Brighten Your Smile in under an Hour!

A fresh, bright smile can boost your confidence, and with Zoom! in-house teeth whitening, your teeth can be up to eight shades whiter in under an hour.

Why Choose Professional Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening solutions are widely available over the counter at local your drugstore, but these bleaching options are not as strong as professional solutions and cannot penetrate as deeply into the enamel to break apart stubborn stains.

While generally effective at removing most of the stains on the surface of teeth, over-the-counter formulas are rarely able to reach the stains between the micro cracks in tooth enamel and in the layer of dentin underneath. Plus, the standard trays and strips make it hard to whiten teeth evenly, leaving discolored areas at the edges and between teeth.

Plus, we can evaluate your teeth and make sure that it’s just stains causing your teeth to discolor. Sometimes, teeth discolor for reasons that can’t be improved with whitening. We can help you find a solution that will work for your smile.

What Causes Teeth to Stain?

There are many causes of surface stains, including tobacco use, certain medications and foods, and drinks such as coffee, tea and colas can cause teeth to become stained or discolored. These respond well to teeth whitening.

However, some causes of discoloration don’t. Of course, if your tooth has decay, whitening won’t help. It also won’t help if your tooth is infected, or if it’s been bruised by trauma. During the aging process, the outer layer of enamel on our teeth wears down, and the naturally yellow color of the dentin underneath begins to show, and whitening can’t help with this, either. It also won’t help if you have defects in the enamel structure.

Zoom! Professional Teeth Whitening

Zoom! for teeth whiteningWe offer two professional strength teeth-whitening options: Zoom! in-office teeth whitening and Zoom take-home kits.

In just 45 short minutes, you can have a dazzling new smile with the ZOOM! In-office teeth whitening system. By providing this procedure in our office, we can ensure that you get great results without discomfort or causing sensitivity to teeth and gums.

ZOOM! uses a proprietary hydrogen peroxide gel in conjunction with a special light that helps accelerate the process. You are free to lean back relax in our comfy dental chairs, watch television or listen to music.

Zoom! Take-Home Whitening Kits

We also offer Zoom! whitening kits that you use in the comfort of your home, at your convenience. We take impressions of your teeth so that your custom trays fit comfortably. You’ll fill the trays with whitening gel and wear the trays for about 30 minutes each day.

These whiten your teeth more gradually, but can get your teeth whiter than the in-office treatment. Plus, you can use the take-home whiteners to maintain the bright appearance of your smile.

You can combine both types of whitening to achieve and maintain your brightest smile.
