For zoom teeth whitening schedule your appointment today!

Before choosing the Zoom in-office teeth whitening procedure, our dentist will consult with you on your goals as well as oral health, to ensure that your teeth are healthy enough to undergo treatment. He or she will note any existing dental work, such as crowns or veneers, which do not respond to conventional whitening agents.


The zoom-in-office teeth whitening procedure itself takes approximately one hour, but it’s generally recommended that it’s preceded by regular teeth cleaning. Prior to your teeth whitening procedure, your mouth is prepped by getting the lips and gums covered, leaving the teeth exposed. Hydrogen peroxide whitening gel (a 25% solution) is applied to the teeth and left for 15 minutes while the Zoom light is activated and applied. This light penetrates the teeth to break up stains and discoloration. The process is repeated two more times (for a total of three 15-minute sessions of light activation) before the procedure is completed. Afterward, a fluoride paste-gel is applied to the teeth to reduce sensitivity.

You will receive a Zoom home-use touch-up kit that includes custom-fitted whitening trays along with instructions from your dentist on how and when to use it.


Zoom is not recommended for children under 13 years of age or for pregnant or lactating women. Additionally, individuals with a strong gag reflex or anxiety may have difficulty undergoing the entire procedure. Speak with your dentist to determine whether this procedure is right for you.
