Teeth Whitening

We offer Zoom! Teeth Whitening in-office and at home procedures for eliminating discoloration to give you a brighter, more attractive smile.

As a person ages, mineral exposure causes the teeth to gradually darken. Over time, some food, drink, or tobacco products also create unattractive yellowish-brown stains. Less commonly, you may experience discoloration due to some medications or bacterial infections.

Most often, stains get deep below the outermost layer of the tooth. Zoom! Whitening uses light treatment to remove the deeply-rooted stains and restore your teeth to their natural white color. Over-the-counter products, such as whitening toothpastes, remove only surface stains.

Whitening procedures are not a solution for all discoloration (e.g. darkening caused by cavities). Similarly, whitening does not work on all stains. Dr. Ho will discuss your options for care with you.  Some cases that are not appropriate for whitening procedures can be effectively treated with restorative options.


At Home Teeth Whitening

We will fabricate a custom tray to fit your teeth, and provide you with a whitening gel ranging from mild to extra strong. Over the course of a few days, you will wear your custom trays for approximately 30 minutes daily. This produces a gradual change in the color of your teeth.
