Is it safe or will it damage my teeth?
This procedure has been used and reported on since 1988, with hundreds of studies backing up its safety and efficacy. Also, it is non-invasive whereas other procedures like veneers require the removal of some tooth structure. Other whitening methods using the same whitening agent have been around for decades.

How does it work?
For a take home whitening procedure, the dentist checks the teeth first, then makes customized trays to fit snugly over the clients teeth. These hold the whitening gel, a scientifically formulated, pH balanced gel, which gently penetrates the teeth to remove deep stains and discoloration.
For an in office procedure, the gel is placed directly onto the teeth, after using a liquid resin isolating medium to cover the gums. A light is then used to help activate the gel and allow it to whiten the teeth over three consecutive 15 minute sessions.

How long does it take to work?

Either the treatment is done at home or in the office. The usual treatment time is 2-3 weeks of consecutive daily wear at home of custom made trays. This sees teeth typically lighten by at least four to six shades. With the Zoom!™ In-office treatment we use the latest technology from Discus Dental for whitening teeth in just 45 minutes. The Zoom!™ procedure is simple and painless. It begins with a short preparation to isolate your lips and gums. We then apply the proprietary whitening gel, which is activated by a specially designed light. Teeth typically become at least SIX shades whiter, sometimes more, in the same hour.
