How Does Tooth Whitening Work?

If you are discouraged by your dull and yellow smile, you can safely and quickly revitalize your stained teeth with in-office whitening. Zoom WhiteSpeed is an in-office professional teeth whitening that improves smiles by as much as eight shades of color.

How Does Tooth Whitening Work?
Zoom WhiteSpeed is one of the most popular whitening systems on the market. This is an in-office appointment during which a special bleaching gel will be applied to your teeth. Once applied to your teeth, the bleach is activated by a specialized light that brightens and whitens your smile in just one appointment. Zoom WhiteSpeed comes with an in-home whitening kit that you can use for subsequent touch ups, if needed.

Our office provides custom take home whitening trays. Some patients prefer the convenience and privacy of whitening their teeth in their homes. Our office will provide you with detailed instructions on how to use the whitening gel.

Is Tooth Whitening Safe?
For many of our patients whitening and bleaching their teeth is a safe and effective way to rejuvenate their smile. You can schedule a consultation with our dental team to discuss whether tooth whitening is right for you.

Tooth whitening provides a permanent change to your smile, but over time drinking coffee, tea, wine and smoking could lead to re-staining of your teeth. That is why we always give you take home whitening trays for whitening touch ups.

Keeping Your Teeth White
We advise whitening patients to limit staining beverages and foods and avoid smoking or chewing tobacco altogether. We also recommend:

• Daily flossing
• Twice daily brushing with a fluoride toothpaste and soft brush
• Semi-annual cleanings to remove plaque
• Drinking eight or more glasses of water daily to rinse tooth surfaces and increase saliva production

With good care at home, occasional whitening touch ups and regular professional cleanings at our practice, your smile will stay white indefinitely.
