Dr. Steve Gorman offers both professionally-made whitening trays for at-home use and an in-office whitening system.

  • The Philips Zoom in-office treatment whitens teeth up to eight shades lighter in one visit. A whitening solution is applied to your teeth and is activated by a special vibrant light
  • The at-home bleaching service provides you the ultimate flexibility, allowing you to whiten your teeth at home or on the go. We offer several special formulas based on your needs

Both options will remove years of stubborn stains and discoloration from your teeth to significantly transform your smile.

Professional Teeth Whitening FAQs

Answered by our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Gorman!
  • Is teeth whitening bad for your teeth?
    No, professional teeth whitening is safe and doesn’t damage your teeth.

    Tooth sensitivity and gum irritation are two common side effects, but those are temporary and should subside within 48 hours.

  • Does teeth whitening hurt?
    A common side effect of whitening your teeth is tooth sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures.
    This happens more often with over-the-counter products (whitening strips, etc.) because they’re one-size-fits-all.

    However, with professional teeth whitening, we adjust your treatment to minimize the possibility of tooth sensitivity. Dr. Gorman also offers Philip Zoom’s recovery gel to relieve symptoms.

  • How long does teeth whitening last?
    Teeth whitening results last anywhere between a few months to a few years.
    Here are some reasons why your white smile might fade over time

    Consuming stain-causing foods and drinks
    Smoking
    Not maintaining proper oral hygiene

    To keep your smile white for as long as possible, try:

    Avoiding stain-causing foods and drinks
    Drinking water after eating and drinking
    Getting regular dental cleanings
    Using a whitening toothpaste
    Replacing your toothbrush every three months

  • Which is better, in-office or take-home?
    Most of our patients prefer the in-office method because it gives instant results.

    However, take-home trays are a great option if you’d like to whiten your smile gradually.

    You can also use the at-home kit to maintain your white results year-round. Use the trays for one or two days, once or twice per year.

  • Can I whiten my teeth in one day?
    With Philips Zoom teeth whitening, you can.

    It uses professional-grade bleaching gel and blue light to accelerate the whitening process. In just one appointment, you can whiten your smile up to eight shades lighter.

    It’s the perfect option if you have a big event coming up, like a wedding or graduation.
