Teeth whitening is the process of brightening the color of your teeth using a peroxide solution. At Lifetime Smile, we apply the peroxide gel to the surface of the teeth and then use a special light to speed up the whitening process. Teeth whitening does not change the structure of the teeth; it will only lighten their color.
Most patients see dramatic results after just one treatment, while others may achieve a better-looking smile with repeated treatments.
Many over-the-counter products can be used at home to whiten teeth, but the results will not be as significant as those of professional teeth whitening. Additionally, these products are not custom-made and may cause gum irritation and other problems. Professional teeth whitening is monitored by a dentist who can help correct any issues that may arise during the procedure.
Why Do Teeth Become Stained?
Many things can stain your teeth over time, from wine and coffee to berries, tomato sauce, or smoking. In addition, as tooth enamel wears away due to age, the dentin becomes exposed, which is naturally yellow. This is why it’s essential to maintain proper oral hygiene and avoid staining foods if possible.
Fortunately, teeth whitening treatments can reverse the effects of years of staining and restore your smile to its original beauty.
The Benefits of Teeth Whitening
- Teeth whitening is non-invasive and painless. The treatment can be completed in just one or a few visits, allowing you to enjoy your new bright smile quickly!
- Whiter teeth make you look younger and healthier. Your teeth are one of the first things people notice when they meet you for the first time, so keeping them looking their best is essential.
- When stained teeth are whitened, their color is more even overall, creating a more attractive smile.
- Stained teeth can make you feel less confident in social situations. When you feel confident about the appearance of your smile, you are more likely to smile and laugh around others.
- You can face the world with renewed confidence and self-esteem with a bright, youthful smile.

How Does Zoom Teeth Whitening Work?
Zoom whitening is a fast, easy, and effective way to brighten your smile. Your teeth will be noticeably whiter and brighter after only one hour in the dentist’s chair. During your appointment, our dentist will apply the proprietary Zoom whitening gel to your teeth. Then, a laser is used to activate the gel and help it penetrate more deeply into your tooth enamel. The treatment is completely painless and comfortable from start to finish and you’ll leave our office with brilliantly white teeth!
You can maintain your newly whitened smile or whiten your teeth at home instead of at our office by choosing a set of customized trays and our professional strength at-home whitening gel. Simply apply the gel to the tray and insert it into your mouth to treat your teeth while you sleep. After a few weeks of regular use, you’ll have beautifully white teeth. For the best results, you should repeat this process every few months.
