Nine Shades Lighter in Just an Hour
Imagine your teeth being up to nine shades lighter – wouldn’t you be proud to share your smile? It is incredible how much difference beautiful, white teeth can make in your overall appearance, and At Hillock Family Dentistry, we do the job right.
Our advanced teeth whitening system produces a miraculous change, and we are happy to make it available to our patients in Modesto.
How Does Zoom! Work?
The process takes very little of your time – with amazing results. If you are prepared to spend just an hour of your time in our comfortable, friendly office, a brilliant smile can be yours. The first step involves covering your lips and gums to protect them from the whitening gel.
Only your teeth are exposed. Our dental assistant will then apply the formula to your teeth. The gel is a hydrogen peroxide whitening gel that activates with the Zoom blue light to penetrate deep within the tooth structure to remove stains that cannot be reached with whitening strips. The gel is applied three times for 15 minute sessions.
As far as finding the best method of teeth whitening in Modesto, look no further - this is it.
We Can Help You Have a Brilliant, White Smile – In Just Minutes.
At Hillock Family Dentistry, every member of our team works to provide the highest level of comfort in every procedure, including during in-office teeth whitening. You will be lying back, relaxing, while the product does its magic.

Your Smile: It Matters to Us!
We love to perform our in-office teeth whitening treatments – our patients are thrilled to see the difference in color – up to nine shades whiter. The procedure is so comfortable that some patients have actually fallen asleep during treatment. To maintain the look, you must avoid any dark colored food or drink for two days – if you need coffee, and can’t pass it up, drink it through a straw.
Don’t eat berries, tea, coffee, or any other dark-colored and potentially staining food while your teeth are recovering, as the inner part of the teeth, called the “dentin” has been bleached, and the porous enamel protecting the structure needs to recover – the inner part of your teeth is dehydrated after treatment and will easily absorb dark colored drinks or foods. It is well worth the wait!
Tooth Sensitivity: What’s the Story?
Some patients have very sensitive teeth and may experience pain when drinking hot or cold liquids. While most patients don’t experience any pain or discomfort with our in-office teeth whitening treatment, those with sensitive teeth can make the process more comfortable by doing the following:
- Use toothpaste for sensitive teeth for at least a week before treatment.
- Special gels and toothpastes can be recommended for after your treatment.
- Brush your teeth with a gentle touch and a soft toothbrush, with lukewarm water.
- Leave the toothpaste on your teeth for a few minutes before rinsing.
- Prior to using your home touch-up kit, brush your teeth with toothpaste for sensitive teeth, and it can even be placed in your trays after your touch-up for about 10 to 20 minutes to reduce any remaining sensitivity.
If you have any fear about undergoing this treatment, talk to our friendly team member about it so we can help! We have options that can help you achieve brilliant teeth, even if they tend to be quite sensitive. Safe and effective teeth whitening in Modesto, CA has never before been so easy.
