Teeth Whitening Q & A

What causes teeth stains?

A number of outside factors and certain substances can stain your teeth, including:

  • Drinks and foods, including red wine
  • Tobacco use
  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Medications
  • Genetics
  • Trauma

Some diseases can lead to teeth stains like tooth decay and enamel hypoplasia — a condition involving thin and discolored tooth enamel.

What are my teeth whitening options?

There are various teeth whitening options available, including:

  • Over-the-counter gels
  • Whitening toothpaste
  • Take-home whitening strips and kits
  • In-office whitening treatments like the Zoom! laser

At-home teeth whitening methods can work well for more superficial stains, but deeply discolored stains typically require professional treatments for the best results.

Some professional teeth whitening treatments must be performed under dental supervision in-office. Dr. Yan provides effective teeth whitening options to assist you in achieving your desired shade to suit your smile and complexion. Prescription-strength strips are stronger and more effective than at-home DIY kits.

Zoom! laser

Zoom! whitening is an efficient one-hour treatment that uses both bleaching gel and laser light for lasting and impressive results. Zoom! can whiten your teeth by up to eight shades.

How does teeth whitening work?

Most teeth whitening methods involve bleaching chemicals to break the stains into smaller particles and disseminate them. With less concentration of stained color, your teeth look whiter. The Zoom! laser light works along with the Zoom! hydrogen peroxide gel to break up the stains.

What are the benefits of the Zoom! laser?

Dr. Yan offers the Zoom! laser due to the many benefits and immediate results. Dr. Yan customizes the Zoom! treatment to suit you with a range of white shades you can choose from.

Zoom! laser whitening offers long-lasting results and you’re given custom touch-up kits you can take home to improve your results.

The Zoom! laser treatment is well-tolerated and aside from some mild tooth sensitivity, there aren’t any side effects.

Do professional teeth whitening treatments work better than over-the-counter kits?

Professional teeth whitening treatments are stronger and therefore more effective than over-the-counter kits. Professional treatments utilize bleaching chemicals that are usually more highly concentrated and are specially designed to be used by a qualified dental professional. Professional teeth whitening can reach deeper stains.

The state-of-the-art Zoom! laser uses bleaching gels with advanced laser technology and must be used by a trained dental professional.
