Everyone wants a brighter smile! A smile is one of the first things you see when you meet someone new. It instantly tells you a lot about a person, such as if they are friendly or trustworthy. A bright smile from someone can be a sign of confidence or even a sign of flirting. It’s no wonder everyone wants their teeth to be whiter.
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular dental cosmetic procedures today. People get their teeth whitened for many reasons. They might be self-conscious about their tooth color, feel that brighter teeth might help them in business, or simply want to see that flash of white when they look in the mirror. Within one visit to our dental office, your teeth will be noticeably whiter, boosting your confidence and self-esteem, and giving you the smile that you’ve always dreamed of.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?
This fast and cost-effective procedure is great for any patient who wishes to show off a brighter set of pearly whites. Our treatment uses professional-grade and safe bleaching ingredients that can penetrate the enamel and blast away years of stubborn stains. That said, our patients will need to have healthy teeth and gums to be eligible for teeth whitening. If we find any concerns in your smile, such as cavities or gum disease, we’ll need to address them before they can cause complications for your treatment.
How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
When you come to our office, we utilize Zoom! teeth whitening. We believe this is, by far, the best LED Light-Activated Tooth Whitening method available in-office today. It is an all-natural tooth whitening solution, without any harmful chemicals that can cause tremendous levels of tooth sensitivity and pain. After just a few hours of treatment, you will have a pearly white smile that you can be proud of.
If you suffer from sensitive teeth, then Zoom! teeth whitening is the all-natural tooth whitening method for you. Zoom! teeth whitening uses a unique patent-pending tooth whitening gel to brighten your teeth without the pain or sensitivity that you might expect. The formula is applied to your teeth and then activated with a special LED light, penetrating your teeth to erase the yellow staining that can build up over the years.
Tips for Maintaining Your Brighter Smile
With the right care, your professional teeth whitening results will be able to last for a year or more. To make the most of your newly brightened smile, consider:
- Practicing great oral hygiene
- Drinking plenty of water throughout your day
- Avoiding or reducing dark-colored meals and beverages
- Visiting our team for checkups and cleanings every six months
How Much Does Teeth Whitening Cost?
As teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure, there is a chance that your insurance won’t cover treatment. When you are considering in-office tooth whitening, you must compare it to the cost, time, and sensitivity of other, less-effective tooth whitening methods.

How Long Does Teeth Whitening Treatment Take?
Professional teeth whitening treatments aren’t just effective; they’re also incredibly quick. An in-office whitening treatment can lighten your smile up to 8 shades in a single visit. If you have a milestone event or celebration coming up, don’t hesitate to let us know so we can get your smile camera-ready in time; the results will need a little time to fully manifest, but we’re more than happy to work with your schedule!
Does Teeth Whitening Hurt?
You’ll be happy to hear that professional teeth whitening is virtually pain-free! The treatment is catered to each patient’s specific needs, meaning that the chance of you experiencing discomfort or sensitivity is very low. If your teeth are naturally prone to sensitivity, you shouldn’t hesitate to let us know so we can determine the next best steps to make your treatment as comfortable as possible. These options generally include things like specialty toothpaste, spacing out your appointments, or even sedation dentistry if necessary.
What’s the Difference Between Professional and Store-Bought Teeth Whitening?
Although professional and store-bought whitening treatments are both designed to lift stains and discoloration, there is a clear difference between these two options when it comes to the results they provide. While over-the-counter whitening kits rely on one-size-fits-all trays and diluted brighteners, professional treatments utilize high-quality materials and have the added bonus of being supervised by your dentist. Needless to say, this makes it the safer and more effective option!
How Can I Make My Teeth Whitening Treatment Results Last?
Unfortunately, teeth whitening can only provide temporary results; generally, it provides outcomes that last anywhere from a few months to a few years, depending on your commitment to oral hygiene. That said, here are some tips to keep your whitening results intact for as long as possible:
- Brush your teeth twice a day using a soft-bristled toothbrush coupled with fluoride toothpaste.
- Don’t skip flossing; it’s just as important as brushing and is integral in the fight against gum disease, among other problems.
- Be mindful of consumables known to stain teeth including drinks like coffee, tea, soda, red wines and sauces, soy sauces, and more.
- Avoid poor oral habits like smoking and using tobacco—not only are these habits quite unhealthy, but they’re certain to stain your pearly whites.
- Schedule routine preventive care visits with us at least twice a year to keep your smile problem-free.
