Why should I choose teeth whitening?

A brighter smile not only enhances your appearance but also boosts your self-esteem. Regardless whether you have a big event coming up (weddings are a very popular reason!) or whether you are just seeking a boost in your smile for everyday life, we can help. We provide a variety of both in-office whitening as well as custom take-home whitening options. Depending on your needs, a whitening consultation can help you determine what will best meet your goals. Each option has its own unique benefits, and we can help you select the best choice for your lifestyle. There is no need to feel shame about dark teeth, whether it is from stains from coffee, red wine, or tobacco, or from developmental/hereditary darkening of the teeth, or any other myriad of reasons that your smile isn't as dazzling as you desire. Teeth whitening is one of the most straightforward ways to get a cosmetic upgrade with minimal effort and huge payoff!

Teeth are porous. During tooth whitening, these pores open slightly so that stains can be removed.

There are a variety of gels available, based on your sensitivity levels, lifestyle factors, personal preference, etc. A whitening consultation can help determine what will be best for your needs. These trays can often be used for many years to come for at-home touch ups as you desire.

Zoom in-office professional Teeth Whitening

Walk in one shade, and walk out visibly brighter, just in time for your big event, or just to feel a little more confident! In-office Zoom whitening can dramatically brighten your smile in a short period of time, making it one of the most efficient and most powerful options available, by using advanced technology to lighten teeth dramatically in just one session.

Premium Whitening Package

Our Premium Whitening Package is by far our most popular whitening option, offering you the ultimate whitening experience. This results-driven package combines the benefits of both at-home and in-office treatments for exceptional results, as each of those two methods when used alone, has their own limitations. When combined in a very specific way, this comprehensive approach merges prolonged exposure at home with high-strength in-office bleaching, ensuring a brilliantly bright smile that truly stands the test of time.

KÖR Teeth Whitening

KÖR teeth whitening stands out as a revolutionary and highly effective treatment for those seeking a dramatically whiter smile. It is often regarded as the most effective whitening system available. Similar to our Premium Package but using different materials, this unique system combines proprietary at-home and in-office treatments, using lab-designed customized trays, as well as a specially formulated, high potency whitening gel that restores your teeth's ability to absorb oxygen, effectively dissolving stains from deep within the teeth. KÖR is known for its ability to tackle even the most stubborn stains, including developmental enamel defects, fluorosis, deep internal stains caused by medications like tetracycline, as well as extreme age-related teeth darkening. The KÖR whitening system offers a deep and long-lasting whitening solution for a radiant and confident smile, and we are proud to be one of the only offices in the area to offer it!

Zoom On-the-Go Touch-up Pens and Whitening Maintenance

Whether you have just completed a round of whitening, or if you just want a slight boost to your smile with minimal effort, a Zoom Whitening Pen may be right for you. These easy-to-use "pens" use a special click-pen applicator brush for you to paint the whitening gel directly onto your teeth to battle stains. We also have multiple types of whitening gel refills available that you can use in your custom trays, for long term maintenance as well as touch-ups over the years. Maintaining your pearly whites has never been easier!

Frequently Asked Questions

Check out these frequently asked questions, or call us to speak with our team.

How is in-office teeth whitening different from take-home teeth whitening?

Zoom in-office teeth whitening is performed at our office by our dentist and our highly trained dental assistants, ensuring safe and immediate results in a single session. Take-home teeth whitening involves using customized trays and professional-grade whitening gels at your convenience for maximum flexibility as well as sensitivity management. Different gels have different properties based on the goals we are attempting to achieve. Our Premium Package combines the benefits of both of these options, for maximum results that are the brightest and longest lasting. All methods are safe and effective when used correctly; the choice depends on your preferences, current dental status, and timeline. We can help you select the option that best meets your needs!

What results can I expect from in-office teeth whitening and take-home teeth whitening?

Zoom in-office teeth whitening can brighten your smile by several shades in just one visit, delivering instant gratification. Take-home whitening, when used properly, also produces remarkable results, through a longer exposure time. This is great for people who have more sensitive teeth, or who do not want to commit to an in-office session. Your individual results will of course depend on factors like your starting shade and adherence to post-treatment care. Regardless of the method chosen, you'll enjoy a significantly whiter and more radiant smile.

How long does in-office teeth whitening take vs. take-home teeth whitening?

In-office teeth whitening appointments typically take about 90 minutes, and provide immediate results. The "active" whitening portion of that is 60 minutes, broken down into four 15-minute applications, activated by a special light. 

For best results with at-home whitening, most patients will need two consecutive weeks for their initial treatment protocol, depending on the level of whitening desired and diligence in following the recommended treatment plan. 

For our premium package as well as for KOR whitening, the timing is based on your particular needs, which is best assessed during a whitening consultation.
