Teeth Whitening Q & A

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure in which your dentist uses professional-strength products to significantly whiten your teeth, improve their overall appearance, and help you gain confidence. The experts at Center for Advanced Dentistry offer Zoom and Opalescence products to give you the most desirable outcomes.

Is teeth whitening right for me?

To find out if you’re a good candidate for in-office or at-home teeth whitening, your dentist reviews your oral health history and desired outcome. They also complete a dental exam and might take dental X-rays if you’re due for them. Your dentist tailors each teeth whitening treatment to your needs.

What are the different types of teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening treatments available at the Center for Advanced Dentistry include:

Zoom whitening

Zoom whitening makes your teeth many shades whiter after just one treatment. Your dentist covers your lips and gums to expose just your teeth. They apply a whitening gel to the surface of the teeth and use a special Zoom light to accelerate the whitening gel's effects, which penetrates the outermost teeth layers and breaks up stains to give you a brighter smile.

Opalescence™ Boost™ 

Opalescence Boost allows your dentist to whiten teeth without ultraviolet rays or heat from light. The product contains fluoride and potassium nitrate. It strengthens tooth enamel, decreases tooth sensitivity, protects against cavities, and improves overall oral health in addition to whitening your teeth. 

Home whitening products

The cosmetic dentistry team at the Center for Advanced Dentistry offers professional-strength Opalescence home whitening gels that are only available from your dentist. While it might take longer to whiten your teeth using at-home products vs. in-office whitening, you can still achieve the beautiful white smile of your dreams.

How can I keep my teeth white?

Proper at-home oral hygiene is the best way to keep your teeth white between dental visits. Brush your teeth at least two times daily, floss daily, and attend routine teeth cleanings with the experts at the Center for Advanced Dentistry. 

Limit foods and drinks that stain, such as:

  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Soda
  • Tomato sauce
  • Dark juices
  • Popsicles
  • Beets
  • Soy sauce
  • Balsamic vinegar

Despite your best efforts, staining can still occur over time. When it does, schedule a teeth whitening appointment at Center for Advanced Dentistry by phone or online right away.
