Zoom teeth whitening is a whitening method that is commonly used in the nation and throughout the world to reduce enamel and dentin discolouration. Teeth can become stained by smoking, as well as by coffee, tea, cola, and red wine. As you age, it’s possible that your teeth pick up stains and darken. The Zoom in-office tooth whitening procedure uses a 25 percent hydrogen peroxide whitening solution that is activated by the Zoom Advanced Power Chairside Lamp. The lamp speeds up the bleaching process, during which oxygenteeth’s structural integrity by breaking down and preserving it at the same time.
Planning for consultation and treatment
Considering Zoom in-office teeth whitening? Your dentist will first need to give you a thorough examination of your teeth and gums to ensure that the treatment is right for you. Your dentist will also discuss your oral hygiene routine and lifestyle choices to determine whether you will benefit from whitening. This will make it easier for you and your dentist to decide on the best whitening method or product for you.
To achieve a better fit between the restoration and your natural dentition or following the removal of braces, your dentist may also insist that you undergo teeth whitening if you have any further cosmetic dental operations on the horizon, such as composite bonding or veneers. However, bleaching might not be your best choice, depending on your goals for changing the appearance of your smile and the state of your teeth.
During your consultation and evaluation, your dentist will also identify any existing dental work that won’t whiten with standard methods, including crowns and veneers.
The Zoom Method
A routine teeth cleaning is advised before the Zoom teeth whitening session, although the entire procedure takes less than an hour. Shortly before the treatment begins, the lips and gums are covered, leaving the teeth unprotected. The dentist or dental assistant next applies the Zoom hydrogen peroxide whitening gel. This gel works with the Zoom light to enter the teeth and dissolve stains and discolorations. While the light is turned on, the gel is left in place for 15 minutes. You can unwind, watch TV, or listen to music at this time.
For a 45-minute treatment, three 15-minute periods of light activation are used to apply the gel. A strong gag reaction or fear may make it difficult for some people to go through the entire operation. After that, the teeth are painted with a fluoride paste-gel to lessen sensitivity.
Following Treatment: Preserving Whitening Results
You will receive a Zoom at-home touch-up kit with whitening trays specially made for you. Use this touch-up kit as directed by your dentist, according to the right circumstances.
Your dentist might suggest that you stay away from or consume particular foods and drinks in moderation to prevent staining your teeth and help maintain the whitening results of your procedure. This includes things like cola, red wine, tea, and coffee.
Additionally, even after teeth-whitening procedures, cigarette products will discolor teeth. Your dentist will advise you to stop using them as a result. To prevent stains from reappearing, follow a proper oral hygiene routine (brushing and flossing) and schedule routine cleanings with your dentist and dental hygienist.
Your dentist could also advise using whitening toothpaste to maintain the effects of the procedure.
Some patients may experience sensitivity while receiving treatment. There isn’t much heat produced by the Zoom light, which is typically uncomfortable. Rarely, slight tingling may be felt right away after the treatment, but it always goes away. Before treatment, ask your dentist for an anti-sensitivity toothpaste to decrease sensitivity.
Zoom is not suggested for use by people who are under 13 years old, pregnant, or nursing, as it is with other teeth-whitening treatments. Additionally, it’s crucial to keep in mind that some people may not get the same results from whitening treatments as others. After a complete oral examination that includes a shade evaluation, only your dentist can decide if teeth whitening is the best option for you.

Cost and length of treatment
Zoom teeth whitening typically costs $500 (compared to other teeth whitening expenses); this price includes the extra take-home trays intended to maximize outcomes. Dental insurance does not usually pay for aesthetic dentistry procedures. As a result, most insurance plans have no impact on Zoom expenses.
Although the length of each treatment varies, the typical Zoom chair session lasts about an hour. Up to three 15-minute periods of light activation with the Zoom gel are used during this time. Your dentist will determine how many sessions you need based on the level of whiteness you want to achieve.
