Zoom Tooth Whitening

Tooth whitening options are many and varied and there are advantages and disadvantages of each option.  The Zoom teeth whitening system is a chair-side bleaching process used throughout the country and internationally to lighten discoloration of tooth enamel and dentin. There are many causes of tooth discoloration including drinking of coffee, soda, tea, and red wine. Other causes include cigarettes, cigars, pipes, and even smokeless tobacco can stain teeth.

The Zoom system is an in-office tooth whitening procedure utilizes a 25 percent hydrogen peroxide gel combined with Zoom’s small but not significant amounts of UVB (ultra-violet) light.

Once the gel is applied to the teeth the Zoom Advanced Power Chairside Lamp, helps accelerate the bleaching process. As the hydrogen peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin to bleach the stained substances, leaving the structure of the tooth unchanged.

Typically, the hydrogen peroxide gel is applied three to four times (depending on sensitivity), at intervals of 15 minutes. Immediately after the applications, a sensitivity-reducing fluoride paste-gel is applied to the teeth.
