The in-office procedure involved with the Zoom! whitening system typically takes about an hour. Dr. Mobley starts by applying the Zoom! whitening gel on the patient’s teeth. Next, the patient sits under a specially designed light for 15 minutes or so while the gel works on the teeth. After that, Dr. Mobley usually repeats the process three more times. Zoom! may take only an hour, but the results are truly incredible!
In addition to the Zoom! in-office whitening services, we also provide take-home kits that allow our patients to whiten their teeth at any time in the comfort of their own homes. These kits include custom-made trays that we create right here in our office for each patient, as well as the powerful Zoom! whitening gel.
While there’s no doubt that our patients see remarkable improvements in their smiles after using the Zoom! whitening products, it’s important to remember that teeth whitening may not be the right choice for everyone. Children, for example, should not have their teeth whitened. And even the most potent whitening agent won’t work on any dental restorations, only tooth enamel is affected by the whitening gel. People with sensitive teeth may find the whitening process increases that sensitivity for a brief time. Talk to Dr. Mobley to find out if you are a good candidate for teeth whitening.
