Teeth Whitening FAQs
How much does teeth whitening cost?
The cost of teeth whitening depends on the type of treatment you select. In general, at home teeth whitening costs less than in-office treatment.
How long does teeth whitening last?
How long teeth whitening lasts depends on your maintenance and oral health routine post treatment. You may choose to avoid dark foods and beverage (such as coffee, tea and soda) after treatment to prevent teeth from staining or darkening. Teeth may require periodic touch-ups to maintain their initial bright white appearance.
Are there any teeth whitening side effects?
As with any treatment, there are some teeth whitening side effects. Most frequently, patients report mild to moderate tooth sensitivity. Teeth whitening can also cause irritation to the gums or other soft tissue in the mouth. Teeth whitening side effects generally subside within 1 – 3 days following treatment and most patients experience no side effects at all.

About Zoom Teeth Whitening
Zoom is the number one patient requested brand of teeth whitening in Houston. This advanced teeth whitening procedure is performed in our Houston area dental office in less than an hour. Zoom teeth whitening uses LED technology to produce instant results that can be up to 8 shades lighter. Zoom whitening is ideal if you are looking for immediate results, especially for weddings, graduations, and job interviews. Zoom teeth whitening can also be combined with at home teeth whitening for maximum results.
For in-office whitening, we recommend patients start with a cleaning. Next, we prepare the mouth for the whitening procedure by isolating the lips and gums. The proprietary Zoom Whitening gel is applied to the teeth, which is activated by a specially designed light.
Zoom Whitening Results
Teeth typically become at least six to ten shades whiter – sometimes more! A five minute fluoride treatment completes the procedure. You will be amazed with the results. In most cases, your teeth will continue to whiten in the first few days following the procedure.
Opalescence Boost teeth whitening is an in-office, chemically activated teeth bleaching system that delivers results in under an hour.
Unlike Zoom Teeth Whitening, which uses UV light, Opalescence Boost uses potassium nitrate and fluoride. This combination results in stronger tooth enamel, decreased sensitivity and cavity protection.
At Home Teeth Whitening
Professional at home teeth whitening from Dr. Bimal Mehta, DDS includes custom fit teeth bleaching tray and professional grade bleaching gel.
Our bleaching trays are customized to fit the exact contours of your teeth to assure that the teeth bleaching gel will be administered evenly and properly without causing damage to the gums or tooth enamel.
Take home teeth whitening will provide gradual results that are superior to over the counter options widely available today. With routine dental care, good oral hygiene and periodic touch ups, results can last for a year or more.
