Zoom! Teeth Whitening

Bright, vibrant teeth are key to a beautiful smile. However, factors such as age, food, and the environment can cause teeth to appear dull and discolored. If you are unhappy with a lackluster smile, Zoom!® Teeth Whitening can brighten your teeth by up to eight shades. You can choose between an in-office treatment, which can be completed in only 45 minutes, and take-home kits that can be used in the comfort of your home. These whitening solutions contain a bleaching agent known as hydrogen peroxide, which penetrates deep into teeth to eliminate stains.

Types of Dental Staining

There are two forms of dental staining: extrinsic and intrinsic. Extrinsic stains affect the outer layer of the tooth, or the enamel. Food and drinks such as dark berries, tea, coffee, wine, and pasta sauce can cause extrinsic stains to develop. Brushing your teeth can help to remove surface stains, but professional whitening offers more dramatic results.

Intrinsic dental stains affect the inner portion of the tooth, known as dentin. This type of discoloration can result from an overexposure to fluoride, medications like tetracycline, and trauma. More often than not, professional teeth whitening cannot effectively address intrinsic stains. Treatments such as porcelain veneers may be a more suitable alternative.

Candidates for Zoom! Teeth Whitening

You may be a candidate for treatment if you:

  • Struggle with extrinsic dental stains
  • Have not had success with over-the-counter products
  • Want immediate results
  • Have healthy teeth and gums
  • Do not have severe dental sensitivity

Your doctor can conduct a thorough examination of your teeth and review your medical history to determine whether you qualify for treatment.

Professional Whitening vs. Over-the-Counter Treatments

There are many forms of whitening treatment, ranging in price and efficacy. While products such as toothpastes, strips, and rinses can lighten a smile compromised by extrinsic stains, the results are often less dramatic and take weeks or months to achieve. In contrast, some products contain a dangerous amount of peroxide, which can cause severe sensitivity.

Professional teeth whitening offers predictable results, and reduces your risk of irritation. 

Professional teeth whitening offers predictable results, and reduces your risk of irritation. Whether you choose to brighten your smile in the office or at home, you can work alongside a qualified professional who can monitor your progress. Your dentist can even alter the concentration of peroxide as needed. Moreover, chairside treatments can be completed in under one hour, so you can reap the benefits of whitening more quickly.

An In-Office Whitening Treatment

Your dentist can begin by cleaning and drying your teeth, before placing a cheek retractor to gain better access to your smile. To ensure the whitening agent does not transfer from the teeth, your dentist can apply a special protective solution to the gums. The whitening gel will be carefully applied to the surface of the teeth, and an LED light will be used to activate the bleaching agent. This process can be repeated as needed to achieve your goals. Most patients can enjoy a more vibrant smile in as little as 45 minutes. After whitening your teeth, your dentist can apply a post-treatment gel to reduce your risk of sensitivity. 

At-Home Kit

If you choose to lighten your teeth at home, your dentist can create custom trays that will deliver the whitening gel directly to the surface of your teeth. You may be directed to wear your trays for a short period of time each day, or overnight. The typical treatment timeline is two weeks. At-home kits can also be used to maintain in-office whitening treatments.

Benefits of Zoom! Teeth Whitening

Chairside Zoom! Teeth Whitening is an excellent solution for patients with upcoming events, such as weddings or reunions. Whiter teeth can improve your sense of confidence and encourage you to engage in life more freely. With Zoom! take-home kits, you can also experience the convenience of whitening your smile in your own home. For patients who feel self-conscious about stained teeth, professional whitening can provide truly life-changing results.
