What Is ZOOM! Teeth Whitening?

ZOOM! teeth whitening is a professional treatment that utilizes a light-activated gel to break up stains and discoloration on the teeth. Conducted in-office, this procedure typically lasts around two hours. ZOOM! teeth whitening can lighten your teeth by up to eight shades, offering a safe and effective solution for brightening your smile.

Reasons Teeth Become Discolored

Teeth can become discolored due to various factors, including:

  • Aging
  • Tobacco use
  • Coffee, tea, and red wine consumption
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Certain medications

Why Choose Professional Teeth Whitening?

While over-the-counter whitening products are readily available, professional teeth whitening offers several advantages. Supervised by a dental professional, it ensures safety and effectiveness, with customized treatments yielding more dramatic and longer-lasting results than at-home options.

ZOOM! Teeth Whitening Process

The ZOOM! teeth whitening process at Just Smile Dental is simple and painless. Here’s what you can expect during your appointment:

  1. Dr. Webley will clean your teeth to remove any plaque or debris.
  2. Our Everett dentist will place a protective barrier on your gums to prevent irritation from the whitening gel.
  3. He’ll apply the ZOOM! whitening gel to your teeth.
  4. A special light activates the gel, breaking up stains and discoloration.
  5. We’ll reapply the gel every 15 minutes for three sessions.
  6. Following rinsing, you’ll leave our Everett office flaunting a whiter smile!

Caring for Your Teeth After Treatment

To maintain your bright, white smile after ZOOM! teeth whitening, it’s critical to practice good oral hygiene habits. This includes: 

  • Brushing your teeth twice daily 
  • Flossing daily
  • Visiting our dentist in Everett regularly for cleanings and check-ups 
  • Avoid foods and beverages that can stain your teeth, such as coffee, tea, and red wine

How to Deal With Sensitiveness After Whitening Treatment

Although professional whitening solutions minimize post-whitening sensitivity, some may experience temporary discomfort. To manage this: 

  • Use tooth mousse or coat your teeth in vitamin E oil
  • Use toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth
  • Avoid hot and cold foods for at least three days post-treatment
  • Take over-the-counter pain relievers as needed

Persistent sensitivity lasting more than three days should prompt a call to our Everett cosmetic dentist for further evaluation and guidance.

Cost and Financing OptionsVeneers Are They Worth It

At Just Smile Dental, we understand that cost can be a concern when considering dental treatments like ZOOM! teeth whitening. That’s why we strive to make our services accessible and affordable for all patients.

Cost of ZOOM! Teeth Whitening

The cost of ZOOM! teeth whitening can vary depending on the extent of treatment needed and any additional services provided. During your initial consultation, Dr. Webley will evaluate your dental health and discuss your whitening goals, providing you with a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs.

Insurance Coverage

While dental insurance can help offset the cost of many dental procedures, it’s important to note that most insurance companies won’t cover ZOOM! teeth whitening. This is because ZOOM! teeth whitening is considered a cosmetic treatment rather than a therapeutic or preventive procedure.

However, our team at Just Smile Dental will still work with your insurance provider to determine your coverage and explore any potential benefits that may apply. While insurance coverage for ZOOM! whitening may be limited, but we offer alternative financing options to help make your treatment more affordable and accessible.

Financing Options

For patients without dental insurance or those looking to finance their out-of-pocket expenses, we offer flexible financing options through CareCredit and Proceed Finance. These third-party financing providers offer convenient payment plans with low monthly payments, allowing you to achieve your desired smile without breaking the bank.

Frequently Asked Questions

The accessibility and affordability of store-bought whitening kits can make them a tempting option. However, we strongly advise against starting dental treatment, including teeth whitening, without consulting your dentist. 

Without professional dental advice and a thorough exam to ensure that your teeth are healthy enough for a whitening treatment, you run the risk of:

  • Increased post-whitening sensitivity
  • Gum irritation
  • Damaging your enamel
  • Ineffective treatment

Professional whitening treatments are led and directed by a dental professional, who will assess your mouth beforehand and determine your needs before starting any treatment plan. This will help ensure the safety and effectiveness of your results.

The results of ZOOM! teeth whitening can last up to a year or longer with proper care. It’s important to note that the exact duration of the results can vary from person to person based on individual factors such as lifestyle habits, genetics, and dental hygiene habits. Your cosmetic dentist can provide a more personalized estimate based on your situation.

Professional teeth whitening uses bleaching agents that open the pores of your teeth and help bring deep stains to the surface. This exposes the dentin layer, where living tissue and nerves are housed. When bleaching agents come into contact with the nerves in your teeth, this can cause slight pain and discomfort.

No! ZOOM! is completely enamel-safe when performed properly by a dental professional. Our whitening gel has a neutral pH, and we customize the treatment for your teeth’s optimal health and safety.
