What is the Process for In-Office Teeth Whitening?

In a single, one-hour treatment session, Zoom!® Teeth Whitening can lighten your teeth up to eight shades. More than 15,000 practices use Zoom! Teeth Whitening, making it the most widely implemented teeth whitening system. Patients across the globe have gained a brighter, whiter smile with this innovative, award-winning teeth whitening procedure.

Prior to your treatment, it is recommended that you have a thorough teeth cleaning, as this removes harmful plaque and tartar build up from around your teeth and gum line. Once you are ready for your teeth whitening procedure, one of our qualified dentists will cover your lips and gums to prevent irritation. Exposing only your teeth, they will apply the Zoom! ® hydrogen peroxide whitening gel to the surface of your teeth before activating a light that will penetrate the enamel and blast away stains.

The whitening gel must stay in place for 15 minutes before it is reapplied. Your dentist can reapply three times in order to achieve desired results. You can expect the entire treatment to take anywhere between 45 minutes to one hour, and once you are finished, you’ll see dramatic results.

What is the Process for Take-Home Teeth Whitening?

Custom whitening trays and bleaching gel

For patients who want to whiten their teeth on their own time, Zoom! ® Teeth Whitening take-home kits can be provided. During your initial appointment, we will take impressions of your teeth, which will be sent off to a dental lab where technicians will custom make your whitening trays.

Once we receive them in our office, we will provide you with your trays and the same high-grade whitening gel. Using the instructions provided by our team, you will wear your trays for a designated amount of time each day for about two weeks. At the end of that timeframe, you will see a noticeably whiter, brighter smile.

During this time, you will need to avoid any stain-causing foods or beverages, and if you smoke, it is strongly suggested that you quit to prevent stains or discoloration. It is also beneficial to use a whitening toothpaste to maintain your results.

How Teeth Whitening Improves Self-Esteem

No one wants to walk into a job interview or meet someone new with a dingy, yellowish smile. Teeth whitening is one of the most popular methods of treatment because of its affordability and long-lasting results. While much of the maintenance requires you to continue practicing proper oral hygiene and avoid certain stain-causing foods and beverages, your teeth will reap the benefits of your good habits, and so will your self-esteem.

When your smile looks its best, you feel your best, and that will help you to land your dream job or hit it off with that special someone.
