Teeth Whitening or Breaching

The shade of your teeth can affect your overall look with a smile. Also, tooth discoloration and dirt can result from age, smoking, drugs, and even the effects of certain foods and drinks. People with stained or discolored teeth may need a whitening treatment to regain their smile. Teeth whitening is a safe and effective way to brighten stained, discolored, or dull teeth. Whitening is among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures. Even a stubborn single tooth that is noticeably duller than the others can become brightened.

Breaching your teeth is safe under a trained dentist's supervision. The active ingredient of Zoom! is hydrogen peroxide. The gel is applied to the teeth and activated with a specially designed light. A specially designed light activates the Zoom! Whitening Gel gently breaks down stains on your teeth to put the sparkle back in your smile. Teeth whitening lasts from a few months to up to 3 years - it varies from person to person.

How Much Does Teeth Whitening Cost

Dental insurance does not cover teeth whitening, as it is deemed a cosmetic enhancement rather than a medically necessary treatment, similar to manicures. The average expense for in-office teeth whitening typically ranges from $300 to $400 per arch, referring to external whitening on the top or bottom teeth.

Maintaining an excellent oral hygiene regimen post-whitening is essential to preserving the Zoom! In-Office system and our professional strength take-home kits. These safe and effective teeth whitening systems can give you the results you've been wanting.
