Zoom! Tooth Whitening System
Tooth change colour inevitably due to ageing, excessive use of red wine, drinks containing caffeine, tobacco smoke and having been given the antibiotic tetracycline as a child.
Zoom! tooth whitening is a bleaching method which gives effective, quick and safe results. This method is recommended when the patient is looking to get rid of unpleasant grey or yellow shade developed on the hard surface called enamel. The full procedure is very short, taking around 45 minutes in total including the whitening procedure and a professional cleaning routine, which is recommended before starting the bleaching.
The main ingredient of Zoom! whitening gel is Hydrogen Peroxide. During the treatment, this chemical is divided using a special light and the oxygen which is produced in the process affects the discoloured areas without damaging the dental enamel.
The results of the treatment are likely to be visible for the rest of the patient's life, provided that a high level of dental hygiene is maintained, including brushing, flossing and regular visits to the dentist. In addition to that, the patient can use special dental care products that are designed to help the white colour last longer and are applied occasionally onto the surface of the tooth.
Even though people are generally sceptical about dental bleaching procedures, studies have revealed that whitening is considered to be one of the least dangerous procedures in dentistry. However, tooth whitening products including Zoom! are not recommended for pregnant or lactating women and children under 13 years of age. Increased sensitivity of the teeth or a tingling sensation may occur in some cases during or after the Zoom! whitening treatment, but should fade shortly after the procedure.This treatment is available to most individuals, but the results may not be as good or last as long in some cases. Therefore, patients are recommended to consult a dentist before deciding to have the treatment.
