Zoom Whitening is a professional in-office teeth whitening procedure that uses a high-powered light to activate a hydrogen peroxide gel. The light causes the hydrogen peroxide to break down into oxygen and water, which penetrates the enamel and dentin of the teeth, bleaching any discoloration. The procedure typically takes about an hour, and results can last for up to two years.
Zoom Whitening is a safe and effective way to whiten teeth, but it is not without some risks. Some people may experience sensitivity to the light or the gel, and there is a small risk of gum irritation. It is important to talk to your dentist about the risks and benefits of Zoom Whitening before you decide if it is right for you.
The Zoom Whitening procedure is performed by a dentist or dental hygienist. The dentist or hygienist will first clean your teeth and then apply a protective gel to your gums. The hydrogen peroxide gel will then be applied to your teeth and activated with a high-powered light. The light will be shone on your teeth for about 15 minutes at a time, for a total of about an hour. After the procedure, you may experience some sensitivity to hot or cold foods and drinks. Your teeth will continue to whiten for up to 24 hours after the procedure.
If you are considering Zoom Whitening, it is important to talk to your dentist about the risks and benefits. Zoom Whitening is a safe and effective way to whiten teeth, but it is not right for everyone.
