Since COVID-19 began and many companies adopted work-from-home practices, many of us have been paying more attention to how we look on screen, particularly during online meetings.
While the heightened focus on our on-screen personal aesthetic started with the popularity of taking selfies for fun, it has increased over the last two years as Zoom and other video platforms have become the new norm.
We are often required to speak during these online meetings, and sometimes we might even laugh. Now we have something else to worry about — our smile. While women may put on makeup, and men may shave, it’s a little more complicated when it comes to our teeth.
Even if you’ve taken great care of your smile, you may have developed discoloration due to coffee, tea, red wine, or other staining food and drink items. Fortunately, this is an easy problem to correct with the Zoom! teeth whitening system.
What Is the Zoom! Teeth Whitening System?
The Philip’s Zoom! in-office system uses advanced technology to whiten teeth up to eight shades with just one visit to the dentist.
Philips Zoom! also offers convenient at-home whitening treatments that include customized dental trays and a highly effective bleaching gel.
The custom trays keep the gel on your teeth so they can work while you go about your day or while you sleep, depending on the option you and your dentist choose.
How Does Teeth Whitening With Zoom! Work?
In-Office Teeth Whitening
When you receive in-office whitening with Zoom!, your dentist will apply a specially formulated hydrogen peroxide whitening gel to your teeth and then expose them to the Zoom! light for 15 minutes to activate the whitening agent.
The gel is removed, and the whole process is repeated twice, each time allowing the oxygenated gel to penetrate deeper into the enamel and dentin to lighten discoloration due to staining.
Teeth that are discolored from antibiotic use may require additional treatment time.
Customized dental trays and bleaching gel are available as a stand-alone treatment to use day or night for noticeable results or for the maintenance of your in-office treatment.
Professional At-Home Teeth Whitening: ZOOM Delivered!
Many dental practices offer Zoom! teeth whitening for at-home use. This method involves wearing a set of custom trays that the dentist creates from a digital scan of your teeth. These trays work with the professional strength bleaching gel to effectively whiten your teeth with visible results in two weeks.
It’s a super simple process:
- Get a digital scan at our office
- Trays and gel are sent directly to your door
There are two options that your dentist may offer for effective at-home teeth whitening.
- DayWhite – With this option, you whiten during the day. The typical daytime treatment includes wearing the gel-filled trays for 30 to 90 minutes once per day.
- NiteWhite – This method allows you to wear the trays while you sleep to whiten teeth overnight.
Both options provide noticeable results in 2 weeks when used correctly.
How Much Does Teeth Whitening With Zoom! Cost?
Zoom! teeth whitening costs are similar to other methods but vary widely depending on your dentist. Schedule a consultation with your local Zoom! provider for a price quote
How Long Do Zoom Teeth Whitening Results Last?
With proper maintenance, your whiter teeth can last for many years. Just remember to brush twice a day, floss nightly, avoid staining food and drinks, or follow them with a good mouthwash.
Illness and medication can also play a role in the health and whiteness of your smile, but this can be addressed by your dentist with teeth whitening or another cosmetic dental treatment.
Putting Your Best Face Forward on Zoom
With a bright new smile, you’ll be much more likely to speak up during meetings and express yourself more authentically.
You don’t have to let dental stains keep you quiet.
