What is Zoom! Teeth Whitening?
Zoom! professional whitening is a bleaching procedure to lighten the shade of your teeth. The bleaching is a hydrogen peroxide applied to your teeth and then activated with a blue light. The in-office treatment takes around an hour and involves three 15-minute sessions with the special light being applied to the bleach. The take home version—for safety reasons—uses a less intense level of bleaching. For this reason, it will take around 2 weeks to achieve desired results.
How effective is teeth whitening?
The effectiveness of teeth whitening depends on:
- Which type of treatment you use
- Where you get the treatment from
- How you take care of your oral health
Professional whitening treatment from a qualified dentist is shown to have proven results. And when you receive this treatment from a dentist you can rest assured it will be the most suitable treatment for you.
Some teeth can be stained internally. If this is the case, no amount of bleaching will solve the problem. This is why it’s important to have a dental check-up before you get whitening. During a check-up your dentist can assess your oral health. If there’s no medical reason for the stained teeth, then you will most likely be an ideal candidate for teeth whitening treatments.
How long does Zoom! Teeth Whitening last?
How long the results of treatment last depends on you. While Zoom! should last between 9 and 12 months, if you don’t maintain your oral health the results won’t last as long. Depending on the state of your teeth, we may recommend you purchase a take home top-up kit to help you maintain your brighter smile. It’s important to keep in mind that everyone’s different, so results will vary from patient to patient.
Do teeth whitening strips work?
Yes. And no. The strips make your teeth look whiter, however the way they do this isn’t good for your teeth. Many whitening strip products achieve their results by dehydrating your teeth. Which is bad for your teeth. Then there’s the fact these treatments are a one-size-fits all, and this isn’t how dental health works.
Before you have teeth whitening you should also always visit a dentist. As we’ve said already, there can be medical reasons for stained teeth that bleaching can’t fix.
How to whiten your teeth safely at home
Want to whiten your teeth at your own pace and in the comfort of your own home?
While there are many (virtually*) safe and effective at-home teeth whitening treatments, we recommend the product dentists prefer: Zoom! at-home teeth whitening. The bleaching agent in the take home kit is not as strong as the in-office treatment for safety reasons. What this means for you is that the treatment will take longer than in-office treatment. However, you will achieve whiter teeth if you follow the regime prescribed by your Dream Smiles dentist.

No, unfortunately professional whitening treatments are not suited to everyone. If your teeth are stained internally, whitening will not help to resolve this issue. For this reason, we recommend that you come in for a dental check-up before you opt for a whitening treatment. This will give us the chance to properly assess your oral health and check if you are a suitable candidate for a teeth whitening treatment.
