Home/tray based teeth whitening. ZOOM!2™ TOOTH WHITENING SYSTEM
How long does Zoom! Whitening take?
The complete procedure takes less than an hour. The procedure begins with a preparation period followed as little as by 45 minutes of bleaching. (A cleaning is recommended prior to the actual Zoom! whitening session.)
How does the Zoom! In-office system work?
The Zoom! light activated whitening gel's active ingredient is Hydrogen Peroxide. As the Hydrogen Peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, bleaching colored substances while the structure of the tooth is unchanged. The Zoom! light aids in activating the hydrogen peroxide and helps it penetrate the surface of the tooth. A study has shown that use of the Zoom! lamp increases the effectiveness of the Zoom! gel by 26% or more, giving an average improvement of up to eight shades.
What will I experience during the Zoom! In-Office Procedure?
During the procedure, patients may comfortably listen to music. Individuals with a strong gag reflex or anxiety may have difficulty undergoing the entire procedure.

On rare occasions, minor tingling sensations are experienced immediately after the procedure, but always dissipate. You can also ask your dentist to supply you with anti-sensitivity toothpaste for use prior to treatment.

Home Bleaching: Whiten Your Teeth at Home
Individualized instruction on how to have your teeth whitening solution will be provided. We'll make a model of your teeth and use that to create a customized mouth tray that fits comfortably in your mouth. The tray will hold a mild solution of whitening gel and you can control duration of bleaching by yourself.
How do at-home whiteners work?
Peroxide is the key ingredient in most whiteners. This safe-for-the-mouth bleaching agent forms bubbles on enamel that lift away stains. The higher the concentration of peroxide and the longer you leave it on your teeth, the whiter they'll get. The downside: Bleaching molecules can get trapped in nerve passageways, causing increased, though temporary, tooth sensitivity.
