Zoom! Teeth Whitening Frequently Asked Questions
Does Zoom! Teeth Whitening hurt?
This is the first question answered because it is in fact one of the most commonly asked questions that we get. Most patients have a question about tooth sensitivity related to teeth whitening because they have “heard through the grapevine” that it often accompanies teeth whitening treatments. In reality, this isn’t the case. Tooth sensitivity occurs due to the dehydration of the tooth. Thousands of tiny channels in the dentin layer of the tooth called “tubules” are dried out during a tooth whitening treatment, which can cause some sensitivity in individuals. Using a toothpaste with a sensitivity formula is helpful to some patients who experience tooth sensitivity after whitening. This sensitivity is almost always minor, and dissipates quickly.
How does Zoom! Whitening work?
Zoom! Whitening gel has hydrogen peroxide, a powerful bleaching agent, as an active ingredient that is assisted by a specialized light that helps to activate the hydrogen peroxide’s whitening mechanisms. The bleaching agents penetrate the enamel and dentin layers of the tooth and remove the stains in these layers.
How long does the treatment process take?
The entire Zoom! Teeth Whitening treatment takes approximately an hour from start to finish and is accomplished entirely in-office. There are various steps in the treatment process but each step is less than 30 minutes in duration.
How long do Zoom! Whitening results last?
By following all of the post-whitening treatment directions, teeth treated with Zoom! Whitening will remain whiter than teeth left untreated. Dr. Kelley Fisher offers suplemental products to enhance and prolong the effects of Zoom! Teeth Whitening as well.
