What is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental treatment that is used to make your teeth look whiter. Professional teeth whitening treatment provided by your dentist uses carbamide peroxide to remove stains and lighten the shade of your teeth. It can provide dramatic results in as little as one in-office treatment or a few weeks of daily at-home treatments.

Benefits of Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening offers many benefits: 

  • Effective. Professional teeth whitening is more effective than store bought whitening products, providing results you can see immediately. 
  • Safe on teeth. The active ingredient, carbamide peroxide, is safe on tooth enamel and minimizes sensitivity. 
  • Lasting results. The results of professional whitening treatments can last a long time, especially if you are careful to avoid teeth staining foods and beverages. 
  • Affordable. Professional teeth whitening is more affordable than ever. Even with the lower cost, financing is available to make it more affordable should you need it. 

Zoom Whitening

This in-office whitening treatment uses a laser to facilitate the whitening process and allows the dentist to customize aspects of the treatment to the patients needs.

  • Why should I whiten through my dentist?

    The most common concern is temporary teeth sensitivity, but lots of advances have been made in recent years to help combat this. Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed has adjustable intensity settings to help maximize patient comfort, and 99% of patients experience little to no sensitivity. Also, Philips Zoom DayWhite and NiteWhite have a special formula with built-in potassium nitrate and ACP (amorphous calcium phosphate), which are known desensitizers. These special ingredients make your enamel smoother and more lustrous as well. We highly recommend that you brush with a sensitivity formula toothpaste like Fluoridex™ Daily Defense Sensitivity Relief for two weeks prior to whitening, and that you take ibuprofen on the day of your treatment.

  • What are the possible side effects?

    The most common side effect is tooth and gum sensitivity. Your dentist is your best resource to ensure that you are a good candidate for whitening and that you are using the right concentration of whitening formula. Philips ZOOM!® at-home whitening products have two mild desensitizing agents, potassium nitrate and Amorphous Calcium Phosphate (ACP), to minimize tooth sensitivity.

  • What kind of results should I expect?

    While results vary from person to person, your smile will be noticeably whiter with Philips Zoom. With Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed, you can get up to eight shades whiter teeth in one 45-minute office visit. Philips Zoom DayWhite and NiteWhite offer a dramatically whiter smile in one to two weeks. And unlike over-the-counter options, your dentist will work hand in hand with you until you’re completely satisfied with your results.

Are You a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

Do you want a whiter smile? Are your teeth currently healthy? If so, you are a good candidate for teeth whitening. It is important that your teeth are in good condition before receiving a whitening treatment. If you have any cavities or other dental issues they will need to be treated before whitening is applied to protect the enamel. 

Whitening treatment can only improve the color of the teeth, so if your teeth are crooked, uneven, chipped, or have gaps, you may want to consider veneers or other cosmetic treatments to improve your smile.

Why Choose Lindenwold Dental Center?

We provide both in-office and at-home whitening treatments, allowing you to choose which option you prefer. For at-home whitening we create custom trays that fit your teeth so that treatment is comfortable and effective. For in-office whitening we take measures to protect your gums from irritation from the bleaching agent. Our whitening treatments are affordable and provide natural looking results.

Frequently Asked Questions About Teeth Whitening

How long do the results of professional teeth whitening last?

In-office whitening treatment can last anywhere from 1-3 years and at-home treatment can last anywhere from 9-12 months. Periodic touch-ups at home can help your results last longer in both cases, as well as avoiding foods and beverages that stain teeth.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Professional whitening treatments are safe on tooth enamel. Your dentist will only recommend it if your teeth are healthy to begin with. Carbamide peroxide, the active ingredient, is proven to be gentle on teeth while still effectively whitening them.

Does teeth whitening work on dental prosthetics?

Teeth whitening treatment will only work on natural enamel. It will not remove stains from fillings, crowns, bridges, or dentures.

Should teeth whitening be done before or after a dental cleaning?

Whitening treatment is most effective on clean teeth, so it is best to have a professional cleaning before the whitening treatment is applied to remove plaque and tartar.
