Zoom Teeth Whitening
Zoom is a teeth whitening procedure that is broadly used throughout Australia and around the world to brighten discolouration of the enamel and dentin. The Zoom in-office teeth whitening procedure uses the Zoom Advanced Power Chairside Lamp to accelerate the bleaching process by activating the 25 percent hydrogen peroxide gel. As the hydrogen peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin to bleach the discolouration leaving the tooth structure unchanged.
Treatment Planning and Consultation
Before deciding whether Zoom teeth whitening procedure is right for you, the dentist will conduct a comprehensive examination of your gums and teeth to ensure proper health. In addition, he/she may talk with you about your oral hygiene and lifestyle habits to determine if you will benefit from the treatment. This will come in handy when deciding on which technique or whitening product that is best for you.
Additionally, you may be required to undergo whitening if you are planning to get other cosmetic procedures such as composite bonding or veneers to ensure a better match between your natural dentition and the restoration.
Zoom Teeth Whitening Procedure
Zoom Teeth Whitening is painless. However, you may experience some tingling sensation or slight sensitivity. Fortunately, this mild discomfort usually goes away within a day. The complete process takes about 45 to 60 minutes. Here are the three main steps that take place during the procedure;
Step 1: Teeth Cleaning and Examination
The dentist will first examine your teeth and clean them out before the procedure. It is crucial to remove the plaque and food particles stuck between the teeth as it can affect the final look of the whitening.
Step 2: Retractor Placement and Preventive Measures
After the cleaning, the dentist will then place a retractor in your mouth to cover your lips and gums to expose the teeth only. Additionally, this mouth brace/ retractor will help to keep your mouth wide open throughout the procedure to protect your lips from chemical damage. As a matter of fact, the mouth brace is meant to ensure maximum comfort and less sensitivity during the procedure.
Moreover, apart from applying gum coating to protect your gums against the chemicals, most dentists will recommend wearing protective glasses to protect your eyes from the UV rays.
Step 3: Zoom! – Lights, Gel, Action
The procedure comprises three sessions. The first session is the application of the whitening gel, which takes about 15 minutes. In fact, the hydrogen peroxide gel is applied for three sessions of Zoom light activation. It remains in place to work for those 15 minutes while the Zoom light gets activated. The dentist will remove the gel after every session and reapply a fresh layer.
As mentioned earlier, the Zoom light breaks down the hydrogen peroxide, thus allowing oxygen to penetrate the enamel as well as dentin. As a result, it whitens any discolouration and breaks up the tough stains on your teeth. The results of this procedure are very visible as it is possible to achieve up to eight shades lighter.
