If you prefer teeth that are immediately whiter right now or you would rather whiten your teeth over a few nights while you sleep, Drs. Parker and Taylor have your answer with Zoom! The Zoom! In-Office Whitening System uses the most powerful bleaching agent to whiten your teeth in four fifteen minute sessions. It’s ideal for anyone who wants immediate results.

Who may benefit from tooth whitening?

Just about anyone can benefit from tooth whitening. However, treatment may not be as effective for some as it is for others. With an oral exam, Drs. Parker and Taylor can determine if you are a candidate for this procedure, including a shade assessment.

How long do the results last?

By following some simple post whitening care instructions, your teeth will remain lighter than they were before. We recommend flossing, and brushing twice daily with a whitening toothpaste. Also, avoid consumption of coffee, tea, soft drinks, and tobacco will keep your smile whiter for longer.  Whitening Toothpaste, and touch-ups with Zoom! take-home gel. These are professional formula products designed specifically to keep your teeth their brightest. They are available through our office.

How does the Zoom In-Office System work?

The Zoom! light-activated whitening gel’s active ingredient is hydrogen peroxide. As Hydrogen Peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, bleaching any discolored substance while keeping the structure of the tooth unchanged. The Zoom! light aids in activating the Hydrogen Peroxide and helps it penetrate the surface of the tooth.

Is the Zoom! In-office procedure painful?

No. During the procedure, patients can actually watch television or listen to music. Many fall asleep.

Are there any side effects?

Some people experience temporary increased tooth sensitivity to cold during and after treatment. These symptoms disappear within 1-3 days after interruption or completion of the treatment.

How long is the procedure?

The entire procedure takes just over one hour. The procedure begins with a preparation period followed by one hour of bleaching. A five-minute fluoride treatment completes the procedure (we recommend a cleaning prior to the actual Zoom! Whitening session).
