How Effective is Zoom Whitening?
Coffee, tea, cola, and wine can all stain your teeth, which tend to become darker over time without the added help of these liquids. If your teeth are no longer as white as they used to be, you might be curious about teeth whitening. Whitening treatments such as Zoom have become wildly popular as more people discover how easy and effective they can be.
Zoom is a professional whitening process that uses a powerful peroxide bleaching agent and a chairside lamp to break down the stains inside the tooth’s structure. Before your Zoom whitening treatment, you will need to schedule a consultation with Dr. Frame, during which he will examine your teeth and gums to ensure that this is the right treatment for you. We may also recommend a professional cleaning to remove any buildup that could affect your results.
The procedure is extremely effective and only takes about an hour. Immediately afterwards, teeth may be as much as eight to ten shades lighter. We will apply a special fluoride treatment to protect your enamel and reduce the risk of sensitivity. Avoid drinking or eating anything that could leave new stains on your teeth for at least a few days after whitening treatment. They could be more porous than usual immediately afterwards and stain more easily.
Although Zoom is one of the most effective ways to whiten your smile, it is not necessarily the right choice for every patient. Call our office today to schedule your consultation with Dr. Frame and find out if it is right for you.
