Teeth Whitening Q & A

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a professional cosmetic dental treatment that’s specially designed to remove teeth discoloration and stains and give you brighter, lighter, and whiter teeth. 

At Just For Your Smile, you can select from different teeth-whitening options, such as in-office laser whitening and take-home whitening kits. During your personal consultation at Just For Your Smile, your dentist can discuss your options.

Why are my teeth stained?

Several factors can cause your teeth to become stained over time, such as:

  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Certain drinks and foods, like coffee and red wine
  • Trauma
  • Tobacco
  • Medications
  • Genetics

Certain diseases, such as tooth decay, can erode the enamel of your teeth and discolor your teeth over time.

What are my teeth whitening options?

Teeth whitening typically involves special dental whitening agents or chemicals that effectively break the stains up into smaller particles, leaving whiter-looking teeth with less concentration of stained color.

Just For Your Smile offers the innovative Zoom laser system to get your teeth up to 10 shades whiter. You might also choose the combo package of one-hour in-office Zoom laser treatment followed by a two-week take-home kit.

Zoom in-office whitening

Your dentist can use the advanced Zoom laser technology and special whitening gel to professionally whiten your teeth in just one hour in the office.

You’re scheduled for treatment after your initial consultation. Your dentist places a protective barrier over your lips and gums before applying the whitening agent to your teeth. Your dentist uses the laser light to activate the whitening agent and accelerate your results.

Custom take-home trays

Your dentist typically takes an impression of your teeth and creates custom trays that hold the whitening agent against your teeth. Every day, you wear your custom trays with the whitening gel to whiten your teeth. Your dentist gives you specific instructions to help you correctly whiten your teeth at home. The take-home process usually takes about two weeks.

Your teeth-whitening results can last up to three years. You might choose to have a touch-up treatment in about a year.
