Did you know that you can whiten your teeth in just one hour? Unless you have been living under a rock for the past 10 years, you must have come across a teeth-whitening product at one point or another. Whether in the form of toothpastes, teeth whitening kits or dental whitening strips, you can hardly miss them these days. Despite its ubiquity, you may not be fully convinced to try teeth whitening out for yourself. There can be many reasons, but if you’re like most skeptics, you may be unsure about the results – and the time and hassle it takes to achieve them. As more and more socially active people find themselves being time-poor, the idea of spending weeks or months on end using a certain product to achieve unknown results may not be the most appealing option. So is there a better way to get a bright smile without the hefty time investment? Let’s find out.
Not All Teeth Whitening Products are Created Equal
From the onset, it must be established that not all teeth whitening products are created equal. And not all of them will deliver the results as advertised. There are a myriad of over-the-counter whitening products to choose from. Many, if not all, will require some form of discipline on your part to achieve the desired degree of shade reduction.
In the case of a take-home whitening kit, you would need to wear a gel-infused retainer for longer and/or multiple periods. Other methods include regular brushing or rinsing with specially formulated whitening products. Dental strips are basically adhesive plasters that stick to the surface of the teeth to literally “strip” away the stains upon removal. While all these products promise varying degrees of whiteness, none can compare to the speed and efficacy of the in-clinic teeth whitening method.
The Zoom Whitening Treatment
Notably, the Zoom whitening treatment is a simple chairside method that offers up to an 8 shade reduction within a one-hour treatment. Using the specialized Zoom activating LED light to oxidize the whitening gel that is applied to the surface of your teeth, the Zoom method has been known to effectively remove stains with dramatic results.
During the treatment, the cosmetic dentist would first separate and shield your gums and lips from the bleaching agent by applying a special sheet or protective gel. The bleaching agent, infused with about 15-35% of Hydrogen Peroxide ingredient, would be applied next. Once the thick layer of peroxide gel evenly covers the surface of your teeth, the dentist would activate the gel using a UV-laser lamp.
The UV beam effectively penetrates below the enamel and dentin layers of the teeth and breaks down the accumulated layers of plaque and stains. After repeating the 15-minute process up to three times, the dentist will remove the gel and rinse the patient’s mouth. Depending on the condition of your teeth, you should be able to see visible whitening results in just one appointment. For profound stains, the dentist would recommend a few regular whitening sessions for optimum shade reduction.
Who Should Use the Zoom Teeth Whitening Method?
The Zoom Whitening system is ideal for removing staining effects that come from years of consuming food and beverages that are rich in pigments, and smoking. As the name suggests, the fast acting Zoom Whitening gel is ideal for time-poor professionals and highly mobile executives who need to see effective results in the shortest possible time, without having to compromise on safety and quality.
