WHITENING - INCLUDING Zoom!
This is the procedure of making teeth whiter, and therefore more attractive. Our office uses several methods: Zoom!, passive tray whitening, and professional strength white strips.
Zoom! is a revolutionary tooth whitening procedure. It's safe, effective and fast, very fast. In just over an hour, your teeth will be dramatically whiter. The convenience of Zoom! in comparison to days of using strips or wearing trays makes it the perfect choice for the busy individual. The Zoom! Whitening procedure is simple. It begins with a short preparation to isolate your lips and gums. The clinician then applies the proprietary Zoom! whitening gel, which is activated by a specially designed light. Teeth typically become several shades whiter in the process. A fluoride treatment completes the procedure. Trays with gel are recommended afterward for maximum whitening and maintenance.
The tray method involves having impressions made from which fabricated custom trays are made. A carbamide peroxide gel is placed in these trays and the trays with gel are worn for about 3 hours, or overnight. The entire process takes several days of daily use. Three different strengths of gel may be used. However, the higher the strength of gel, the greater the likelihood of reactions or tooth sensitivity.
