The Zoom! chair-side whitening system can brighten your teeth safely and efficiently. Featured on the hit ABC-TV show “Extreme Makeover,” Zoom! is done in the office during one visit lasting 60-90 minutes, making it a great choice for busy patients. At Reflections…An Orthodontic Experience, we offer the ZOOM! Whitening System both in-office and take-home.
The procedure is simple and painless. Our trained team will isolate your lips and gums in preparation for the procedure. The hydrogen-peroxide based gel is then applied to your teeth and a specially designed light is used to initiate the process. The light allows the gel to be activated and the hydrogen-peroxide broken down into oxygen. As the oxygen penetrates the enamel and dentin, it bleaches stained surfaces and helps remove microscopic debris without affecting the internal structure of the teeth. The gel remains in place for 15 minutes while the light is activated. During this time, you can relax, watch TV or listen to music. After three 15-minute sessions of light activation, treatment is complete and your teeth will be six to ten shades whiter on average.
