Zoom In-Office Teeth Whitening Services in Brentwood
Many factors can cause people’s smiles to become less vibrant over time. Teeth discoloration can develop as a result of the aging process, along with smoking or drinking certain beverages such as coffee, soda, and red wine. While there are many ways to restore the teeth’s brightness, one of the most effective techniques available today is Zoom teeth whitening. The dental experts at Brentwood Dental Spa can provide this and other dental services to enhance your smile.
Achieve the Brightest Smile with Zoom Teeth
Whitening at Brentwood Dental Spa
With Zoom teeth whitening services in Los Angeles, our team can eliminate any tooth discoloration within a short period of time. When combined with other dental services including routine cleanings, this procedure can provide lasting results. However, Zoom isn’t for everyone. This is why we’ll perform an in-depth examination to determine if this procedure is right for you.
What Is Zoom Teeth Whitening?
Zoom teeth whitening involves the use of hydrogen peroxide gel and a Zoom Advanced Power Chairside Lamp. The lamp helps activate the gel to speed up the bleaching process. Once the lamp breaks down the hydrogen peroxide, oxygen then enters the teeth’s dentin and enamel. This eliminates discoloration without damaging the teeth.
It’s important to keep in mind that Zoom isn’t suitable for every patient. Prior to determining whether this procedure is right for you, our team will examine and evaluate the health of your gums and teeth. We may also ask questions regarding your habits to help decide if the procedure will benefit you in the long term. We don’t recommend this treatment for patients under the age of 13, or for pregnant or lactating women.
Keep in mind that you don’t require Zoom teeth whitening to achieve a vibrant smile. Other whitening techniques may be more ideal depending on the individual’s specific needs.
How Zoom Teeth Whitening Works
The actual Zoom procedure is relatively quick, taking less than an hour to complete. Before undergoing the procedure, routine cleaning is recommended to help prepare the teeth. Immediately before the application of the Zoom lamp, dentists or dental assistants cover the gums and lips to solely expose the teeth. They will then apply Zoom hydrogen peroxide whitening gel to the teeth, using the lamp to activate the gel and remove any discoloration and staining present. In total, the procedure consists of three 15-minute applications of gel and light. Together, these comprise a single 45-minute session. Following this treatment period, the dentist will coat your teeth with a sensitivity-reducing fluoride paste gel.
How to Maintain the Effects
After this initial procedure, more steps are required to help maintain the whitening effects in the long term. Your dentist will recommend avoiding certain habits and consumables that may otherwise stain and discolor the teeth. In addition, your dentist will provide instructions for using a touch-up that they provide. This kit includes whitening trays that are customized to fit your teeth. It may also be advisable to use whitening toothpaste to help further maintain the results.

Possible Sensitivity to Treatment
To further determine if the Zoom teeth whitening procedure is right for you, it’s important to consider potential sensitivity to treatment, which some may experience. Mild to moderate discomfort could develop throughout the treatment, as the Zoom light produces a small amount of heat. To help reduce discomfort, your dentist can apply anti-sensitivity toothpaste immediately following the procedure. In some cases, patients may also experience a slight tingling sensation following treatment, but this quickly subsides.
