If you have watched television makeover shows or looked through glossy magazines, it is likely that you would have seen the results of the amazing Zoom! whitening treatment. This advanced form of whitening has taken the world of dentistry by storm and is one of the most popular systems for improving tooth colour.
Zoom! whitening is a highly effective, fast-acting treatment which can transform teeth into a radiant set of pearly whites in just an hour. Zoom! is a professional in-chair whitening treatment so results will be both quicker and more effective that those you can achieve with home whitening kits.
The Zoom! whitening system uses a whitening agent which is activated by rays of light. A bleaching agent, containing Hydrogen Peroxide, is first applied to the teeth and a light beam then directed onto the teeth for a period of approximately 45 minutes. The teeth will be cleaned thoroughly before the treatment and the whole procedure should take less than one hour. During the procedure you will be asked to wear protective eyewear.
Zoom! whitening treatment lightens the teeth by several shades and most patients are able to achieve a result of between 6 to 10 shades lighter.
Your teeth will look whiter than normal for a long period of time, but sadly the results do not last indefinitely and it is advisable to top up treatment or use professional whitening products to keep your smile looking bright and white. Your dentist will advise you about follow-up treatment. It is worth noting that certain factors contribute to tooth discolouration, such as smoking, poor oral hygiene and drinking strongly coloured drinks regularly.
Tooth whitening is one of the safest and least invasive cosmetic treatments on the market today, when it is carried out by a trained professional. Zoom! whitening is a safe and quick procedure, able to give your teeth an instant glow. It is normal to experience mild sensitivity and a faint tingling sensation following the procedure, but this will soon pass and you can enjoy the benefits of a sparkling smile.
