What is Zoom! teeth whitening?
Zoom! is a bleaching process that quickly lightens discoloration of enamel and dentin, creating an “instant teeth whitening” effect. Zoom! Is available as both a professional in-office whitening service and as a take-home whitening kit.
What can cause tooth discoloration?
There are many potential causes of teeth discoloration; the most common include aging and consumption of staining substances such as coffee, tea, or tobacco. During tooth formation, the consumption of tetracycline, certain antibiotics, or excessive fluoride may also cause tooth discoloration.
Who may benefit from teeth whitening?
Just about anyone can benefit from tooth whitening. However, treatment may not be as effective for some as it is for others. With an oral exam, Dr. Laudati can determine if you are a candidate for this procedure, including a shade assessment. To find out if Zoom! Whitening will work for you, call our St. James dental office: 631-265-5549.
Is teeth whitening becoming more popular?
Absolutely! A bright, beautiful smile can make a big difference. The Zoom! Whitening System makes it easier and faster than ever before.
Is professional teeth whitening safe?
Yes, research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth under the supervision of a dentist is safe. In fact, many dentists consider whitening the safest cosmetic dental procedure available. As with any tooth whitening product, Zoom! is not recommended for children under 13 years of age or women who are pregnant or lactating.
Do the results of Zoom! teeth whitening last a long time?
By following some simple post-whitening care instructions, your teeth will always be lighter than they were before. We recommend flossing, brushing twice daily with Zoom! Whitening Toothpaste, and touch-ups with Zoom! take-home gel. These are professional formula products designed specifically to keep your teeth their brightest. They are available through our office: 631-265-5549.
Is there any difference between over-the-counter teeth whiteners and Zoom!
Yes! Consulting Dr. Laudati is always the first step to whitening your teeth safely. Over-the-counter tooth whitening strips, brush-on gels, and toothpaste take weeks or months to whiten your teeth just a few shades. Zoom! is clinically proven to whiten your teeth eight shades* in one hour or six shades* in just one weekend. Call to schedule a consultation: 631-265-5549.
How does the Zoom! In-Office Whitening System work?
North Country Smiles proudly takes your total body health into consideration when offering dental treatments, and this extends to our teeth whitening services. The Zoom! light-activated whitening gel’s active ingredient is Hydrogen Peroxide. As Hydrogen Peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, bleaching any colored substance while keeping the structure of the tooth unchanged. The Zoom! light aids in activating the Hydrogen Peroxide and helps it penetrate the surface of the tooth.
Is Zoom! teeth whitening covered by my insurance?
Whether or not Zoom! Whitening is covered by your dental insurance will depend on your plan and provider. North Country Smiles gladly accepts dental insurance plans from the following providers:
- Cigna PPO
- Metlife (PDP Plus)
- JJ Stanis
- Delta Dental (Premier)
- Aetna PPO
- Guardian PPO
- UHC PPO
If you do not see your plan listed here, give us a call. We continuously expand our coverage. Please visit our dental insurance page or contact our local dentist office today!
Is the Zoom! In-office procedure painful?
No—Zoom! in-office whitening is not a painful process. In fact, during the procedure, patients can watch television or listen to music – many even fall asleep.
Are there any side effects of professional teeth whitening?
Some people experience temporary increased tooth sensitivity to cold during treatment. These symptoms disappear within 1–3 days after interruption or completion of the treatment.
How long is the professional teeth whitening procedure?
The entire Zoom! in-office whitening procedure takes just over one hour. The procedure begins with a preparation period followed by one hour of bleaching. A five-minute fluoride treatment completes the procedure (we recommend a cleaning prior to the actual Zoom! Whitening session). For an appointment, call our office: 631-265-5549.
How long does Zoom! Take-home whitening take?
The Zoom! take-home gel is designed to be worn between four and eight hours per application. Dr. Laudati will advise you on how long you should wear
each application. A recent study showed that you can achieve an average improvement of six shades* after just three nights of use. Dr. Laudati will help you determine how many applications are right for you. Contact us today to get started or give our office a call at 631-265-5549.
How is the Zoom! Take-Home Whitening System different from the Zoom! In-Office System?
The main difference between the Zoom! take-home whitening and Zoom! in-office whitening is the convience. You use the Zoom! Take-Home System in the convenience of your own home, though this process runs the course of three nights. The Zoom! in-office System is performed entirely in the office, and the whole process conveniently takes about one hour.
