A sparkling smile can do wonders for your relationships—both personally and professionally.
But over time, teeth can grow dull and yellow with age and become stained by everything from tobacco to wine, coffee, tea, and other foods and beverages. When this occurs, Dr. Sutter can utilize professional teeth whitening to enhance your smile by brightening it noticeably.
He is proud to offer the esteemed Zoom2® teeth whitening system—one of the safest, most effective options for professional whitening in Eugnee, OR.
Zoom2® is one of the simplest, most effective teeth whitening products available for professional use. With Zoom2®, patients can achieve a significantly whiter smile after just a one-hour appointment at our Eugene dental office. This is all thanks to Zoom2®'s revolutionary blue-light technology, which whitens teeth without lasers and with virtually no heat, making it one of the most comfortable teeth whitening systems dentists use today.
When you come to our Eugene dental office for your teeth whitening appointment, our team will start by applying Zoom2®'s specially-formulated bleaching gel carefully to the surface of your teeth. Then, once the gel has been applied, we'll expose it to Zoom2®'s gentle blue light while you relax. After 20 minutes, we'll repeat the process a total of three times. Your whole appointment will take about an hour to complete. When you're done, you'll be able to leave our dental office with a smile that's recognizably whiter and much more confident.
In-office teeth whitening isn't the only option, though. For some, in-office teeth whitening may cause sensitivity. Or it may just be that you want to whiten your smile on your own time and in the comfort of your own home.
That's why Dr. Sutter also offers at-home teeth whitening with Zoom2®. With Zoom2®'s range of at-home teeth whitening products, it's still possible for you to have the kind of bright, dazzling smile you've always dreamed of. To help you, we'll recommend a personal regimen that might include using Zoom2®'s specially-formulated toothpaste, mouthwash, and whitening pens. You can also use a take-home whitening kit with custom-fitted trays to help you even further.
At-home teeth whitening isn't just a great option for patients who want to whiten their smiles at home, though. In-office teeth whitening patients can also use it to help their smiles stay whiter and more confident even longer.

The results of professional teeth whitening in Eugene can last anywhere from a few months to a few years. It really depends on what steps you take to prevent new stains.
After an in-office treatment, you should stick to a “white diet” for about 48 hours. That means you should eat only foods with little or no pigmentation, such as white potatoes, clear liquids, pasta with white sauce, bananas, and other similarly colored items. After the first 48 hours, you can resume a normal diet, but it would be wise to continue limiting dark items, like coffee and berries.
Oral hygiene is also important; brushing and flossing can do much to prevent new surface stains on your teeth. Regularly visiting your dentist for cleanings and checkups is key as well.
No, teeth whitening does not work on crowns or other types of restorations, such as fillings and veneers. If you have any restorations toward the front of your mouth, you might need to get them replaced after your teeth whitening treatment so your entire smile can have a uniform appearance.
