Zoom whitening is a teeth whitening treatment that uses a 25 percent hydrogen peroxide whitening solution along with a special lamp in order to whiten your teeth. While only a dentist will be able to advise you as to which whitening solution is best for your needs, Zoom whitening has been shown to be very effective at whitening teeth by several shades.
The Zoom whitening gel is applied to your teeth for fifteen minutes at a time, with the lamp being used to accelerate the bleaching process. This combination of the whitening gel and lamp is done a total of three times during the treatment, which means that the treatment involves a little under an hour in chair time. There are some candidates, such as those who suffer from tetracycline stains, for which a whitening treatment may not be the best solution. It is also good to keep in mind that most dental restorations, such as fillings, dental bonding, veneers, or crowns, will not respond to whitening treatments. In most cases, though, Zoom whitening has been shown to be extremely effective at whitening teeth.
