FAQ

Q – Does teeth whitening work?

Yes, teeth whitening will work on natural teeth that have experienced some surface and/or subsurface stains from eating, drinking or smoking things that leave stains on or in the tooth enamel.

Q. Is this the same type of treatment as Zoom?

We use the same type of technique as Zoom; however our concentration of whitening solution does not require a gum protector.

This is a key factor why our clients love our treatment, we pretty much eliminate the sensitivity and pain issues but still deliver the same if not better results for many of our customers.

Q- How long does it take?

In Office

Our In office treatment is one to three applications of 10-20 minutes each, so it’s less than an hour to a Bright Smile!

At Home

Our home whitening kits deliver professional results at home, but it just takes longer. You will need to use the kit once or twice a day, without skipping, for up to 10 days. You leave the gel on the teeth for at least 30 minutes with each application. The longer you go, the better the results! Be sure to finish any whitening treatment with an application of Minerals Enamel Booster to seal in results and strengthen tooth enamel.

Q – How long does teeth whitening RESULTS last?

Average results for peroxide-based whitening gels last 4 months to 1 year. Results will depend entirely upon your own tooth enamel and daily habits.
Our clients have experienced anywhere from 2-8 shades improvement Results will vary on each client. It’s important to understand that whitening is a progressive treatment, which means, the more treatments you do, the greater impact (results). Typically, we recommend pursuing another treatment in about four- six months. Habits, such as drinking red wine every night, smoking cigarettes, drinking coffee, etc. may rapidly diminish your Bright Smile.

Please Note: All teeth are different due to body chemistry, genetics, dental health, and mineral imbalances, etc. but as long as you have healthy teeth and gums you should see great results. Tetracycline stains cannot be removed. Stains resulting from excessive fluorides or if the teeth are porous, one can expect little result.

Q- Will it hurt?

Most people experience absolutely no sensitivity with our products. People with gum disease might experience irritation due to unhealthy gum tissues. Only use whitening products if your gums don’t bleed when you floss. Individuals with cracks in their tooth enamel, or very thin or porous enamel might experience tooth sensitivity from peroxide-based whitening gels. If this happens to you, discontinue use and see your dentist if desired. Our Minerals Enamel Booster does help with tooth sensitivity.

What causes discoloration?

Some teeth are naturally pigmented or stained as they develop. Typically, stains come from exposure to tea, coffee, smoking, juices, colas, wine, age, or just about anything that would stain a white tee shirt. Discoloration is caused by stains that penetrate the enamel and stain the dentin, which is the white part of the teeth.

Will this procedure whiten veneers, bridges, crown, and/or caps, etc.?

If crowns, veneers, bridges, and composites/caps, etc. have been in place for many years, the whitening process can return the rest of the teeth to the original shade prior to the crown/veneers/bridges/composites/caps, etc. placement.

In the event, you are planning to acquire crowns, veneers, bridges, and composites/caps, etc. the standard procedure is to first whiten all adjacent teeth, wait two weeks for the color to stabilize, then go to your dentist and have him match the crown/veneers/bridges/composites/caps, etc. to the new shade of your teeth.
