Even if you practice optimum oral health care tactics, it is possible to still end up with discolored teeth. Teeth age over time naturally, and brushing and flossing are not enough to bring them back to the shine you may desire. In addition, many habits you have in your life could be harming the color of your teeth, including smoking, foods or drinks capable of staining teeth, various medications, and even some sickness and illnesses. With all the different products and whitening systems in the world today, which teeth whitening treatment is right for you?

The safest and highest quality tooth whitening treatment is usually considered to be in-office treatments professionally administered by our trained dental team. Zoom! Whitening is a professional teeth whitening system which typically takes about an hour to complete and is done in three 15-minutes sessions. After a Zoom! hydrogen peroxide whitening gel is applied to your teeth and activated by a Zoom! Advanced Power Chairside Lamp, the stains and discoloration on your teeth are broken down by the oxygen that fills and cleans the tooth. 

There are also over-the-counter products which you can find online or at a variety of stores. The market is flooded with an abundance of products, some that work and some that do not. Always speak with our dentist before using any tooth whitening product to avoid dangers from products that could damage the gums and tooth enamel.
