ZOOM!® is a one-hour, one-visit whitening system that is great for busy patients. A high intensity light, sometimes referred to as a laser whitening light, is used to enhance the effectiveness of the bleach. The bleaching agent used, however, is the most important element of the process.
Before the whitening, we'll place a rubber shield or apply a special gel to protect your gums. We can apply a desensitizing agent as well, to minimize tooth sensitivity. We think you will be impressed by the excellent results that can be achieved by ZOOM! in only an hour!
Take-home whitening trays are custom made to fit your mouth and enable you to whiten your teeth in the convenience of your own home. The whitening gel we provide contains a lower concentration of hydrogen peroxide than the gels we use in-office, but it's still higher than most over-the-counter varieties. You can still achieve the same bright, stain-free look with a take-home kit as you would with ZOOM! whitening, it just takes a little longer.
Whitening your teeth is an easy way to take years off your smile, and it can make your teeth look cleaner and healthier, too! Ask Dr. LaVecchia about your whitening options at your next visit to our Arlington dental office.
