Teeth Whitening Q & A

What causes teeth discoloration?

Lots of different factors can cause teeth yellowing and discoloration. Certain medications, the food you eat or drink, and your age can all play a role. Stains on the enamel of your teeth from drinks like tea, coffee, and red wine, can make your teeth appear yellowish. Other major contributors include tobacco and smoking.

Over time, these surface stains go beneath the enamel to the dentin of your tooth, making the stain even harder to remove.

Is whitening your teeth safe?

Yes. When you follow product specifications and instructions, whitening your teeth is a harmless process. For reliable, safe results, the team at Dana Niguel Dental provides Zoom teeth whitening treatments. You can choose to have your teeth whitened in-office or gradually with a take-home whitening kit.

The Zoom whitening solution is not dangerous to put in your mouth and on your teeth in either instance. With dentist-supervised teeth whitening treatment with Dana Niguel Dental, your dentist makes sure to apply protective gels or a rubber shield as needed to protect your mouth from the bleaching agents.

What is the Zoom in-office procedure like?

A simple Zoom in-office teeth-whitening procedure could make your teeth up to eight shades brighter after just one appointment.* At your appointment, an experienced Dana Niguel Dental team member will fit upper and lower dental trays into your mouth. These trays will hold the hydrogen peroxide whitening gel. They shine a special bright light on your teeth to accelerate the whitening process. You sit back and relax as the bleach and light work together to whiten your teeth. 

You wait comfortably between treatments until your final bleaching treatment is complete, then your dental expert applies a gel to your teeth to minimize any post-treatment sensitivity you experience. In just a few 30-60 minute appointments, you have whiter teeth and a dazzling smile.

For a more gradual approach to whitening teeth over a couple of weeks, the team also offers at-home teeth-whitening kits. Products applied at the dentist’s office or with the trays sent home tend to be stronger with a higher peroxide amount than the ones you’ll find at the pharmacy. Other over-the-counter whitening trays may also fit poorly, compared to the customized at-home whitening trays made by Dana Niguel Dental, which are based on digital impressions of your teeth.
