Are you happy with your smile? Not all of us were born with picture-perfect teeth, which is where cosmetic dentistry steps in. If you have yellow or brown stained teeth that never lighten up, no matter how many store brands you use, you may be interested in ZOOM! Teeth Whitening at Harlow Dental.

What Is ZOOM! Teeth Whitening?

ZOOM! Teeth Whitening erases heavy yellow or dark staining and discoloration on the surface of your teeth using a laser. It is a straightforward, non-invasive cosmetic dental treatment that typically takes under an hour.

Dr. H. Justin Harlow activates professional-grade hydrogen peroxide-based bleaching gel using the ZOOM! laser on each tooth. Patients will have a noticeably brighter smile once the cosmetic dental treatment is complete.

How Does ZOOM! Work?

While there are many teeth whitening products on the market that promise Hollywood-style results, only a dental professional can safely administer the high concentration bleaching gel without destroying enamel or gum tissue. 

Once the high-intensity laser comes into contact with the peroxide, it can break down stains and releases oxygen, which flushes tooth stains that have set in. 

ZOOM! professional teeth whitening is safe and does not erode your tooth structure. 

Before any cosmetic dental treatment, your Charlotte, NC dentist will perform a dental cleaning and exam. The dental exam lets us identify any underlying oral health issues and resolve them before proceeding. Dental cleanings polish your teeth and remove plaque build-up, which translates to a uniform teeth whitening application (no splotches!)

ZOOM! Treatment After Care

Getting your teeth professionally whitened is a quick process: you can get it done on your lunch hour. Teeth whitening is not a permanent procedure, but patients can extend the life of their treatment by avoiding stain-causing foods and drinks like coffee, wine, curries, or pasta sauces. 

Smoking can quickly stain your teeth (this is a great time to consider quitting).
