Zoom is a relatively new teeth whitening treatment that many patients are asking about today. The following is information about the steps involved with Zoom whitening, which may help you understand the process better, and give you some ideas about how to prepare for your appointment with our Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist.
Step one: Preparation
Patients should be aware that the Zoom treatment takes an hour to an hour and a half to complete. It will begin with an exam by our expert to ensure that no serious dental or oral health issues need to be addressed beforehand. It may be recommended that patients have their teeth cleaned first. This will remove some surface stains and calculus, which will make a noticeable difference in the results, not to mention make sure your teeth are as clean and healthy as possible.
Step two: Whitening
Our expert in Zoom Whitening in Beverly Hills will place a protective guard over the lips and other soft tissues in order to prevent damage from the materials used. They will then apply a hydrogen peroxide whitening gel to the teeth, which is activated by the Zoom laser. Together they work to eliminate surface stains and brighten the smile. There will be three fifteen-minute sessions.
Step three: Results
Patients will notice their teeth up to eight shades brighter by the end of the appointment. The longevity of the results is highly dependent on the cleaning practices and teeth-healthy diet of each patient.
