ZOOM and Tooth Whitening

The color of your teeth can affect the confidence you have about your smile. Although it is not permanent, tooth whitening (bleaching) is a simple dental treatment used to change the color of your teeth.

Some needs for tooth whitening may include:

  • Fluorosis
  • Normal wear of outer-tooth layer
  • Stained teeth

Touch-ups may be needed every several years when receiving whitening treatment. They may be needed more often if you smoke, drink coffee, tea or wine. Whitening is non-evasive and ideal when enhancing the beauty of your smile.

Teeth whitening and bleaching is simple and easy treatment, it may not be for everyone. For some patients with poor dental health, bleaching may cause some damage. It is important to have Dr. Oakes assess the health of your gums and teeth before receiving whitening treatment.

Crowns are also not bleach-compatible.
