Zoom Teeth Whitening is a bleaching process widely used throughout the country and around the world to lighten discolored teeth. Tooth discoloration may result from drinking coffee, tea, cola and red wine; or from smoking. The aging process also can stain and darken your teeth. The Zoom in-office tooth whitening procedure uses the Zoom Advanced Power Chairside Lamp – said to accelerate the bleaching process – to activate the 25 percent hydrogen peroxide whitening.

With Philips Zoom in-office whitening, you can unlock a smile up to 8 shades whiter in just 45 minutes reversing stains from food and drinks. As a bonus, you’ll get outstanding results with little sensitivity following the procedure.

Zoom Teeth Whitening FAQ

Is ZOOM the best teeth whitening technique?
ZOOM is the most popular in-office professional whitening procedure done today. The advantages of ZOOM are the ease of having it done and the shortened time frame to get your teeth whiter. Typically, you can get a whiter color in less than one hour.

Are there any painful side effects after a ZOOM Teeth Whitening session?
Sensitivity is the #1 risk when getting your teeth whitened. Zoom teeth whitening does cause some sensitivity following the procedure which is minimized by taking Advil before and after the procedure. Also, a desensitizing gel is applied at the end of the procedure to help with sensitivity.

What should I drink or eat after a ZOOM Teeth Whitening session?
Your teeth are prone to absorbing stains immediately after ZOOM whitening. The general rule of thumb is that “anything that will stain a white shirt will stain your teeth.” The foods and drinks that we tell our patients to avoid are: coffee, smoking, pasta sauces, soy sauce, ketchup, berries, juices, soda etc. The first 48 hours are crucial.

Will brown stains start to appear again after I get ZOOM Teeth Whitening done?
Teeth have pores and you are in a constant battle with stains everyday. Whitening your teeth is like dyeing your hair – there is always upkeep. ZOOM is a great way to get your teeth white but you need to follow a process to keep them white. We advise patients to use custom made take-home trays to maintain their desired tooth shade.

Do I need to have my teeth cleaned prior to ZOOM teeth whitening?
The simple answer is ‘yes’. The plaque, tartar and/or debris will cause a build-up on your teeth that may not allow the teeth to whiten in certain areas, resulting in uneven coloring on your teeth. However, you do not want your teeth cleaned and whitened on the same day as they will be very sensitive. For best possible results with ZOOM whitening, have it done within a week of your cleaning.

How much does Zoom teeth whitening cost?
We charge $425 for the one hour Zoom teeth whitening procedure which includes the take home whitening kit.
