Teeth Whitening Q & A

What is Zoom teeth whitening?

Zoom teeth whitening is an innovative solution to stained and discolored teeth. Zoom teeth whitening uses a gentle teeth whitening gel that delivers noticeable and professional results. The Zoom teeth whitening gel is designed to provide effective results while protecting tooth enamel and reducing sensitivity. Zoom treatments can be customized based on your sensitivity level and how quickly you want to see results.

What is in-office whitening?

In-office teeth whitening allows you to whiten your teeth in as little as 45 minutes. To begin the treatment, Dr. Silva performs a preliminary evaluation and cleaning. She then covers the lips, teeth, and gums so that only your teeth are exposed. After applying the whitening gel, Dr. Silva uses the Zoom blue LED to help the solution penetrate your teeth. Once the treatment is done, she applies a fluoride gel to reduce your sensitivity. In-office whitening is quick, comfortable, and convenient.

What is take-home teeth whitening?

If you’re looking to achieve professional quality results in the comfort of your own home, Dr. Silva also offers take-home whitening trays. These trays are custom made from impressions of your teeth and gums to fit you perfectly. The custom-made trays ensure safe and effective use of the whitening gel. Once your trays are made, Dr. Silva instructs you on the proper use of the whitening kit, and you’re on your way to a noticeably whiter smile. Dr. Silva checks your progress during your two-week follow-up appointment. 

When should I see results after teeth whitening?

Both in-office and take-home Zoom whitening are designed to deliver quick, noticeable results. With in-office whitening, you’ll see immediate improvements to the brightness of your smile. With take-home whitening, you’ll begin to see results in as little as two weeks. 

Is teeth whitening safe?

Teeth whitening is a safe and effective solution to stained and discolored teeth. Although some patients experience sensitivity after treatment, the Zoom whitening gel is designed to protect your tooth enamel and reduce sensitivity. Teeth whitening does not increase your risk for tooth damage or decay.
