Zoom! In-Office Teeth Whitening

How the Zoom! In-Office Whitening System Works

  • First, the dentist performs a comprehensive exam, which highlights any dental problems which need to be addressed before getting a whitening treatment. This ensures that the Zoom! teeth whitening procedure works as effectively as possible and prevents damage. If no such conditions are found, then our dentist performs a cleaning procedure to prime the teeth for the application of the whitening gel

  • Our dentist then inserts mouth spacers to prevent the cheeks or lips from coming into contact with the teeth. This step is necessary to protect the softer tissue from the whitening agent

  • Then, the teeth whitening gel is applied to the teeth; it consits of a hydrogen peroxide solution that serves as the active ingredient that whitens the teeth

  • After the gel is applied, our dentist focuses a bright ultraviolet light on the teeth. This light acts as a catalyst and causes oxygen to be produced through a chemical reaction within the gel. The oxygen permeates the upper layer of the teeth and bleaches them from within to remove the stains both on top and within the enamel

  • Afterward, our dentist cleans away the Zoom! whitening gel
