"Dr. Ingber and his staff went out of their way to fit me in as a new patient on a Friday afternoon with extremely short notice. Dr. Ingber was knowledgable and kind, and the staff were very helpful. He explained things clearly too. I would recommend to friends."- J.C. / Google / Sep 06, 2019
"Appointment started on time, more or less. I felt safe removing my mask for the cleaning/X-Rays, etc."- G.K. / Google / May 28, 2021
"Like many people, I dread going to the dentist because of some horrible experiences I’ve had. But I have to say that my recent visit to Ingber Dental for my cleaning was one of the best experiences that I have had. My hygienist, Chanel was very thorough and very gentle. I actually felt myself relaxing. If I could have her as my dental hygienist for the rest of my life I will never miss another cleaning. Fantastic experience! I also had my exam done for the first time by Dr. Kaitlin Delaney. I appreciated her warm professionalism, the thoroughness of her exam and the fact that I didn’t feel like she was rushing between patients. Overall, a fantastic team and fantastic experience!"- M.F. / Google / May 19, 2021

Your treatment at Ingber Dental will be selected and customized to create your desired results. For fast improvements, Zoom QuickPro is designed to remove stains on the enamel's surface from foods, beverages, and tobacco products. Zoom WhiteSpeed can also treat surface stains, but it also treats discoloration from aging and certain medications. During your initial consultation, we will assess your teeth's condition and explain which method best fits your needs and goals. You may also need take-home whitening treatments: Zoom NiteWhite or DayWhite. A home treatment can be used either on its own or after your office Zoom procedure to boost and maintain your results.
What To Expect
Whether you are receiving Zoom QuickPro or WhiteSpeed, you should schedule your whitening treatment to follow your bi-annual professional cleaning at Ingber Dental. This will remove plaque and tartar so the treatment application is even on your enamel. After your teeth are cleaned and dried, your mouth will be protected before the whitening process begins. For Zoom QuickPro, every tooth is coated with a layer of whitening varnish followed by a protective sealant. As soon as your teeth have been evenly coated, you can leave our office. After 30 minutes, you can remove the varnish by brushing your teeth.
For Zoom WhiteSpeed, a whitening gel will be applied to your teeth. After your teeth are covered, a special light will accelerate the whitening process. This will be done three times in the course of about 45 minutes. The excess gel will be removed from the teeth before a post-treatment gel is applied to minimize sensitivity and strengthen your enamel.
We will talk to you about more specific ways to care for your teeth after your Zoom treatment. The best way to sustain your results is to follow a good oral care routine at home with regular brushing, flossing, and mouthwash rinsing. Bi-annual cleanings at Ingber Dental will also help to brighten your enamel and keep your teeth healthy. You should skip staining foods, drinks, and tobacco if you want your teeth to remain bright. You can boost your results with Zoom home kits and get another professional treatment in our office as needed.
Teeth whitening is an elective procedure so it is typically not covered by insurance. During your initial consultation, we will discuss your options and help you decide on the method that fits both your goals and budget. We will also discuss the payment methods we take and medical financing to help make your procedure affordable.
