Teeth whitening is one of the most preferred cosmetic dental procedures that can significantly impact the aesthetics of your smile. Although conventional teeth whitening using hydrogen peroxide gel has been the go-to solution for many years now, the advancements in dentistry have allowed us to get our hands on some of the more sophisticated and highly effective procedures. One such example is Zoom teeth whitening.
What are the causes of teeth staining?
- Irregular or improper oral hygiene (brushing and flossing teeth)
- Consuming a lot of beverages such as tea, coffee, red wine, aerated drinks, etc.
- Smoking cigarettes or chewing tobacco
- Excessive wear of the teeth
What is Zoom?
Zoom is a state-of-the-art teeth whitening solution that makes use of a photosensitive teeth whitening gel that is activated using a laser. It is highly preferred by both patients and dentists as it offers excellent results in a very short span of time. Also, the effect of the whitening lasts for an impressively long time.
Why is Zoom better than other alternatives?
The inclusion of a laser in the teeth whitening procedure makes it more advanced. Since the gel is photosensitive, activating it using the laser helps to speed up the process and readily release oxygen molecules. They enter the porous structure of the enamel and bleach the staining particles within a few minutes, after which the gel can be rinsed off. The procedure leaves the teeth looking much whiter after the procedure.
Another difference between Zoom and conventional teeth whitening procedures is the gel used for the treatment. Zoom uses a 25% Hydrogen Peroxide gel, which is highly effective. Depending on the severity of the condition, the dentist may repeat the procedure. It would be completed within 30 to 45 minutes, and you’d have sparkling white teeth at the end of the course.
