A brilliantly white smile boosts your confidence and can make you appear more attractive, friendly, and enthusiastic. Dr. Marc Liechtung offers Zoom!® Whitening, the leading teeth whitening system, to dramatically brighten discolored teeth.

What we eat and drink, even medications and the natural aging process, can leave teeth dull and dingy. Our teeth whitening  lightens smiles up to eight shades in just over one hour. We’ll apply Zoom! Whitening gel to your teeth and activate it with a special light. The gel penetrates tooth enamel and dentin to erase stains. In one office visit, you can achieve a stunning smile and a more youthful appearance.

Custom bleaching trays are available for at-home touch-ups. Come see Kew Gardens dentists Dr. Marc Liechtung, DMD and Elena Johnstone, DMD today for all of your teeth whitening needs.

How Safe Is Zoom Teeth Whitening?

The Zoom! In-Office Teeth Whitening System is a revolutionary teeth whitening procedure. It’s safe, effective and fast – very fast. In just over an hour, your teeth will be dramatically whiter. Zoom! Whitening is ideal for anyone looking for immediate results. The convenience of  Zoom Teeth Whitening in comparison to days of wearing trays and gradual whitening makes it the perfect choice for the busy individual.


The Zoom! Whitening procedure is simple and painless. It begins with a short preparation to isolate your lips and gums. Then the proprietary Zoom! Whitening Gel is applied, which is activated by a specially designed light. 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 get even whiter the first few days after the procedure.


The Zoom! Light-activated gel was developed after years of research by Discus Dental the leaders in professional take-home teeth bleaching. The gel is a scientifically formulated, pH balanced hydrogen peroxide that, when activated by the Zoom! light, gently penetrates the teeth to remove deep stains and discoloration. With proper care and an occasional touch-up at home, your whiter smile will sparkle for years.

After brushing and flossing, do you look in the mirror and wonder why your clean teeth look dingy or yellow? You may have even tried a home whitening system, but found the results disappointing.

If this is your life, you need Zoom! Whitening by Discus Dental.

A safe and effective system, Zoom! Whitening is used in over 15,000 dental offices internationally. The painless process can remove the toughest stains and create a dazzlingly white, long-lasting smile in just one hour.

Everyday, your teeth get a thorough workout. While the top layers are made of durable enamel and dentin, they can become discolored by wine, tea, coffee, or tobacco. Even medication, antibiotics, excessive fluoride, and aging can cause stains and discoloration.

You will find a vast variety of over-the-counter home whitening products on the market, the professional Zoom! Whitening system elicits far greater results. If you want whiter teeth, ask us about Zoom! Whitening today.

Lately, the media has been abuzz with articles about the safety of teeth whitening. Extensive research and clinical studies by organizations, such as the American Dental Association, indicate that professional teeth whitening under the supervision of a dentist is safe. In fact, many dentists consider whitening the safest cosmetic dental procedure.

As with any tooth whitening product, Zoom! Whitening is not recommended for children under 13, and pregnant or lactating women. If you have light sensitivity from undergoing PUVA therapy (Psoralen + UV Radiation) or other photochemotherapy, you should not use Zoom! Whitening. People taking light sensitive drugs or substances should also consult the dentist and primary physician prior to using Zoom! Whitening. If you have strong gag reflex or feel anxious about dentistry, talk to your dentist about helpful options.
