How does Zoom!® whiten the teeth?
Zoom!® is a bleaching process that lightens the dentin and enamel of the teeth. Zoom!®
contains a hydrogen peroxide component (25%), which is the active
ingredient in the gel. When hydrogen peroxide is applied to the teeth,
the peroxide component breaks down into tiny oxygen bubbles. It is
these bubbles that eliminate yellowing and staining.
A specially designed LED light is used to activate the gel and expedite the
whitening process. This specialized light contains a unique infrared
filter that works to reduce the amount of heat (and therefore
sensitivity) on the surface of the teeth during the procedure. The
internal structure of the teeth remains completely healthy and intact
during and after the treatment.
with any whitening system, the post-treatment results can vary
according to the degree of staining and the condition of the teeth. A
consultation with the dentist prior to treatment will provide
information as to what kind of results Zoom!® can provide in specific instances. Zoom!®
is only applied to healthy teeth and gums. If tooth decay or gum
disease is an issue, these need to be controlled before the bleaching
treatment is performed.
How is the Zoom!® treatment performed?
to treatment, there will be a consultation where we will outline the
exact procedure. On treatment day, a deep cleaning (prophylaxis) will
be performed to rid the teeth of any debris and plaque. Then, special
eyewear will be provided to protect the eyes from the bright LED light, and
splashguards to protect the clothing from the bleaching agent.
Here is a brief overview of the Zoom!® procedure:
Cheek retractors will be placed to expose the entire surface of the teeth.
The gums will be painted or covered to reduce sensitivity.
The dentist will apply the whitening gel to the teeth.
The LED light will then be applied to activate the gel. This specialized Zoom!® light can be positioned to work on all the teeth simultaneously.
After 15 minutes, gel will be removed from the teeth and the mouth will be rinsed.
More gel will be applied for another 15 minutes.
Again, the gel will be removed and the mouth will be thoroughly cleansed.
The final treatment of gel will be applied for 15 minutes.
The gel will be removed for the final time.
What happens after treatment?
same external factors that caused the discoloration in the first place
can quickly work their way back onto the teeth. For this reason, the
dentist recommends flossing once a day, thorough cleaning with
anti-sensitivity toothpaste twice a day, and occasional retreatment with
Zoom!® Weekender. These post-treatment measures will ensure that the smile stays at its whitest for a long time.
