Teeth whitening, or teeth bleaching, is a simple and safe dental procedure.  We have two teeth whitening options in our practice:  

ZOOM!® in-office teeth whitening is a service that we perform in the dental treatment area.  After isolating the teeth, a special whitening gel that lifts stains away is applied to the tooth surfaces to make them several shades lighter.
  • The ZOOM!® whitening process takes a little over an hour. We make you comfortable with a magazine or music headphones while we complete the whitening treatment.  
  • Over time, dark beverages such as coffee, tea and cola can stain your teeth again. We have touch-up whitening gel refills available for purchase to keep your smile beautifully bright.
Take-home whitening is accomplished using custom mouth trays and professional teeth whitening gel.  We make your trays by first taking a quick dental impression.  
  • Using trays at home for about 30 minutes a day, you can generally expect to see results in 2-3 weeks.  Repeating the whitening treatment periodically will help maintain your results. 
A word about over-the-counter whitening products:  At the Cosmetic Dental Center of Huntsville, our professional dental whitening products are formulated for less sensitivity and maximum results, and, the customized manner in which they are applied is specific to YOUR teeth. 
  • By isolating the teeth for ZOOM!® whitening or using custom trays for home whitening, we create an environment that maximizes tooth surface contact with the bleaching gel.
  • Over-the-counter products use a variety of ingredients and the application process itself is not as consistent as what you can expect from a professional dental office.
