Zoom Teeth Whitening (Before & After)

We use Zoom® whitening, a well-established and effective ultraviolet tooth whitening system. In the hands of a knowledgeable cosmetic dentist like Dr. Salim and his staff, your smile will safely and quickly improve.

After cleaning your teeth, you will be ready to transform your smile in just one visit, in most cases. Depending on the final results or you personal preference, another session may be necessary in a few cases. We may also advise you to continue the treatment with home whitening trays.

We will first make sure that you are free of any gum disease, tooth infections, and tooth decay. Therefore, it is paramount that an experienced dental professional assesses your dental health before you think about in-office teeth whitening!

The procedure is quite relaxing overall: no pain and no discomfort. You will even find yourself dozing off as you listen to music or watch a movie. This takes place while your caring dentist ensures that all those pesky coffee, tea, and foods stains have disappeared.

Zoom Teeth Whitening (Before & After)

If you choose to whiten your teeth at our office, the price will be affordable, around $450 on average, depending on your needs. Couples receive a 10% discount on their tooth-whitening if they both do the treatment done!

You can further maintain your new brilliant smile by using disposable and preloaded whitening trays once in a while.

Another possibility is to place whitening gels in a pair of custom whitening trays made just for you, periodically. They will help you enjoy more prolonged results.

Now, let’s briefly discuss how teeth whitening is done at Sutton Place Dental Associates.

Zoom® Whitening and Opalescence® Boost

As mentioned above, we will improve your smile with one of the following teeth bleaching methods:

  • • Zoom® Whitening using UV-light for teeth whitening
  • Opalescence® Boost

They are both proven to be safe and effective ways to whiten your teeth.

What is Zoom® teeth whitening?

Zoom® Whitening is a frequently used ultraviolet light tooth whitening procedure. It addresses stains caused by foods and drinks (coffee, red wine, tea, etc.):

  • It generally takes about 1 hour or so to be completed.
  • It consists of three 15 minutes applications of the Zoom whitening gel. These contain hydrogen peroxide (25%), which lightens both enamel and dentin stains.
  • We will cover your eyes, gums, and lips for safety reasons to protect them from the bleaching gel. We will use a hardening resin, or a liquid rubber dam painted over your gums.
  • Makes use of an ultraviolet lamp to speed up the whitening process.
  • Unlike the Opalescence® Boost (see below), light is part of the bleaching process.
  • A small percentage of patients (about 7-8 %) experience sensitivity after a whitening zoom procedure.
  • It subsides significantly after 24 hours and should completely disappear within 48 hours.
  • (If you are concerned about sensitivity, then check Chapter 4: Sensitivity and irritation of the gums after teeth whitening). To address this, we include post-treatment care instructions to apply a fluoride paste-gel to your teeth. We do this right after the procedure.


Zoom teeth whitening results

  • Zoom® teeth whitening can transform your smile and help you achieve up to eight shades lighter teeth than your original color.
  • Have you ever been unhappy because of a dull smile and dwelled over how your once whiter teeth have lost their brilliance? Despite regular daily brushing, flossing, and visits to your dental hygienist, have surface stains from foods, coffee, tea, red wine, and the aging process finally taken their collective toll?
  • In that case, Zoom teeth whitening will brighten up your smile effectively.
  • Is the UV-light whitening the best solution for all dental stains?
  • It depends, as the best candidates for Zoom tooth whitening are stains that can be treated with topical bleaching. These include tobacco, food, or drink stains.
  • Stains due to fluorosis and antibiotics, called intrinsic stains, are extremely resistant to teeth whitening. The final result in such cases may only be a marginal improvement.
  • This is because topical bleaching lightens surrounding enamel, leaving these deeply intrinsic stains intact. In this case, your dentist will advise other options such as dental bonding or porcelain veneers.

Take-home whitening kits for touch-ups

In addition to Zoom teeth whitening, we also offer take-home kits for touch-ups. They will maintain your brighter smile for longer.

Take-home trays are molded from models of your actual teeth. This customization of the whitening trays will protect your gums from the potential leaks of the whitening material. Therefore, you will not have to worry about gum irritation.

Let’s now talk about another safe and effective teeth whitening method we use.

Teeth whitening tray

What is Opalescence® Boost?

It is a professional tooth whitening system that your dentist may use. Here is a summary of its different steps:

  • It takes about an hour, depending on the degree of discoloration of your teeth.
  • It does not need light to activate the gel.
  • It whitens your teeth using a sticky and viscous teeth whitening gel that we place on your teeth.
  • It can also treat other difficult stains like those resulting from:
    • trauma
    • prescription medications (such as tetracycline).
  • It can remove common stains brought about by your lifestyle and eating or drinking substances that stain your teeth (red wine, smoking, …).

After the procedure, you may experience some short-term post-whitening sensitivity.

To alleviate that, your dentist could give you a potassium nitrate gel. You can use it in a customized tray until the condition subsides (usually within 2-3 days).

    Very pleasant office and helpful staff. Finally found an honest dentist who doesn't try to talk you into procedures that you do not need.
