What is the Zoom! In-Office Teeth Whitening Procedure?
Zoom! is a specially designed whitening or bleaching process that lightens discoloration of your teeth’s enamel and dentin. The Zoom! light-activated whitening gel’s active ingredient is hydrogen peroxide. As the hydrogen peroxide gel is broken down during the procedure, oxygen enters the enamel and the dentin, bleaching or whitening any colored substances while the structure of the tooth is unchanged.
The Zoom! light in our Jefferson NC office aids in activating the hydrogen peroxide and also helps it penetrate the surface of the teeth for a better result. A study has shown that use of the Zoom! lamp increases the effectiveness of the Zoom! gel by 33% or more, giving an average improvement of eight to ten shades whiter.
We split the Zoom! In-Office Teeth Whitening procedure into two visits:
During the first short visit, we take impressions to make custom whitening trays for your follow-up at-home whitening to keep your teeth their whitest. We also have you start using a fluoride gel to make your teeth less sensitive for the actual procedure.
During the second visit, about a week later, in a two hour appointment, your teeth will become dramatically whiter. The Zoom! In-Office Teeth Whitening procedure is simple. It begins with a short preparation to isolate your lips and gums. We then apply the proprietary Zoom! Whitening Gel, which is activated by a specially designed light. Teeth typically become at least eight to ten shades whiter, sometimes more.
A five-minute fluoride treatment completes the procedure. Then you follow up at home with at-home whitening as often as you desire (about once every two weeks or once a month) to keep your teeth just as white as when you left our Jefferson NC office. You’ll be amazed with the results. It’s safe, effective and fast—extremely fast. In just over two hours, your teeth will be dramatically whiter. The convenience of Zoom! in comparison to days of wearing trays and gradual whitening—makes it the perfect choice if you are busy or just like fast results.
