After the examination, the dentist will then proceed to treatment planning. Treatment planning includes the best technique and product that will be used depending on your needs.

The procedure will start by preparing the mouth which involves the covering of lips and gums leaving the teeth being exposed. The practitioner will then apply the whitening gel solution (Zoom hydrogen peroxide) which goes together with the zoom light cure and let the solution penetrate the teeth and break up stains and discoloration. The gel solution must be left in place for 15 minutes with the light activated. The process takes less than an hour to be completed.
