Level of Effectiveness Good Great Best
How does it work? Either performed with whitening strips or gel trays that contain peroxide, which are applied directly to the teeth. Numerous treatments are required in which surface stains are gently removed over time. After applying a whitening gel to the teeth, a diode laser is used to remove surface stains and discoloration from enamel. ZOOM!® whitening involves coating the teeth with a whitening gel and applying a low-heat light to the teeth. This process penetrates the whitening product beneath the surface of the teeth to bleach dentin and enamel.
Where are the results? Teeth become immediately whiter, but they require multiple treatments to remove surface stains. Teeth immediately become up to 6 shades whiter after one treatment. Teeth are immediately up to 8 shades whiter after just one treatment.
How long does it take? Each home bleaching treatment takes a couple hours to perform with multiple treatments needed for best results. Laser whitening can be performed in one treatment that takes about an hour to complete. ZOOM!® whitening is performed in one treatment that lasts less than an hour.
How long do the results last? Home bleaching methods can last up to one year. Laser whitening can usually last up to one year. Teeth will always appear whiter than before ZOOM!® whitening treatment. The results typically last for 12 to 18 months.

What Causes Teeth to Discolor?

Numerous factors can cause teeth discoloration, but there are typically three main reasons why your teeth don’t naturally appear as white as they should be.

Extrinsic Discoloration - occurs when the enamel (outer layer of the tooth) becomes stained. Common causes of extrinsic discoloration include coffee, wine, and soda consumption.

Intrinsic Discoloration - occurs when dentin (inner structure of the tooth) is permanently stained. Intrinsic discoloration can be caused by a wide range of things, including too much exposure to fluoride, trauma (internal bleeding) to a tooth, or dentinogenesis imperfecta (tooth disorder).

Aging Discoloration - naturally occurs when the enamel thins and dentin becomes yellow due to the combination of extrinsic and intrinsic factors over time.

The Truth About Teeth Whitening

Years of effective research have proven that professional teeth whitening methods are safe.

Although the type of whitening procedure that is performed has a dramatic effect on the outcome and longevity of your results, you can expect lasting results as long as you take proper care of your teeth in the future.

It is not uncommon for your teeth to become sensitive to hot and cold foods directly after treatment is complete; however, this condition will dissipate over the next couple of days.

Teeth whitening is viewed as an elective procedure and not covered by insurance providers.
