Tooth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile.
Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of most patients, there are a number of ways to whiten teeth. The most popular method is using a home tooth whitening system that will whiten teeth dramatically. Since tooth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate replacement of any old fillings, crowns, etc. Replacement of any restorations will be done after bleaching so they will match the newly bleached teeth.
Tooth whitening is not permanent. A touch-up may be needed every several years, and more often if you smoke, drink coffee, tea, or wine.
Reasons for tooth whitening:
- Fluorosis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development).
- Normal wear of outer tooth layer.
- Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, etc.).
- Yellow, brown stained teeth.
What does tooth whitening involve?
This type of tooth whitening usually requires two visits. At the first appointment, impressions (molds) will be made of your teeth to fabricate custom, clear plastic, trays.
At your second appointment, you will try on the trays for proper fit, and adjustments will be made if necessary. The trays are worn with special whitening solution either twice a day for 30 minutes or overnight for a couple of weeks depending on the degree of staining and desired level of whitening. It is normal to experience tooth sensitivity during the time you are whitening your teeth, but it will subside shortly after you have stopped bleaching.
You will receive care instructions for your teeth and trays, and be encouraged to visit your dentist regularly to help maintain a beautiful, healthy, white smile.

Over time, the natural aging process and your lifestyle (smoking or drinking coffee, tea, or wine) can stain your teeth. To get your smile back to looking its best, you should choose a whitening method that:
- Achieves the longest-lasting results
- Gives you the most naturally brilliant and uniform look
- Is clinically proven to be safe and effective
- Uses a low concentration of active ingredient (hydrogen peroxide)
- Is administered by dental professionals
Here’s how Zoom Works
1. Zoom whitening gel is carefully applied to your teeth.
2. The gel is then activated by Zoom’s patented gentle blue light for 15 minutes while you relax and watch TV or listen to music.
3. This process is repeated three more times before you go home with a naturally brilliant new whiter smile.
Why Zoom is Safe
A study published in the Journal of the American Dental Association confirms Zoom’s teeth-whitening system is safe and effective, and the results last for years.
With Zoom, your entire whitening experience is overseen by a dental professional, ensuring not only safety but also naturally consistent results.
Zoom’s breakthrough blue-light technology allows for the use of a lower active ingredient. Zoom’s proprietary whitening gel contains only 15% hydrogen peroxide, so our clients experience very little or no temporary tooth sensitivity.
Zoom is gentle. There’s no laser and no heat. It’s just gel and soothing light. All you do is sit back, relax, and watch TV or listen to music for an hour.
The Zoom Whitening System has revolutionized tooth whitening with state-of-the-art technology that is safe and effective. Zoom is gentle. There’s no laser, no heat, and no scraping. Our whitening system uses only two simple elements: gel and light.
The Zoom Light
The patented Zoom light is not a laser. It’s a specially designed lamp that shines a gentle, blue light on your teeth. It works in tandem with our proprietary whitening gel to accelerate the whitening process. This light has been clinically proven safe for tooth enamel as well as skin, gums, and other soft tissues. It emits virtually no heat and no harmful UV (ultraviolet) light. Our lamps are uniquely shaped to illuminate and whiten all “smile line” teeth (top and bottom) at the same time, ensuring natural and uniform results.
The Zoom Whitening Gel
The Zoom light is used in combination with our patented whitening gel, which has been optimized for patient safety and maximum results. While other whitening gels contain as much as 35%-50% hydrogen peroxide, Zoom’s proprietary gel contains only 15% peroxide and is buffered at a near-neutral pH value that is compatible with tooth enamel. The gel also contains other ingredients such as glycerin and highly purified water to prevent tooth dehydration and to further ensure safety. The gel is specifically engineered to respond to the blue wavelengths of our light system. When the light illuminates the gel, it activates and safely accelerates the whitening process, achieving amazing results in just one hour.
The Zoom teeth-whitening system is protected by numerous patents and therefore only available at Zoom whitening spas and the dental offices of trained Zoom professionals.
