What is Zoom Teeth Whitening?

Zoom Teeth Whitening is a bleaching system designed to lighten the discoloration of enamel and dentin. The treatment is performed in-office, and combines the application of a hydrogen-peroxide based gel with the “Zoom Advanced Power Chairside Lamp,” a UV device which accelerates the bleaching process of the peroxide.

How does Zoom Teeth Whitening work?

The idea is that as the hydrogen peroxide gel is broken down by the rays of the Zoom lamp, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin of the tooth to bleach any stains while leaving the structure of the tooth intact. The entire process takes less than an hour when performed by a qualified professional.

Can I smoke after Zoom Whitening?

Yes, you can smoke 48 hours after teeth whitening, but it will stain your teeth. This procedure doesn’t prevent your teeth from staining. It whitens your teeth. It’s up to you to make good choices about avoiding activities, foods, and drinks that are likely to stain your teeth.

Can I do Zoom Whitening on cavities and crowns?

No. Zoom treatment cannot whiten any foreign material. It is designed to whiten only tooth enamel. It is better to whiten your teeth before having a cavity filled so you can match that dental work to the new shade of your teeth. The same goes for a crown. You want to get a crown that blends with the color of your newly whitened teeth. If you are due to have a cavity filled, a crown put on or any other dental work performed, talk to your dentist about your interest in the Zoom whitening procedure.
