As with any tooth whitening product,Deep Bleaching is not recommended for children under 14 years of age and pregnant or lactating women.
Do the results 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 Whitening Toothpaste, and touch-ups with Opalescence take-home gel or Zoom. These are professional formula products designed specifically to keep your teeth their brightest. They are available through our office.
Is there any difference between over-the-counter tooth whiteners and Zoom or Opalescence?
Yes! Consulting Dr. Hadar in Lexington is always the first step to whitening your teeth safely. Over-the-counter tooth whitening strips, brush-on gels and toothpastes 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.
How does the Zoom! In-Office System work?
The Zoom and Deep Bleaching materials 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 the Deep Bleaching In-office procedure painful?
No. During the procedure, patients can actually watch television or listen to music. Many fall asleep.
Are there any side effects?
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 chairside procedure?
The chairside 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/Deep Bleaching Whitening session). The one hour chairside application is followed by 1 to two weeks of night-time use (depending on your desired shade) with our patented custom tray design.
How long does Zoom and Opalescence Take-Home Whitening take?
The Zoom and Opalescence take-home gel is designed to be worn between four and eight hours per application for approximately 1 to 2 weeks. Dr. Hadar 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. Hadar will help you determine how many applications are right for you.
How is the Zoom and Opalescence Take-Home System different from most other systems?
The main difference is that the chairside application opens the pours of your teeth to allow the take home system to work more effectively. Also, the patented tray design allows for the whitening material to keep proper contact with the front surface of your tooth without leaking out. With these two improvements your teeth are guaranteed to be whiter longer.
