Teeth whitening is a highly sought-after dental procedure that is used to enhance the aesthetics of your smile. Our teeth tend to stain when we do not brush them thoroughly or due to the excessive consumption of colored foods. Some of the other causes are smoking cigarettes, chewing tobacco, excessive consumption of alcohol, etc. These stains can be removed using our state-of-the-art teeth whitening techniques.
What is Zoom Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening has been around for many years now and is one of the simplest procedures to make your smile look more pleasing. It is performed using a whitening gel containing hydrogen peroxide, a chemical agent used predominantly in most teeth whitening products. The advancements in dental technology have allowed us to get our hands on some of the more evolved processes, such as Zoom whitening.
Zoom includes the use of a whitening gel containing 25% hydrogen peroxide. This concentration is one of the highest seen in a whitening gel, making it more potent and allowing the results to last longer. More importantly, the Zoom system includes an activating light that helps speed up the process of bleaching the teeth. It increases the liberation of oxygen molecules, thereby imparting a whiter shade to the teeth.
How is Zoom Whitening Performed?
When you visit our dental practice, our dentist will screen the teeth to get a better understanding of the staining. We will look into various factors that could affect the whitening process, such as the presence of restorations or cavities on the teeth, receding gum line, sensitive teeth, gum disease, etc. Based on these observations, we will determine your candidacy for the procedure.
A rubber dam will be placed on the teeth meticulously to cover the gums and expose only the teeth surfaces. We will apply a whitening gel on the teeth and spread it uniformly so that the teeth can get a consistent level of whitening. An activating light will be used to activate the whitening gel and speed up the whitening process. It produces foam comprising oxygen molecules, which help bleach the teeth and lift the staining molecules from the teeth's surfaces. The gel will be rinsed off after a few minutes, and the procedure may be repeated based on the severity of staining and the level of whitening you prefer.
