What is Zoom bleaching?
Zoom Bleaching is a whitening procedure that uses a special gel and ultraviolet (UV) light technology. The bleaching gel, which contains hydrogen peroxide, is placed on the surfaces of the teeth. The gel is then activated by the UV light, which helps it penetrate the surface of the tooth for deeper cleaning.
As the gel breaks down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin to bleach stains. Your dental team will be able to adjust the whitening gel's strength and duration for your teeth.
How Zoom bleaching works
Zoom bleaching involves applying a bleaching gel to the patient's teeth. The gel is then activated by a special light, which speeds up the bleaching process. The gel is thick enough to cover the teeth but remains thin enough to work its way between the teeth. The gel is specially formulated to be gentle to the soft tissues of your mouth.
Zoom bleaching - Procedure
When patients want whiter teeth, Zoom bleaching is often recommended. This procedure involves laser whitening, which is the quickest and most effective method. It also guarantees results, unlike over-the-counter whitening products.
After covering the patient's gums and soft tissue, the dentist will apply a gel that contains Hydrogen Peroxide to the patient's teeth. The Zoom whitening light will be placed over the teeth to act as a catalyst for the whitening process, and the gel will be activated. The broken oxygen molecules from the gel will penetrate the enamel and act to eliminate the dental stains.
The gel will stay on the teeth for 15 minutes, and then the dentist will rinse out the remaining gel. The dentist will repeat this process several times, and your teeth will be up to eight shades whiter. The dentist will then do a final check of the teeth to make sure they are white enough.
Zoom bleaching - Benefits
The Zoom teeth whitening procedure takes only about an hour from start to finish to whiten the teeth up to eight shades.
Since Zoom's patented gel formula is activated by light, it provides better results in less time. Plus, it's safe on enamel and soft tissue.
Many patients report feeling less sensitivity with Zoom. The bleaching gel contains potassium nitrate and fluoride, which desensitizes teeth and makes them less sensitive.
Custom-fit whitening trays
Because our dentists create custom-fit bleaching trays, the bleaching gel can adhere to the teeth and penetrate more effectively than other over-the-counter whitening options.
