Zoom2 Chair side Whitening System may be the answer for you.
In just 45 minutes, this safe and effective system can give you the

specially designed light activates the Zoom! Whitening Gel to gently
break down stains on your teeth to put the sparkle back in your

Zoom2 Whitening is very safe while under the supervision of a
trained dentist, like Dr. Ambert . It is one of the safest
procedures in cosmetic dentistry. However, we do not recommend this
procedure for pregnant women or children under age 13.
You will be given some post-whitening care instructions after your
procedure. It is important to maintain a good oral hygiene regimen
post-whitening to preserve your bright, white smile. We also
recommend occasional touch-ups with the Zoom! Take-Home Gel. Your
smile will always be brighter than it was before the procedure, but
by following these simple instructions, you can retain your results
for a long time!
Although the Zoom2 System can help almost anyone, it may not be as
effective in every case. Dr. Ambert can determine if tooth
whitening is a possible option for your case.

As with any tooth whitening product, Zoom! is not recommended for
children under 13 years of age and pregnant or lactating women.
How long do the results last?
By following some simple post-whitening care instructions, your
teeth will always be lighter than they were before. To keep your
teeth looking their best, we recommend flossing, brushing twice
daily, regular dental cleanings and occasional touch-ups with Zoom!
Take-Home gel. These are professional formula products designed
specifically to keep your teeth their brightest. They are available
only through your dental professional.
How does the Zoom! in-office system work?
The Zoom! light activated whitening gel's active ingredient is
Hydrogen Peroxide. As the Hydrogen Peroxide is broken down, oxygen
enters the enamel and dentin, bleaching colored substances while the
structure of the tooth is unchanged. The Zoom! light aids in
activating the hydrogen peroxide and helps it penetrate the surface
of the tooth. A study has shown that use of the Zoom! lamp increases
the effectiveness of the Zoom! gel by 33% or more, giving an average
improvement of eight shades.
