What’s The Difference Between Zoom! Teeth Whitening and Laser Teeth Whitening?

Life is always better with options, whether it is ketchup or mustard on a hot dog, what color your new car is, or how you whiten your teeth. There are many options available for teeth whitening, and it is often a matter of what is going to work best for each specific patient’s teeth. Two of the most popular methods of professionally whitening teeth is with lasers and the Zoom! Teeth Whitening System. Here are some of the differences between them:

Teeth Whitening Takes Years Off Discolored Smiles

As much as dental technology has helped us, there is still no way to completely stop the eventual darkening of teeth as we get older. Luckily, the many teeth whitening options available can fight against this discoloration. While many people assume methods like Zoom! and laser whitening are the same, there are many differences between their whitening methods.

Laser Teeth Whitening

Using the heat from a special laser designed to whiten teeth, a peroxide gel is activated. Under the watchful eye of your dentist, the combination whitens the teeth. While it accomplishes its goal of whitening teeth, there are a few drawbacks. First, the laser is small, so it can only cover a small amount of the tooth at a time, resulting in more exposure to whiten the whole smile. This can lead to unwanted infrared emissions.

Zoom! Teeth Whitening Works Smile Wonders

For a quick and dramatic smile makeover, Zoom! works amazingly well. The light used for the process filters out infrared emissions to limit the extra heat your teeth are exposed to. The Zoom! light can also hit the entire mouth at once, which greatly reduces the amount of time it takes to whiten and leads to a shorter appointment.
