Best results for teeth whitening

For teeth that are immediately whiter right now or you would rather whiten your teeth over a few nights while you sleep, Dr. McDowell has your answer with Zoom! The Zoom! Take-Home Whitening System uses a revolutionary patent-pending gel to whiten your teeth an average of six shades in three nights*. And you may go even lighter with additional applications.

Strips or paint-on gels are a waste of time. Get your teeth whiter in a fraction of the time with Zoom.

Note: We currently do not offer the Zoom In-Office procedure. We have found that without the use of the take-home trays following the In-Office procedure, the results will not last and slowly fade back to your original shade. Make sure that if you choose to use the Zoom In-Office procedure that you are provided with custom take-home trays to touch up your Zoom results. Make sure this is included in the cost of your Zoom In-Office procedure. Your results will not last without the use of take-home trays!

What can cause tooth discoloration?

There are many causes. The most common include aging and consumption of staining substances such as coffee, tea or tobacco. During tooth formation consumption of tetracycline, certain antibiotics or excessive fluoride may also cause tooth discoloration.

Who may benefit from tooth whitening?

Just about anyone can benefit from tooth whitening. However, treatment may not be as effective for some as it is for others. With an oral exam, Dr. McDowell can determine if you are a candidate for this procedure, including a shade assessment.

Is tooth whitening becoming more popular?

Absolutely! A bright, beautiful smile can make a big difference. The Zoom! Whitening System makes it easier and faster than ever before.

Is tooth whitening safe?

Yes, research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth under the supervision of a dentist is safe. In fact, many dentists consider whitening the safest cosmetic dental procedure available. As with any tooth whitening product, Zoom! is not recommended for children under 13 years of age and pregnant or lactating women.

Do the results last a long time?

By following some simple post whitening care instructions, your teeth will always be lighter than they were before. We recommend flossing, brushing twice daily with Zoom! Whitening Toothpaste, and touch-ups with Zoom! take-home gel. These are professional formula products designed specifically to keep your teeth their brightest. They are available through our office.

Is there any difference between over-the-counter tooth whiteners and Zoom!

Yes! Consulting Dr. McDowell is always the first step to whitening your teeth safely. Over-the-counter tooth whitening strips, brush-on gels and toothpastes take weeks or months to whiten your teeth just a few shades. Zoom! is clinically proven to whiten your teeth six shades* in just one weekend.

Are there any side effects?

Some people experience temporary increased tooth sensitivity to cold during treatment. These symptoms disappear within 1-3 days after interruption or completion of the treatment

How long does Zoom! Take-Home Whitening take?

The Zoom! take-home gel is designed to be worn between four and eight hours per application. Dr. McDowell will advise you on how long you should wear each application. A recent study showed that you can achieve an average improvement of six shades* after just three nights of use. Dr. McDowell will help you determine how many applications are right for you.

How is the Zoom! Take-Home System different from the Zoom! In-Office System?

The main difference between the two systems is that you use the Zoom! Take-Home System in the convenience of your own home over a few nights. The Zoom! In-Office System is performed entirely in the office.
