At Patrick Toms DMD, we understand that a whiter, brighter smile makes for a more confident you. We offer two teeth whitening procedures: Zoom! and passive tray whitening.
Zoom! is a revolutionary tooth whitening procedure that is safe, effective and fast. In just over two hours, your teeth will be dramatically whiter. The convenience of Zoom! in comparison to days of wearing trays makes it the perfect choice for the busy individual.
The Zoom! whitening procedure is simple; it begins with a short preparation to isolate your lips and gums. The clinician then applies the Zoom! whitening gel and activates it with a specially designed light. The procedure is complete once a quick fluoride treatment is applied to the teeth. Afterwards, teeth typically appear several shades lighter. To help maximize and maintain their new smiles, it is recommended that patients periodically use gel trays.
Passive Tray Whitening
Impressions of the teeth are used to create custom trays that fit perfectly over your teeth. Once the trays are completed, patients take them home and place a carbamide peroxide gel in these trays and wear them daily for two hours at a time. The entire process takes 3-4 weeks of daily use. To maintain whitened teeth, patients should wear the trays once a month for two hours.
