Teeth Whitening Q&A

What is Zoom! teeth whitening?

Zoom! is an in-office teeth whitening option that uses a hydrogen peroxide-based gel. Teeth can be lightened up to eight shades in under an hour, making Zoom one of the fastest and most efficient teeth whitening options available today.

Dr. Zack applies the Zoom gel to each tooth after protecting the gums. Laser light is focused on the treated teeth to accelerate the whitening process.

Results of Zoom teeth whitening are visible right away. If you're looking for dramatic whitening that doesn't require much effort or time, this might be an excellent option for you.

How does the custom take-home teeth whitening system work?

Dr. Zack offers a take-home teeth whitening system that can whiten teeth at least several shades. This system includes custom-made whitening trays that fit your mouth precisely. You place a small amount of whitening gel in the trays every day, and then wear them for at least half an hour at a time.

You likely have to use the custom take-home whitening system for 2-4 weeks. The change is gradual, but most patients can expect to lighten their teeth by a minimum of a few shades.

What is Opalescence Go®?

Opalescence Go is another take-home teeth whitening option. The Opalescence Go system consists of pre-filled whitening trays. While these trays aren't fully customized, they do warm up to mold to your teeth more securely.

The Opalescence Go system is available in two formulas: the 10% hydrogen peroxide trays are worn for 30-60 minutes daily, while the 15% hydrogen peroxide trays are worn for 15-20 minutes a day. Opalescence Go is used daily for 5-10 days, and it's available in melon and mint flavors.

When will you need to whiten your teeth again?

It depends on the type of teeth whitening Dr. Zack uses. Zoom whitening usually lasts for around a year, at which time you may want a follow-up to maintain your smile. Take-home whitening systems may not last as long, but it does vary by patient. Speak to Dr. Zack about when it's safe to whiten your teeth again.
