Tulsa Zoom Whitening
Do you have an upcoming event you want a whiter smile for, but don’t have the time to do it at home? Sometimes when you want your teeth whitened, you want it right away. Or maybe you just don’t want the hassle of trying to remember to wear the trays at home every day. Whatever the reason, in office whitening can give you a gorgeous, white smile in under two hours.
When many people think of in office teeth whitening, they think of the Zoom Brand. It uses a special light to activate the gel, enabling it to whiten your teeth faster than at home. Dr. Cha prefers a brand of in office whitening that came out before Zoom. The Rembrandt Sapphire Whitening System works just as well as Zoom, with one important advantage.
With some light systems, there is post operative sensitivity. Dr. Cha feels the Rembrandt light is a gentler option for the patients than Zoom Whitening. This is because the Rembrandt light has a special infrared filter that filters out the heat-producing rays, so it doesn’t heat up your teeth. This eliminates one of the sources of post-operative sensitivity.
How Zoom and Rembrandt Whitening Systems Work
First, we will isolate your teeth by protecting your gums from the gel and light. Then we’ll apply a special whitening gel, which contains peroxide. The peroxide releases oxygen, which in turn oxidizes the stains and pigment molecules in your teeth. Normally this procedure would take several weeks wearing the gel each day for at least 20 minutes. However, the Rembrandt system uses a special light to activate the gel. In just one appointment you can have dazzling white teeth. It only takes 3-4 twenty minute sessions.
