Teeth Whitening Q & A

by Monica Muñoz, DDS

How does teeth whitening work?

Teeth whitening encompasses a selection of treatments designed to deliver a radically brighter, more youthful smile and appearance. Although there are a variety of teeth whitening treatments available over-the-counter, the most effective and longest-lasting treatments are provided in your dentist’s office.

The office of Dr. Monica Muñoz, DDS uses the Zoom! whitening method to help patients achieve a more attractive smile. Teeth whitening is the #1 most requested cosmetic dentistry procedure in America, and for good reason. In a short time-frame, patients who get teeth whitening can correct damage caused by aging, medications, tobacco, and beverages like cola and tea.

When should I get teeth whitening done?

With such a wide variety of teeth whitening methods available today, achieving a brighter smile can happen anytime. However, most patients choose professional teeth whitening procedures like Zoom! for special occasions like weddings, class reunions, or family photographs. Many other patients include teeth whitening as a regular treatment in the cosmetic dental care, getting their teeth whitened each year, or as needed.

What can I expect during teeth whitening?

Unlike whitening strips or trays that can be inconvenient and time-consuming, teeth whitening with Zoom! is a breeze. This technique requires that the technician prepare you for the procedure by isolating your lips and gums. Then, the special Zoom! whitening gel is applied to the teeth. A distinctive light is used to activate the gel. Afterward, patients will receive a fluoride treatment to complete the process.

Zoom! offers astounding results within the first several days. In most cases, patients notice whitening effects that are six to ten times greater than before the procedure. In addition, Monica Muñoz, DDS offers whitening trays to take home that help extend the amazing effects of the in-office Zoom! whitening technique. Trays are specially fitted and used for a couple hours each day or overnight for about 3 to 4 weeks. This additional option is recommended for patients with significant staining.
