We all want perfect teeth and a bright smile, and this can be achieved easily with affordable and effective ways. ZOOM whitening treatment is recommended and supervised by the specialist and minimizes stress and the risks to patients, ensuring teeth whitening with up to nine shades in 60 minutes.
How is ZOOM whitening done?
A whitening session with ZOOM consists of: presentation of the procedure by the dentist, photos before and after the procedure, isolation of soft tissues and application of the gel, which is the bleaching procedure itself. The process requires a dental cleaning, ultrasound scaling and Airflow brushing, to prepare the teeth.
The main ingredient of the special bleaching gel is hydrogen peroxide. It is applied to the tooth enamel on its vestibular face and under the action of ZOOM plasma lamp it releases oxygen, which cleans the inner teeth enamel.
The application of the ZOOM gel is done in 4 sessions of 15 minutes. ZOOM whitening is a comfortable procedure for the patient due to the minimal heat generation and protection provided to soft tissues. In addition, continued medical attention eliminates any complications that may occur in the short or long term, as it is often happening with home bleaching. The effects of whitening can be instantly noticed, and depending on the patient’s eating habits, they can resist up to a few years after the whitening is done.
At the end of the whitening process, the patients are given FREE protection creams and substances for home care, which are applied on the teeth to reduce sensitivity and to protect them from food coloring.
Is teeth whitening for everyone?
Teeth whitening is recommended to any healthy person over the age of 16, because until that point the tooth pulp is developing and there is a risk of irritation or increased sensitivity. Spectacular bleaching results can be obtained especially when there are yellow spots due to the aging of the enamel, smoking, coffee and wine or other food colorants.
Like any whitening product, ZOOM will not whiten opaque materials such as porcelain, composite or acrylic.
In the case of patients with dental diseases that occur during the period of formation and development of dental tissues: hypoplasia, hyperplasia, developmental anomalies and eruptions; tooth color changes, gray spots from Tetracycline treatment or other medications. In these cases we strongly recommend the use of dental veneers, instead of teeth whitening.
Teeth bleaching should be avoided by pregnant women and nursing mothers, patients receiving treatment for serious illness or condition, patients with light sensitivity, or taking photosynthetic drugs, or even homeopathic treatment. However, if you wish to do this, please ask your dentist beforehand, who will recommend the best strategy to follow, depending on your needs.
The benefits of ZOOM are obvious: it is an easy procedure, it acts rapidly with great results in only 60 minutes, decreased teeth sensitivity due to low H2O2 concentration (only 25%) and perfect soft tissue protection.
For patients whose teeth remain hypersensitive to hot and cold food or citrus fruits, even after a few days after the procedure, we recommend to apply special creams with bio-available sources of calcium and phosphate without fluoride. Immediately after the whitening procedure it is recommended to avoid consumption of intensely colored products such as coffee, tobacco, tea, red wine or chocolate, which may affect the porous structure of the tooth.
Safety: Extensive research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth under the supervision of a Zoom trained and accredited dentist not only gives you the whitest teeth, it’s also very safe. Actually, most signs of significant enamel deterioration associated with bleaching products have been reported in cases of bleaching at home or uncontrolled by the dentist. Professional whitening should not be done every year because the effects on the enamel are cumulative and thus excessive use of bleaching products is not necessary.
