Day White is an advanced tooth whitening formula that will safely and effectively whiten your teeth.  The Cool Mint flavored gel is applied by the patient at home with a clear, custom fitted tray.  While other take-home teeth whitening gels usually require the patient to wear the gel for eight hours, Day White achieves the same results in a much more convenient time frame.

Nite White is another safe and effective choice in tooth whitening.  The thick Peppermint flavored teeth whitening cream is placed in a clear, custom fitted tray and worn while you sleep.  This is the way to achieve maximum tooth whitening results with total convenience.  In a little over a week you can achieve exceptional whitening!

Zoom2! Advanced Power in office Instant Teeth Whitening System

Zoom! is safe, effective, very fast, and performed only by a dental professional.

 All Zoom! patients have a current hygiene cleaning and dental examination before being eligible for the Zoom! procedure.  We also require that all patients scheduling for Zoom! brush with Fluoridex desensitizing paste for a minimum of 10 days prior to their Zoom! treatment.  This will be provided by our office an included in the cost of the total treatment.

 The procedure is simple, it begins with a short preparation to cover your lips and gums, leaving only your teeth exposed.  The Zoom clinician then applies the proprietary Zoom! whitening gel, which was specifically designed to be used with the Zoom! light.  The light and gel work together to gently penetrate your teeth, breaking up the stains and discoloration.  During this time you can relax, listen to music, watch a dvd, or sleep.  The gel is applied for three to seven 15 minute sessions, for a total treatment time of 60 to 120 minutes.  Ultimately you go home with your instant, brighter, whiter, Zoom! smile.  You will also go home with custom fluoride trays to wear at your leisure to fill with MI Paste, Fluoridex Paste, or to fill with teeth whitening bleach to maintain your new white smile forever.  At every regular 6 month hygiene appointment, we will provide you with a tube of complimentary bleach to keep that Zoom! smile white for Life!  Now doesn’t that make you smile?


Frequently Asked Questions

    Zoom! is a bleaching process that lightens discoloration of enamel and dentin. You may have seen the Zoom! process used on ABC's Extreme Makeover.

    The complete procedure takes about an hour. The procedure begins with a preparation period followed as little as by 45 minutes of bleaching. (A hygiene cleaning is recommended prior to the actual Zoom! whitening session.)

    The Zoom! light activated whitening gel's active ingredient is Hydrogen Peroxide. As the Hydrogen Peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, bleaching colored substances while the structure of the tooth is unchanged. The Zoom! light aids in activating the hydrogen peroxide and helps it penetrate the surface of the tooth. A study has shown that use of the Zoom! lamp increases the effectiveness of the Zoom! gel by 26% or more, giving an average improvement of up to eight shades.

    During the procedure, patients may comfortably watch movies or listen to music. Individuals with a strong gag reflex or anxiety may have difficulty undergoing the entire procedure.

    By following some simple post whitening care instructions, your teeth will always be lighter than they were before. To keep your teeth looking their best, we recommend flossing, brushing twice daily, and occasional touch-ups with whitening gel. These are professional formula products designed specifically to keep your teeth their brightest. They are available only through your dental professional.

    Sensitivity during the treatment may occur with some patients. The Zoom! light generates minimal heat which is the usual source of discomfort. On rare occasions, minor tingling sensations are experienced immediately after the procedure, but always dissipate. You can also ask your dentist to supply you with anti-sensitivity toothpaste for use prior to treatment.

What causes tooth discoloration?
    There are many causes. The most common include aging and consumption of staining substances such as coffee, tea, colas, tobacco, red wine, etc. During tooth formation, consumption of tetracycline, certain antibiotics or excessive fluoride may also cause tooth discoloration.
