Types of Teeth Whitening Methods

Zoom Tooth Whitening

Zoom! tooth whitening is safe, effective and fast. Zoom! teeth whitening has been shown to be the #1 system by an independent dental research company and is featured on the popular television program ‘Extreme Makeover’.

The Zoom! gel was originally developed by Discus Dental that established brands including Zoom, BriteSmile, and NiteWhite. In 2010, Discus Dental was acquired by Philips. The popular BriteSmile teeth whitening subsequently ceased production. NiteWhite and Zoom whitening gel integrated into today’s Phillips Zoom Whitespeed whitening.

The Zoom tooth whitening gel is scientifically formulated, and when activated, gently penetrates teeth to remove deeps stains and discoloration. Research and studies have indicated that tooth whitening teeth under the supervision of a dentist is safe and considered one of the safest cosmetic dental procedure available.

How does Zoom! Tooth Whitening works?
The Zoom light-activated tooth whitening gel’s active ingredient is  Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2).  As the hydrgen peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, whitening colored substances while the structure of the tooth remains unchanged.  The Zoom light aids in activation the hydrgen peroxide in penetrating the surface of teeth.

What is the difference between zoom and zoom2 tooth whitening?

Discus Dental Inc. developed Zoom2, the “second generation” of the popular Zoom! Chairside Whitening System. Zoom2’s improvements and innovations includes:

  • Faster Chairside Whitening : 45 minute with instant-on light with no warm-up time
  • Easier : Advanced Optical Guidance System, Ergonomic Rolling Lamp
  • More Comfortable: Light & Gel Enhance Patient Comfort, ACP & KNO3 Technologies
  • Superior Clinical Performance : Eight Shades with patients being sensitivity-free

A study has shown that use of the Zoom2™ lamp increases the effectiveness of the Zoom! gel by 26% more, giving an average improvement of eight shades. The Zoom2 system also reported 73% less transient tooth sensitivity than the original Zoom! tooth whitening system.
