ZOOM WHITENING

1. What is Zoom!?
Zoom! tooth whitening is the newest in professional tooth whitening treatments that Dental Touch Associates now offers.

2. What is tooth whitening?
Tooth whitening is a bleaching process that lightens discoloration and removes stains from the enamel and dentin of the teeth.

3. What causes tooth discoloration?
There are many causes. The most common include aging, consumption of staining substances (coffee, teas, colas & tobacco), trauma, antibiotics, excessive fluoride, and nerve degeneration.

4. Who may benefit from Zoom!?
Almost anyone. However, start by consulting a dentist. He or she will determine a viable candidate through an oral examination and diagnosis.

For example, tooth bleaching may not enhance your smile if you have had bonding or tooth-colored fillings placed in your front teeth whiteners do not effect the color of these materials.

5. Where can I receive a Zoom! treatment?
Zoom! is performed right in our offices by our professionally trained dentists and clinicians.

6. What results should I expect from Zoom!?
In an analysis of 500 cases performed across the United States, Zoom tooth whiteningdemonstrated an average improvement of 8 shades using the VITAPAN™ System shade guide. Results also showed that the darker the teeth the greater the whitening effect.

7. How long does the Zoom! procedure take to complete?
In just over an hour, your teeth will be dramatically whiter.

It begins with a short preparation to cover your lips and gums. The Zoom! professional then applies the proprietary Zoom! Whitening Gel, which is activated by a specially designed light. A five minute fluoride treatment completes the procedure.

8. How does Zoom! work?
The Zoom! activated gel was developed after years of research by Discus Dental. The gel is a scientifically formulated, pH balanced Hydrogen Peroxide that, when activated by the Zoom! lamp, gently penetrates the teeth to remove deep stains and discoloration. The Zoom! lamp is not a laser and transmits almost no heat, causing little or no sensitivity
