In using the Zoom teeth whitener, your lips and gums are covered first. leaving only your teeth revealed. After that, the whitening gel is applied and left on for 15 minutes exposed to the Zoom light.

The Zoom teeth whitener is most commonly known for its work in ABC's Extreme Makeover. 

How Does It Work?

Hydrogen peroxide, the active ingredient found in the whitening gel, is activated by the Zoom light.

Without the Zoom light, the whitening gel will still actually work. However, by using the Zoom light, at least a 26% increase in improvements is experienced.  

How Long Will Results Last?

As with other procedures and products, just how long results with the Zoom teeth whitener depends on the kind of dental care you get afterwards.
