Teeth Whitening Q & A

What is professional teeth whitening?

If you notice that your teeth don’t have the same luster as before, professional teeth whitening is an option.

Over time, your teeth can become yellow or stained for various reasons, including:

  • Worn down enamel that exposes your dentin
  • Fluorosis (too much fluoride during your developmental years)
  • Certain medications
  • Stains from foods and drinks

At Suburban Dental, the team has the expertise to brighten your teeth up to eight shades lighter with professional Zoom® bleaching solution. You can choose to have your teeth whitened at the practice or at home.

How does teeth whitening work?

If you choose the in-office option, you can have whiter teeth in less than an hour. When you arrive at the practice, the team first prepares your mouth by protecting your lips and gums. Only your teeth are exposed during the procedure.

Your provider applies the whitening solution and activates it with a specially-designed light. The combination of these two working together breaks up stains and discoloration.

If you choose the at-home option, you need to come in for two separate appointments. During your first visit, they make digital scans or impressions of your upper and lower teeth to create clear plastic trays that fit on top of your teeth. 

At your second appointment, they ensure a proper and comfortable fit and provide you with the whitening gel you put in your trays.

For optimum results, apply the solution twice a day for 30 minutes or sleep in them for a few weeks until you reach your desired outcome.

The team also provides specific instructions on how to maintain the whiteness of your teeth.

Professional teeth whitening, whether performed at the practice or at your home, provides more promising results than over-the-counter treatments you might find at a drugstore. The Suburban Dental team also makes sure your teeth whitening experience is safe and effective.

Does teeth whitening hurt?

The process of whitening your teeth is a painless procedure. However, you can experience tooth sensitivity after the process, which subsides shortly. Most people don’t experience any side effects of whitening at all.
