Zoom! In Office Whitening

Your smile is important. It's one of the first things you notice when you meet someone. A whiter, brighter smile is beautiful - it can help you feel better about yourself and make a memorable impression.
Your lifestyle and the aging process can stain and darken your teeth. Many things we do on a regular basis can contribute to stained teeth, such as drinking coffee, tea, cola and red wine or smoking.
Whitening can get your smile looking its best. You should look for a whitening procedure that is:
  • Fast and convenient
  • Long lasting
  • Low sensitivity
  • Proven to be safe and effective
  • Performed by a Dental Professional
The Zoom! In-Office Whitening System is a revolutionary tooth whitening procedure. It's safe effective and very fast. In about an hour, your teeth will be dramatically whiter. Zoom! Whitening is ideal for anyone looking for immediate results. The convenience of Boost! in comparison to days of wearing trays and gradual whitening makes it the perfect choice for the busy patient.
Zoom! is a scientifically formulated, pH balanced Hydrogen Peroxide that is light activated and gently penetrates the teeth to remove deep stains and discoloration. With proper care and an occasional touch-up at home, your whiter smile will sparkle for years.
At our office we require 2 appointments to complete your Zoom! whitening treatment.
At the 1st visit: Consultation:
The consultation appointment is about 45 minutes long. We screen you to make sure you are an eligible candidate for the Zoom! procedure. We also go over all of the consent forms and provide you with a fluoride toothpaste to use until you come back for the actual treatment. We will go over before, during & after instructions, along with answering any questions you may have. We also take impressions so that we may give you a set of upper and lower trays to touch up your smile at home. Payment for the treatment is due at this visit. We will then schedule you at the most, 2 weeks out (depending on your sensitivity factor) for the actual treatment.
At the 2nd visit: Treatment:
The Zoom! whitening treatment is about an hour long. Once we have prepared your teeth for the whitening series, you will go through 4 sessions of 15 minutes each. Once finished we will document your shade change and go over the at home whitening instructions as well as remind you of the post procedure instructions.
If You Are Not an Established Patient:
If you are not an established patient with us you must bring a release letter from your current dentist, which should state that you are an eligible candidate for the Boost! treatment, and that the procedure will not interfere with any current or future treatment you may need.

At Home Whitening

This in another option to getting a whiter, brighter smile.
This procedure consists of take home trays in which you can whiten at your home at your convenience. If you are looking for immediate results, this is a slower procedure compared to the Zoom! in office whitening & you must have the discipline to keep up with this at home. The procedure is a two visit process at our office.
Appointment 1: 30-45 minutes. At this visit we will take impressions both your upper and lower teeth. We will then bring you back 1 week later for the next visit.
Appointment 2:15-30 minutes. At the second apportionment we will deliver the whitening trays and molds to you, along with the bleach and instruction for use.
