Zoom™ In-office bleaching is a great way to whiten your teeth. Most patients can achieve 5 to 22 shade changes in just one hour!
The complete procedure takes about an hour. A regular teeth cleaning and use of a special fluoride toothpaste is recommended prior to the actual Zoom™ teeth whitening session. The procedure begins with a short preparation to cover the lips and gums, leaving the teeth exposed. The dentist or dental assistant then applies the Zoom™ hydrogen peroxide whitening gel, which works together with the Zoom™ light to penetrate the teeth and break up the stains and discoloration. The gel remains in place for 15 minutes while the light is activated. During this time, you can relax, watch TV or listen to music.
The gel is applied for three to four 15-minute sessions of light activation. The total length of time depends on shade desired and if there is sensitivity to the bleaching gel.
Of course effectiveness, safety, and results vary greatly between products, so contact our office at (435) 257-7016 if you are considering any of these choices.
