Teeth Whitening Q&A

What is teeth whitening?

At LA Dentists Group, the team of practitioners uses cutting-edge Zoom! technology to whiten teeth with trays, whitening gel, and an LED light. At-home, professional-strength teeth whitening using Zoom! kits are also available.

What are the benefits of Zoom! teeth whitening?

The main benefits of completing teeth whitening at LA Dentists Group include whiter teeth, a brighter smile, and a boost in self-confidence. Zoom! whitening is painless, noninvasive, and dramatically enhances the appearance of your smile and quality of life. 

What causes teeth staining?

Lifestyle habits, foods, and drinks can all cause tooth staining. Examples include:

  • Smoking
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Some medications
  • Skipped dental cleanings
  • Red wine
  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Cola
  • Dark juices
  • Popsicles®
  • Tomato sauce
  • Soy sauce

Older age is also a risk factor for tooth staining and discoloration. While eating nutritious foods, not smoking, and adopting good brushing habits at home can reduce the chance of tooth staining, it often still occurs over time.

Is Zoom! teeth whitening right for me?

If you have stained teeth, you're a candidate for Zoom! teeth whitening at LA Dentists Group. Your dentist reviews your oral health history, examines your gums and teeth, and reviews the results of your most recent dental X-rays. 

They also discuss your lifestyle habits, preferences, and goals before personalizing your treatment plan.

What should I expect during teeth whitening?

During Zoom! teeth whitening, you have the option of in-office whitening or an at-home whitening kit. 

In-office sessions may take about 45 minutes. Your provider applies whitening gel to your teeth then uses an LED light to activate and speed up the whitening, making your teeth many shades whiter at the end of each session.

You can whiten your teeth at home too, but it may take multiple treatments to match the results of in-office whitening treatments. 

Keep your teeth as white as possible between whitening sessions by brushing your teeth after meals with whitening toothpaste or mouthwash if your dentist recommends it, flossing daily, and going to professional teeth cleaning appointments at least once every six months.
