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
a 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.
