Superficial stains on the teeth may be adequately addressed with regular brushing, flossing, or at-home solutions. Still, some over-the-counter teeth whitening products come with a number of undesirable side effects. With professional teeth whitening, however, patients can tackle both surface and deep-set dental stains without unwanted side effects and other downsides. At Ferrari & Aldieri Dental Associates in Farmingdale, NY, Dr. Angela Ferrari and our team of dental specialists offer multiple options for professional teeth whitening, including Zoom QuickPro and WhiteSpeed to address the diverse needs of our patients and help them achieve the brighter, whiter, celebrity smile they desire. Find answers to common Zoom whitening FAQs here, including which types of tooth discoloration may be treated with each teeth whitening treatment available at Ferrari & Aldieri Dental Associates.

Does Zoom teeth whitening really work?

Yes. Zoom whitening is a widely popular and highly recognized treatment option for dramatically brightening a person's smile by reducing or removing staining and other forms of discoloration. At Ferrari & Aldieri Dental Associates, we are proud to offer both QuickPro and WhiteSpeed Zoom whitening solutions, each of which is designed for a unique purpose and may help address a diverse set of concerns.

What kinds of stains can be removed with Zoom whitening?

Not all tooth discoloration is alike. Some stains are superficial — meaning they affect just the surface layer of the teeth and are often associated with staining foods, beverages, and behaviors — while other discoloration penetrates deeper beneath the tooth's surface. Some of the most common types and causes of tooth discoloration that can be effectively addressed with Zoom whitening include:

  • Surface stains
  • Stains caused by tobacco, smoking, red wine, tea, and coffee
  • Yellow teeth
  • Gray teeth
  • Dull teeth
  • Stained teeth caused by certain medications and underlying conditions
  • Age-related tooth discoloration

Which Zoom whitening treatment is right for me?

Prior to your professional teeth whitening, Dr. Ferrari will assess your teeth to determine which Zoom treatment may be most appropriate and effective for you. Generally speaking, Zoom QuickPro may be recommended for surface and superficial staining, while Zoom WhiteSpeed is often suggested for patients who have staining and discoloration that is set within the deeper layers of the tooth. Zoom WhiteSpeed can also address surface stains simultaneously.

How long does Zoom tooth whitening last?

The results of Zoom whitening treatment — both in terms of how many shades whiter your teeth may be and how long the results will last — will vary from patient to patient and will largely depend on how severe the discoloration was to begin with as well as how closely they adhere to their teeth whitening aftercare guidelines. For the longest-lasting Zoom whitening results possible, consider these helpful tips:

  • Do not smoke
  • Avoid red wine, coffee, tea, blueberries, and other staining foods and drinks
  • Brush and/or rinse after eating and drinking, especially staining foods and beverages
  • Brush, floss, and rinse twice daily
  • Schedule biannual dental cleanings
  • Consider a whitening toothpaste as recommended

With these healthy habits, your professional Zoom whitening treatment can keep your smile looking its brightest for 12 – 24 months.
