One of the quickest and most effective ways to whiten teeth, OX provides Zoom Whitening to brighten your smile.

What Is Zoom Whitening?

Zoom Teeth Whitening is a healthy, safe, and effective way of lightening the natural color of your teeth. It uses a special whitening gel and a professional blue light to penetrate deep into your teeth to remove stains and discoloration. The procedure is quick, with most people experiencing as much as eight shades whiter in as little as 1 hour. Zoom Teeth Whitening is one of the best ways to brighten your smile and give you a fresh start.

How does Zoom Teeth Whitening work?

Our orthodontists use Philips Zoom Whitespeed as our in-office teeth whitening treatment of choice. This product is the #1 most requested professional whitening product and is safe for your teeth and comfortable for you. Here’s how it works.


We assess the current shade of your teeth and determine the optimal shade of white for your best smile.


We schedule one hour to consolidate four 15-minute bleaching sessions for you in which the Zoom whitening gel will be applied to your teeth. An LED-powered light activates the gel to break down stains on your teeth, accelerating the process.


After your treatment sessions are done, we’ll provide you with a custom kit to maintain your newly brightened smile at home.
