As the weather starts to warm, many of us notice that our teeth don’t look quite as bright in our warm-weather colors. Apart from this, many reasons make us want a bright smile- be it from beach parties, graduations, weddings, barbecue, and al fresco dining.
Lately, the primary solution for all these concerns tends to be the zoom teeth whitening treatment. It is one of the most professional, safe, and affordable ways to transform your smile – in just one appointment. This article outlined the steps in zoom teeth whitening treatment that lead to the perfect smile you always wanted.
Consultation and treatment planning
Consultation and planning is the first step towards a zoom whitening treatment. Under this step, your dentist will examine your teeth and gums. This is done to decide if your gum is healthy enough to handle the treatment. Your dentist may also talk about your oral hygiene and lifestyle habits to determine the techniques that will work best for you.
Sometimes after the examination, depending on the condition of your teeth and your requirements for changing the look of your smile or smile goals, your dentist may also not find zoom whitening as the best option. However, after the examination, your doctor will plan your treatment accordingly.
After the consultation and planning, if you are fit to proceed with the zoom treatment, your dentist may want you to prepare your teeth with a cleaning session- before scheduling. This is done to ensure your teeth are free from any dental issues that can get in the way of the treatment. It also enhances the results of the zoom treatment more effectively.
The treatment procedure starts by embarking on a short preparation that will isolate or cover your lips and gums, leaving only the teeth exposed. Then your dentist will apply a whitening gel to the teeth. This whitening gel is then activated by applying a specially designed, low-heat light that penetrates your teeth.
The light penetration will then cause the hydrogen peroxide in the whitening gel to attach itself to the stained molecule in your teeth- allowing them to weaken. This effect will allow oxygen to enter your tooth enamel and whitens them, breaking down any stains or discolorations. So, in simple terms, the light penetration and the whitening gel work together to break up any stains and discoloration, thereby whitening your teeth.
The gel remains in place for 15 minutes while the light is activated. This step can be repeated and go up to three coats. Meaning the whitening gel can be applied for three 15-minute sessions of light activation, for a total treatment time of 45 minutes to reach full effect.
Then finally, to end the treatment, you will undergo a five-minute fluoride treatment followed by some aftercare treatment advice.
