What is Zoom Whitening?
Zoom-teeth whitening is a chemical lightening of enamel, which is the fastest and most effective of all existing methods, but also the most traumatic for enamel. The role of the bleaching agent is a high-acid composition based on hydrogen peroxide. The essence of the procedure is as follows: this composition is applied to the teeth, and then the enamel pores open up under the action of a polymerization lamp and acid gets into them. As a result, your smile will become brighter for a couple of tones. Dental clinics in advertising this service promise to brighten almost 8 tones, but most often the result is a 2-3-tone color improvement and numerous reviews confirm this.

The scheme of Zoom teeth whitening
In dental clinics Zoom 3 and Zoom 2 can offer you teeth whitening. In Zoom 3, the concentration of whitening substance in the gel is higher and the flow of light from the lamp is stronger. Held Zoom teeth whitening as follows:
- You will come to the clinic at the appointed time. Sit back in a chair, as the process is not fast.
- The dentist will open a new individual enamel brightening kit.
- A special dilator will be placed in the mouth, which will fix it in the open state.
- On the teeth will cause a special composition to reduce the sensitivity.
- The gums and oral mucosa are isolated using a special cofferdam membrane made of silicone or rubber. Some dentists use a special gel, which is convenient to cover all areas of the gums.
- Lips and skin will be closed with napkins in order to avoid contact with a lightening compound.
- You will be given goggles of orange color to protect your eyes from the light of the Zoom lamp.
