What is Zoom whitening?

Zoom whitening is a cosmetic treatment that removes yellow stains and bleaches your teeth for a brighter appearance. Teeth whitening is a safe, fast procedure for visibly lighter teeth. Zoom whitening offers more dramatic results than over-the-counter (OTC) solutions, like whitening strips and toothpastes.

How does Zoom whitening work?

Zoom whitening lightens the dentin and enamel of the teeth. It contains 25% of a hydrogen peroxide solution that makes up the active ingredient in the gel. When applied to the teeth, the peroxide breaks down into tiny oxygen bubbles and creates a volatile reaction with the stain that removes it.

The team uses a mercury metal halide light to activate the gel and accelerate the whitening process. This special light contains a unique infrared filter that reduces the amount of heat on the surface of the teeth during the procedure. 

With less heat than alternative LED whitening solutions, Zoom can minimize tooth sensitivity.  The internal structure of the teeth remains completely healthy and intact during and after the treatment.

What can I expect from Zoom whitening?

Before Zoom whitening, the team performs a deep cleaning treatment called a prophylaxis to remove any bacteria and debris. Next, they give you special eyewear to protect your eyes and a splash guard for your clothes. The team exposes your teeth with cheek retractors and covers your gums before applying the whitening gel.

After activating the gel for 15 minutes, the team removes it and begins the process again. Zoom whitening includes three intervals to dramatically whiten your teeth.

Why might I need Zoom whitening?

As you age, the thick enamel that keeps your teeth white starts to erode. Gradual wear-and-tear, teeth grinding, and genetics can accelerate the process. Other factors that cause dark, yellow teeth include:

  • Coffee and tea
  • Red wine
  • Soy sauce
  • Marinara sauce
  • Curry
  • Certain medications
  • Poor oral hygiene

As your enamel wears down, it exposes the darker dentin underneath. Only professional whitening solutions have the ingredients to effectively bleach this type of advanced discoloration.

  • Simultaneous treatment of all teeth
