Get ready to Zoom!
The Zoom! Teeth Whitening procedure is simple and painless. It begins with a short preparation to isolate your lips and gums. We then apply a special cleaner that reduces sensitivity and precleans the teeth. After this, the Zoom!Whitening Gel is applied and activated by a special light. Teeth typically become at least six to ten shades whiter, sometimes more. A five-minute fluoride treatment completes the procedure. You’ll be amazed with the results. In most cases, teeth get even whiter the first few days after the procedure. For long term results the take home whitening must be done after the Zoom procedure in the office.
How Zoom! Works!
The Zoom! light activated gel was developed after years of research by Discus Dental, the leaders in professional take-home tooth whitening. The gel is a scientifically formulated, pH balanced Hydrogen Peroxide that, when activated by the Zoom! light, gently penetrates the teeth to remove deep stains and discoloration. With proper care and an occasional touch-up at home, your whiter smile will sparkle for years.
Who may benefit from ZOOM Teeth Whitening?
Almost anyone. However, teeth whitening may not be as effective on some people as others. We can determine if you are a viable candidate for ZOOM Teeth Whitening through a thorough oral exam, including a teeth shade assessment. Teeth that have a yellowish tint usually have the best shift to a whiter smile.
Do many people whiten their teeth?
More people whiten their teeth than you might imagine. A bright, sparkling smile can make a big difference for everyone. The ZOOM Teeth Whitening System makes it easier and faster than ever before.
Is ZOOM Teeth Whitening safe?
Yes, extensive research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth under the supervision of Dr. Antolak. In fact, many dentists consider teeth whitening the safest cosmetic dental procedure available. As with any teeth whitening product, ZOOM Teeth Whitening is not recommended for children under 13 years of age and pregnant or lactating women. Since tooth-colored fillings and crowns don’t whiten it is best to have us access your situation before you begin to whiten your teeth.
How long do the results last?
By following some simple post teeth whitening care instructions, your teeth will always be lighter than they were before. To keep your teeth looking their best, we recommend flossing, brushing twice daily, and occasional touch-ups with ZOOM 2 take-home gel. These are professional formula products designed specifically to keep your teeth their brightest. These products are available through our office.
Is there any difference between over-the-counter teeth whiteners and ZOOM Teeth Whitening?
Yes! Consulting with Dr. Antolak is always the first step to whitening your teeth safely. Plus, over-the-counter teeth whitening strips, brush-on gels and toothpastes take weeks or months to whiten your teeth just a few shades. ZOOM is clinically proven to whiten your teeth nine to twelve shades in an hour or so. Only a dentist can get your teeth this white, this fast.
How does the ZOOM Teeth Whitening In-Office System work?
The ZOOM light-activated teeth whitening gel’s active ingredient is Hydrogen Peroxide. As the Hydrogen Peroxide gel is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, bleaching colored substances while the structure of the tooth is unchanged. The ZOOM teeth whitening light aids in activating the hydrogen peroxide and helps it penetrate the surface of the tooth.
