One of the most common complaints we get from our patients whose oral health is in excellent condition is that they wish their teeth were whiter. Lucky for them, our dentist in Torrance offers a procedure called Zoom whitening which is an advanced teeth whitening treatment available today.
Zoom whitening combines a powerful proprietary peroxide bleaching gel with a special UV activating light to achieve dramatic results. Often, in as little as one hour, our expert in Zoom whitening in Torrance is able to whiten teeth up to eight shades brighter.
The soft tissues in the patient’s mouth will be protected by a rubber sheet before our dentist applies the peroxide gel. Once the peroxide bleaching solution is carefully applied to all the surfaces of the teeth, the UV light is shined onto them. This light starts a chemical reaction that causes the whitening to occur. The process is called oxidation and it works similar to the way stains are removed from clothes except that the reaction happens in the dentin of the teeth where the deepest stains live.
After about 15 minutes, the solution will be rinsed off of the patient’s teeth to prevent over-bleaching. This process will be repeated 3-4 times within a one hour period. After we are finished, the results will be immediately noticeable and our patients are always extremely surprised with the effectiveness of Zoom whitening.
