About Zoom® Teeth Whitening

Zoom® teeth whitening is a non-invasive and painless way to improve the appearance of your teeth. In just 60 minutes, our cosmetic dentist will whiten your teeth to a shade that suits you best.

During the procedure, a special whitening gel is placed on your teeth. A laser is then used to activate this gel, speeding up and boosting its performance.

If you would like to brighten your smile, please book a Free Consultation with our specialist dentist – Dr. Khalil will talk you through Zoom® teeth whitening and determine if you are suitable for the treatment.

To give you an idea of price, Zoom® teeth whitening starts from £275 per treatment.

Zoom® is a bleaching process that lightens discolouration of enamel and dentin.

The active ingredient of the Zoom® whitening gel is Hydrogen Peroxide. As the Hydrogen Peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, bleaching coloured substances.

The Zoom® light (a type of laser) helps to activate the Hydrogen Peroxide, and helps it to penetrate the surface of the tooth. This improves the effectiveness of the gel by approximately 25%.

Very safe. Extensive research and clinical studies have shown that whitening teeth by a professional dentist is safe - Dr. Khalil has over 15 years of experience in cosmetic dentistry and is highly qualified to carry out the procedure.

In fact, many dentists consider teeth whitening to be the safest cosmetic dental treatment available.

As with any tooth whitening product, Zoom® is not suitable for children under the age of 13 or for pregnant / lactating women.

The Zoom® light releases a small amount of heat which can cause slight sensitivity in some patients. On rare occasions, some patients experience minor tingling sensations immediately after the procedure – these quickly dissipate however.

There are many different causes of tooth discolouration. The most common is long-term consumption of substances that stain your teeth (e.g. coffee, tea, cola, tobacco, and red wine).

Consumption of certain antibiotics or excessive fluoride during tooth formation can also cause discoloration.

The results are long term, but this will depend on your lifestyle. For example, although your teeth will be several shades lighter after the Zoom® procedure, if you continue to consume substances that stain your teeth (e.g. coffee, tea, cola, tobacco, and red wine), your teeth will become darker over time. To keep your teeth looking their best, we recommend that you reduce consumption of such substances.

In addition, we recommend that you brush your teeth (at least) twice a day, floss regularly, and use Zoom® Weekender or NiteWhite gel (these are professional products designed to keep your teeth their brightest).

Before the Zoom® treatment begins, Dr. Khalil will examine your teeth and gums to determine if they are in a healthy condition. If you have gum disease, cavities, or an infection, you should treat these first so that you do not experience any unnecessary sensitivity during the procedure.

Once you are cleared for Zoom®, the following steps will take place:

  • Dr. Khalil will clean and polish your teeth to make sure the whitening gel can be placed directly onto your teeth rather than on top of plaque.
  • He will then protect your lips with a special lip cream to avoid irritation.
  • Next, Dr. Khalil will place a retractor in your mouth to pull back your lips and expose your teeth.
  • He will then ask you to bite down and rest your tongue on a cup that was placed in your mouth with the retractor.
  • After taking a photo of your teeth, Dr. Khalil will place gauze inside of your mouth, put a bib around your face, and give you protective eyewear.
  • He will then place a protective solution on your gums and teeth, before evenly brushing on the special Zoom® whitening solution.
  • Next comes the Zoom® laser light. Dr. Khalil will shine the laser onto your teeth to activate the whitening solution.
  • Throughout the next 15 minutes, Dr. Khalil will examine your teeth, reapply the whitening solution, and wipe away any excess to make sure your gums don’t become irritated.
  • This step is repeated until he is confident that your teeth are as bright and as white as you want them to be.
