How Zoom Whitening Can Impact Your Smile

It’s a fact: Whiter teeth make you look more attractive and healthier, and those are only two of the reasons behind teeth whitening’s popularity. At Athol Family Dentists, we know that many people also choose to undergo the process because it minimizes stains or discolorations, and because it’s a quick and highly effective way to brighten your smile.

How Does Zoom! Teeth Whitening Work?

Zoom! is a method of in-office teeth whitening that can lighten your teeth by up to 10 shades by reversing tooth discoloration caused by:

  • Drinking coffee/tea/red wine
  • Smoking
  • Aging
  • Poor oral hygiene.

After applying a potent hydrogen peroxide solution to your teeth, your dental professional uses the Zoom! Advanced Power Chairside Lamp three times for 15 minutes each to speed up the bleaching process. This step activates the oxygen molecules in the hydrogen peroxide, which penetrate your teeth and dissolve stains.

The procedure takes less than an hour to complete, but for best results, it’s recommended that you have regular teeth cleanings to get the most out of your session. Once your dentist has confirmed that your teeth are ready to be whitened and the procedure has taken place, you’ll be sent home with a whitening tray kit for touch-ups, and your dentist will instruct you on when and how often to use it.
