To keep your teeth looking their best we recommend flossing brushing twice daily and occasional touch-ups with the ZOOM take home kit. These are professionally formulated products designed specifically to keep your teeth their brightest. They are available through the office.

How does the ZOOM Teeth Whitening In-Office System Work?
The ZOOM light-activated teeth whitening gel's active ingredient is Hydrogen Peroxide. As the Hydrogen Peroxide gel is broken down, Oxygen enters the enamel bleaching colored substances while the structure of the tooth is unchanged. Zoom whitening light aids in activating the hydrogen peroxide and help penetrate the surface of the tooth.

With teeth whitening some people experience temporary increased tooth sensitivity to cold during treatment. These symptoms disappear within 1-3 days after completion of the teeth whitening treatment.

The complete teeth whitening procedure takes just over an hour. The teeth whitening begins with a preparation period followed by 45 minutes of whitening. A cleaning is recommended prior to the actual ZOOM Teeth Whitening session.
What is Clear Aligner Therapy?
Invisalign/ClearCorrect is the invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces, using a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets. You wear each set of clear invisible aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move - little by little, week by week - until they have straightened to the final position.
Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
How Does ClearCorrect Aligner Therapy Work?
We will utilize 3D computer imaging technology to demonstrate the complete treatment plan from the initial position to the final desired position. This imaging technology is then used to design an individualized series of custom-made aligners. The patient wears the aligner for about two weeks while the teeth move incrementally. After two weeks, the current aligner is replaced with the next one until the final position is achieved.
What do aligners look like?
Aligners are clear and nearly invisible, and are sometimes referred to as invisible braces, hidden braces, or clear braces. If you've ever seen clear tooth-whitening trays, that should give you a good idea what the aligners look like. Invisalign aligners are custom made to fit and move your teeth.
Will the treatment be painful?
Each time you change to a new aligner, there may be some temporary discomfort while your teeth adjust to their new position. It is completely normal and is a good sign that the treatment is working.
Will wearing ClearCorrect Aligners affect my speech?
Some people are affected more than others, but most adjust in a short period of time to the feeling of the aligners and do not have permanent changes in their speech.
How often will I have to wear my aligners?
Invisalign only works while you're wearing the aligners. It's recommended that you wear your aligners full-time, day and night, except to eat, brush and floss your teeth.
How much does ClearCorrect Aligner Therapy cost?
Cost is always a concern, price of treatment is determined by the degree of difficulty of the case. It is typically in the same range as ordinary metal braces. The payment plans offered such as Care Credit could bring the monthly payments under $100.00 per month.
Does ClearCorrect Aligner really work?
Yes. In orthodontic and dental practices nationwide, ClearCorrect has been proven effective at straightening teeth. Nine out of ten patients are "very satisfied" with their ClearCorrect experience.
