Zoom Teeth Whitening




Text Box:  Zoom is the most well known “in office” whitening system. It combines a 25 percent hydrogen peroxide light activated gel and a full-mouth bleaching light to lighten teeth 7 to 10 shades in an hour. Discuss Dental, the creators of the original Zoom, have now created Zoom 2 which produces less sensitivity.

The Zoom light activated gel is applied directly to the teeth and the high beam light is placed right above your smile. You are provided light resistant goggles, and mouth retractors to achieve the best result.  A Paint on Dental Dam is used to insure your gums do not get hot from the light.   After an hour passes, you see your results instantly, a new, dramatically brighter, much whiter smile. It is important that you realize that you must also continue with home maintenance to obtain and keep a good result.


Am I a Candidate for Zoom!


Assessments are made for each patient in Dr. Koeppels practice, focusing on the characteristics of tooth enamel, supportive gum tissues, existence of potential lesions and dentin health. Dr. Koeppel personally picks, with you, the patient, the whitening procedures and products, eliminating the worry of excessive bleaching, which can make teeth translucent looking.


Dr. Koeppel truly understands each chemical compound, and how they react to the tooth enamel and tooth structure, in each whitening product he prescribes for patients.

Therefore, each patient will have a different whitening treatment and protocol. Nothing in Dr. Koeppels office is one-size-fits-all. He strives to get the best result every time, on every patient using only the highest quality materials, and the most comfortable treatments.



After Zoom, it is important to maintain and exercise good home health care to minimize side effects, and staining. To keep bleached teeth white for as long as possible, it is important to stay away from pigmented foods and drinks.
