Zoom whitening, a newer teeth whitening system offered by our Los Angeles Zoom whitening expert, uses a patented formula and activation system for faster, longer-lasting results. Performed in sessions lasting less than an hour each, Zoom whitening results often continue to appear in the days afterwards. Here is more about how Zoom whitening works, who may be a candidate and how our dentist performs the procedure.
Zoom whitening uses a combination of carbamide peroxide-based bleaching gel and light activation to turn teeth as many as ten shades whiter in one appointment. The whitening compounds bleach superficial stains associated with smoking, consumption of heavily pigmented foods and other lifestyle factors. While many patients achieve their desired shade in one visit to our expert in Zoom whitening in Los Angeles, patients who want even brighter results can schedule additional visits until they are satisfied.
Zoom Whitening Los Angeles
As a minimally invasive procedure, Zoom whitening is an option for the majority of patients with teeth marred by yellow or brown stains resulting from lifestyle factors. Zoom whitening is not recommended for those with teeth suffering from blue or gray discoloration caused by internal decay or other causes. Patients who have porcelain veneers, tooth-colored fillings or major bridge work are less likely to get optimal results from Zoom whitening treatment.
Our Los Angeles Zoom whitening expert performs Zoom whitening in hour-long appointments, each consisting of multiple bleaching cycles. During the visit, our dentist protects oral tissues with a barrier before applying the patented bleaching gel and activating it with a special light. After letting the gel work for 15 to 20 minutes, our dentist cleans the gel off of the teeth and repeats the process. Finally, our dentist treats the teeth with fluoride to prevent post-whitening sensitivity.
Patients may experience tingling sensations after undergoing Zoom whitening, but this is only temporary. By contrast, treated teeth can remain whiter for several months afterwards. With daily brushing and flossing and regular visits to our dentist for check-ups, patients can help their Zoom whitening results last longer. A consultation with our expert in Zoom whitening in Los Angeles can provide more information about Zoom whitening benefits and candidacy.
