What Is Teeth Whitening?

Professional teeth whitening is a cosmetic treatment designed to whiten your teeth and enhance the overall aesthetics of your smile. In professional whitening, a hydrogen peroxide whitening gel is placed on your teeth and either whitens your teeth over time or is activated by a special lamp. Regardless of the option you choose, you can expect professional-grade whitening for a dazzling smile.

Foods & Drinks That Stain Teeth

Although your natural teeth are resilient and meant to last years of repeated use, they're susceptible to staining and discoloration. Repeated consumption of darkly pigmented foods and drinks can dull even the brightest teeth. Additionally, tobacco use is a contributing factor to teeth staining. Some foods and drinks you should avoid or enjoy in moderation include:

  • Coffee
  • Soda
  • Tea
  • Red Wine
  • Tomato Sauce

Our Teeth Whitening Options

We understand that no two patients' needs are exactly alike. That's why at Sterling Dental Town, we take great pride in our extensive selection of teeth whitening options. During your initial visit, Dr. Jamali will conduct an in-depth examination of your teeth, gums, and surrounding structures to determine if it's safe for you to undergo treatment and, if so, which of our options is right for you. We're proud to offer Philips Zoom teeth whitening, which includes:

Full Zoom Whitening: Our most comprehensive teeth whitening package, full Zoom whitening, includes in-office treatment and take-home whitening trays. When you come in for your in-office whitening, we'll use a high-strength whitening gel and a special light to whiten your smile. Afterward, we'll provide you with take-home whitening trays so that you can touch up your smile before significant events like weddings or graduations.

Half Zoom Whitening: This treatment option is ideal for patients that only want in-office teeth whitening or would like to combine it with one of our other restorative or cosmetic options, like crowns or bridges. We'll walk you through the process step-by-step to ensure that you have a total understanding of what in-office treatment entails. We'll also answer any questions you may have.

Take-Home Form-Fitting Trays: Take home whitening treatment consists of professional-grade teeth whitening you can complete conveniently at home. The trays are either form-fitting and pre-filled with a hydrogen peroxide gel, or they are customized to perfectly fit your smile. Both options include potent whitening gel and allow you to whiten your teeth comfortably at your own pace. Before we provide you with your take-home trays, we'll outline how to apply them for maximum results properly. Additionally, you can visit our office to replenish your take-home tray supply if you run low.

Teeth Whitening FAQs

Although teeth whitening is a standard procedure, it's normal to have questions about this unique dental treatment. Dr. Jamali and her staff are eager to answer your questions. Some frequently asked questions include:

Is teeth whitening safe?

Yes. Teeth whitening is a safe treatment, especially when under the supervision of a trained dental professional. It's normal to experience slight tooth sensitivity and gum irritation immediately after treatment. However, these symptoms go away quickly and allow you to enjoy your new, white smile.

Unfortunately, teeth whitening is not permanent. To maximize the time you get to enjoy your whitening results, it's crucial that you properly maintain your teeth through brushing, flossing, and abstaining from darkly pigmented foods. If you notice that your teeth are beginning to discolor, visit our office for further treatment.

It does not. Restorations like crowns and bridges are resistant to stains, but also can't be lightened with teeth whitening treatment. It's critical that you receive any restorative appliances after teeth whitening treatment to better match your restoration's color to your natural teeth.
