What Is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening is about as straightforward a treatment as possible: it aims to whiten your teeth and remove stains. Many people find their teeth becoming discolored after years of various habits, including:
  • Drinking tea and coffee
  • Smoking tobacco
  • Eating teeth-staining foods
However, the color of your teeth might also simply be related to your genes. While discolored teeth are not necessarily a sign of unhealthy teeth, they can still have an impact on your life and how you feel about your smile. Teeth whitening aims to remove stains and brighten your teeth so your smile can truly shine. Sometimes, no amount of toothpaste and toothbrushing will keep your teeth white. That is what professional teeth whitening is for.

Benefits of Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental treatment. While it does not treat and dental health concerns, it certainly still comes with a range of benefits. It is no secret that our smile plays a major role in our lives. So it is important to feel good about how your smile looks, to feel confident in showing those pearly whites in moments of joy and happiness with those around you.
When you get professional teeth whitening, you gain the benefits of:
  • Brighter, whiter teeth
  • A smile that can build confidence
  • Removal of stubborn stains that don’t respond to brushing
  • Safer treatment with better results
With a brighter smile and confidence in that smile, you can also see other benefits in your life. For example, smiling more often is linked to overall better mental health, which can then benefit your overall health. In other words, teeth whitening can radiate positive effects into other aspects of your life.

Is Teeth Whitening Right for Me?

If you want whiter teeth, then teeth whitening could be for you. This treatment is highly effective for removing surface stains and brightening your smile overall. The results it delivers make it one of our most popular cosmetic treatments overall, with patients reporting high rates of satisfaction.
For patients with more severe stains or damage to their teeth, we may recommend trying dental veneers. These are an excellent option for patients who need a stronger overhaul of their teeth. When you come in for your appointment, Dr. Joshi can examine your teeth and let you know what cosmetic treatment will give you the results (and the smile) you have been dreaming about.
However, it is important not to mix up teeth whitening with teeth cleaning. Both treatments have plenty of benefits, but having your teeth cleaned is still important for your overall dental health.

What Is the Process Like?

We offer two options for professional teeth whitening: an in-office Zoom Whitening and a take-home tray whitening. For tray whitening, we create custom trays for you to use along with professional whitening gel. You wear these trays for a certain amount of time each day (up to a couple of hours) for a set period of time. The total time for this treatment can vary and depends on the amount of whitening you want to achieve.

In-office whitening is popular for its speed and efficiency. For some patients, you may get your teeth to the desired level of whiteness in a single visit! Choosing the right option for you depends on your goals and what is most convenient for you. During your appointment, Dr. Joshi can discuss the benefits of each type of teeth whitening to help you decide which is the right one for you.
Both options are comfortable and should not cause any significant issues when done properly. If you choose take-home trays, however, it is crucial to follow the instructions completely to enjoy optimal and safe results.

How Does Zoom Teeth Whitening Work?

Unlike other whitening systems, Zoom! Whitening is a simple and short procedure performed by your dentist. Not only is it safe and comfortable, but the results are immediate and long-lasting.

One 45-60 minute session of Zoom! Whitening is all it takes to brighten your smile up to eight shades.

Your lips and gums are covered so only your teeth are exposed. Your dentist then applies the Zoom! whitening gel and uses the specially designed Zoom! light on your teeth. Together, the light and gel gently break up and remove any stains and discoloration. This is repeated 3-4 times in 15 minute increments.

After the procedure, your dentist may provide you with touch-up trays to maintain your new smile. Then, you are finished and can enjoy a brighter and whiter smile!
