Teeth Whitening Q & A    

What are the advantages of professional teeth whitening?

Professional teeth whitening systems, like Zoom!® in-office and at-home treatments, deliver dramatic results in less time than over-the-counter teeth whitening methods. With the Zoom in-office treatment, your dentist applies a whitening gel to your teeth, and you relax comfortably while an LED whitening lamp accelerates the whitening results. In just 45 minutes, you can whiten your teeth up to eight shades!

Zoom combines the latest dental technology and proven chemical formulas that you can’t get with over-the-counter whitening products. Additional advantages of professional teeth whitening at Brite Dental Spa include:

  • Whiten all teeth at the same time
  • Long-lasting results
  • Remove years of stains in under an hour with in-office treatments
  • Closely monitored treatment to ensure your safety and desired results
  • Minimal sensitivity to teeth and gums
  • Post-treatment gel provides added sensitivity protection after whitening

The internal structure of your teeth remains healthy and intact during the Zoom chairside whitening treatment. Take-home trays provide the same level of safety and whitening, but with the convenience of brightening your teeth at home.

What types of stains can the Zoom whitening system remove?

As you get older, the dentin — the inner part of your tooth — begins to yellow. Since enamel is translucent, the yellow dentin is visible. Additionally, years of drinking dark-colored beverages like coffee, tea, soda, and red wine can cause your teeth to appear stained. And if you smoke, tobacco stains your teeth even more.

Both the Zoom in-office and at-home whitening systems bleach these types of stains, so your teeth appear whiter and brighter. At your consultation, your provider examines your teeth and the types of stains you wish to improve so they can recommend the best type of whitening program for your specific needs.

In some cases, such as if your teeth have staining from medications like tetracycline, porcelain veneers are a better solution than teeth whitening.

How long do the results of teeth whitening treatments last?

Results of your whitening treatment can last a year or more if you continue to brush and floss as your provider advises. Avoiding foods and beverages that stain your teeth helps your Zoom results last longer, and quitting smoking can also help maximize your results.

Many adults like to come in for a whitening treatment touch-up after a year. You can also do touch-up treatments at home to keep your desired shade of white.
