Zoom Teeth Whitening

Zoom teeth whitening or Zoom! Advanced Power Whitening as it is currently marketed is an up to the minute whitening procedure. This procedure uses a special ‘Zoom Advanced Power’ lamp to heat and then activate the whitening gel.

This has the effect of stimulating the gel and increasing the rate of the whitening process which changing the structure of your teeth.

As with the Enlighten tooth whitening system, the dentist will use a stronger bleach solution, which is applied to your teeth. He or she will then use the Power lamp to heat the gel and so kick start the bleaching process.

This treatment can take less than an hour and results in a nice, white smile which is at least 10 shades lighter.

Can anyone have this treatment?

The initial consultation between you and the dentist is where he or she will determine your suitability for this procedure. Dentists will not recommend this treatment to pregnant women or women who are currently breastfeeding.

If you are currently undergoing chemotherapy or have a sensitivity to light in general then Zoom is not advisable.

And, if you are taking any prescribed medication or over the counter medicines which are light sensitive then check with your GP first.

If you are not suitable for this treatment then you will find that the dentist can suggest a good alternative.

I wear a denture, is it likely to damage this?

No. If you wear dentures, or have dental veneers or crowns then these will not be damaged by this treatment. They will also not react to the treatment either as Zoom only changes the colour of natural teeth.

If you have a veneer or a crown then you may be able to change this to a lighter coloured one to fit in with the rest of your teeth.

Will my teeth be white immediately after this treatment?

Some patients find that the results are instant and that they have white teeth after the one treatment. However, others find that they require further treatments to achieve this result.

Basically, if your teeth are heavily stained then you are likely to need more than one treatment.

Do I need ‘top up’ sessions?

Patients find that the results last a long time although teeth will start to discolour after a period of time. It’s a good idea to have ‘top up’ session, using a home based whitening kit, supported by regular visits to your dentist.

Following a good oral health routine such as cleaning your teeth twice a day can also help.

Other tooth whitening brands include Enlighten teeth whitening and BriteSmile teeth whitening. Other options include whitening toothpaste or a home whitening kit.
