Zoom! In Office Whitening
With so many teeth whitening products available on the Denver dental market today, it’s easy to get confused about which product is right for you. Below, we will explore the process of Zoom Whitening.
About Zoom Whitening
Why Zoom whitening? Over-the-counter teeth whitening products are not customized to each customer’s needs. With Zoom, the process is always tailored to each client’s needs by a dentist. You’ll receive just the right duration and light intensity when you undergo the procedure in your Denver dentist’s office.
What Causes Teeth to Discolor in the First Place?
Tooth discoloration can have a number of causes. The most common include consuming a lot of deeply-colored foods and drinks such as coffee, tea, cola, berries or red wine. Teeth can also become discolored by smoking, from some medications, aging, and trauma.
Is the Zoom Process Safe?
Yes — very. Studies have shown teeth whitening with hydrogen peroxide or carbamide under the supervision of a dentist or dental professional is completely safe for your teeth and gums.
Are There Any Side Effects?
The most common potential side effect of teeth whitening is gum or tooth sensitivity. Check with your dentist to ensure you’re an ideal candidate for Zoom whitening. If you select to use at-home Zoom whitening products, consult your dentist to make sure you’re using the correct concentration of whitening formula. You can be assured that at-home Zoom whitening products include two mild desensitizing agents, ACP (Amorphous Calcium Phosphate) and potassium nitrate to help minimize tooth and gum sensitivity.
How Long Will My Results Last?
Your whitening treatments will help to reduce existing staining and discoloration; but smoking, continuing to consume dark foods and drinks, and the natural process of aging can cause your staining and discoloration again. Zoom maintenance whitening treatments can help to combat recurring teeth discoloration.
How Long Does the Zoom Process Take?
With the Zoom whitening process, your teeth will look noticeably whiter in just one day. With an in-office treatment, you can achieve results up to eight shades whiter in just 45 minutes. If used as instructed, you can achieve the same excellent whitening results at home within one to two weeks.
