What is Zoom Teeth Whitening?
You may have noticed your teeth have been discolored over time.
Tooth discoloration is caused by the presence of dentin-discolored molecules within the layer of the tooth just beneath the enamel.
Over time, these molecules increase in numbers with the consumption of particular food and drinks, tobacco use, and various medications. Age and genetics can also contribute to tooth discoloration.
There are many options for you to whiten your teeth.
A safe and effective way to treat stained or discolored teeth is to have tooth whitening under the supervision of a dental professional.
Professional whitening, either in the office or at home, begins when a whitening agent (carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide) is applied to the enamel surface of the teeth.
What is Zoom Teeth Whitening?
An innovative way to whiten your teeth is to get Zoom Teeth Whitening, manufactured by Philips.
They are the no.1 in-office professional whitening brand for over 15 years, Philips Zoom is also the most recognized and patient-requested whitening system in the world. Dr. Baysa offers this product/service in Dental Arts Hawaii.
The whitening occurs inside the tooth, as the oxygen molecules penetrate through the enamel to reach the discolored molecules within the dentin. As the oxygen molecules from the peroxide begin to spread, they break the double carbon bonds of the discolored molecules, whitening the entire tooth.
As a result, the patient is left with a brighter, whiter, healthier-looking smile.

What is the best way to whiten your teeth?
There are a number of popular methods of whitening teeth. Whichever method you choose, always make sure to choose the method with safe and healthy ingredients.
Some of the popular options include the following:
1. Professional in-office Zoom whitening treatment
This treatment is done under professional care to ensure that you get the best results in the safest possible setting and in the shortest amount of time.
2. OTC whitening kits
These kits are generally available at major retailers and drug stores. They are available over-the-counter because they have a less concentrated amount of active bleaching ingredient than the bleach used at the dentist’s office.
3. Teeth whitening pens
Teeth whitening pens are often a quick fix for whitening your teeth on the go, but the results are often temporary.
4. Custom at-home trays from your dentist’s office
Trays that are made to custom fit your mouth are often very effective especially when you use the whitening gel given to you by your dentist. The whitening gels from your dentist are often much higher in concentration than those that are available over the counter.
5. “Natural” alternative whitening methods (charcoal teeth whitening, coconut oil pulling, etc.)
Alternative teeth whitening methods often have mixed reviews on their effectiveness and because they are generally not recommended by the ADA, they should be avoided.
Visiting a dentist near you is the first step toward getting a whiter and brighter smile.
