Zoom Vs. At Home Teeth Whitening: A Cosmetic Dentist in Murphy Explains

October 4, 2018

Filed under: Uncategorized — drnguyen @ 8:55 pm

Half white smile.Americans are in love with teeth whitening. Around 80% say they wish their teeth where whiter, and it’s for good reason too. Pearly white teeth make you look younger, healthier, more successful, and more confident. There are so many products out there that claim amazing results, but do they really work? Keep reading to learn why many patients are receiving Zoom in-office whitening instead of using at home kits from your cosmetic dentist in Murphy.

What Are Some At-Home Teeth Whitening Options?

A quick trip to your local grocery store aisle will show you truly how many whitening products are out there. See below for some of the most common at-home products people use:

Teeth Whitening Strips

An over-the-counter best-seller, teeth whitening strips are strips that can be placed over your teeth to whiten them. These products work, but they will take weeks to show noticeable results. This whitening product, like most at-home options, does not have the dental grade strength that in-office whitening has.

Whitening Gels

These are the most common at-home whitening kits. You are given trays where you place the gel. These kits are somewhat effective, but many customers complain about uneven whitening results.

Charcoal Powders

This whitening method has become popular in recent years, especially with millennials. Though there are many cases of charcoal lightening teeth, there’s actually no formal evidence supporting its teeth whitening properties.

Why is Zoom In-Office Whitening Better?

Zoom in-office whitening sets itself apart from the competition with 3 main advantages:


As the name may suggest, the speed of Zoom whitening is hard to beat. In just 45 minutes to an hour, your teeth can become 10 shades whiter than when you first stepped in the dentist’s office. No at-home product can come even close to these results.


While some at-home whiteners may be somewhat effective, they can be hard to use. Your local dentist has treated many patients using Zoom whitening, so they know exactly how to give you the safest and most effective teeth whitening.


At-home products simply do not produce the same results that Zoom in-office whitening does. With the ability to whiten your teeth by 10 shades in just one visit, Zoom offers patients a quick, safe, and easy way to achieve their smile goals.

Does Zoom in-office whitening sound like it’s the right option for you? Talk to your dentist in Murphy to schedule your whitening appointment. In less than an hour, you can have a beautiful set of pearly whites!
