Zoom 4 Whitening in Dubai. Prices, reviews
Tooth enamel can change its color under the influence of various external factors. When teeth turn yellow or darken, the smile becomes dull and unattractive, making you feel self-conscious and psychologically uncomfortable. The problem can be easily solved with a whitening treatment. Our Aesthete clinic in Dubai apply a cutting-edge method of 4 light-activated whitening -- ZOOM 4 -- for restoring the whiteness of teeth. We devote a new article in our blog to overview this method
ZOOM 4 Teeth Whitening
The technique was developed by the American company DISCUS DENTAL and is currently one of the most advanced, safe and effective methods of teeth whitening. This is why ZOOM 4 is offered to patients at Aesthete clinic.
Zoom 4 Indications
The main indication for applying the technique is the patient's desire to make their teeth whiter and their smile dazzling. In-office whitening does an excellent job of removing smoker's plaque, which is highly dense and difficult to remove with a regular brush and paste. Old nicotine plaque can only be eliminated by professional methods.
Zoom 4 will restore the whiteness of teeth lost due to the frequent use of food and drinks with coloring pigments. If such foods are present in your diet in large quantities, your tooth enamel will darken, turn yellow and become spotted over time. Professional whitening can restore uniformity and beauty of your teeth color.
Tooth enamel changes its shade because of the intake of certain medications, and it is Zoom 4 that will help restore your ultrawhite smile. Whitening is also prescribed after long-term wearing of orthodontic appliances, which leads to uneven tooth color.
When You Can't Use Zoom 4
Unfortunately, the technique cannot be recommended for all patients. It cannot be applied to children and teenagers under 18 years of age, since the enamel structure is still being formed until this age, and whitening can provoke undesirable malfunctions. Zoom 4 cannot be applied to people with oncological diagnoses, epilepsy, diabetes mellitus, and those who are allergic to components of the gel used for the procedure. Teeth should not be whitened for patients taking certain drugs that increase the body’s sensitivity to ultraviolet light.
Temporary restrictions for Zoom 4 whitening will be caries, inflammatory processes in soft tissue. These diseases need to be cured first and only then you can proceed to the smile aesthetics. The procedure will be ineffective if one has large fillings on the teeth. The technique will not improve the color of the darkened restorations, and they will have to be changed. Whitening will not restore the attractiveness of the shade of the installed dentures, composite and ceramic veneers. If the denture color has changed for any reason, there is only one solution: a complete replacement.
You can get a detailed advice on Zoom 4 at a personal appointment with Aesthete dentists in our clinic in Dubai.
Benefits you can get by choosing Zoom 4
The advantages of the technique include:
- Pronounced, well-marked result achieved with just 1 procedure at the doctor's office;
- Lasting effect. If the patient follows the dentist recommendations, takes care of his teeth daily, then the smile whiteness will remain for 2-3 years;
- Short time that you need to spend in the doctor's chair. Zoom 4 whitening takes just 1.5 hours;
- Benign effect on the tooth enamel. The integrity of the natural enamel coating is not violated, as when using outdated chemical bleaching methods;
- The technique is effective not only in the elimination of nicotine and food pigmentation. It shows good results in lightening tetracycline teeth and fluorosis stains.
Ultraviolet radiation is cold, so there is no risk of burning the mucous membranes, gums, or internal tissues of the tooth. In addition, the doctor always has the opportunity to personally adjust the intensity of the glow, taking into account all the features of the current state of the patient's teeth and body.
Zoom 4 or Zoom 3?
In Aesthete clinic, patients are offered Zoom 4 whitening, as a more up-to-date, effective and gentle modification of the technique.
We have chosen this technique for you because:
- risks of chemical or thermal injury to enamel, dentin, gums are minimized;/li>
- the reduced concentration of active gel substances acts gently, but at the same time helps to achieve excellent whitening results;
- the gel contains substances that strengthen the tooth enamel, while the medicine used in Zoom 3 has no preventive effect;
- increased tooth hypersensitivity after Zoom 4 whitening lasts a shorter time.
What will be the result?
The intensity of the enamel lightening effect after Zoom 4 depends on its natural shade. In total, dentists distinguish sixteen different shades of tooth enamel, and among them, there are quite dark ones. The darker the enamel natural color, the more difficult it is to achieve perfect whiteness when whitening. In some cases, even the highly effective Zoom 4 will not provide the patient with the desired result, and in this case, the dentist will advise to install veneers.
Zoom 4 efficacy in fluorosis and tetracycline teeth
The technique shows good results with minor defects, but if the tooth color has changed significantly, it is better to choose other correction methods. For example, intracanal whitening or veneer restoration.
How long will your white smile last?
The technique gives a lasting result for about 2 years. You will enjoy a white smile for this period and longer if you follow the dentist’s recommendations for dental care and hygiene.
How often can I whiten my teeth with Zoom 4?
The technique gives a lasting effect, and your teeth will remain white for several years (with proper care), so there is no need to repeat the procedure more than once every 2-3 years. Moreover, the increased frequency for applying the technique will harm your teeth. Too frequent whitening will thin the enamel, make it vulnerable to mechanical damage and pathogenic microflora.
You can safely keep a white smile not with regular in-office whitening, but with the use of Zoom home systems and professional dental hygiene.
