In-Office Zoom Whitening Procedure: A Method of London Teeth Whitening

16 / 12 / 2014

A bright smile creates an impression of youth, radiant health and happiness. It can easily win people over in an instant. Whiter teeth mean better chances to ace that job interview or impress other people. Luckily, there are many methods of London teeth whitening.

One such procedure is called Zoom Whitening. An article by Linda Dyett at Consumer Guide to Dentistry explains that the process uses the Zoom Advanced Power Chairside Lamp. This element is meant to expedite the bleaching process, activating 25% of the hydrogen peroxide whitening ingredient in it. When the hydrogen peroxide breaks down, the enamel and dentin are then exposed to oxygen, thereby being cleaned of staining substances. What makes it safe is that despite all this work on the teeth, it basically does not affect the structure.

Before deciding if Zoom Whitening is right for you, schedule a consultation with a dentist who should conduct a comprehensive examination of your teeth and gums. Be sure to tell the dentist about your oral hygiene and lifestyle habits as well. Should the dentist recommend zoom whitening, be sure to ask more information about this method of teeth whitening in London.

As for the actual procedure, standard Zoom in-office whitening takes less than an hour. However, prior to the whitening session, a regular teeth cleaning is recommended. To start the procedure, the lips and gums are covered, leaving only the teeth exposed. Zoom hydrogen peroxide whitening gel is then applied, combined with the Zoom light to break up stains on the teeth.

The gel remains in place for exactly 15 minutes. During this time the patient can relax. For a total treatment, the Zoom gel is applied for three 15-minute sessions. After this, a sensitivity-reducing fluoride agent will be applied to the teeth.

After the procedure, the task of maintaining the whitening effect falls on the patient. The dentist should provide you with a Zoom home kit and instructions on how to use it. Avoid food and beverages that may negate the effects of whitening like tea, coffee, and red wine. Avoid tobacco products as well and maintain an appropriate oral hygiene.
