Teeth Whitening Q & A

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening at Complete Health Dental Care uses the Zoom whitening system to make your teeth up to eight shades whiter in just one 45-minute chairside whitening session. Even if you brush your teeth regularly, teeth staining can still occur. Routine teeth whitening can give you the brighter teeth you desire and the confidence you deserve.

What causes teeth staining?

Teeth staining can happen for numerous reasons, including:

  • Poor oral hygiene habits
  • Taking certain medications
  • Older age
  • Smoking
  • Soda, coffee, tea, and red wine
  • Dark juices
  • Popsicles
  • Spaghetti sauce 
  • Soy sauce
  • Berries
  • Beets

Even if you have good brushing and flossing habits, staining can still occur. Routine teeth whitening with the experts at Complete Health Dental Care can keep your teeth white and reduce the risk of future staining.

Is teeth whitening right for me?

To determine if you’re a good candidate for teeth whitening, Dr. Piontkowski and his team review your oral health history and examine your teeth. If you have a cavity or gum disease, they can treat these problems prior to teeth whitening. They discuss the types of whitening procedures available to find one that’s right for you and often complete teeth whitening the same day.

What should I expect during teeth whitening?

When you arrive at Complete Health Dental Care for your appointment, you sit in a comfortable dental chair. If you choose Zoom chairside whitening, Dr. Piontkowski fills special trays with whitening gel and places them on your teeth while you relax. 

Combining blue LED light-accelerated technology with whitening gel rapidly whitens your teeth, improves luster, minimizes tooth sensitivity, and helps protect tooth enamel. There’s no downtime after teeth whitening, so you can resume a normal daily routine right away.

If you opt for take-home whitening trays, Dr. Piontkowski and his team offer custom-fit trays and whitening gel you can use from the comfort of your home. While at-home products might take longer to whiten teeth than Zoom chairside whitening, you can still achieve the same whitening results with take-home trays.

How can I keep my teeth white?

You can keep your teeth white by periodically whitening them with the help of Complete Health Dental Care staff. Brush your teeth twice daily using fluoride toothpaste, floss daily, don’t smoke, minimize foods and drinks that stain your teeth, and attend routine dental cleanings at Complete Health Dental Care. 

Don’t live with stained teeth that make you feel self-conscious. Schedule a dental appointment and teeth whitening at Complete Health Dental Care by phone or online today.
