We all love a beautiful smile. Having a sparkling, white smile projects confidence and can make you look younger. As the years go by, our teeth pick up stains that detract from our appearance and make us look older. Zoom whitening not only gets rid of those stains but will actually whiten the natural pigment in your teeth to a bright, sparkling smile.
Here at Arnold Dental we have two whitening procedures. Zoom whitening, which we discuss on this page, is done in the office. You may click here to learn more about at-home whitening. The main differences are that the Zoom procedure is faster and more expensive, while the at-home whitening gives you more control.
How Zoom Whitening Works
The procedure is fairly simple.
First we’ll use retractors and napkins. These are designed to cover and protect your lips and to keep them out of the way so that the light can shine on your teeth.
The next step is to protect your gums. To do this we’ll place a rubbery coating. The Zoom gel is particularly strong, and this will allow the gel to penetrate your teeth without causing any irritation to your gums. Once your gums are protected, it’s time to place the gel on your teeth.
We’ll use a special light that is designed to help activate the whitening gel. This is what makes Zoom work faster.
|We’ll do three fifteen-minute sessions with the light. When we’re done, you’ll have a brilliant white smile.|
For the most effective results, we recommend combining Zoom with at-home tray bleaching. We like to have you use the tray method at home for a week, come in for your Zoom appointment, and then continue with the tray at home for another week. If you’re ready to whiten your teeth quickly, you may call our office to schedule an appointment. Or, if you prefer, you may click here to request an appointment online.
