Over time, enamel slowly loses its luster due to years of everyday use. Coffee, tobacco and other lifestyle factors contribute to the gradual dulling and discoloring of the teeth. ZOOM! Whitening is the perfect procedure for reversing this process, and can often whiten the teeth by as much as six to 10 shades. The greatest aspect of this procedure is that it is absolutely safe, pain free and fast. In fact, our tooth whitening process is completed in only one visit and takes less than one hour.
The ZOOM! Whitening procedure is highly advanced and makes use of the most current dental technology available. To begin, special preparations are made to cover the lips and gums so only the surface of the teeth are subject to the whitening procedure. Dr. Harrell then coats the teeth in the ZOOM! Whitening gel. This substance contains hydrogen peroxide, a completely safe and natural material which has excellent stain-dissolving abilities. Once the teeth have been coated, a special ultraviolet (UVA) light is applied to the surface of the teeth, activating the whitening ingredients in the gel. Together, the light and the gel penetrate the enamel and dissolve years of stains and discoloration. During the hour-long office visit, this process is repeated several times for the most thorough whitening.
Sometimes patients opt for over-the-counter tooth whitening substances or teeth bleaching trays. Although these may offer some whitening effects, the ZOOM! Whitening procedure is far more effective and much quicker. Retail whitening products lack the ability to penetrate enamel the way that ZOOM! gel and UVA light does. Furthermore, whitening strips and bleaching trays often must be used for weeks at a time before significant whitening is noticeable. Dr. Harrell’s in-office whitening process can totally transform your smile in a fraction of the time required by typical whitening products.
