The Teeth Whitening Process
What to expect with an in-office whitening procedure
Teeth whitening is not a particularly complex procedure, but like teeth straightening, it does require a skilled and experienced hand. First, the dentist will create a record that indicates the current shade of your teeth. Next, your teeth will be polished with pumice to remove any plaque from the surface. To keep your teeth dry, gauze will be placed into your mouth, as well as dental barriers to hold your tongue, lips, cheeks, and gums away from the whitening solution. Now comes the actual teeth whitening -- The front of your teeth will be coated with a whitening gel containing 25% hydrogen
peroxide as the bleaching agent. The solution will be applied for three 15-20 minute intervals, as a low-intensity light is used to activate the gel. Your teeth should gradually turn whiter and whiter with each interval. Once the ideal shade has been reached, the teeth will then be rinsed. The full process should take about an hour, on average. You may experience some sensitivity afterward, which is common, but a fluoride application may be dispensed to aid with that. As your new white smile will require maintenance, we often recommend pairing in-office whitening with take-home trays and whitening gel for touch up application.

In-Home Whitening Kits
Whiten your teeth from the comfort of your home
A professional in-home teeth whitening kit is different from a generic store-bought kit in many ways. If you prefer to experience teeth whitening at home, then this is an excellent way to go. There are a few steps to using the take-home kits, and the process doesn't quite begin at home -- it all starts with a dental appointment. When you visit us to begin the procedure, the current shade of your teeth will be recorded in your dental chart. This will be compared with your final shade when the whitening process is complete.
Next, impressions are taken of your upper and lower teeth with non-toxic dental putty. These impressions are then sent to a lab to make the whitening trays. Expect this to take about one to two weeks. Once the trays are ready, instructions are given to you for how to apply the whitening solution. You will need to brush, floss, and rinse before you begin using the trays. Now begins the process of wearing the trays -- usually an hour per day -- for two weeks, or according to your dentist's instructions.
Naturally, you'll want to avoid eating, drinking, or smoking while you're wearing the trays, and 30 minutes after using them. Certain brands can be worn overnight if you want to go the extra mile. After two weeks of whitening treatment, your results will be tracked. The new shade of your teeth will be compared to the original shade that you recorded earlier. If all goes as planned, you'll find that your teeth are a lot whiter now! Additional whitening solution can be used in the future for maintenance.
Is teeth whitening safe?
Zoom teeth whitening is perfectly safe. The most common complaint raised by patients who undergo teeth whitening is increased sensitivity of the teeth. Besides this minor grievance, however, there are no major health concerns with teeth whitening.
Do whitening toothpastes actually work?
Whitening toothpastes do, in fact, work, but their ability to whiten teeth is limited. They work best in eliminating surface stains -- the kinds that come from drinking coffee or smoking. Whitening toothpastes can't replace the thoroughness of a professional teeth whitening procedure.
What is a good home remedy to whiten teeth?
Try mixing a few teaspoons of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda to make a paste. Apply this paste to your toothbrush and brush with it. Studies have shown that hydrogen peroxide is effective in whitening teeth.
How often should you whiten your teeth?
Zoom whitening usually lasts about a year or two before you require additional maintenance. If you're using over-the-counter products, then the amount of time shortens to about a couple of months.
What is the best age for teeth whitening?
Bleaching is not recommended for anyone under sixteen. This is because the tooth's nerve is enlarged until this age, and teeth whitening could irritate the nerve.
Why don't my smile whitening efforts have any effect?
There are some instances when teeth whitening may not be as effective as expected. That's because when people age, their enamel becomes thinner, revealing yellowish dentin underneath. Bleaching products won't help in this scenario because they don't have any effect on dentin.
Why are my teeth blotchy after whitening?
Sometimes you will notice white spots on your teeth after a whitening procedure. This is nothing to worry about; the spots are caused by a loss of water from tooth enamel and will go away.
Can enamel be restored for whiter teeth?
Once tooth enamel is damaged, it can't be brought back. However, weakened enamel can be remineralized with the help of antibacterial mouthwash and toothpaste. To preserve your enamel, make sure you brush and floss regularly, and see your dentist for routine cleanings and exams.
How does laser teeth whitening work?
For laser teeth whitening, a protective gel is applied to the gums, followed by a whitening compound for the teeth. A pen-like laser is then used to activate the compound, which foams and lifts stains away.
