Do you suffer from tooth discoloration? Have you tried to remove surface stains from your teeth using toothpastes and home whitening treatments? Do you frequently consume staining food or drink like wine and coffee? If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, you may significantly benefit from Zoom tooth whitening. Zoom is a particular tooth whitening process that uses a bleaching process to lighten the discoloration of your enamel or dentin. Enamel is the outer layer of the tooth that has surface stains, and the dentin is the inner lining of the tooth that cause stubborn tooth stains. Zoom Whitening is a great tooth lightening process for even the most stubborn stains. Take a look at the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions (FAQ) about Zoom teeth whitening process below.
How does Zoom Work?
This is most frequently asked question (FAQ) about Zoom Whitening. Zoom works by using chemicals to bleach the dentin and enamel of your teeth. More specifically, hydrogen peroxide is the whitening gel’s active ingredient. Hydrogen peroxide is a chemical compound with the composition of Hydrogen and Oxygen. In most instances, it is used as an oxidizer. Oxidizers are good bleaching and antiseptic agents. When the hydrogen peroxide is used on teeth, the oxygen breaks away from the hydrogen and penetrates the dentin and tooth enamel to bleach discolored areas. You’re likely to see a shade of white up to 8 times brighter than the shade that you came in the dental office with. Zoom whitening is one of the most effective tooth whitening treatments that dentists offer in their offices.
What are the Side Effects of Zoom?
There are some mild side effects that occur after getting your teeth whitened with Zoom, but these are typical across all types of tooth whitening. Answer to common but frequently asked question (FAQ) about ZOOM whitening side effects is, you may experience tooth sensitivity. Tooth sensitivity occurs when your dentin is exposed, and this happens when the enamel depth across a tooth lessens. This sensitivity is especially common during the procedure, as there is a minimal heat that you’ll feel.
If you have already thin teeth, this could cause discomfort. Additionally, while it’s rare, you may be left with a brief tingling sensation in your teeth immediately after treatment. This will dissipate quickly after treatment, though.
To protect your teeth, be sure to use a sensitivity toothpaste after your Zoom whitening procedure is complete. This will ensure your tooth regains any strength lost during the process.
How Long do Results Last?
Results of Zoom whitening is likely to last a lifetime, as long as your teeth are properly cared for, is the answer to another FAQ. This means performing general oral hygiene. You should be sure to brush your teeth twice a day and a half hour after every staining food or drink you consume.
This will help buff out and clean off surface stains of the tooth. If you let surface stains sit, they can become dentin stains and thus deepen the discoloration. Also, make sure you floss. This will target the bacteria and bits of food that hide between the teeth and cause additional staining. As long as you properly care for your teeth, your whitening should last you a lifetime.
