Zoom Teeth Whitening


Zoom whitening bleaches and whitens the natural teeth of a patient by make the shade of stained or discolored teeth appear to be lighter. The dentist applies a gel to protect the gums and then puts hydrogen peroxide gel on a small brush or tray. An overhead lamp with a UV light activates the gel which allows oxygen to enter the enamel and dentin layer of the teeth while breaking down stains. This process is performed three times by the dentist. The patient will also take home some bleaching trays and bleaching gel tubes to use on a daily basis for two weeks.

A good candidate is a person over the age of 16 that has discoloration on the teeth. Other candidates include people that have statins on the teeth due to consuming tea, coffee, red wine and tobacco products. The person should have healthy teeth and gums. Patients with a yellow tone to their teeth respond better to the treatment than people with a brownish tone. It is not an ideal treatment for anyone with dental restorations since they are immune to whitening substances.

The average cost of Zoom whitening is anywhere from $150-$500. The cost includes the in-office treatment and the materials patients take home to continue the treatment and maintain the results.

Zoom whitening provides immediate results. The results continue to improve as the patient continues the treatment at home. The results can last for up to 18 months as long as the patient practices proper oral hygiene and stays away from food and beverages that will cause further stains.
