Is Teeth Whitening Right for Me?
Teeth whitening is an ideal option for healthy teens and adults who would like to lighten their teeth by many shades. Many patients have used over-the-counter products to no avail and are ready to attain real results with professional help. Zoom! works by dissolving and targeting deep-seated stains to improve the cosmetic aspect of your smile. Patients may opt to include Zoom! in their smile makeover treatment plans or schedule a whitening treatment as a stand-alone procedure. During your consultation, our dentist will help you decide if Zoom! or at-home teeth whitening is right for you. Ideal candidates may have discolored teeth that may have been stained by:
- Poor dental health
- Aging enamel
- Coffee, wine, and/or tea
- Illness or medications
Patients with healthy teeth will achieve the best results. During your consultation, our team will assess your overall oral health and create a treatment plan to help you attain your best possible smile cosmetically. It is important to keep in mind that dental restorations such as veneers, fillings, and crowns will not lighten during your treatment. As such, when whitening is included in the smile makeover treatment plan, we will first whiten your teeth, then match your restorations to the shade achieved after Zoom!

The procedure generally takes less than an hour and does not require sedation or anesthesia. Patients with a strong gag reflex may benefit from nitrous oxide though most patients find the treatment tolerable. Before applying the laser, your teeth will be polished to remove anything from the surface. After rinsing and suctioning your mouth, your gums will be protected with a special barrier, and you will be given a pair of glasses to shield your eyes during the treatment. Next, a professional-grade solution will be painted onto your teeth. The solution is activated as we lower the Zoom! laser over your teeth.

Approximately 15 minutes later, we will reapply the whitening solution and reposition the light the continue the process. Many times this is repeated 2 – 3 times before your desired shade is reached. When we have finished, we will rinse and suction your mouth to remove any lingering whitening solution.
