The Zoom! In-Office Whitening System ,
It’s natural for our teeth to lose their sparkle over time. As we age, they can turn yellow which
can damage our self-confidence. Thankfully, brightening your smile is both simple and
affordable with our teeth-whitening dentist, Dr. Pourrahimi. We provide safe and professional
teeth-whitening procedures in our comfortable office setting..
Why do teeth change color?
A consistent routine of brushing and flossing daily will whiten discolored teeth when they
become discolored from surface stains. If your teeth are yellow because the enamel has worn
down and the color of the dentin underneath it has darkened, our teeth-whitening treatments
may be the perfect option for you. Whether it’s age, oral care habits, or genetics, we offer a
variety of teeth-whitening options that will set you on the path to the dazzling smile you
How long do the effects of teeth whitening last?
The condition of your teeth, the degree of the staining, and the bleaching system you choose all
play a part in how white your teeth become and how long they’ll stay white. Just as your teeth
naturally darken over time, so will your new bright smile. Most patients don’t notice any fading
until 6 months to a year after treatment. We offer quick touch-up procedures at any time.
How is teeth whitening done?
We recommend you plan for 2 hours. Dr. Pourrahimi first examines your teeth to make sure
you are a good candidate. Then, we’ll polish your teeth prior to whitening. Once your lips and gums are safely covered with a silicone type gel, you will receive 4 different applications
of whitening gel, each 15 minutes in length.
Will my teeth look too white, opaque, or fake?
Not with Zoom whitening. Our Zoom whitening system gives you natural-looking results every time.
Your teeth will look nice and naturally translucent, with a cleaned up, lighter, and cleaner look.
Is teeth whitening bad for you?
No! Teeth whitening with bleach has been around for years, and our techniques are ADA
approved. The American Dental Association says that hydrogen peroxide whiteners are safe and

How do I keep my teeth white?
If your goal is to keep your teeth at their whitest, brush and floss regularly, quit smoking, limit
stain offenders, such as coffee, tea, and red wine, and regularly attend your dental cleanings.
Do teeth whiteners damage existing dental restorations?
No. Teeth whiteners cause no damage to existing dental restorations, but they won’t lighten the
restorations either. So, make sure to lighten your teeth to the color of your crowns, bridges, etc. so
they match pre-existing restorations.
