Zoom In-Chair Teeth Whitening
Zoom is a whitening process widely used throughout the country and around the world to lighten discolouration of enamel and dentin. Tooth discolouration may result from drinking coffee, tea, cola, and red wine; or from smoking. The aging process also can stain and darken your teeth. The zoom in-office tooth whitening procedure uses the zoom advanced power chair-side lamp – said to accelerate the bleaching process – to activate the 25% hydrogen peroxide whitening. As the hydrogen peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin to bleach the stained substances, leaving the structure of the tooth unchanged.
The procedure is usually broken down into three steps;
- Initial consultation and treatment planning to see whether zoom-in office whitening is right for you. Your dentist will be talking to you about your lifestyle habits and how you look after your teeth examining and evaluating your mouth noting the work that has been done and the status of your gums.
- Actual procedure, covering the lips and gums for protection and exposing just the teeth, the dentist will apply the zoom hydrogen peroxide whitening gel, working with the zoom light to penetrate the teeth while breaking up stains and discolouration. Gel is applied 3 times and remains in place for 15 mins while light is activated each time. After the 3rd time a sensitivity reducing fluoride paste gel is applied to the teeth.
- Lastly you will be given instructions and a home use touch up kit to keep you’re your new white smile lasting longer! You must maintain appropriate oral hygiene to prevent future stains and come in for regular check ups. If you have any other questions feel free to ask your dentist.
