Dalby Dental and Cosmetic Practice - Zoom!

ZOOM Professional Whitening System

AS SEEN ON ABC's HIT PROGRAM “EXTREME MAKEOVER”

We use ZOOM Professional Whitening System. This in office whitening system will make your teeth dramatically whiter in about an hour. The procedure is simple. It begins with a short preparation to cover your lips and gums, leaving only your teeth exposed. We then apply the whitening gel, which was designed to be used with a specially designed light.

The ZOOM light and gel work together to gently penetrate your teeth, breaking up stains and discoloration. With proper care your smile will sparkle for years.

WHO MAY BENEFIT FROM TOOTH WHITENING?

Almost anyone. However, treatment may not be as effective for some as it is for others. The Dentist can determine if you are a viable candidate for this procedure through a thorough oral exam, including a shade assessment.

DO MANY PEOPLE WHITEN THEIR TEETH?

More people that you might imagine. A bright sparkling smile can make a big difference for everyone.

IS WHITENING SAFE?

Yes. Extensive research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth under the supervision of a dentist is safe. In fact, many dentists consider whitening the safest cosmetic dental procedure available. As with any tooth whitening product, ZOOM is not recommended for children under 13 years of age and pregnant or lactating women.

HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS LAST?

By following some simple post whitening care instructions, your teeth will always be lighter than they were before. To keep your teeth looking their best, we recommend flossing, brushing twice daily and occasional maintenance with ZOOM weekender of Nite White gel.

HOW DOES THE ZOOM IN OFFICE SYSTEM WORK?

The ZOOM light activated whitening gel's active ingredient is Hydrogen Peroxide. As the Hydrogen Peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentist, bleaching colored substances while the structure of the tooth is unchanged. The ZOOM light aids in activating the hydrogen peroxide and helps it penetrate the surface of the tooth. A study has shown that use of the ZOOM lamp increases the effectiveness of the ZOOM gel by 26% or more, giving an average improvement of eight shades.

WHAT DOES A PATIENT EXPERIENCE DURING THE ZOOM IN-OFFICE PROCEDURE?

During the procedure, patients may comfortably watch television or listen to music, individuals with a strong gag reflex or anxiety may have difficulty undergoing the entire procedure.

HOW IS EXPOSURE TO THE ZOOM LIGHT CONTROLLED?

The ZOOM procedure requires that all soft tissue in and around the mouth be protected. The Dentist is required to monitor the procedure to insure any exposed skin or tissue is isolated and protected. Protective eyewear is required during the procedure.

Light sensitive individuals, including those undergoing PUVA therapy (Psoralen + UV Radiation or other photochemotherapy. or patients with melanoma, should not undergo the ZOOM in-office procedure.

Also, patients taking any light sensitive drugs or substances, whether over the counter, prescription or homeopathic, should consult their primary care physician prior to the procedure.

Anyone who is not eligible for ZOOM chair side whitening for these reasons may be an excellent candidate for ZOOM take-home.

HOW LONG DOES ZOOM CHAIRSIDE WHITENING TAKE?

The complete procedure takes less than an hour. The procedure begins with a preparation period followed as little as by 45 minutes of bleaching. (A cleaning is recommended prior to the actual ZOOM whitening session.)

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?

Sensitivity during the treatment may occur with some patients. The ZOOM light generates minimal heat which is the usual source of discomfort. On rare occasions, minor tingling sensations are experienced immediately after the procedure, but always dissipate.
