A pearly-white smile is a beautiful look and a great way to improve your self-confidence. Many of our patients are opting for Zoom on office whitening for a fast, safe, and effective way to whiten their teeth. Zoom combines the newest advances in dental technology with proven formulas that ensure that your experience is painless, while the results are satisfying.REASONS WHY TEETH BECOME STAINED
ZOOM is a bleaching process that lightens the dentin and enamel of the teeth. ZOOM contains a hydrogen peroxide component (25%), which is the active ingredient in the gel. When hydrogen peroxide is applied to the teeth, the peroxide component breaks down into tiny oxygen bubbles. It is these bubbles that eliminate yellowing and staining.
A specialized light, containing a unique infrared filter, is used to activate the gel and expedite the process. This light reduces the amount of heat on the surface of the teeth, therefore, reducing sensitivity.

Zoom is only applied to patients with healthy teeth and gums; therefore, it is important to get a consultation with Dr. Ganeshappa prior to this procedure.
