?????????????????????????FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS???????????????????????????

Q: What is Zoom! tooth whitening?
A: Zoom! is a bleaching process that lightens discoloration of enamel and dentin.

Q: What causes tooth discoloration?
A: There are many causes. The most common include aging and consumption of staining substances such as coffee, tea, colas, tobacco, red wine, etc. During tooth formation, consumption of tetracycline, certain antibiotics or excessive fluoride may also cause tooth discoloration.

Q: Who may benefit from tooth whitening?
A: Almost anyone. However, treatment may not be as effective for some as it is for others. Dr. Pettaway can determine if you are a viable candidate for this procedure through a thorough oral exam, including a shade assessment.

Q: Do many people whiten their teeth?
A: More people than you might imagine. A bright sparkling smile can make a big difference for everyone. The Zoom! chairside Whitening System make it easier and faster than ever before.

Q: Is whitening safe?

Q: How long do the results last?

To keep your teeth looking their best, we recommend flossing, brushing twice daily, and occasional touch-ups with Zoom! Take-Home gel. These are professional formula products designed specifically to keep your teeth their brightest. They are available only through Dr. Pettaway's office.

Q: How does the Zoom! in-office system work?
A: The Zoom! light activated whitening gel's active ingredient is Hydrogen Peroxide. As the Hydrogen Peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, bleaching colored substances while the structure of the tooth is unchanged. The Zoom! light aids in activating the hydrogen peroxide and helps it penetrate the surface of the tooth. A study has shown that use of the Zoom! lamp increases the effectiveness of the Zoom@ gel by 33% or more, giving an average improvement of eight shades.

Q: What does a patient experience during the Zoom! in-office procedure?
A: During the procedure, patients may comfortably watch television or listen to music. Many actually fall asleep. Individuals with a strong gag reflex or anxiety may have difficulty undergoing the entire procedure.
