How does teeth whitening work?

Zoom! whitening works effectively in just three 15-minute sessions. After the application of the whitening gel, the technician shines a specialized Zoom! light on your teeth to break up stains and discolorations.

In just an hour or so, you get teeth that are 5-6 shades whiter than when you came into the office.

Why is professional teeth whitening superior?

You can whiten your teeth at home with over-the-counter products such as strips, toothpastes, and paint-on gels. These products contain low concentrations of whitening solution and, as a result, are relatively ineffective when it comes to whitening your teeth — even if you use them for weeks on end.

Professional teeth whitening with Zoom! uses a medical-strength whitener that works quickly and effectively. The procedure is simple and pain-free. Plus, there’s none of the hassle of messy strips or trays. You don’t have to worry about strips that don’t connect to your teeth evenly, leaving you with teeth that aren’t uniformly brightened. At WPD Dental Group, the team creates custom mouth trays to ensure an even distribution of the whitening gel.

Why do teeth get discolored?

With time, the outer enamel of your teeth wears down, exposing the darker, inner layer. Your teeth start to absorb what you expose them to — such as red wine, coffee, tea, and tobacco. Poor brushing habits can cause further discoloration, as can genetics, certain medications, and trauma.

Zoom! teeth whitening is most effective on stains caused by lifestyle habits, but the team at WPD Dental Group offers other services such as dental veneers and crowns to whiten your teeth if they’re discolored due to trauma or medications.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Teeth whitening is completely safe when applied by the expert technicians at WPD Dental Group. They take care to cover your lips and gums prior to applying the whitening gel to protect these soft tissues from any irritation.

Following treatment, your teeth may be temporarily more sensitive, but this subsides within a few days. You can be confident that Zoom! whitening won’t hurt or damage your teeth or mouth.
