Also known as bleaching, professional teeth whitening is a long-lasting solution to a common problem: healthy but dingy, stained, or yellowed teeth. It is not always effective against deep stains or pitting, but can whiten most tooth discoloration. Emerson Dental offers both in-office Zoom whitening and take home whitening products. Keep in mind that if you have any existing dental disease, it must be addressed before we can safely whiten your teeth.

Zoom (In-Office) Teeth Whitening


 Those who prefer to whiten their teeth quickly generally choose in-office teeth whitening. This method provides the best whitening result. We start with impressions for a customized at home whitening tray. At your office whitening visit we begin by protecting your gums with a blocking gel, then we will apply a powerful bleaching agent containing hydrogen peroxide to your teeth. A specialized LED light will be used to boost the results. You will be provided with your customized take home trays and professional strength whitening gel to continue the process at home.

At-Home Teeth Whitening


Almost anyone can benefit from teeth whitening. However, treatment results vary and may not be as effective for some patients as it is for others. Make an appointment with Emerson Dental and our doctors can determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure by doing a thorough oral exam, including a current shade assessment of your teeth.

Tooth Whitening FAQ


What causes teeth to discolor?


The most common causes are aging and the consumption of foods and beverages which stain your teeth, such as colas, coffee, tea, tobacco, red wine, etc. Another type of discoloration can occur while teeth are forming. This type of discoloration is due to the use of tetracycline, an antibiotic. Excessive amounts of fluoride may also cause tooth discoloration.
