Zoom is a licensed process used in dentist's offices to lighten teeth.

By Zeel Editorial Staff, Last updated: June 26, 2012

Zoom! teeth whitening is a widely popular bleaching procedure that whitens teeth. Zoom combines a light activated bleaching agent with a special Zoom light to brighten your grin.

The powerful and efficient mercury metal halide fixture emits violet colored light. It also filters infrared rays to minimize heat and discomfort. Zoom is the tooth whitening system featured on ABC's Extreme Makeover.

What It's Good For

Zoom! Whitening lightens discolored teeth.

Who it works for: Zoom whitening will only work on natural teeth, not crowns, veneers or implants. Yellow-stained teeth tend to fare better than gray-stained teeth.

Recommended age range: Children under the age of 13 should not use Zoom to lighten their teeth.

When will I see results?: Zoom instantly whitens your smile.

How long it lasts: Followup treatments may be needed to continue fighting teeth tinters like coffee and cigarettes.

Key benefits of Zoom! whitening: Zoom! has the potential to immediately lighten teeth significantly. It can lighten extrinsically stained teeth (teeth discolored for external reasons, like smoking or dark-colored beverages) as well as teeth that are discolored due to genetics and the use of antibiotics.

Licensed uses: Hydrogen peroxide is an approved tooth bleaching treatment.

Did you know?: 74% of adults believe that an yellowed smile can be a detriment to career success, and 96% believe that a good smile leaves a good impression on the opposite sex. In other words, there's a reason why teeth whitening is so desirable.
