We offer both in-office whitening for fast results as well as take-home trays that are used for about two weeks. Many patients opt for a combination of both whitening approaches for optimal long-term results.
Having a white, bright smile can do a lot for your self-confidence. Dr. DiBenedetto offers the Zoom whitening system to help men and women throughout the Little Silver, NJ area banish dull smiles and restore teeth to their healthy, natural brilliance.
What is Zoom teeth whitening?
The Zoom teeth whitening treatment system was specifically designed for professional use in a dentist’s office to enable patients to have a white, bright smile in just a single visit. Zoom uses a special whitening gel combined with an activating light to whiten and brighten teeth not just on the surface, but into the deeper layers as well, for consistent results that last for a long time.
What happens during the Zoom whitening procedure?
Prior to whitening, a mouthpiece will be inserted to position your lips away from your mouth so the activating light can reach all your tooth surfaces for better and more consistent coverage and results. The gel is applied with a special applicator and allowed to remain on the tooth surface for about 15 minutes while the activating light shines on the treatment area. Once the time limit has elapsed, the gel will be gently removed from your teeth, and your brighter smile will be ready for the world.
Will I need more than one treatment?
While you’ll see results after a single treatment, most patients benefit from a series of three treatments for optimal results.
Will Zoom whitening cause my teeth to become permanently sensitive to hot and cold temperatures?
No, while you may have some sensitivity immediately after treatment, those issues will quickly resolve. A checkup prior to whitening can help identify tiny cracks or cavities that could increase the sensitivity you experience.
Is the Zoom whitening system better than over-the-counter whitening products?
Yes, Zoom is far superior to the products you can buy in stores. Because it was specially formulated to be used under a dentist’s care, it uses stronger whitening agents for deeper, more consistent and longer-lasting effects compared to over-the-counter products.
