"A dark red wine stained a couple of very visible teeth over the Fourth of July week-end. My smile became a real fright! The office was closed for the holiday, but as soon as they received my message they squeezed me into their already filled schedule and polished my teeth back to their perfect pearly white. The entire staff and especially Dr. Dougherty are absolutely the best.

Should I Have Zoom Teeth Whitening?
You may wonder how professional whitening treatments at your dentist's office are different from the over-the-counter whitening kits you can buy from the drugstore, and the answer is in the ingredients. Zoom is more powerful and fast-acting, and it produces noticeable results in just one quick and easy treatment at Dougherty Dental. You are also much less likely to experience tooth sensitivity with an in-office whitening treatment. At your consultation, Dr. Dougherty will assess the condition of your teeth and help you decide if an in-office Zoom professional teeth whitening is best for your goals and needs.
What to Expect With Zoom Teeth Whitening
For the best results, you can schedule your whitening treatment so it follows your cleaning at Dougherty Dental. This will eliminate all of the plaque and tartar from your teeth so the treatment is evenly applied to your enamel. As soon as your teeth are cleaned and dried, your mouth will be covered before the process starts. Every tooth will be painted with at least one layer of whitening varnish. After the gel has had time to penetrate your enamel, the excess gel will be removed from your teeth. A final gel is used to minimize sensitivity and strengthen your teeth, and a special light may be used to accelerate the treatment.
Follow-up After Zoom Teeth Whitening
Dr. Dougherty will talk to you about more specific instructions on how to care for your teeth following your whitening treatment. The best way to sustain your results is to establish a good oral care regimen at home with regular flossing, brushing, and mouthwash rinsing. Biannual dental cleanings and yearly dental exams at Dougherty Dental will also help to brighten your enamel and keep your teeth healthy. You should skip staining drinks, foods, and tobacco products if you'd like your smile to stay bright. You can refresh your results with at-home whitening kits or get another treatment in our office if needed.
Is Teeth Whitening Covered By Insurance?
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure so it's usually not covered by dental insurance. At your initial consultation with Dr. Paul Dougherty, he can go over your choices and help you decide on the teeth whitening method that best fits your cosmetic goals and budget. Dr. Dougherty will also discuss the payment methods we take and low-interest medical financing to make your procedure more affordable.
