Zoom! In-Office Whitening
If you prefer teeth that are immediately whiter right now or you would rather whiten your teeth over a few nights while you sleep, Dr. Palermo, Dr. Malatesta, Dr. Valerio, Dr. Molisani or Dr. Geminiani have your answer with Zoom! The Zoom! In-Office Whitening System uses proprietary technology to whiten your teeth an average of eight shades* in a little over an hour while you relax at our office. It’s ideal for anyone who wants immediate results.
Strips or paint-on gels can be a waste of time. Get your teeth whiter in a fraction of the time!
What is Zoom! tooth whitening?
Zoom! is a bleaching process that lightens discoloration of enamel and dentin.
Is there any difference between over-the-counter tooth whiteners and Zoom!
Yes! Consulting Drs. Palermo, Malatesta, Valerio, Molisani or Geminiani is always the first step to whitening your teeth safely. Over-the-counter tooth whitening strips, brush-on gels and toothpastes can take weeks or months to whiten your teeth just a few shades. Zoom! is clinically proven to whiten your teeth eight shades* in one hour.
How does the Zoom! In-Office System work?
The Zoom! light-activated whitening gel’s active ingredient is Hydrogen Peroxide. As Hydrogen Peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, bleaching any colored substance while keeping the structure of the tooth unchanged. The Zoom! light aids in activating the Hydrogen Peroxide and helps it penetrate the surface of the tooth.
Is the Zoom! In-office procedure painful?
No. During the procedure, patients can actually watch television or listen to music. Many are quite comfortable and fall asleep.
How long is the procedure?
The entire procedure takes just over one hour. The procedure begins with a preparation period followed by one hour of bleaching. A five-minute fluoride treatment completes the procedure (we recommend a cleaning prior to the actual Zoom! Whitening session).
*Do the results last a long time?
There is no guarantee to what extent your teeth may whiten or for how long it may last, but by following some simple post whitening care instructions, your teeth will almost always be lighter than they were before. We recommend flossing and brushing twice daily with a whitening toothpaste, and touch-ups with take-home gel placed in custom trays. These are professional formula products designed specifically to keep your teeth their brightest. They are available through our office.
