Zoom! Whitening

Zoom whitening systems are the immediate answer to whiter teeth. Zoom can be done in our office, or over a period of three nights in your own home. The Zoom!

David Hubert and Adam Hubert’s office while Zoom! does all the work! This procedure is for patients that want immediate results on their brighter smile. The Zoom! Take Home System is much the same, as it uses a whitening gel to brighten your smile approximately 6 shades over a three night period. The take home kit can be used over the weekend, and when you arrive at work on Monday, you will have a noticeably brighter smile! Don’t waste your time with the name brand kits and get Zoom!

What is Zoom! tooth whitening?

Zoom! is a bleaching procedure that lightens the stains of food, coffee, cigarettes, etc. from the enamel and dentin on your teeth.

What causes tooth discoloration?

Many things can cause tooth discoloration. The most common causes are aging, coffee and tea, some berries, and tobacco products. During tooth formation, discoloration can be caused by the over consumption of tetracycline, certain antibiotics, and excessive use of fluoride.

Who May Benefit from Tooth Whitening?

Tooth whitening can benefit just about everyone! However, keep in mind that results may vary from person to person. Drs. David Hubert and Adam Hubert can determine, through an oral exam, if you would have success through this procedure. This includes a shade assessment.

Is Tooth Whitening Becoming More Popular?

Indeed it is! A brighter smile can make all the difference in many aspects of life, and the Zoom! whitening system is making it quicker and easier than ever before.

Is Tooth Whitening Safe?

Of course. Research and clinical studies have shown that, as long as you are under the supervision of a dentist, tooth whitening is safe. Many dentists believe that tooth whitening is the safest cosmetic dental treatment available to date. Just like other tooth whitening products, Zoom! should not be used by any children under the age of 13, or by pregnant or lactating women.

Do the Results Last a Long Time?

If the patient follows some simple post-whitening care instructions then their new smile will always be brighter than the old one. Flossing, brushing twice daily with Zoom! whitening toothpaste, and touch ups with Zoom! whitening gel can help keep your smile its brightest. These products are professional grade, and are available through our office.

Is there a Difference Between Over the Counter Whiteners and Zoom?

Yes! Consult Drs. David Hubert and Adam Hubert before doing anything to your teeth. Over the counter whiteners can take months to brighten your smile, and even then it is only a few shades. The Zoom! whitening system can brighten your smile more shades in just one hour, or one weekend.

How does the Zoom In-office System Work?

Zoom’s whitening gel is light activated, and its main ingredient is hydrogen peroxide. As hydrogen peroxide breaks down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin of your teeth. This effectively bleaches the stains on your teeth, and does not alter the integrity of your teeth. The light aids in activating the hydrogen peroxide and helps it enter the tooth.

Is the Zoom! In-office System Painful?

No. During the in-office procedure the patient may watch television or listen to music. The procedure is so painless, that many patients fall asleep.

Are there any Side Effects?

Some patients may experience increased tooth sensitivity to cold during treatment. These symptoms disappear one to three days after the procedure.

How Long is the Procedure?

The entire procedure takes just over one hour. To start, there is a small preparation period, followed by one hour of bleaching. After the bleaching, there is a five minute fluoride treatment. Although this procedure takes only one hour, a cleaning is recommended prior to the whitening.

How Long does Zoom! Take-Home Whitening Take?

The Zoom! take home gel is designed to be worn between four and eight hours per application. Since each smile is different, Drs. David Hubert and Adam Hubert will advise you on how long you should wear your applications. They will also determine how many applications are right for you. Recent studies show that the average patient’s smile was six shades whiter after three uses.

How is the Zoom! Take Home System Different from the In-Office System?

The only difference is location and time. The take home is done in the comfort of your own home over a few nights, while the in-office is done in one session at the dentist’s office.
