Cosmetic Dental Whitening


To get your teeth their brightest and whitest, treating them with the ZOOM! system may be your best option.  After evaluating several options, we found the ZOOM! system to be the best.  This in-office system allows a patient to have teeth whitening in a couple of hours.  Take home whitening is included in this system for optimum results.

The patient below is a good friend of the office and allowed us to whiten just his upper teeth to document the amount of color change. Notice the drastic improvement. Shortly after we whitened his lower teeth for a fully bright smile. (We normally whiten both uppers and lowers at the same time.)

FAQ's

WHAT CAUSES TOOTH DISCOLORATION?

There are many causes. The most common include aging and consumption of staining substances such as coffee, tea, colas, tobacco, red wine, etc. During tooth formation, consumption of tetracycline, certain antibiotics or excessive fluoride may also cause tooth discoloration. 

WHO MAY BENEFIT FROM TOOTH WHITENING?

Almost anyone. However, treatment may not be as effective for some as it is for others. We will be able to determine if you are a viable candidate for this procedure through a thorough oral exam, including a shade assessment. 

DO MANY PEOPLE WHITEN THEIR TEETH?

More people than you might imagine. A bright, sparkling smile can make a big difference for everyone. Our Deep Bleaching System has delivered remarkable results. 

IS WHITENING SAFE?

Yes, extensive research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth under the supervision of a dentist is safe. In fact, it is the safest cosmetic dental procedure available. As with any tooth whitening product Deep Bleaching is not recommended for children under 13 years of age and pregnant or lactating women.


HOW DOES IT WORK?

The premise behind most teeth whitening methods is essentially the same – a form of hydrogen peroxide finds its way into the pores of the teeth and bleaches stained particles. The variable is in the type of application, the corresponding strength of the whitening gel and the permeability of the enamel.  What works well for one person may not work well for another.


WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR TEETH WHITENING?

There are two kinds of stain on teeth – superficial and inherent. Superficial stain comes from the things we eat, drink and expose to our teeth. This kind of stain is usually yellowish in nature and yields the best results with teeth whitening systems. Inherent stain comes from things we absorb into our bodies such as minerals, fluoride and various antibiotics such as tetracycline. Ingested, especially at key developmental phases in life, these substances can permanently discolor teeth to the point that no teeth whitening system will have a positive effect. People will often choose to whiten their teeth with veneers, which addresses the teeth color as well as length and shape.
