How We Lose Our Natural Glowing Smile
As we age, our teeth naturally begin to lose their enamel, and with it the beautiful white shade. Lifestyle choices can also play a role in our shade of teeth. Certain foods and beverages that are known to stain your teeth can cause your teeth to darken over time. Luckily, with advances in technology your teeth can regain their youthful glow with Zoom! whitening.
Zoom! At Home or In Our Office
Zoom! in-office whitening treatment is a noninvasive procedure that utilizes the combination of lasers and gel to lighten stubborn stains or discoloration on the enamel’s surface. After the gel is applied, a lamp will radiate a special light that will break down the gel and remove discoloration. This treatment can leave your teeth up to eight shades brighter in less than an hour!
Or you can choose to receive the at-home kit which can lighten your teeth up to six shades in just three nights--or more with continued use. With Zoom! at-home whitening kits, the process is simple and there are various options available so you can choose what works best for your needs and lifestyle.
You’ll apply a teardrop size of the gel onto your trays and wear them for the recommended duration. With Zoom! DayWhite you’ll wear them for 30 to 90 minutes per day. With Zoom! NiteWhite, you’ll wear your trays for two to four hours or overnight for faster results.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is in-office whitening better than at-home whitening?
Dental offices are allowed to administer whitening treatments that have a higher concentration of a bleaching agent called hydrogen peroxide. This provides results instantly-- without having to wait weeks compared to store-bought whitening treatments. Our treatments are applied by trained professionals to avoid contact with your gums for maximum benefits.

Is Zoom! whitening bad for your teeth?
Zoom! whitening hasn’t been shown to damage enamel. However, the high concentration bleaching agent may cause some patients to experience sensitivity. Any sensitivity should be mild and dissipate within a few days after the treatment.
Do teeth whitening treatments damage existing dental restorations?
No, teeth whitening treatments won’t damage your restorations or impact their longevity. However, restorations will not whiten with a teeth whitening treatment. Be sure to notify one of our staff members if you’re considering a teeth whitening treatment and have restorations.
We’ll be happy to explain your options for achieving a whiter smile. If you’re interested in a teeth whitening treatment, schedule a consultation with one of our dentists.
How long does Zoom! whitening last?
The effects of the treatment typically lasts between 12 to 24 months. The length of time you’ll experience benefits depends on lifestyle choices following the treatment and the condition of your teeth prior to the treatment.
To get the most out of your treatment, you’ll want to avoid smoking, as well as certain food and beverages that are known to stain your teeth. Some of which include:
- Red wine
- Certain berries
- Dark sodas
It’s especially important to avoid these foods and beverages for the first week. Minimizing your consumption thereafter will improve the longevity of the whitening effects.
