Teeth Whitening FAQs

Is teeth whitening safe?

Yes, many studies have proven that teeth whitening is safe under the administration of a dental professional. The process does not cause permanent damage to the enamel or any other tooth structure.  Teeth whitening is not recommended for pregnant or lactating women, as well as children under 13.


What’s the difference between professional dental teeth whitening and whitening strips?

Through professional dental teeth whitening, you’ll be able to see significant results within an hour. Comparatively, it can take weeks too see good results with whitening strips, if any at all. Whitening strips only work on natural tooth enamel, not dental restorations like crowns and bridges. Professional teeth whitening takes the guesswork out; you get a teeth whitening treatment that is personalized to your medical history, the type and extent of your stains, and any dental restorations you have.


What’s the difference between professional dental teeth whitening and whitening toothpaste?

Whitening toothpastes contain abrasives that can wear down your tooth enamel over time. Alternatively, professional teeth whitening lightens the shade of your teeth through a bleaching agent that is customized to your oral needs. This treatment is accompanied by safety measures to protect your gums and oral cavities in the process.


Are there any possible side effects?

The most common side effect to teeth whitening is teeth and gum sensitivity. This is caused by the enamel pores opening during the process, but the sensitivity will lessen as minerals in your saliva help the healing process. To minimize any temporary discomfort, we will perform a sensitivity treatment prior to your in-office treatment. This will ensure that you are a good candidate and using the right concentration of whitening formula.


How long will my teeth whitening results last?

You can expect your whitening results to last around a year, though the exact length is dependent on both genetics and habits. Consuming staining foods and beverages, such as coffee and tea, and smoking can limit the longevity of treatment results. However, you can easily keep your smile bright between treatments with the Zoom Whitening Pen.


Does teeth whitening damage existing dental restorations?

No. Dental restorations, like crowns, bridges and veneers, do not bleach. Therefore, any previous dental work may need to be replaced following a teeth whitening process if you want to match the new shade of your teeth.