Dental care after Zoom 4
To keep your teeth white as long as possible, it is enough to follow several simple rules:
- You should refrain from smoking for 4-5 days after the procedure. Whitened enamel is particularly sensitive to nicotine pigment, so it will quickly stain and turn unpleasant yellow;
- For a week, you will have to follow a white diet, giving up all foods and drinks that contain food pigments. Such foods and drinks include: black tea, coffee, red wine, natural juices from red berries and fruits, Pepsi, Coca-Cola, tomato sauces, carrots;
- It is important to provide your teeth with the highest quality hygiene. Brush your teeth twice a day, rinse your mouth after every meal, use brushes, flosses and irrigators.
It will also be helpful to consume foods rich in fluoride, phosphorus and calcium. These minerals help strengthen and restore enamel, and make teeth stronger.
Could there be any side effects?
When properly performed, Zoom 4 whitening should not cause any side effects. However, within a few days after the session, there can be observed a pronounced reaction of the teeth to temperature stimuli. It does not require special treatment and goes away by its own, but to release yourself from discomfort, try not to eat excessively hot/cold food.
Serious complications are likely to be encountered only if whitening was performed on teeth with untreated caries.
Active components will easily penetrate to the pulp through the destroyed tissues and cause its severe chemical burn, resulting in pulpitis. For not to experience such an unpleasant consequence of whitening, trust only the clinics and doctors who know how to apply Zoom 4 and strictly follow the established procedure!
Does it hurt to whiten your teeth with Zoom 4?
Live and healthy teeth have both temperature and chemical sensitivity, so you can feel a slight discomfort during the session, and after it – an unpleasant reaction to temperature stimuli. To make Zoom 4 whitening as comfortable and delicate as possible, the product manufacturers have added certain components to the active gel, which reduce sensitivity and restore the tooth enamel.
If you are worried that whitening your teeth will be unpleasant, Aesthete clinic will offer you local anesthesia and even sedation, that is, whitening while you sleep. You will sleep peacefully, while our doctors will be making your smile ultrawhite.
Does Zoom 4 require any special preparation?
If your teeth are healthy, then no additional preparatory measures are required. However, if caries is detected during the initial examination in the dentist's office, it will be necessary to treat it and only after that whiten the enamel. You will have to postpone the procedure for stomatitis, gingivitis and other gum diseases. First, you will need to have a course of appropriate therapy, which will completely stop the inflammatory and infectious processes.
If you have high tooth sensitivity, be sure to tell your doctor about this. If you want the procedure to pass without pain and unpleasant consequences, first, they should eliminate such hypersensitivity. For this, deep remineralization of the enamel with phosphorus and calcium preparations should be performed.
If you haven’t taken professional hygiene for a long time, then sanitation is a must before Zoom 4. By removing mineralized and soft plaque, the dentist will see the natural shade of your enamel and give you an accurate prediction of the future whitening results.
The main stages of Zoom 4 whitening
Although the Zoom 4 enamel lightening takes only 1.5 hours, it will be a multi-stage procedure.
At the first visit to the dentist’s office, a careful examination of the patient’s teeth should be carried out. It helps to identify possible contraindications to whitening. We shall remind you that Zoom 4 is contra-indicated if the patient has caries. If carious lesions are found on the teeth, treatment shall be carried out first!
To get a quality whitening result, it is necessary to clean the tooth surfaces from hard and soft plaque before the session. Ideally, this procedure shall be carried out a week before whitening. If you have increased tooth sensitivity, then after professional hygiene, you will be prescribed special medicines strengthening the enamel to be used within 5-7 days. Remineralizing gels restore the structure of the enamel coating and remove hypersensitivity.
The whitening result is predicted using a special tool – the VITA scale. The doctor shows the patient what the tooth shade will be after the procedure and, if the patient agrees, proceeds to the next step.
Zoom 4 uses the gel with a relatively low concentration of hydrogen peroxide, but the substance is still quite caustic. If it is applied to the teeth without prior protection, there is a risk of chemical burns of soft tissues. Therefore, before using the gel, the gums and mucous membranes of the lips are covered with a special protective agent.
Protection is important not only for soft tissues, but the eyes must be protected as well, since ultraviolet radiation is harmful to them. Therefore, the patient needs to wear safety goggles.
Application of Zoom 4 gel
The teeth in the smile area are treated with an antiseptic solution and thoroughly air-dried. The dentist then covers them with a whitening gel. The gel should be applied tightly and evenly.
The treated teeth are exposed to ultraviolet radiation, which is produced by a special lamp. The tooth surfaces are treated with the light within 15-20 minutes. When the session is over, the dentist will turn off the lamp and gently remove the remaining dried gel from the teeth.
If the first session did not provide the desired result, the cycle with the gel application and light exposure can be repeated 2-3 more times.
At the final stage of Zoom 4, the teeth are covered with a remineralizing preparation that will strengthen the enamel, speed up its restoration processes, and quickly eliminate unpleasant sensitivity. The patient also receives detailed advice on home care to support the whitening results.
ZOOM 4 whitening price
The price for Zoom 4 whitening is 48,400 rubles. This amount includes all consumables and whitening manipulations. But it does not include measures for the treatment of the teeth and gums diseases identified during the examination, and the patient shall pay for all these procedures additionally. Zoom 4 home kits, which will help maintain the result for the longest possible time, shall be also paid additionally.
