Over the years, our teeth becomes darker as a result of aging, consumption of food and beverages that stain the teeth such as tea, wine and coffee; as well as cigarette-smoking. Certain medications can also darken the teeth. If you wish to make your teeth sparkling white again, Zoom! Whitening is one of the best options you can have.
Zoom is a bleaching process that can whiten the dentin and enamel of the teeth. It is an in-office type of whitening and it works really fast. The entire procedure can be completed in under an hour.
Before your dentist will begin the procedure, they will first need to clean your teeth to ensure the best results. Then, your lips and gums will be covered, so only your teeth are exposed. The Zoom hydrogen peroxide gel will then be applied to each tooth and then the dentist will use Zoom light to break up the discoloration and stains on your teeth. After 15 minutes, the dentist will re-apply the whitening gel, and a final application will be done after another 15 minutes.
Once the 45-minute session is done, your dentist may apply a fluoride gel to reduce teeth sensitivity.
Should You Choose Zoom Teeth Whitening?
Zoom can make your teeth up to 8 shades whiter after treatment. It’s an excellent choice for those who want to make their teeth lighter in a short period of time. However, the results of each treatment vary from person to person. Individuals who are pregnant or lactating should not undergo this treatment. It is also not recommended for children under 13 years of age.
