At the Southern Dental Implant Center, we believe in providing the best care possible. This means understanding how to best use technology to serve the patient and knowing what techniques are out there to enhance overall dental health and wellness. This explains why we have so many satisfied patients throughout the greater Cordova and Memphis area: they know that our focus is their needs. Whether a patient is looking for porcelain veneers, which can help with a full smile makeover, or the latest in restorative procedures, they can rely on us and our expertise.

One especially effective treatment option out there involves the use of Zoom!® teeth whitening. Let's take a moment to consider how Zoom!® teeth whitening works and may benefit you.

About Zoom!® Teeth Whitening

Zoom!® teeth whitening is one of the most well-known and popular options out there for advanced dental bleaching. Thanks to Zoom!® teeth whitening, a patient can have a smile that is much brighter and whiter. In just a single Zoom!® teeth whitening session, a patient's smile can actually be lightened by up to eight whole shades. That's a remarkable improvement.

How Zoom!® Teeth Whitening Works

During Zoom!® teeth whitening treatment, a patient's teeth are first thoroughly cleaned. A bleaching agent is then applied to their teeth. The patient's teeth are then exposed to a special laser light that helps unlock the deep-penetrating properties of the bleaching gel. This process is repeated two more times in the session to maximize the results.

In all, the Zoom!® teeth whitening session lasts about an hour. For serious tooth discoloration and stains, additional bleaching sessions can be planned as needed.

Ideal Candidates for Zoom!® Teeth Whitening

The best candidates for Zoom!® teeth whitening are people who suffer from superficial dental stains, meaning tooth stains and discoloration that originate at the surface layers of the teeth. They should be in generally good dental health and also have realistic expectations about the Zoom!® teeth whitening process and what can be achieved.

For patients with intrinsic dental stains (stains that come from the inside of the tooth) or with special dental health concerns, we would be more than happy to discuss alternatives during a consultation.
