With continued proper oral hygiene at home through brushing and flossing daily and limiting staining foods and beverages, patients can have whitening results that last for many months and even years.

ZOOM Teeth Whitening

With the in-office teeth whitening treatment ZOOM!® Whitening, our dental team is able to help patients achieve a beautiful smile by lightening any discoloration of the teeth. The whitening process with ZOOM!® Whitening will lighten the teeth up to 8 shades whiter in just one visit. The specialized ZOOM!® gel breaks down the stains to allow oxygen to enter the enamel and dentin layers and lighten the teeth.

ZOOM!® Whitening is only available at a dentist’s office to ensure safety and effective whitening treatments. Many whitening products on the market cause harm to the teeth and gums if they are used inapropriately or for too long, but with the ZOOM!® Whitening System the teeth are actually protected and will be left with a greater luster than ever before.

How can I keep my teeth looking consistently white?

The effects of teeth whitening will fade if teeth whitening treatments aren't kept up, but there are a few things you can do to keep your teeth looking bright white for longer. Avoiding drinks like coffee, tea, red wine, and berry juice can help prevent staining, or you can drink these drinks through a straw so that they do not come in contact with your teeth. Tobacco products should also be avoided as much as possible to prevent stains and discoloration from appearing on the teeth. When the time comes, we'll be happy to do a touch-up for you!

How long do professional teeth whitening treatments take?

ZOOM!® professional teeth whitening treatments take approximately one hour. The whitening gel is applied to the front of the teeth, and more gel is layered over it every 15 minutes, which happens two or three times, depending on the shade of white that the patient is trying to achieve. At-home teeth whitening requires shorter treatments that are done more frequently, usually over the course of a few days or weeks. Our team would be happy to help you determine which choice is the most convenient for you and your lifestyle.

What should I do before and after a professional teeth whitening treatment?

Scheduling in-office teeth whitening treatments right after your teeth cleanings is a great way to end up with a beautifully white smile, as dental cleanings can help to lift some surface-level stains and remove plaque from the front of the teeth. Your teeth should not feel overly sensitive after your treatment is complete, but if you know you have very sensitive teeth, it may be a good idea to avoid very hot and cold food and drinks and really sweet desserts for a few days to lessen your chances of experiencing tooth sensitivity.
