Zoom teeth whitening is a well-known bleaching process for changing the color of your teeth. The Zoom hydrogen peroxide gel is applied right after covering your gums and lips. The gel remains there for 15 minutes. The Zoom chairside lamp gets activated during that period. That lamp focuses on all of your teeth, triggering a chemical reaction that whitens them.
The goal of this bleaching procedure is to lighten dentin and enamel discoloration. The technique is accelerated by the lamp utilized in this procedure. When hydrogen peroxide decomposes, oxygen can penetrate the dentin and enamel. It also bleaches the discolored areas while preserving the tooth’s structure.
You are given a Zoom house-use touch-up kit after the treatment. It contains some custom-fitted whitening trays. Our dentist guides you on how to use them.
There are certain food items and beverages that you cannot eat or drink for 72 hours after the treatment. Apart from that, the dentist may advise you to stop using some substances altogether, such as smoking. You must consume red wine, coffee, cola, tea, and other beverages in moderation.
