Is Zoom whitening the strongest kind of teeth whitening?

I’ve heard great thing about Zoom whitening for brilliant, white teeth. I’ve heard it’s done in one office visit, which is very convenient. However, I keep envisioning that once episode from Friends, where Ross’ teeth literally glow in dark. What is the strongest kind of teeth whitening that won’t make me look like a fool?

Andrew,

There are many teeth whitening methods that will brighten your smile. If you are looking for noticeable, long-lasting results, professional teeth whitening is the way to go. You likely will not get the results you are after by using over-the-counter whitening toothpaste or strips.

Any method of teeth bleaching should be done by a trained dental professional. Teeth bleaching can cause gum irritation and increased sensitivity if it is not overseen by a dentist. Also, it is wise to consult with a dentist prior to whitening in case there are any treatments required prior to whitening.

Common professional teeth whitening options include:

That is a quick rundown of your options. You will end up with a beautiful, white smile while avoiding the “Ross” look when you see a dentist to administer and monitor your teeth whitening experience. Good luck!
