Zoom teeth whitening is a treatment that removes stubborn teeth stains giving the smile an everlasting brightness. It’s a modern technology that relies on using blue light to activate the bleaching chemicals. Unlike traditional whitening, zoom teeth whitening is effective and time-efficient.
If you’re interested in this treatment, here’s all you need to know before you opt for the treatment.
6 Quick facts about zoom teeth whitening
1- It’s a quick procedure
Zoom teeth whitening is a very quick procedure that makes it suitable for last-minute plans. Typically at Dentakay, we’d run a comprehensive examination of your mouth before going for treatment. This is to make sure your gums and teeth are in good health to prevent any complications.
Our dentists at Dentakay will also ask you questions about your lifestyle and hygiene; this helps us customize your zoom teeth whitening. If your oral health is suitable for the procedure, your dentist will begin treatment.
2- There’s a teeth cleaning session beforehand
A tooth cleaning session is important to remove any plaque build-up. It’s a method that sets up the foundations for zoom teeth whitening and ensures the best results.
3- Zoom teeth whitening is not more than an hour long
The procedure is not more than an hour-long where your doctor will first start by covering the lips and gums. Next comes the application of hydrogen peroxide, a whitening gel, to your teeth. Exposing the gel to the zoom light activates it and allows it to penetrate the enamel to break down stains. You can relax, watch TV, or listen to music during this time. Overall the procedure could vary between 30 minutes to an hour.
4- The treatment is divided into sessions
You finish the treatment in one sitting, but within a treatment, you’ll do three sessions. Each session is 15 minutes long, and you may need anywhere between 2 and 3 sessions. A session is where your doctor applies the gel and exposes it to zoom light. After 15 minutes, your doctor will re-apply the gel and expose it to zoom light again.
5- You will need a fluoride paste gel for sensitivity
After treatment is over, our doctors at Dentakay will apply a fluoride paste gel to reduce sensitivity following treatment with zoom teeth whitening. Temporary sensitivity is a common side effect post-application. But you can reduce this by softly brushing your teeth and rinsing with lukewarm water. Stay away from cold and hot drinks for a few days.
6- It is not for everyone
This treatment isn’t right for pregnant women and women who are lactating. Aside from this, not everyone could benefit from the treatment. Our dentists at Dentakay will run a shade assessment to let you know if you are suitable for the treatment. You can also contact our consultants. We’ll get in touch with you right away and let you know if you are a suitable candidate for zoom teeth whitening.
If the procedure isn’t right for you, you should consider veneers as they will give your smile a major makeover. Veneers can cover the deepest stains and deformities affecting the teeth.
Zoom teeth whitening results and aftercare
After undergoing Zoom teeth whitening, it is important to take proper care of your teeth to ensure the best results and maintain the whitening effect. Here are some aftercare tips:
- Avoid consuming colored food and drinks: For the first 48 hours after the procedure, avoid consuming colored food and drinks such as coffee, tea, red wine, tomato sauce, and berries. These items can stain your teeth and reduce the whitening effect.
- Avoid smoking and tobacco products: Smoking and tobacco products can also cause discoloration and stain your teeth. It is best to avoid them for at least 48 hours after the procedure.
- Brush and floss regularly: Brush and floss your teeth regularly to maintain good oral hygiene and prevent staining.
- Use a sensitivity toothpaste: Some people may experience sensitivity after the Zoom whitening procedure. If this happens, use a sensitivity toothpaste to help reduce any discomfort.
- Avoid acidic and abrasive toothpaste: Avoid using acidic and abrasive toothpaste for at least 48 hours after the procedure as they can cause further sensitivity and damage to your teeth.
- Follow up with your dentist: Schedule a follow-up appointment with your dentist to ensure that your teeth are healthy and the whitening procedure was successful.
By following these aftercare tips, you can ensure that your Zoom teeth whitening results last longer and maintain a brighter, healthier smile.
