External staining of the tooth involves discoloration and damage to the enamel. This condition is caused by factors such as consuming inappropriate foods and beverages. Alcohol, tobacco, and coloured and carbonated beverages cause discoloration of the tooth surface, and the tooth’s outer surface becomes dull. Bleaching is no longer needed if this problem is treated quickly and teeth whitening is performed. Also, failure to treat the discoloration of the tooth’s outer surface in a timely manner can lead to damage to the tooth’s inner surface.
Internal turbidity and discoloration of the tooth may be due to intrinsic or acquired factors. Some people inevitably experience internal discoloration of their teeth as they age. But most people experience discoloration due to acquired factors such as taking certain medications or trauma and caries. Tetracycline use at different times in life and excessive fluoride use can also cause discoloration of the inner teeth. Usually, this type of discoloration cannot be treated with bleaching and bleaching methods. Therefore, dental restorative methods such as veneers and composites are recommended.
Zoom is a whitening process widely used worldwide to lighten the discoloration of tooth enamel and dentin. Tooth discoloration may be caused by drinking coffee, tea, cola or red wine. Smoking can also stain and darken your teeth. Teeth bleaching with a zoom device uses an extraordinary ray to whiten your teeth wonderfully.
This process takes about an hour in the office, and the peroxide gel is placed on your teeth during this time. After applying the gel, a light bulb is illuminated with blue plasma to activate the substance and whiten areas of the tooth that have changed colour. Bleaching results with fast and immediate zoom and the colour of your teeth can be brighter up to eight shades. Of course, it should be noted that the final result with zoom depends on the initial colour of your teeth.
Before you go to the office for treatment, your dentist will ask you to clean your teeth thoroughly. This procedure begins with a short preparation to cover the lips and gums. The dentist then rubs hydrogen peroxide whitening gel on the teeth, removes stains, and discolours the teeth with a special Philips Zoom lamp and light penetration. The gel stays on the teeth for 15 minutes when the light is activated. During this time you can relax, watch TV or listen to music. Your dentist may use a fluoride paste gel immediately after treatment to reduce tooth sensitivity.
