ZOOM! Teeth Whitening

ZOOM! Teeth Whitening treatments in Buffalo, NY are a great way for men and women to whiten and brighten teeth both safely and effectively. Over time our teeth tend to become discolored or stained.  Whether this is from smoking, coffee, or any other foods or drinks, restoring a beautiful smile is easier than you think.  Doctors Ben and Julia Oppenheimer offer a safe, inexpensive solution to discolored teeth.  A single office visit is all you need to get the whiter, brighter smile you’ve been dreaming about.

ZOOM! Teeth Whitening is a bleaching process widely used throughout the country and around the world to lighten discoloration of enamel and dentin. Our ZOOM! in-office whitening procedure uses the ZOOM! Advanced Power Chairside Lamp – accelerating the bleaching process – which activates the 25 percent hydrogen peroxide whitening. As the hydrogen peroxide is broken down in and around the teeth, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin to bleach stained substances, leaving the structure of the tooth unchanged.

The ZOOM! Teeth Whitening Procedure

The complete ZOOM! Teeth Whitening procedure in Buffalo takes less than an hour to complete. Your treatment will begin with a short preparation to cover your lips and gums, protecting them while leaving your teeth exposed. The ZOOM! hydrogen peroxide whitening gel will then be applied, which works together with the ZOOM! light to penetrate the teeth and break up the stains and discoloration.

The gel is applied for three 15-minute sessions of light activation, for a total treatment time of 45 minutes; the gel remains in on the teeth for three periods of 15 minutes while the light is activated. Immediately following, a sensitivity-reducing fluoride paste-gel is applied to the teeth.


Sensitivity during treatment may occur for some patients,  The ZOOM! light produces minimal heat, which is usually the source of discomfort. Very rarely, patients experience minor tingling immediately after the procedure, but always dissipates. As us for an anti-sensitivity toothpaste prior to treatment to lessen sensitivity.

As with other tooth whitening procedures and products, ZOOM! Teeth Whitening  in Buffalo is not recommended for children under 13 years of age, or for pregnant or lactating women. Also, it is important to remember that depending on the state you’re your teeth, whitening treatments may not be as effective for some patients as it is for others. Only we can determine if ZOOM! Teeth Whitening is right for you after performing a thorough oral examination that includes a shade assessment.


To help maintain your newly whitened teeth, patients are given a ZOOM! home-use touch-up kit, including custom-fitted whitening trays. By following the simple post-whitening care instructions, your teeth will be shades lighter than they were before.

For whitening results that are usually between 6 and 10 shades whiter, stop in and see Doctors Ben and Julia Oppenheimer and find out more about Zoom! Teeth Whitening procedures in Buffalo today!
