Zoom!® teeth whitening is just one of the dental bleaching systems we used to enhance the brightness of patient’s smiles. Let’s take a moment to consider how Zoom!® teeth whitening works and if it’s the right option for you.
Zoom!® teeth whitening is one of the most popular options for dental bleaching offered in dentist’s offices today. This professional-strength in-office dental bleaching system has a long track record of success, with results that have pleased dentists and patients alike.
Zoom!® teeth whitening involves the use of a special bleaching agent that's applied directly to the teeth. Once the bleaching agent is in place, the teeth are then exposed to a special light that helps unlock the deep-penetrating bleaching properties of the Zoom!® whitening solution.
While undergoing Zoom!® teeth whitening, patients will wear protective goggles to keep the light away from their eyes. This is just a common sense safety precaution, and the reason why professional supervision is crucial.
Good candidates for Zoom!® teeth whitening are people who have surface stains on their teeth. Many times these kinds of stains develop as a result of foods and beverages. Over time, exposure to these substances causes the teeth to become discolored. Similarly, smoking and the use of tobacco products can lead to stains, which Zoom!® teeth whitening can help remove.
Poor candidates for Zoom!® teeth whitening are patients who have stains that emerge from within the tooth. This could include discoloration for medications or from tooth infections. Zoom!® teeth whitening works on the enamel on the surface and simply cannot address stains that are deeply embedded in the tooth structure.
After undergoing Zoom!® teeth whitening, patients will typically experience some tooth sensitivity. This will last for a few days. It’s a good idea to avoid foods/beverages that are hot or cold in temperature as these can trigger bouts of tooth sensitivity.
The number of Zoom!® teeth whitening sessions required will depend on the extent of your tooth discoloration. Some patients will only need one session to achieve optimal results, while other patients may need an additional Zoom!® teeth whitening treatment or two.
During the consultation process, we can discuss the number of teeth whitening sessions you’ll need as well as any other procedures that might help your smile be its very whitest.
