01. Personalized Technique:

First: To receive optimal results, we use ultrasonic cleaning, following a jet of micro particles eliminating bacterial plaque and all stains on the surface of the teeth.
Second: We use zoom advance power, a scientifically advanced, professional whitening system, in just 3x15 minute sessions.

The procedure is simple. It begins with a short preparation to cover your lips and gums, leaving only your teeth exposed.
The Zoom! clinician then applies the proprietary Zoom! whitening gel, which was designed to be used specifically with the Zoom! light. The light and gel work together to gently penetrate your teeth, breaking up the stains and discooloration.
During this time you can relax, watch TV or listen to music.

The gel is applied for 3 fifteen minute sessions for a total treatment time of 45 minutes.
Finally, you go home with your brighter, whiter smile!

Third: Finally, the patient has the option of continuing at home with the use of molds adapted to your size, together with a gel, that should be applied within 3 days.

02. Conventional Technique: They are called “home whitening kits”. It starts with the elaboration of a plastic mold that adapts perfectly to the size of your mouth. Later, the patient is given a kit with syringes that contain a whitening gel,that should be applied to the front part of the mold to later place in the mouth for a period of 2 to 4 hours, during the day or night, according to the system, until you achieve the desired color.

01. What is Zoom! tooth whitening?
Zoom! is a bleaching process that lightens discoloration of enamel and dentin. You may have seen the Zoom! process used by me on ABC`s Extreme Makeover.
02. How long does Zoom! Chairside Whitening take?
The complete procedure takes less than an hour. The procedure begins with a preparation period followed as little as by 45 minutes of bleaching. (A cleaning is recommended prior to the actual Zoom! whitening session.)
03. How does the Zoom! In-off ice system work?
The Zoom! light activated whitening gel's active ingredient is Hydrogen Peroxide. As the Hydrogen Peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, bleaching colored substances while the structure of the tooth is unchanged.

The Zoom! light aids in activating the hydrogen peroxide and helps it penetrate the surface of the tooth. A study has shown that use of the Zoom! lamp increases the effectiveness of the Zoom! gel by 26% or more, giving an average improvement of up to eight shades.
04. What will I experience during the Zoom! In-Office Procedure?
During the procedure, patients may comfortably watch television or listen to music. Individuals with a strong gag reflex or anxiety may have difficulty undergoing the entire procedure..
05. How long do the results last?
By following some simple post whitening care instructions, your teeth will always be lighter than they were before. To keep your teeth looking their best, we recommend flossing, brushing twice daily, and occasional touch-ups with Zoom! Weekender or Nite White gel. These are professional formula products designed specifically to keep your teeth their brightest. They are available only through your dental professional.
06. Are there any side effects?
Sensitivity during the treatment may occur with some patients. The Zoom! light generates minimal heat which is the usual source of discomfort. On rare occasions, minor tingling sensations are experienced immediately after the procedure, but always dissipate. You can also ask your dentist to supply you with anti-sensitivity toothpaste for use prior to treatment.
07. What causes tooth discoloration?
here are many causes. The most common include aging and consumption of staining substances such as coffee, tea, colas, tobacco, red wine, etc. During tooth formation, consumption of tetracycline, certain antibiotics or excessive fluoride may also cause tooth discoloration.
08. Do many people whiten their teeth?
More people than you might imagine. A bright sparkling smile can make a big difference for everyone. The Zoom! Chairside Whitening System makes it easier and faster than ever before.
09. Who may benefit from tooth whitening?
Almost anyone. However, treatment may not be as effective for some as it is for others. Your dental professional can determine if you are a viable candidate for this procedure through a thorough oral exam, including a shade assessment.
10. Is whitening safe?
Yes. Extensive research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth under the supervision of a dentist is safe. In fact, many dentists consider whitening the safest cosmetic dental procedure available. As with any tooth whitening product.

It's not recommended:

- Children under 13 years of age
- Pregnant women
- Lactating women
