The practice uses Philips Zoom!® whitening systems to give you the bright, white smile you deserve, either in the office or in the convenience of your own home.

Teeth Whitening Q & A

Why do I need teeth whitening?

Dull yellow teeth make you look older and feel self-conscious about your smile. Teeth become discolored and dull from both aging and staining. Substances and foods that stain your teeth include:

  • Tobacco
  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Colas
  • Red wine
  • Berries

Even if you avoid tooth-staining substances, your enamel wears down over time, especially if you brush your teeth too vigorously.

Young, healthy enamel hides the natural but yellowish color of the inner portion of your teeth, which is known as dentin. As the bright, white enamel erodes, the yellow dentin shows through.

Why don’t over-the-counter teeth whiteners work?

The over-the-counter teeth-whitening kits that you buy at the pharmacy don’t have professional-strength ingredients, so can only lighten your teeth a few shades at a time.

You have to use them multiple times to see a noticeable difference. The over-the-counter whiteners may also make your teeth sensitive or irritate your gums.

How is Zoom! whitening so effective?

Zoom! whitening is a professional-strength whitener that uses peroxide molecules to break up stains both on the surface of your enamel and in the darkish inner dentin.

Zoom! whitens your teeth from the inside out, creating dramatically whiter teeth in just 1-2 hours. A Zoom!-whitened smile lasts for a year or more.

Do I have to get Zoom! teeth whitening at the dentist’s office?

You choose from different programs that accommodate how much whitening you need, how much time you can spare for teeth whitening, and your budget. Choices at Cottage Dental include:

Zoom! White Speed

This dramatic 45-minute in-office treatment makes your teeth up to eight shades lighter, removes stains, and whitens your dentin. Your dentist applies a post-treatment gel to protect your results and prevent tooth sensitivity, and gives you a kit for touch-ups.

Zoom! Quick Pro

This combination of an in-office procedure with a take-home kit only keeps you in the dentist’s chair for half an hour. Your teeth are up to four shades lighter after just one treatment. Your take-home kit helps you reach your desired shade at your own convenience.

Zoom! take-home kit

Ask about DayWhite, which you wear for 30 minutes once a day for two weeks, or NightWhite, which you can wear for 2-4 hours or overnight.
