Teeth Whitening Q&A

What is teeth whitening?

Zoom! teeth whitening available at STAR Family Dental uses whitening gel, teeth trays, and LED technology to break apart tooth stains to make stained teeth brighter and more beautiful. The treatment is fast, simple, and painless and offers superior teeth whitening results. You have the option of choosing from in-office teeth whitening and at-home whitening kits.

What are the common causes of teeth staining?

Despite adopting healthy oral hygiene habits, teeth staining can still occur because of:

  • Some medications
  • Smoking
  • Poor brushing or flossing habits
  • Aging
  • Red wine
  • Coffee
  • Tea 
  • Cola
  • Dark juices
  • Popsicles
  • Tomato sauce
  • Soy sauce
  • Other foods and drinks that stain

The good news is that even if your teeth become discolored over time, you can still achieve a beautifully white smile and gain confidence with the help of Zoom! whitening at STAR Family Dental. 

Is teeth whitening right for me?

To determine if you’re a candidate for teeth whitening treatment, your dental specialist reviews your oral health history, examines your gums and teeth, and takes dental X-rays if necessary. They also discuss your desired results, lifestyle, and preferences. 

Your STAR Family Dental provider can treat any tooth decay or gum disease you might have. They then tailor a teeth whitening treatment that’s ideal for you.

What should I expect during teeth whitening?

During teeth whitening at STAR Family Dental, you relax in a comfortable dental chair. Your specialist places whitening gel and trays over the top of your teeth. They often use a specialized LED light to speed up the whitening process. In as little as 45 minutes, you can expect teeth up to eight shades whiter. There’s no downtime afterward, so you can resume your routine.

How can I keep my teeth white?

To keep your teeth as white as possible between whitening sessions at STAR Family Dental, limit or avoid foods and drinks that stain. Brush your teeth after meals, floss daily, and use whitening mouthwash if your dentist recommends it. 

See the STAR Family Dental providers every six months for routine dental cleanings and whiten your teeth periodically in the office or using at-home whitening kits.
