Frequently Asked Questions
- What causes tooth discoloration?
- The most common causes of discoloration would include aging and consumption of staining substances such as coffee, tea, colas, tobacco, red wine, and smoking cigarettes.
- How long does Zoom Teeth Whitening take?
- The complete procedure takes less than an hour. The process begins with a preparation period followed by about 45 minutes of bleaching. A cleaning is usually recommended prior to the actual Zoom session.
- How does the Zoom Whitening In-office system work?
- Zoom light activated gel contains the active ingredient Hydrogen Peroxide. As the Hydrogen Peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel bleaching colored substances and leaving the structure of the tooth unchanged. We use the Zoom light which aids in activating the hydrogen peroxide and helps it to penetrate the surface of the tooth.
- How long does the teeth whitening last?
- To keep your teeth looking their best, we recommend flossing and brushing twice daily. We’d also urge you to try occasional touch-ups with Zoom Weekender or Nite White gel which are professional formula products designed to keep your teeth their brightest and are only available from a dental professional. By following some simple post care instructions, your teeth will shine brighter, longer.
- Are there any side effects?
- Sensitivity during the treatment may occur with some patients. The Zoom light generates a minimal amount of heat which is the most common source of discomfort. On rare occasions, minor tingling sensations are experienced after the procedure but will dissipate. You can also ask for an anti-sensitivity toothpaste you can use prior to your treatment.
- Is tooth whitening safe?
- Yes. Extensive research and clinical studies indicate that teeth whitening is safe under the supervision of a dental professional. It is important to follow all of the directions carefully, as improper or overuse could result in irritation. Zoom is not recommended for children under 13 years of age or women who are pregnant or nursing.
