Whitening your teeth can improve your confidence and self-esteem. It can also improve the overall look of your smile so that it appears more uniform and youthful. The Zoom! whitening treatment is ideal for whitening your teeth quickly in-office so that no at-home strips or trays are needed.
What is Zoom! Whitening?
Zoom! whitening involves a hydrogen peroxide gel placed onto the teeth that is cured using a bright light. The light activates the gel so that it quickly and effectively removes staining and discoloration. This makes the process ideal for patients who want to quickly get their teeth whitened without the wait that comes with most at-home products.
Who is a good candidate for Zoom! Whitening?
An exam will be done prior to the whitening treatment. Most patients are viable candidates for Zoom! whitening, but some of the reasons you may want to consider the procedure include:
- You have severe staining and discoloration
- You have an upcoming event and can’t wait for at-home products to work
- You want serious results that provide better whitening
What to expect with the Procedure
The Zoom! whitening procedure is done quickly and easily in the office. You will have gauze or cotton rolls placed over the gums to expose the teeth. A hydrogen peroxide gel is then placed on top of the teeth and a light is put into your mouth to activate the gel. More gel is applied every 15 minutes for a grand total of about 45 minutes in the chair.
