Zoom in-office tooth whitening is a procedure designed to lighten the color of your teeth using a combination of hydrogen peroxide gel and a specially designed visible LED light lamp. The Zoom treatment involves using gel and lam in conjunction with each other to provide maximum whitening results in the shortest possible time. During the procedure the gel will be applied to your teeth and your teeth will be exposed to the Zoom lamp for two or three 15-minute sessions.
The most common concern is temporary teeth sensitivity, but lots of advances have been made in recent years to help combat this. Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed has adjustable intensity settings to help maximize patient comfort, and 99% of patients experienced little to no sensitivity. And Philips Zoom DayWhite and NiteWhite have a special formula with built-in potassium nitrate and ACP (amorphous calcium phosphate), which are known desensitizers. These special ingredients make your enamel smoother and more lustrous as well. We also recommend that you brush with a sensitivity formula toothpaste like Fluoridex Daily Defense Sensitivity Relief two weeks prior to whitening, and that you take ibuprofen on the day of your treatment.
