Zoom teeth whitening is an outpatient procedure that uses hydrogen peroxide gel to remove stains from your teeth. When the gel is applied to your teeth it’s absorbed by your enamel and oxidizes the molecules within. The oxidation process makes your teeth whiter, eliminating years of discoloration.
Zoom teeth whitening provides long-lasting results and it’s much quicker than over-the-counter teeth-whitening treatments.
Teeth change color for various reasons, including the natural aging process, poor oral hygiene, and tobacco use. Other contributing factors include the foods you eat, the beverages you drink, and the medications and supplements you take.
No matter the underlying cause of your tooth discoloration, Zoom teeth whitening provides a safe and effective way to transform your smile.
At the beginning of your Zoom teeth-whitening procedure, your Franklin Square Dental provider covers your tongue and gums with a protective rubber dam. Then, they apply the hydrogen peroxide gel to each of your teeth and let it sit for 15-20 minutes.
Once your teeth have time to absorb the solution, your dentist points a special light at them, triggering a whitening reaction. Your dentist repeats the same steps several times until you achieve your desired results.
The results of Zoom teeth whitening usually last three or four months, but it’s possible to extend them by practicing good oral hygiene. Franklin Square Dental recommends brushing your teeth twice daily, flossing once daily, and visiting the office every six months for professional teeth cleaning and an oral exam.
You can reduce tooth discoloration from recurring by drinking dark beverages, like coffee or black tea, from a straw and quitting the use of tobacco.
Yes. Zoom teeth whitening is safe and usually well-tolerated. Various clinical studies have shown that Zoom has no adverse effects on your health. There’s even some evidence to suggest it strengthens your tooth enamel.
