Q. Is Zoom Teeth Whitening safe?
A. Yes, extensive research and clinical studies indicate that in fact, many dentists consider teeth whitening the safest cosmetic dental procedure available. As with any teeth whitening or bleaching product, Zoom Teeth Whitening is not recommended for children under 13 years of age and pregnant or lactating women. Since tooth-colored fillings and crowns don’t whiten, a thorough examination is necessary prior to the teeth whitening procedure.
Q. Who Qualifies For Zoom Whitening?
A. Almost anyone. However, teeth whitening may not be as effective on some people as others. We can determine if you are a viable candidate for Zoom Teeth Whitening through a thorough oral exam, including a teeth shade assessment. Teeth that have a yellowish tint usually have the best shift to a whiter smile. As with any teeth whitening product, Zoom Teeth Whitening is not recommended for children under 13 years of age and pregnant or lactating women. Since tooth-colored fillings and crowns don’t whiten it is best to have us access your situation before you begin to whiten your teeth.
Q. What Are The Zoom Teeth Whitening Side Effects?
A. As with all bleaching procedures, tooth sensitivity is a possibility with Zoom. One out of of every ten patients may experience some sensitivity which is caused by high concentrations of hydrogen peroxide stimulating the pulpal nerve. It can range from an “awareness” of the teeth that can last several hours to a localized “shooting” pain that normally occurs during or right after the procedure. It is very important to remember that NO damage is being done to the teeth during the Zoom Whitening Procedure.
Q. How Long Does The Zoom Whitening Result Last?
A. By following some simple post teeth whitening care instructions, your teeth will always be lighter than they were before. To keep your teeth looking their best, we recommend flossing and brushing twice daily, and occasional touch-ups with Zoom take-home gel.
