Zoom® Whitening and Opalescence® Boost

Zoom® Whitening using UV-light for teeth whitening
They are all proven to be safe and effective ways to whiten your teeth. Only a dentist can perform them.
What is Zoom® teeth whitening?
Patient with a light source device irradiating teeth whitening gel during an in-office procedureZoom® Whitening is a frequently used ultraviolet light tooth whitening procedure. It addresses stains caused by foods and drinks (coffee, red wine, tea, etc.):
It generally takes about 1 hour or so to be completed.
It consists of three 15 minutes applications of a zoom whitening gel. These contain hydrogen peroxide (25%), which lightens both enamel and dentin stains.
We will cover your eyes, gums, and lips for safety reasons to protect them from the bleaching gel. We will use a hardening resin or a liquid rubber dam painted over your gums.
Makes use of an ultraviolet lamp to speed up the whitening process.
So unlike Opalescence® Boost (see below), light is part of the bleaching process.A small percentage of patients (about 7-8 %) experience sensitivity after a whitening zoom procedure.It subsides significantly after 24 hours and should completely disappear within 48 hours.(If you are concerned about sensitivity, then check Chapter 4: Sensitivity and gums’ irritation after teeth whitening) . To address this, we include post-treatment care instructions to apply a fluoride paste-gel to your teeth. We do this right after the procedure.
Zoom teeth whitening results
Zoom® teeth whitening can transform your smile and help you achieve up to eight shades lighter teeth than your original color. …
…. Yes! Eight shades improvement, in about an hour.Have you ever been upset because of a dull smile and dwelled over how your once whiter teeth have lost their brilliance? Despite regular daily brushing, flossing, and visits to your dental hygienist, have surface stains from foods, coffee, tea, red wine, and the aging process finally taken their collective toll?Well, in that case, Zoom teeth whitening will brighten up your smile and your day.So, UV-light whitening is the best solution for all dental stains, right?Not so fast!The best candidates for Zoom tooth whitening are stains that can be treated with topical bleaching. These include tobacco, food, or drink stains.Stains due to fluorosis and antibiotics, called intrinsic stains, are extremely resistant to teeth whitening. The final result in such cases may only be a marginal improvement.Why is that you may wonder?Because topical bleaching lightens surrounding enamel, leaving these deeply intrinsic stains unscathed. In this case, your dentist will advise other options such as dental bonding and porcelain veneers.
Take-home whitening kits for touch-ups
In addition to Zoom teeth whitening, we also offer take-home kits for touch-ups. They will maintain you glittering smile for a longer time.Take-home trays are molded from models of your actual teeth. This customization of the whitening trays will protect your gums from the gel’s leaks. Therefore, you will no longer have to worry about gum irritation.Let’s now talk about another safe and effective teeth whitening method we use.Just scroll down.
