ABOUT ZOOM! WHITENING
Years of enjoying coffee, tea, red wine, berries, soft drinks, and tobacco can stain and discolor the dental enamel until the teeth begin to look dull, dark, and yellow. For the fastest way to whiter teeth, our office offers laser teeth whitening with Philips Zoom! chair side teeth whitening. Seen on several TV makeover shows, Philips Zoom! Whitening can whiten teeth as much as eight shades in less than a few hours. Zoom! Whitening is a safe and effective solution that can be customized for each patient based on their goals, concerns, and needs without the typical tooth sensitivity caused by whitening treatments. Philips Zoom! Whitening is the #1 professional whitening system for patients.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Before the Zoom! whitening treatment is started your dental professional will clean and dry the teeth for the best results. While no sedation is needed, your dental professional will apply a protective barrier over the gums and safety glasses over the patient’s eyes. Once the teeth and gums are ready, your dental professional will apply the Philips Zoom! whitening gel with pH booster and then activate the gel with the Philips Zoom! Whitening blue LED light. The light can be adjusted to different intensity settings for the patient’s goals. Phillips Zoom! whitening will take a few hours when scheduled.
After the Zoom! Whitening service, your dental professional will give you instructions on what to expect after the treatment and tips on maintaining your new, bright smile, including what to avoid eating and drinking. Some patients may not need another treatment for years, but this varies based on the patient’s habits and lifestyle. Patients may purchase a Philips aftercare and maintenance kit that will include a topical gel for sensitivity and home whitening treatments for touch-ups. However, 90% of patients do not have any sensitivity after their appointment.
Since Zoom! laser teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure, it is generally not covered by dental insurance, but our office accepts many payment forms and we offer financing plans thru Care Credit to make Zoom! treatments affordable. Payment and financing methods can be discussed with our front office staff during the patient’s consultation.
