For teeth whitening Stourbridge Dental & Implant Clinic offer a variety of treatments and below you’ll find plenty of information on one of our most popular treatments – Zoom Laser Teeth Whitening
Zoom teeth whitening can be described as a patented bleaching system which lightens the enamel and dentin and eliminates discolouration. It’s considered to be an effective and fast form of teeth whitening. The procedure normally takes less than an hour to finish. Before making an appointment, the dentist usually schedules a dental examination and cleaning to ensure you do not have any prevailing dental issues which need addressing.
The Process Involved
The first step is to make sure that your gums and lips are covered. This keeps the whitening solution away from the covered areas and applies it only to the teeth. Once your teeth get exposed, a hydrogen peroxide gel is then applied to them. A special light is then directed at your teeth in order to activate this whitening gel. You’ll normally need three coats of the whitening gel during the procedure. The gel is replaced with a fresh layer around every 15 minutes.
After the final 15 minute session, a fluoride gel is applied. This gel is basically used to help reduce any sensitivity the whitening gel might have caused. Before going home, you’ll receive a Zoom teeth whitening kit to take with you. This kit includes custom fit trays and a whitening gel. We will explain to you how to use the kit effectively in order to keep your teeth whiter for longer.
How It Works
The Zoom laser whitening gel’s main active ingredient is hydrogen peroxide. As this hydrogen peroxide gets broken down, the oxygen enters the dentin and enamel, bleaching the stained substances whilst the tooth’s structure remains unchanged. The Zoom laser’s light activates hydrogen peroxide which helps it penetrate the tooth’s surface.
