Zoom is a popular in-office bleaching treatment used to lighten enamel discoloration. Before the procedure, you will have regular professional teeth cleaning to get rid of plaque and tartar.

Teeth Whitening Bellflower

The dentist will use cheek retractors and cotton rolls to protect your gums, tongue, and other soft tissues from the chemicals. A protective layer will also be painted on your gums before the whitening starts.

Once your teeth are exposed, your dentist will apply the whitening gel, and allow it to remain in place for 15 minutes. During this time, the Zoom light will be used to activate the gel so it penetrates the tooth enamel to remove the discoloration. As the treatment progresses, you can listen to music, watch TV, or just relax.

A full Zoom whitening treatment requires 3-4, 15-minute meetings, so the treatment takes a maximum of one hour. When the treatment is complete, the dentist will apply a fluoride gel to reduce tooth sensitivity.

Zoom whitening is not recommended for expectant and lactating women, as well as children under 13 years, though there are no documented effects. It is just a safety precaution because the zoom light produces some heat that may cause discomfort or sensitivity during the treatment. Any sensitivity can be easily managed using anti-sensitivity toothpaste before the procedure.

To determine whether Zoom in-office bleaching is right for you, we recommend that you schedule a comprehensive examination with our dentist to ensure that your teeth and gums are in proper health. Make an appointment at 562-867-2026
