Zoom! Teeth Whitening

Our patients couldn’t be happier with Zoom!® teeth whitening. This advanced whitening technique takes a little over an hour and produces amazing, instantaneous results, right in our office. Zoom!® patients often see at least eight shades improvement, and a significant number see up to 12 shades improvement after undergoing the Zoom!® procedure.

The Zoom!® Chairside Whitening System is the result of three years of intensive research and development by Discus Dental™ and represents the most advanced technology available in tooth whitening. This treatment involves coating the teeth with a paste-like form of hydrogen peroxide. When this paste is exposed to a special Zoom!® lamp, the tooth’s enamel takes on a whiter appearance. This procedure lasts approximately one hour and involves no further at-home treatment. While more convenient than take-home treatments, it is more expensive and follow-up procedures or occasional home whitening are usually necessary.

Patient Concerns

When using the at-home treatment, patient’s teeth may feel a heightened, but temporary, sensitivity. The gums may also feel more sensitive or burn slightly. Not all people experience the quality of whiteness they had hoped for on their first treatment and they may require a “touch-up” treatment. Whitening treatments begin to fade in one to four years. It should be noted that tooth whitening treatments have no effect on the artificial materials used for bonds, veneers, or capped teeth.
