As with any tooth whitening product, Zoom! is not recommended for children under 18 years of age and pregnant or lactating women.
Do the results last a long time?
By following some simple post-whitening care instructions, your teeth will always be lighter than they were before. We recommend flossing, brushing twice daily with Zoom! Whitening Toothpaste, and touch-ups with Zoom! take-home gel. These are professional formula products designed specifically to keep your teeth their brightest.
How does the Zoom! In-Office System work?
The Zoom! light-activated whitening gel’s active ingredient is Hydrogen Peroxide. As Hydrogen Peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, bleaching any colored substance while keeping the structure of the tooth unchanged. The Zoom! light aids in activating the Hydrogen Peroxide and helps it penetrate the surface of the tooth.
Are there any side effects?
Some people experience temporary increased tooth sensitivity to cold during treatment. These symptoms disappear within 1-3 days after interruption or completion of the treatment.
How long is the teeth whitening procedure?
The entire procedure takes just about one and a half hours. The procedure begins with a preparation period followed by one hour of bleaching. (we recommend a cleaning prior to the actual Zoom! Whitening session).
