How does Zoom! whiten teeth?
Zoom! is a bleaching treatment that works to lighten the enamel of your teeth while using hydrogen peroxide as one of the active ingredients in the gel. The hydrogen peroxide works to create very tiny oxygen bubbles that essentially scrub away the yellowing on your teeth.
A mercury light is also used to activate the gel and make the whitening process much faster. The light is actually an infrared light so it doesn’t hurt the patient at all and isn’t in any way hot on the patient’s teeth.
The post-treatment results can vary from patient to patient but it is important to keep in mind that Zoom! is only going to be applied to people with healthy teeth and gums, so any type of tooth decay could not be good for this procedure.
How is the Zoom! treatment performed?
The first thing that happens is a consultation meeting in which the dentist will just outline everything that is going to happen with the patient, and then the first thing that happens on the treatment day is that the dentist will completely clean the patient’s teeth of plaque and debris before the patient is given special goggles for eye protection from the light and special clothes to protect their clothes from the bleaching chemicals.
Overview of the Zoom! procedure:
- The entire surface of the teeth will be exposed.
- Gums are painted to reduce sensitivity during the rest of the procedure.
- The dentist applies the gel to the teeth.
- The halide light then activates the gel.
- About 15 minutes later the gel is removed from the teeth and the mouth is rinsed.
- More gel is applied for another round of 15 minutes.
- The gel is removed again and the mouth is rinsed again.
- Then a final treatment of gel for another 15 minutes
- Gel is removed for the final time.
What happens after the whitening treatment?
The same factors that made your teeth yellow in the first place can still play a significant factor after the treatment is over, so it is definitely very important to keep this in mind as you do this procedure and go out into the world post whitening.
