What is ZOOM Whitening?
ZOOM whitening is a professional strength teeth whitening system that is administered by your dentist. It can be provided to a patient in two ways; either an in-office treatment or a take-home kit. As with everything having to do with your smile, your dentist is the best person to seek to brighten your smile when it has become dulled by foods, smoking and beverages.
ZOOM WhiteSpeed in-office and ZOOM DayWhite/NiteWhite take-home are whitening systems that are used in our Marda Loop practice in SW Calgary.
First we will examine your teeth to make sure you are a candidate for whitening. Your hygienist will then discuss the best whitening treatment for you and how we will minimize the sensitivity of your treatment. If your hygienist suggests a take-home kit we will take impressions for your custom trays. The ZOOM whitening process is painless, although it is common to experience some sensitivity with any type of teeth whitening.
ZOOM In-Office Whitening
Using a LED light to activate the whitening gel, we can brighten your teeth up to eight shades whiter in a single appointment.
The day of your ZOOM WhiteSpeed whitening appointment the hygienist will start off by explaining the WhiteSpeed procedure and sizing you for your custom take home trays. She will then sit you back and place a protective barrier on your gums. Once the protective barrier is fixed, the whitening gel is then applied to your teeth and the White Speed lamp is placed over top for a 15 minute interval. This is repeated three to four times, depending on the level of whiteness you desire. After the last interval you will receive your custom fabricated trays, one DayWhite take-home whitening gel syringe for touch ups, plus a Relief ACP Oral Care gel syringe to help relieve any potential tooth sensitivity. This sensitivity may continue for the following 24hrs and will then subside.
ZOOM Take-Home Whitening
Using custom fabricated whitening trays you can brighten your teeth to the whiteness you desire at home.
The day of your ZOOM whitening take-home appointment you will be fitted with your custom whitening trays, made by the hygienist. Depending on the shade of your teeth, the whiteness you desire and lifestyle, they may suggest ZOOM DayWhite or NiteWhite gel to use in your trays. Each solution is designed to be used for either day or night wear. You will place a small amount of the peroxide gel into your trays and place the trays in your mouth and wear as directed. Depending on the type of gel, you will wear the trays on your teeth for 15 minutes daily, 30 minutes daily or overnight, for a period of 1 day to 2 weeks, depending on the level of whitening you want to achieve.
