Tooth Whitening

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.  We are happy and excited to now be offering Philips Zoom with its superior whitening system for a confident, beautiful 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.  With Philips Zoom, we design whitening plan that’s specially customized to your unique needs and smile. Philips Zoom is only available at a dentist's office to ensure the optimum safety, and comes in different treatment types and strengths to fit your lifestyle and sensitivity. 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.

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 and what can I expect?

While results vary from person to person, your smile will be noticeably whiter with Philips Zoom. With Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed, you can get up to eight shades whiter teeth in one 45-minute office visit. Philips Zoom DayWhite and NiteWhite offer a dramatically whiter smile in one to two weeks. And unlike over-the-counter options, we work hand in hand with you until you’re completely satisfied with your results.

How long will my whitening results last?

That’s all dependent on your genetics and habits, but generally around a year. Drinking or eating staining foods or beverages and smoking can limit your results, but you can easily keep your smile shining between treatments with the Zoom Whitening Pen. And brushing with a whitening toothbrush can help maintain your results.
