Common Questions About Whitening
Are In-Office Teeth Whitening Products Safe?
This is a question we get asked quite frequently, and the answer is YES. Teeth whitening is a part of cosmetic dentistry, and the materials that are used to whiten teeth in our office are regulated for safety. Your teeth will not be exposed to any chemicals that would cause the enamel to break down. Plus, we emphasize comfort during your procedure.
Can I Still Whiten My Teeth at Home?
If you want to whiten your teeth at home to keep them from re-staining, Dr. Irwan Goh can suggest products that are affordable, comfortable and effective.
What If Some of My Stains Will Not Go Away?
Tooth whitening does not work on all types of tooth stains. For instance, gray teeth caused by antibiotic treatment will not respond to topical whiteners. The same is true for teeth that are discolored because of metal fillings. However, there are other cosmetic dentistry options to address those concerns, such as porcelain veneers or crowns.
Zoom! Teeth Whitening
The actual whitening procedure usually lasts about 90 minutes. However, a regular teeth cleaning may be required by your dentist prior to treatment.
Before the procedure begins, the lips and gums are covered to protect them from exposure. The teeth are then coated with the hydrogen peroxide whitening gel, which combined with the Zoom! light penetrates the teeth to break up stains and discoloration.
The gel is left on the teeth for 15 minutes while the light is activated. The gel is reapplied for three 15-minute sessions. In all, the teeth are treated for 45 minutes.
After the procedure, a sensitivity-reducing fluoride paste-gel is applied to the teeth to reduce sensitivity to hot or cold.
Maintaining Whitening Effects
Your doctor will give you a Zoom! home-use touch-up kit that will include custom-fitted whitening trays. Schedule an appointment and follow your doctor’s instructions for when and how to use this kit.
