Zoom Q & A

Why causes teeth to lose whiteness?

Your teeth can experience discoloration or a loss of whiteness for various reasons, including:

  • Having poor dental hygiene
  • Smoking
  • Consuming foods and drinks that stain (berries, coffee, red wine)
  • Taking certain medications
  • Excessive exposure to fluoride
  • Traumatic injury

Teeth whitening provides a way to eliminate stains from your enamel and give you a gleaming smile in just one visit.

What is Zoom professional teeth whitening?

Though you can purchase teeth whitening products over the counter, these strips, paint-on gels, and whitening toothpaste contain a very mild form of the whitening agent. 

The Calandra Family Dentistry team uses Zoom, a professional formula that gives you powerful and dramatic results. Zoom effectively whitens teeth for most tooth discoloration. If your teeth have suffered an injury or lost their whiteness from medications, your provider can discuss other restorative treatment options with you.

Zoom is safe and delivers consistent results. This in-office treatment at Calandra Family Dentistry only takes about an hour.

What can I expect during a Zoom treatment?

Before your treatment begins, your dentist protects the soft tissues in your mouth to prevent them from becoming irritated. Next, they apply a professional-strength whitening gel to your teeth. A special light shines on your teeth to activate the process.

Within an hour, your teeth can become eight shades whiter.

How can I keep my teeth white after a Zoom treatment?

Zoom offers a powerful solution to whitening your teeth, but to preserve your results, you need to take a proactive role. First, assess your diet. If you regularly consume foods and drinks that stain, do your best to give them up or rinse your mouth with water right after and give them a quick brushing.

The Calandra Family Dentistry team also encourages a solid dental hygiene routine, including brushing at least twice a day and flossing daily. You should also visit their practice every six months for a professional cleaning.

If you’re ready to have whiter teeth, call Calandra Family Dentistry today or book an appointment online for a consultation to determine if Zoom is right for you.
