
Zoom! Whitening is best recognized for its use on ABC’s Extreme Makeover. As with the Day White treatment, Zoom! lightens tooth enamel and dentin using a bleaching process. Unlike Day White, however, the entire in-office procedure takes about ONE hour.
Hydrogen peroxide, the bleaching agent for tooth whitening in the Zoom! whitening gel, is activated by laser. As the light breaks down the hydrogen peroxide, oxygen enters your enamel and dentin, bleaching any colored substances while leaving the rest of the tooth unchanged.
If you follow the simple, post-whitening care instructions, your teeth should remain whiter than your original color for some time to come. Proper follow-up care includes daily flossing, twice-daily brushing and occasional touch-ups with Zoom! Weekender or Nite White gel.
You may experience some sensitivity during the Zoom! treatment, although the warmth of the laser light should alleviate any discomfort. If your gums tend to be sensitive, you might ask your dentist for anti-sensitivity toothpaste, to be used prior to tooth whitening.
