Teeth Whitening Q & A

Does teeth whitening work for everyone?

Although it’s effective for most men and women, teeth whitening doesn’t always work for everyone. Even professional whiteners aren’t able to correct all types of stains and discoloration.

Whitening treatments are suitable for most natural teeth, but don’t work on crowns, veneers, or fillings. In some cases, if your teeth have gray or brown tones, whitening treatments may not bleach all of the stains away.

Teeth that are discolored as a result of injury or some types of medications don’t always respond well, either. If you’re not a candidate for teeth whitening options, Dr. Dennis advises you on which type of cosmetic dental procedure will give you the best results so you can still achieve a whiter, brighter smile.

What types of teeth whitening options are available?

Dr. Dennis offers Zoom! in-office bleaching treatment as a fast, safe way to whiten your teeth in just one visit. Zoom! uses the latest dental technology and proven chemical formulas to whiten tooth enamel up to eight shades with little to no tooth sensitivity, as is common with many over-the-counter teeth whitening systems.

When you come in for a Zoom! whitening treatment, Dr. Dennis or one of his experienced team members applies the gel to your teeth and then uses a specialized LED whitening lamp to activate and accelerate the gel. This provides you with the fastest, most effective teeth whitening experience and delivers whiter, brighter teeth in about an hour in the office.*

The take-home whitening system is another convenient way to brighten your teeth over several days using custom-fitted whitening trays. Several different options are available, depending on how quickly you want to see the desired results. Dr. Dennis explains your options in the office and you take home everything you need to get a whiter, more dazzling smile in the convenience of your home.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Professional teeth whitening is a safe process under the care of an experienced dentist. Overall, there is little risk of any serious side effects. Many adults experience mild tooth sensitivity during or after whitening treatments, but that returns to normal in a few days.
