About the Procedure
The procedure has been perfected through years of dental use. Your gums are carefully protected with a special covering, and then our unique hydrogen peroxide whitening gel is applied by your dental professional. Once on your teeth, hydrogen peroxide breaks down into stain-fighting radicals that break the molecular bonds making up stains, on and in your teeth. The intense light of the Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed Whitening LED Accelerator shining on our whitening gel helps these stain-fighting radicals whiten faster. The Accelerator light increases whitening results by an amazing 40%

A: Zoom! is a bleaching process that lightens discoloration of enamel and dentin.
Q:What causes tooth discoloration?
A: There are many causes. The most common include aging and consumption of staining substances such as coffee, tea, colas, tobacco, red wine, etc. During tooth formation, consumption of tetracycline, certain antibiotics or excessive fluoride may also cause tooth discoloration.

Q: How does the Zoom! In-office system work?
A: The Zoom! light activated whitening gel’s active ingredient is Hydrogen peroxide. As the Hydrogen peroxide is broken down, Oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, bleaching colored substances while the structure of the tooth is unchanged. The Zoom! light aids in activating the hydrogen peroxide and helps it penetrate the surface of the tooth. A study has shown that use of the Zoom! lamp increases the effectiveness of the Zoom! gel by 26% or more, giving an average improvement of eight shades.
