What is Zoom! teeth whitening?
What can cause tooth discoloration?
There are many causes. The most common include aging and consumption of staining substances such as coffee, tea or tobacco. During tooth formation consumption of tetracycline, certain antibiotics, or excessive fluoride may also cause tooth discoloration.
Who may benefit from teeth whitening?
Just about anyone can benefit from tooth whitening. However, treatment may not be as effective for some as it is for others. With an oral exam, Drs. Shorten or Wilson can determine if you are a candidate for this procedure, including a shade assessment.
Is teeth whitening becoming more popular?
Is teeth whitening safe?
Yes, research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth under the supervision of a dentist is safe. In fact, many dentists consider whitening the safest cosmetic dental procedure available.
Do the results last a long time?
By following some simple post whitening care instructions, your teeth will always be lighter than they were before.
We recommend flossing, brushing twice daily with Zoom! Whitening Toothpaste, and touch-ups with Zoom! take-home gel. These are professional formula products designed specifically to keep your teeth their brightest. They are available through our office.
Is there any difference between over-the-counter tooth whiteners and Zoom!
Yes! Consulting Drs. Shorten and Wilson is always the first step to whitening your teeth safely.
Over-the-counter tooth whitening strips, brush-on gels, and toothpaste take weeks or months to whiten your teeth just a few shades. Zoom! is clinically proven to whiten your teeth eight shades* in one hour or six shades* in just one weekend.
How does the Zoom! In-Office System work?
The Zoom! light-activated whitening gel’s active ingredient is Hydrogen Peroxide. As Hydrogen Peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, bleaching any colored substance while keeping the structure of the tooth unchanged.
Is the Zoom! In-office procedure painful?
Are there any side effects?
How long is the procedure?
The entire procedure takes just over one hour. The procedure begins with a preparation period followed by one hour of bleaching. A five-minute fluoride treatment completes the procedure (we recommend a cleaning prior to the actual Zoom! Whitening session).
How long does Zoom! Take-Home Whitening take?
The Zoom! take-home gel is designed to be worn between four and eight hours per application. Drs. Shorten or Wilson will advise you on how long you should wear each application.
A recent study showed that you can achieve an average improvement of six shades* after just three nights of use. Drs. Shorten or Wilson will help you determine how many applications are right for you.
How is the Zoom! Take-Home System different from the Zoom! In-Office System?
The main difference between the two systems is that you use the Zoom! Take-Home System in the convenience of your own home over a few nights.
The Zoom! In-Office System is performed entirely in the office.
