The Zoom! Procedure
The whole process takes up to an hour, but a regular teeth cleaning is recommended prior to the actual Zoom! teeth whitening session. The procedure begins with a short preparation to cover the lips and gums, leaving the teeth exposed. The dentist then applies the Zoom hydrogen peroxide whitening gel that works with the Zoom light to penetrate the teeth to disintegrate the stains and discoloration. The gel remains in place for 15 minutes with the light activated. During this time, you can relax, watch TV or listen to music, waiting for the gel to do its work.
The gel is applied for three 15-minute sessions of light activation, for a total treatment time of 45 minutes. Individuals with a concern of strong gag reflex or anxiety may have difficulty undergoing the entire process. Right after this, a sensitivity-reducing fluoride paste-gel is applied to the teeth.
