What is Zoom! Teeth Whitening?

As the name suggests, Zoom! teeth whitening is a quick way to brighten the appearance of teeth. The process works with a powerful UV lamp that activates the whitening agent, made of hydrogen peroxide, which is placed on the teeth. The tooth bleaching process occurs when the hydrogen peroxide breaks down because of the heat and light of the lamp, bringing oxygen to the enamel and dentin. This whitening process bleaches away visible stains, discolorations, and darkened sections of teeth while still preserving the underlying structure of each tooth.

As you can see in our before and after images below, Zoom! teeth whitening makes a visible difference in the brightness of a smile. Give your teeth a healthy-looking glow with a Zoom! whitening kit.

Eligibility for the Procedure

Zoom! teeth whitening is quick and relatively easy, but that doesn’t mean it’s for everyone. A dentist needs to approve the tooth whitening process. In certain cases based on oral hygiene, lifestyle, or dental cosmetic goals, teeth whitening may not be the best choice. Whitening is always the final step in your treatment. Your mouth must be free from cavities prior to whitening.

It is important to recognize that any existing dental work you have will not respond to Zoom! teeth whitening. So if you have crowns or veneers that match your current smile brightness, using a Zoom! whitening kit may give you a mismatched-looking smile. Your dentist will help you determine if a Zoom! whitening gel is a good fit for your oral circumstances and preferences.

Benefits of Zoom! Whitening

The most obvious and most important advantage of Zoom! teeth whitening is that it is a quick, reliable way to get your teeth to look brighter. There are plenty of whitening options out there, from toothpaste to strips and bleaching trays, but Zoom! whitening takes less than an hour for immediate results. Plus, you get a Zoom! whitening kit with Zoom! whitening gel to help maintain those shining results. Also, importantly, Zoom! whitening does not have any long-term side effects the way some other oral procedures can.

Procedure Details

There isn’t much involved with the Zoom! whitening procedure other than an official consultation beforehand to get approval from the dentist for this method. 

Once you are here at the office ready for your teeth whitening procedure to begin, the process will be very quick. All you will need to do is get settled comfortably in your chair. Then we give you a cheek retractor, apply the whitening gel to your teeth, and shine a UV light on your smile. We will then remove the gel after about half an hour. And that’s it! You will see the immediate results in a brighter smile. 

We will provide you with detailed instructions for your at home Zoom! whitening kit and schedule your next appointment.

Whether you have tooth imperfections or are interested in straightening your teeth, Definitive Dental can help you improve the appearance of your teeth. 

With invisible aligners, like SureSmile and Invisalign, you can straighten your teeth discreetly and comfortably. On the other hand, veneers are a wonderful option if you are looking for a way to conceal tooth imperfections and discoloration. 

Here’s a closer look at the pros and cons, typical candidates, and procedures of veneers vs clear aligners.

Veneers vs Invisalign: At a Glance

Veneers vs Invisalign: Who is a Good Candidate?

Since veneers are permanent fixtures on the teeth, they work well for color correction and size assimilation for a unified smile, but can’t do as much for moving teeth around. On the other hand, clear aligners can help teeth gradually shift, but don’t help with discoloration. 

It should be noted that neither clear aligners nor veneers are usually recommended for children. SureSmile and Invisalign clear aligners focus on straightening teeth, but should not be considered before permanent teeth are in the mouth. Similarly, veneers are made to last, so they shouldn’t be put on baby teeth. 

Veneers vs Invisalign: Pros and Cons

Clear aligners have the advantage of being a popular, tried-and-true method that’s relatively the same cost as braces for correcting while offering a quick, comfortable, and aesthetically pleasing treatment experience compared to regular braces. However, clear aligners need to be worn for the majority of the day, about 20-22 hours. 

Veneers can protect damaged or eroded teeth with a secure covering. However, if you don’t put veneers on all your front teeth, you can have an uneven smile with noticeable color differences as normal teeth change color over time while the veneers remain the same. Veneers are also generally irreversible, in the event your veneers become damaged, you will have to put on another veneer or crown the tooth.

Veneers vs Invisalign: Procedure Details

Length, cost, and recovery are all factors to consider. As previously mentioned, the treatment plan for clear aligners lasts around 6-8 months. After an initial consultation and exam, a virtual workup of your smile is created to envision the results. Once the aligners are ready, patients will need to wear their clear aligners every day, except during meals. Regular checkups are also required to ensure that teeth are moving properly and new trays are used when necessary.

In contrast, veneers only involve procedures at the dentist without any taking off or putting on anything at home since they are permanently placed on teeth. Typically, you have a consult visit, a first operative visit where you get temporary veneers and have an impression taken for your permanent ones, and then a follow-up visit where you get your permanent veneers. Each of these procedures is relatively quick and painless. There isn’t much recovery required since it is typically not an invasive or intensive process, but you do need to upkeep your oral health and continue seeing your dentist regularly to monitor your veneer condition.
