Whitening - Including Zoom!



This is the procedure of making teeth whiter, and therefore more attractive. Our office uses

several methods: Zoom!, passive tray whitening, and professional strength white strips. Zoom is

tooth whitening procedure. It's safe effective and fast, very fast. In just over an hour, your

teethwill bedramatically whiter. The convenience of Zoom! in comparison to days of using strips

or wearing trays makes it the perfect choice for the busy individual. The Zoom! Whitening

procedure iis simple.It begins with a short preparation to isolate your lips and gums. The

clinician then applies the proprietary Zoom whitening gel that is activated by a specially designed

light. Teeth typicallybecome at least six to ten shades whiter, sometimes more. A fluoride

treatment completes the procedure. You'll be amazed with the results. In most cases, teeth get

even whiter the first  few days after the procedure. Trays with gel are recommended afterward

for maximum whitening and maintenance. The tray method involves having impressions taken

from which laboratory fabricated custom vinyl trays are made. A carbamide peroxide gel is

placed inthesetrays and the trays with gel are worn for about 3 hours, or overnight. The entire

process takes 3-4 weeks of daily use.Three different strengths of gel may be used, however the

higher the strength the greater the likelihood of reactions or tooth sensitivity. The tray method

is recommended for badly stained teeth, such as tetracycline staining, and it may take

several months of use to see significant color improvement. For maintenance of whitened teeth

the trays should be used every several months. The end results whether using trays at home or

doing Zoom is the same.The cost of the tray method is compararble to Zoom, and there isusually

less post-treatment sensitivity.
