Zoom!® Chairside Whitening System
Do you want to zoom in one hour?
The Zoom! In-Office Whitening System is a revolutionary tooth whitening procedure. It's safe, effective, and fast - very fast. In just over an hour, your teeth will be dramatically whiter. Zoom! Whitening is ideal for anyone looking for immediate results. The speed and convenience of Zoom! in comparison to days of wearing trays and gradual whitening makes it the perfect choice for the busy individual.
Get ready to Zoom!
The Zoom! whitening procedure is simple and painless. It begins with a short preparation to isolate your lips and gums. The Zoom! clinician then applies the proprietary Zoom! Whitening Gel, which is activated by a specially designed light. Teeth typically become six to ten shades whiter - sometimes more. A five-minute fluoride treatment completes the procedure. You'll be amazed with the results. In most cases, teeth get even whiter during the first few days after the procedure.
How the Zoom! In-Office System Works!
The Zoom! light activated gel was developed, after years of research, by Discus Dental, the leaders in professional take-home tooth whitening. The gel is a scientifically formulated, pH balanced hydrogen peroxide that, when activated by the Zoom! light, gently penetrates the teeth to remove deep stains and discoloration. With proper care and an occasional touch-up at home, your whiter smile will sparkle for many years.
