Am I a good candidate for the Zoom!2 tooth whitening treatment?

To discover if this whitening treatment is right for you, you should talk to an experienced cosmetic dentist like Dr. B.J. Henderson. Chances are, if your dental health is in great shape, you will make a good candidate for whitening. People who are especially sensitive to light, are undergoing radiation therapy, or who have melanoma should not have whitening performed. This procedure is also not recommended for women who are pregnant or lactating. If you would like to find out if this procedure is right for you, schedule a comprehensive smile consultation with Dr. Henderson.

What causes tooth discoloration?

Many individuals are born with teeth that are not an ideal shade of white. Smoking can cause yellowing of the enamel. Eating and drinking coffee, tea, soda, berries, wine, and other staining substances can also cause discoloration. Some patients have staining due to the ingestion of tetracycline, fluoride, and certain medications.

Is the Zoom!2 Whitening process safe?

The makers of Zoom!2 put the specially formulated whitening gel through years of clinical research before it was approved by the Food and Drug Administration for public use. At the office of B.J. Henderson, DDS, we do all we can to ensure our patients' safety, including maintaining a sterile environment and using safety glasses during the light activation portion of the treatment.

How many shades can I whiten, and how long will my tooth whitening results last?

Every patient's results are different after the Zoom!2 whitening procedure. Generally speaking, it is possible to see an improvement of up to eight shades. Dr. Henderson can give you an idea of what to expect by showing you before and after photos of actual patients, as well as provide some tips to help keep your teeth looking their brightest. Many patients are able to keep their new shade indefinitely by avoiding staining substances, keeping up with home care, and getting regular dental cleanings. Please note that we cannot make any guarantees as to the end result or the longevity of the whitening results.

Can I get the same results with over-the-counter tooth whiteners?

No. Professional whitening with the Zoom!2 system is a superior way to brighten your smile and provides far better whitening power in a much shorter amount of time.
