Teeth whitening has become very popular in recent years.
There are a wide array of commercially available products. Most whitening products use hydrogen peroxide in various concentrations. But hydrogen peroxide in high concentration is corrosive and can irritate your skin and gums, and so over-the-counter products must have lower concentrations than in-office teeth whitening systems.
Not everyone is a good candidate for teeth whitening. Due to the corrosive nature of peroxide, you need to make sure you don’t have any cavities, leaking restorations, cracks or exposed root surfaces, as it may cause pain and irreversible damage. (Teeth whitening products do not have an effect on fillings, crowns or other restorative materials.)

Zoom 2 – Safe, Long-Lasting Teeth Stain Removal
Zoom 2 has redefined professional whitening.
The treatment consists of:
- Four sessions of 15 minutes with a lamp designed to speed up and complete the treatment in 1 hour.
The treatment does not affect the enamel because it does not break through the enamel. It breaks through the yellow color to remove stains and bring tooth back to its regular color.
In order to achieve maximum effectiveness and patient comfort, the gel has been reformulated to help prevent tooth sensitivity and increase enamel luster.
Researchers from Loma Linda University CA, conducted a research to determine if the enamel of the tooth was affected in any way by the whitening. Their conclusion was that
“under conditions of the study, treatment with Zoom 2 gel following the manufacture’s instruction does not adversely affect the micro-hardness (strength of tooth) and surface morphology (tooth surface) of human enamel.”
Researchers also found that Zoom 2 has 73% less transient tooth sensitivity than the original Zoom.
