Teeth Whitening Q & A

What is Zoom! teeth whitening?

Zoom! teeth whitening is a highly effective in-office teeth whitening system that provides noticeable, natural-appearing results in under an hour. Zoom! teeth whitening uses a high-performance whitening gel that removes even the toughest stains and discoloration. The powerful whitening gel is effective at removing discoloration caused by smoking, age, tooth injuries, and stain-causing foods like coffee, red wine, and blueberries. With Zoom! teeth whitening, you can lighten your teeth up to eight shades with one treatment. 

How is Zoom! teeth whitening performed?

At Ramona Family Dentistry, teeth whitening begins with a preliminary evaluation and cleaning. Your teeth and gums are checked for common concerns like tooth decay and gum inflammation. If the team identifies any oral health concerns, it’s best to treat those issues prior to getting your teeth whitened. Once the evaluation is over, your teeth are cleaned and prepped for the whitening treatment. 

Your lips and gums are lips are covered leaving only your teeth exposed. Your dentist then applies the high-performance Zoom! whitening gel and positions you under a specialized light that emits a blue wavelength. The light is left to activate the bleaching ingredients for about 20 minutes before another layer of whitening gel is applied. This process is repeated until the desired results are achieved. Once the procedure is over, your dentist applies a protective sealant to reduce sensitivity. 

Is Zoom! teeth whitening safe?

The Zoom! teeth whitening system allows your dentist to brighten your smile without affecting the health of your teeth. Some patients experience minor sensitivity during or following the treatment, but it is typically short-lived and causes no long-term effects on the health of your teeth and gums. The Zoom! teeth whitening gel is designed to provide effective stain removal, while producing little to no sensitivity. 

To maintain your results, it’s best to avoid smoking and consuming teeth-staining foods. Good oral hygiene habits like brushing and flossing regularly also help keep your smile bright and healthy. With proper oral hygiene and regular dentist visits, Zoom! teeth whitening provides long-lasting results.
