What is ZOOM!® Whitening?
ZOOM!® is a one hour, one visit teeth-whitening system that is great for busy patients. Dr. Moheban uses a high-intensity light, sometimes called a laser light, to enhance the professional-strength whitening gel that is applied to your teeth. ZOOM! is the #1 patient-requested professional whitening treatment. If you have an important date right around the corner and don’t have the time to gradually whiten your teeth, ZOOM! one-hour whitening may be the solution for you!
How Does ZOOM!® Work?
Before we start your ZOOM! treatment, our dental hygienist will apply a gel on your gums. This gel helps protect your gums from the whitening gel. We will also place a plastic guard on over your gums so that we can focus the treatment directly to your teeth. If needed, Dr. Moheban or our dental hygienist will apply a desensitizing agent onto your teeth to make sure you are comfortable throughout the entire 45–60 minute treatment. Dr. Moheban will then apply the professional-strength whitening gel and place the laser light over the teeth for 15 minutes to help the gel penetrate the dark stains on your teeth. We will apply more gel and then repeat the light exposure 3–4 times. Your total treatment time is 45–60 minutes — that’s fast enough to do during your lunch break!
