Zoom® whitening is advanced dental technology that quickly gives you a brilliant smile—in just one visit. At Optima Dental, Dr. Saleh or Dr. Shaer can reawaken the natural pigmentation in your teeth to get your smile its brightest.
What is Zoom Whitening?
This in-office whitening system uses professional-strength bleaching gel, along with an LED light to activate the gel and give the bleaching process a boost. After one visit, your smile can be up to eight shades lighter.
How Does It Work?
Before treatment starts, Dr. Saleh or Dr. Shaer will examine your teeth and gums to ensure they are healthy and ready for whitening. He or she will also look at the stains in your teeth to determine if bleaching gel is the right option for improving your smile.
Zoom whitening includes three 20-minute sessions.
- We will retract your cheeks and coat your gums with a protective gel.
- Bleaching gel will be brushed on your teeth.
- We will shine the Zoom light on your teeth for 20 minutes. The light activates the gel and helps it break down stains.
- After 20 minutes, we will remove the gel, rinse your teeth, and repeat the process until all three sessions are completed. Each whitening session breaks down stains to make your smile sparkle.
- Over the next few days, the color of your teeth will stabilize.
- We will give you a take-home Zoom whitening kit that includes customized bleaching trays and gel. For the next 14 days, you will continue the whitening process at home.
- Place a small amount of bleaching gel in the trays and wear them overnight.
- If you want your teeth even whiter, you can return to our office for another session.
- You will do periodic touch-ups at home to keep your smile bright.
