What is "Zoom 2" ?
"Zoom 2" is light activated whitening gel. The gel’s active ingredient is Hydrogen Peroxide. The Zoom 2 light helps to activate the hydrogen peroxide aiding it to penetrate the surface of the tooth, without compromising your tooth’s surface.
How long do the results last?
Your teeth will always be lighter than they were prior to undergoing the "Zoom 2" procedure. However to keep your teeth looking their optimal best, flossing, brushing twice a day, regular dental checkups and occasional touch ups with Zoom products is recommended and strongly advised.
What is involved for the “Zoom 2” bleaching procedure?
We always need two appointments for the “Zoom 2” process. The first appointment is to have a general look around your mouth and discuss what you want to achieve as a final result. Some tooth shades respond better to others to the bleaching process. We check your medical history as there are some contra indications such as pregnancy and photo sensitive drugs. We get you to check through the full list of them at this time. Then we take impressions of your teeth so that custom trays can be made ready for your next appointment. Next we clean your teeth to remove any calculus and plaque. This all takes about half an hour.
The next appointment is for about an hour and a half. We isolate the teeth to be bleached and apply the bleaching gel a total of three times for 15 minutes each time. The teeth are then coated with a protective re-hydrating gel and you are given the after care instructions together with your custom trays and over night gel.
