Because tooth enamel is porous, it is vulnerable to discoloration. Coffee, tea, red wine, dark berries, and even certain medications can all contribute to teeth staining. Though it doesn’t constitute a dental health issue, discoloration can become a significant cosmetic concern for many patients. However, your dentist can now perform a teeth whitening procedure called Zoom! that will lighten teeth by several shades during just one session. Safe, effective, and fast, the Zoom! Whitening treatment is a popular choice for dental patients across the country.
What is Zoom! Whitening?
Zoom! is an ADA-approved teeth whitening procedure that utilizes a concentrated hydrogen peroxide gel and powerful laser device to brighter teeth by several shades during one dental office visit. Many dentists consider Zoom! the safest teeth whitening method currently on the market.
How does Zoom! Whitening work?
Though some patients may choose to space out their Zoom! Teeth Whitening treatment over several visits, it can be administered in less than one hour during a single dental office session. First, the patient’s lips and gum tissue are shielded to ensure that they do not interfere with effectiveness of the Zoom! procedure. Next, the dentist covers the patient’s teeth with a hydrogen peroxide gel that will dissolve interior tooth stains. Then, the dentist applies a laser light, which maximizes the potency of the hydrogen peroxide gel treatment.
Are there any side effects to Zoom! Whitening?
Though some patients may feel minimal discomfort during the Zoom! procedure, many experience no pain at all. Once the procedure is completed, patients are free to resume their normal activities. The makers of Zoom! guarantee that patients will have teeth that are five to eight shades lighter after treatment. With regular brushing, flossing, and dental checkups, all Zoom! recipients can maintain their improved smile for months or years.
