Zoom is an advanced teeth whitening solution known to be one of the most effective in today’s world of dentistry. Zoom is a type of laser teeth whitening that uses a photosensitive whitening gel that activates with the help of a laser. This produces excellent results quickly, making it the go-to solution for people with exceptionally tight schedules.
How is Zoom so effective?
The results produced by Zoom teeth whitening is far more superior compared to that of conventional teeth whitening. The secret to this lies in the constituents of the whitening gel itself. The gel contains 25% Hydrogen peroxide, which is one of the highest in any teeth whitening gel. Hydrogen peroxide is a bleaching agent that is widely used in teeth whitening procedures. Upon activation, it releases oxygen molecules that gently penetrate the porous structure of the teeth and bleach the staining particles. However, it doesn’t alter the structure of the tooth itself.
How is the procedure carried out?
The dentist thoroughly cleans the teeth and applies a rubber dam on them. This prevents the whitening gel from coming in contact with the gums or the tooth roots. The dentist applies the whitening gel to the teeth and spreads it evenly so that a consistent level of whitening is achieved. A high intensity Zoom laser is used to activate the gel, after which it produces a foam composed of oxygen molecules. The laser helps to speed up the process, which is how it can be completed in approximately 15 minutes. The gel will be rinsed off, and the process will be repeated to achieve a higher degree of whitening.
What are the advantages of Zoom?
- The results of Zoom whitening last for a considerably longer time in comparison to conventional whitening.
- The use of laser speeds up the process. It is one of the quickest teeth whitening procedures.
- Post the treatment, the teeth do not become increasingly sensitive to hot and cold foods, like in the case of conventional whitening.
