Professional Teeth Whitening With Zoom

Teeth whitening with Zoom is an increasingly popular treatment because it’s fast and highly effective for most patients. At Holmes & Palmer Orthodontics, we highly recommend this option for those who experienced tooth discoloration as a result of drinking tea, coffee, dark sodas, red wine, or smokers. The very first step is consulting with one of our orthodontists so they can examine your oral health to ensure that you will benefit from teeth whitening treatment in Charleston, WV. This may be recommended by our team once you complete orthodontic treatment or after the removal of your braces. At this time, they will also evaluate if your existing dental work, such as veneers or crowns, will respond to treatment. We do recommend your teeth are professionally cleaned before coming in for a whitening treatment.

The Process

Zoom employs a light-activated whitening gel that is extremely successful in eliminating deeply embedded stains. Our skilled team will prepare your teeth for the process before applying the Zoom whitening gel and activating it with a special light. First, your lips and gums are covered with a protective covering, leaving only your teeth visible. We will then apply the whitening gel to your teeth for 15 minutes. In conjunction with the hydrogen peroxide Zoom whitening gel, a specific lamp is utilized to erase tooth stains. The gel is reapplied every 15 minutes. The entire process usually takes approximately 45 minutes.

Once the process is complete, a sensitivity gel is applied to your teeth, helping to reduce any discomfort.


Before you leave our office, be sure to take advantage of the Zoom home touch-up kit, which contains everything you need to maintain your great results! Our experts will provide full instructions on how to utilize the kit and what food/drink options are optimal following treatment. You should avoid any drinks or substances that could stain your teeth for at least a few days after teeth whitening for maximum results, and maintaining a good oral hygiene routine, including regular brushing and flossing, will help preserve your pearly white smile. In addition, don’t forget to use whitening toothpaste if you desire a brighter smile—it will only help!
