The Zoom! Teeth Whitening Treatment
In-office Zoom! Whitening is completed with a special 25% hydrogen peroxide gel that is activated when exposed to a special UV light. Teeth whitening is one of the least invasive and safest procedures in cosmetic dentistry.
4 Step Guide
- The dentist will start with covering your gums, lips, and the skin around your lips so only the teeth are exposed to the UV light.
- Then your dentist will apply special Zoom! Whitening hydrogen peroxide gel that bleaches teeth very quickly when activated by laser light. The gel penetrates surface layers of your teeth to remove stains and discolouration.
- The Zoom! gel is applied in 3 or 4 fifteen minute cycles for a total time of 45 – 60 minutes.
- Once the cycles have been completed, your dentist will clean your teeth and you will be ready to go home with brighter teeth and youthful appearance!
Teeth whitening is not a one-time procedure and your teeth may need to be re-treated every couple years so you can maintain the bright teeth. However, re-whitening procedure takes way less time than the initial appointment. In case you have sensitive teeth, at-home whitening might be more suitable for you. If you choose this method, a custom mouth-guard filled with a mild bleach will be made for you. The mouth-guard fits perfectly on your teeth to ensure that bleach is spread equally. It usually takes 1-2 weeks to achieve the results using this method.
