Tooth whitening done in a dental clinic is a safe and effective way to brighten your smile. The discoloration of the tooth can happen due to a variety of reasons like drinking tea, coffee, and alcohol or due to smoking. The aging process can also stain and darken your teeth. The results will depend on the whitening method you choose, and it can be quite dramatic.
What is Zoom Whitening?
Zoom Whitening is a bleaching procedure that is used all over the world to lighten the discoloration of tooth enamel. The Zoom-in-office whitening procedure uses the Zoom Advanced Power Chairside Lamp, which accelerates the bleaching process and activates the 25 % hydrogen peroxide for the whitening. When the hydrogen peroxide breaks down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin to bleach the stained substances, leaving the structure of the tooth unchanged. Zoom whitening is a revolutionary method to whiten your tooth. It takes about an hour or so to complete the process and get your teeth looking eight shades lighter. It is very safe, fast, and effective.
What is the procedure for Zoom Whitening?
The dentist will first examine the patient’s teeth and gums. This is to ensure that a patient’s gums are healthy enough to handle the teeth bleaching. When the patient is found to be fit for a zoom whitening procedure, the dentist will start a short preparation to isolate the patient’s lips and gums. The next step is to apply the Zoom whitening gel, which contains specifically formulated hydrogen peroxide, to the patient’s teeth. To activate the Zoom whitening gel, a specially designed, low heat light is applied to penetrate the teeth. The effect of this process is that hydrogen peroxide contained in the gel attaches itself to stained molecules of the teeth, weakening them. This allows oxygen to enter the tooth enamel and whitens them. This process is repeated twice to get the full whitening effect. To end the procedure, the patient has to undergo a five-minute fluoride treatment.
