Marlene Thompson, DDS, shines mouths with Zoom! teeth-whitening treatments, which blanch chompers in about 45 minutes. Before the treatment, x-rays and a cosmetic consultation ensure optimal results and uncover tin soldiers hiding behind tonsils. During the treatment, Dr. Thompson coats enamel in a whitening gel, which has its powers activated by a special Zoom! light. Patients relax as the gel works to lift stains from drinking coffee or chugging motor oil, and soon after, smiles parade from the office about eight shades whiter with a single treatment.
