ZOOM Teeth Whitening - Yonkers

Zoom Teeth Whitening

For a fast and long lasting effect we recommend the ZOOM whitening method

The Zoom teeth whitening procedure uses a special designed lamp to accelerate the bleaching process. It speeds the activation of the hydrogen peroxide component. As a result of the hydrogen peroxide breakdown, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin to whiten your teeth, leaving the structure of the teeth unchanged.

Factors That Cause Teeth Staining

Age: Teeth darken as a result of natural wear and tear, and stain build-up over time. Through the years teeth can develop layers of stain that can require multiple treatments and or home maintenance to achieve the shade of white you hope to obtain. Good home care combined with routine professional oral healthcare visits and the wise advice of your dentist will help you preserve the smile that you deserve.

Congenital tooth color: There is a range of natural teeth colors one can be born with, some will be more susceptible to the effects of aging and staining than others.

Transparency, thickness, and enamel strength: This property also varies from person to person. Opaque, thicker and stronger enameled teeth will show more sparkle and respond better to whitening methods that thin, translucent teeth.

Certain foods and beverages and smoking habits: Eating foods and drinking beverages that have dark or bright colors like ketchup, soy sauce, grape and other fruit juices, red wines, and dark beers can contribute to staining teeth. Drug and tobacco use as well as trauma that creates cracks or fractures in the teeth, can all contribute to the build-up of large amounts of stain.

Take Home Teeth Whitening — How it Works

Patients who use our system are fitted for a set of custom whitening trays. These comfortable trays are designed to precisely fit each individual patient, unlike the over-the-counter products sold in stores, which take a “one size fits all” approach. The custom fit allows maximum whitening while using less whitening gel, because the gel can reach all areas of a patient’s teeth.

We can also customize the trays to make sure they don’t cover sensitive areas of certain teeth and make sure that the trays don’t cover the gum, since some patients’ gums are sensitive to the whitening gel.

Once a patient is fitted with the trays, he or she is given the take-home whitening gel along with instructions for how long to wear the trays each day.

Many patients can see results overnight, with maximum whiteness achieved within 30 to 60 days of daily (or nightly) wear. Another advantage of our system is that the patient controls how white they want their teeth. Once the teeth reach a desired shade, the patient simply stops wearing the trays until a touch-up is needed. Usually, patients can maintain their desired level of whiteness with a touch-up once or twice a year.
