What are the differences of Zoom! teeth whitening with the traditional whitening where whitening trays are used?
How does Zoom! whitening work?
Zoom! is a very simple procedure. After a brief cleaning of your teeth, and isolation of your gums and cheeks, a peroxide-based gel is applied on your teeth. In order to activate the gel, a special light is used which will accelerate the whitening process.
The action of the gel and the light together on your teeth significantly reduces the time it takes to whiten. The Zoom! light is applied in three 15-20 minute intervals depending your specific condition and whitening requirements. We will be happy to explain the Zoom! process.
Who are good candidates for Zoom?
Not everyone is a good candidate for zoom whitening. If you consider Zoom as an option to give you an instant makeover, our in house dentist will examine your teeth to make sure no serious conditions, such as cavities or decay or existing periodontal disease are already present. In those cases these immediate problems are to be addressed before Zoom!.
48 to 72 hours after the treatment, you should avoid any sort of staining food or drink, especially wine, coffee, tea, and cigarettes. If you feel sensitivity with your teeth, you can use over the counter toothpastes that are recommended to reduce the teeth sensitivity.
The Zoom ! Whitespeed In-Office Whitening System is a revolutionary tooth whitening procedure. It's safe effective and very fast. In just under an hour, your teeth will be dramatically whiter. Zoom ! Whitening is ideal for anyone looking for immediate results. The convenience of Zoom ! in comparison to days of wearing trays and gradual whitening makes it the perfect choice for the busy patient.
The Zoom ! light activated gel was developed after years of research by Discus Dental, the leaders in professional take-home tooth whitening. The gel is a scientifically formulated, pH balanced Hydrogen Peroxide that, when activated by the Zoom ! light, gently penetrates the teeth to remove deep stains and discoloration. With proper care and an occasional touch-up at home, your whiter smile will sparkle for a long time.
Requirements Prior to Zoom! Treatment
All patients will require a limited examination prior to proceeding with ZOOM whitening treatment, including review of medical and dental history. Examination will evaluate whether dental disease, such as periodontal disease, abscesses or cavities, are present. If such disease is found, it must be treated prior to proceeding with whitening treatment because worsening of disease may occur and/or patient may experience pain or increased post- operative sensitivity. Patients must have had a cleaning within the last 6 months to ensure a clean tooth surface is present for optimal results and safe and effective treatment is performed around healthy gums. Your risks and benefits will be discussed with you prior to commencing treatment. ZOOM whitening can only be performed on children 18 years or older, except with parental consent and following examination to ensure dental safety. Tooth whitening is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breast feeding, patients currently treated for a serious illness or disorder, light sensitive individuals including those on PUVA or other photo-chemotherapy, and those taking any photo-reactive drugs or substances, whether over-the-counter, prescription or homeopathic. Our doctor will determine if you are a good candidate.
