Teeth Whitening Q & A

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is one of the simplest and most popular cosmetic treatments you can get for your smile. At Comprehensive Dental Group, the team uses Philips Zoom! whitening products, which offer these benefits over other whitening systems:

  • All teeth treated at the same time
  • Faster treatment times
  • Longer-lasting results
  • Ability to remove stains from restorations, like crowns or veneers
  • Less sensitivity

Zoom! lightens both the dentin and the enamel of your teeth. The treatment uses a strong hydrogen peroxide product that breaks down into tiny oxygen bubbles, which lift away yellow and tan stains from your teeth. A light activates the gel and speeds up the process without overheating your teeth and causing sensitivity. 

Who can benefit from teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening uses strong products to eliminate certain types of stains, both shallow and deep, from your teeth. Zoom! specifically works on stains and discoloration that take on a yellow or tan shade, which tend to come from foods you eat and other consumable substances. 

Just one session of Zoom! whitening in the office at Comprehensive Dental Group can erase stains from:

  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Cola
  • Juices and berries
  • Chewing tobacco
  • Cigarettes

If you see gray or dark blue in certain teeth, these stains usually do not respond to teeth whitening. They come from medications, trauma to the teeth, or even the natural aging process. 

How long do the results of teeth whitening last?

Stains can continue to accumulate on your teeth after treatment in the same way they did before teeth whitening. You can limit or avoid the foods, beverages, and substances that caused staining in the first place. 

To make your results last for the longest amount of time possible, which is usually several years, you should floss once a day, clean your teeth thoroughly with a toothbrush and anti-sensitivity toothpaste twice a day, and use the Zoom! Weekender treatment on occasion. 

The Zoom! Weekender kit, a teeth whitening system you can use at home, uses similar ingredients to the in-office whitening procedure. However, you can use it on your own time.
