Whitening is a safe, fast, and effective way to brighten your smile during one visit to our office. A gentle hydrogen peroxide-based whitening gel is applied to your teeth and then is exposed to a high-intensity light, leaving your teeth up to 6-10 shades whiter. The procedure takes about an hour and patients may comfortably watch tv or listen to music while they wait. The most common side effect is increased sensitivity to cold for 24-36 hours. The Zoom! Whitening procedure is much more convenient than wearing trays or strips, which make it a great option for our busy patients. The Zoom! procedure also includes trays for at home touch ups.
