Get Shades Whiter!

 What is the Zoom Whiting all about?
Zoom Whiting is a bleaching process that lightens the discoloration of enamel.

What is the process for the procedure?
First, you will begin with a short preparation to cover your gums and lips leaving only your teeth exposed. Next, the assistant will apply a whitening gel all over your teeth, then they will apply the light. Now is the time to sit back and relax.

How long is the procedure?
This procedure will last a total of 45 min. Three 15 min. sessions. Between each session, the assistant will reapply the whiting gel.

Are there any side effects?
Some people may experience sensitivity. On rare occasions, tingling may occur after the treatment. You can ask your dentist to prescribe an anti-sensitivity toothpaste before treatment.

This is a fast way to achieve a brighter smile but in my opinion, it's not worth the pain afterward. I have had this procedure twice. The first time, I had no idea what to expect. The second time, I was told the gel was reformulated for people who have sensitive teeth...Well, all I can say is, I will never have this done again!
