Zoom! Whitening – What to Expect
- Posted on: Aug 28 2012
With so many teeth whitening options on the market today, how do you pick the one that is right for you? The Zoom! whitening system is used widely throughout the country and may likely be a good option for you. As you age your teeth will naturally stain and yellow. Smoking and drinking cola, coffee, tea, and red wine also lead to tooth discoloration. Dingy choppers make you look older than you are and whitening is a great way to look younger and more vibrant.
What makes Zoom! whitening unique? This whitening system uses the Zoom! Advanced Power Chairside Lamp, which activates and accelerates the 25% hydrogen-peroxide whitening agent. As the hydrogen-peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin bleaching stains, while still leaving the tooth structure unaffected. Your Zoom! treatment will begin with a short preparation to cover the lips and gums, leaving only the teeth exposed. Once the whitening gel is applied the light is activated for 15 minutes. This is repeated three times during each whitening session. The entire procedure takes about an hour and you walk out with a whiter, brighter smile.
Before you can begin any whitening treatment you must speak with your dentist first. This examination will help you and your dentist to determine which whitening treatment is best for you. You will also need very clean teeth so a dental hygiene visit should be scheduled before your whitening appointment. We’ll be happy to arrange both when you call.
Please contact cosmetic dentist Dr. John Highsmith in Asheville, NC today at 828-627-9282 to schedule your dental hygiene and Zoom! whitening appointments.
