Over years of use, teeth get stained for many reasons. Exposure to dark liquids like coffee and red wine, foods that we eat, smoking, medications, and aging can all contribute to yellowing teeth. Many find that having a discolored smile is very upsetting, and it impacts their overall confidence and self-esteem. That’s where professional whitening systems like ZOOM! come in.
What is ZOOM! Whitening?
The ZOOM! Whitening kit is a non-invasive hydrogen peroxide whitening treatment that’s performed in your dentist’s office. Each treatment takes about an hour to perform. First, a strong hydrogen peroxide gel is applied to the teeth. UV light is then used to help the peroxide whiten the teeth quickly, providing impressive whitening results that are long-lasting. Some patients have more than one treatment, while others are satisfied with just one ZOOM! session.
Does it Work?
Oh boy, does it! The ZOOM! Whitening system can get teeth up to eight shades whiter in just one session. Results vary depending on several factors, including the age and condition of the teeth. Patients should be at least 14 years old to undergo the treatment.
Most patients are very happy with the results. This is because ZOOM! is able to produce much “whiter” results than any home treatment kit. The results are typically long-lasting, as long as patients keep up good dental hygiene habits. At-home care instructions are given to patients to help optimized and maintain results.
Are There Any Downsides to ZOOM!?
Unfortunately, there are some patients that report that they experienced discomfort during their treatment. If you have sensitive teeth and gums, your procedure might be more uncomfortable than it is for others. Some patients are concerned about the UV light used in the procedure, but the lips and gums are covered to prevent harmful exposure during the treatment process. ZOOM! has been proven a safe option for patients all over the country, and should not be a cause for concern.
Is ZOOM! Right For You?
If you’re frustrated with whitening toothpaste or at-home trays because they don’t work or are just too difficult, it might be worth looking into a professional whitening option to restore your smile. And while DIY kits are cheaper than professional whitening, they don’t come close to the results from ZOOM!. Before you choose to undergo ZOOM! you will need to make sure you are a good candidate for the procedure and prepared to undergo the treatment. Most patients find that the cost of the procedure is well worth it for the results they receive, but it’s important to take your time and make sure ZOOM! is something you really want to move forward with.
