Teeth Whitening Q&A

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening at Smile Structure Dentistry and Braces uses Zoom! whitening technology to remove staining from discolored teeth. Staining is often inevitable, as many foods and drinks alter the color of your teeth over time. Periodic teeth whitening at Smile Structure Dentistry and Braces offers exceptional results and the self-confidence you deserve.

What are the benefits of teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a noninvasive, painless treatment that can make your teeth up to eight shades whiter after just one 45-minute Zoom! whitening session. 

You may also choose Zoom! at-home whitening technology to conveniently brighten your teeth at home whenever you have the chance. Whitening dramatically improves the appearance of your teeth and enhances a gorgeous smile.

What can cause teeth staining?

Tooth staining can develop because of the following:

  • Tea
  • Coffee
  • Cola 
  • Dark juices
  • Popsicles
  • Tomato sauce
  • Soy sauce
  • Smoking or other tobacco products
  • Older age
  • Some medications
  • Poor oral hygiene habits 

The stains often appear slowly over time. Whitening toothpaste can help, but you may need a stronger treatment to achieve the brighter shade of white you long for. 

What happens during Zoom! teeth whitening?

In-office Zoom! teeth whitening consists of wearing teeth trays with whitening gel in them. Your dentist uses an LED light to speed up the whitening process, making your teeth multiple shades whiter after 45-90 minutes. 

If you’d rather whiten your teeth from the comfort of home, Zoom! take-home whitening trays are for you. You can achieve noticeably whiter teeth after just a few days of home whitening treatments.

What should I expect afterward?

There’s no downtime needed after teeth whitening, so you can return to work or resume other daily activities immediately. If staining appears over time, simply schedule another in-office or home-based Zoom! whitening session to brighten your smile.

Ways to keep your teeth as white as possible include using whitening toothpaste, brushing your teeth after meals, flossing daily, minimizing sugary foods, and seeing the Smile Structure Dentistry and Braces team for professional teeth cleanings at least every six months.
