Teeth Whitening Q & A
What teeth whitening treatments are available?
Teeth whitening has become a popular procedure to brighten and whiten your smile. A vast range of options is available based on personal preferences, including whether you want in-office or at-home treatments. The premise behind each option is the same — remove food, drink, and other stubborn stains through a bleaching or whitening process.
Options fall into three main categories:
- Over-the-counter whitening products such as whitening strips, toothpaste, and gels
- Custom-fitted whitening trays that you can use at home or in the dental office
- In-office or chairside teeth whitening treatments like the Zoom! laser whitening
You choose the option that works best for your schedule and lifestyle.
How do laser and other in-office teeth whitening procedures differ?
The team at Comfort Care Dental performs in-office whitening procedures for safer and more dependable outcomes. Since the bleaching agents are stronger, in-office treatments tend to be faster and get better results than with over-the-counter products and at-home whitening kits.
With a laser treatment like Zoom! whitening, the results are more dramatic over a shorter period of time. For this reason, laser whitening has become the go-to for patients looking for a quick, whiter smile in under an hour.
In addition, Comfort Care Dental uses the uPhoria® whitening system, which harnesses the power of small vibrations to whiten your teeth by up to four shades in only 10 minutes.
How does Zoom! teeth whitening work?
Zoom! is a popular brand of laser teeth whitening. A typical Zoom! whitening session lasts about an hour and may start off with a regular teeth cleaning.
Your provider at Comfort Care Dental begins the treatment by placing a protective guard that shields your gum and lips. Next, they apply a coat of a hydrogen peroxide-based whitening gel to your teeth. The gel is formulated to work in conjunction with laser treatments to break down stains.
The treatment is usually divided into 15-minute intervals. When your treatment is complete, your teeth are coated with a fluoride gel to reduce sensitivity.
What is power bleaching?
The team at Comfort Care Dental also offers power bleaching treatment to their patients. In this effective solution, you receive an hour-long power bleaching treatment, in addition to custom-fitted take-home whitening trays to continue treatment on your own time. The result is a dramatic improvement to the appearance of your teeth.
