Is Zoom! Whitening for me?

If you have cracked chipped or severely discolored teeth, then other cosmetic procedures such as veneers may be considered after whitening.
What causes discoloration and staining?
There are many causes of tooth staining and discoloration. Besides well-known culprits like coffee, red wine, and soda, the normal process of aging itself also causes discoloration. Tobacco use, some medications, and eating dark-colored fruits and vegetables also contribute to the problem.
How does Zoom! Whitening work?
Zoom!, is a clinically prove
n whitening system, that uses a powerful light activated gel that oxidizes surface stains without damaging the structure of the tooth itself. After the tooth whitening gel is applied, a UV lamp is used to activate the whitening agent. The procedure is divided into 3 fifteen minute sessions with fresh gel applied at each session. The entire procedure usually takes about a little over an hour, and for patients that follow all recommended protocols, teeth can brighten up to eight shades lighter.
