What type of tooth whitener is used with the Zoom Teeth Whitening System?
The ZOOM!® Teeth Whitening System uses a unique hydrogen peroxide based whitening gel. The product has two different components, a 32% hydrogen peroxide gel and an activator. The two components have to be mixed together in the right proportion to form a working gel with a 25% concentration of hydrogen peroxide, with a pH level between 7.5 and 8.5.
Does the Zoom Teeth Whitening System require a bleaching light?
As a part of the procedure, the ZOOM!® Teeth Whitening System requires the use of a mercury metal halide light for bleaching. According to
Discus Dental Inc., the wavelength of the light emitted from its units is in the range of 350-400 nm. The light is violet in color.
The manufacturer claims that the mercury metal halide light with this wavelength activates the Zoom Whitening System, speeding up
the bleaching process and enhances its performance.
The light unit in the ZOOM!® System comes with a built-in infrared filter. The filter helps in minimizing the amount of heat generated at
the surface of the teeth from the light during the bleaching process by filtering the emissions. The ZOOM!® Teeth Whitening System is capable
of whitening both the top and bottom teeth simultaneously with a strategically placed light.
Discus Dental developed a newer bleaching lamp in 2007, called the Zoom Advanced Power Lamp. It’s advertised to dentists as a more powerful
tool – whitening teeth by as much as 2 shades more than the previous Zoom lamp product. Clinical studies conducted by The Dental Advisor
in November of 07 seem to confirm this lamp’s claims – with results showing whitening improvement in the 1.9 range over the previous protocol.
