You have many choices to whitening teeth. Dr. Sowell provides Zoom Whitening in his Plano dental office because it offers the best results in the least amount of time. The best option for teeth whitening generally involves a higher investment but generates more comfortable, consistent, and long-lasting results.
Cheap teeth whitening solutions require more work and won’t give you the best results. However, teeth whitening at the dentist gives you the piece of mind that you have a professional by your side.
Dr. Sowell finds that ZOOM! WhiteSpeed In-office treatment offers the quickest, most profound, and longest-lasting results. Especially when combined with custom bleaching trays and desensitizing solutions.
You will get the trays once we achieve the initial results from ZOOM WhiteSpeed In-office for you. The custom trays will allow you to continue to brighten your teeth with touch-ups at home. Our premier professional whitening program keeps the results from fading years down the road.
The advantages of ZOOM whitening include:
- No messy whitening gel trays to wear and fumble with.
- The active ingredient is hydrogen peroxide.
- Complete in just one hour so you can get back to your daily routine.
- Dramatic results that last longer than a store-bought whitening product.
Alternative Teeth Whitening Options
We offer at-home teeth whitening with custom trays containing varying concentrations of whitening compounds. These may include the most economical tooth whitener trays. As with all our services, we will recommend the best solution that matches each patient’s goals and needs.
Sometimes teeth whitening is not enough to remove the stains from your teeth. For these patients, Dr. Sowell offers tooth bonding and porcelain veneers. Cosmetic tooth bonding is an affordable solution that can hide many imperfections on the teeth, including stains.
During the tooth bonding procedure, we will place a composite resin compound on the affected tooth and sculpt it into shape. Dr. Sowell will ensure that the color of the bonding compound matches your natural teeth so that it blends in beautifully. This is not a permanent solution but can last many years with proper oral hygiene.
The other more expensive and permanent option is porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are thin shells that permanently bond to the front of the tooth. They will hide any tooth imperfection, especially yellow, stained, or discolored teeth. They are highly stain-resistant, so there is no more worrying about stained teeth.
Your last resort is over-the-counter teeth whitening products. You can buy whitening pens, teeth whitening strips and other available options. However, these options may not be as strong as in-office teeth whitening treatments. The side effects can also be unpredictable.
Teeth Whitening FAQs
Can I whiten dental restorations like veneers or crowns?
No, traditional teeth whitening will not work on dental restorations. Most modern dental restorations consist of highly stain-resistant compounds. Using mouthwash every day and fluoride toothpaste can help deter stains from taking hold of your teeth and restorations.
Will teeth whitening leave me sensitive to hot and cold foods?
The teeth whitening procedure removes surface stains and can leave your teeth temporarily sensitive. This is normal and will go away after a couple of days. Treatment exposes fresh tooth enamel, and that’s why you experience sensitivity. All you have to do is avoid really hot or cold foods for a short period.
Is teeth whitening treatment permanent?
No. All whitening services, whether done at the dentist or not, are not permanent. You will need routine whitening treatments to keep your teeth perfectly white for a long time. Diligent brushing, flossing, using mouthwash, and visiting the dentist will ensure that your treatment will last longer. You will also not need as many follow-up treatments.
What foods should I avoid for the longest-lasting results?
Believe it or not, what you eat can affect the health and appearance of your new white smile. A healthy, well-balanced diet can keep your teeth strong, healthy, and brighter for longer. Beverages high in acidity or of strong color, like coffee and wine, can age and stain your teeth.
Foods high in calcium, like cheese and yogurt, can strengthen your tooth enamel. Broccoli can help scrub your teeth clean, and strawberries can help naturally whiten your teeth. Also, remember to brush your teeth often and floss regularly to help them stay white.
How long does professional whitening treatment last?
Results from professional teeth whitening typically last somewhere between 6 months to 2 years. This is a wide range because it depends on how well you take care of your teeth. Most patients receive whitening treatment periodically to keep the best results. Results from treatment are immediate, so your teeth will be significantly whiter leaving the office.
Is teeth whitening safe?
Yes, teeth whitening is generally safe especially when a dental professional administers it. However follow all the dentist’s instructions, especially when using at home whitening products. For example, do not exceed the amount of whitening gel you use, or the amount of time you keep the mouth piece in. This will minimize the side effects and the overall safety of your treatment.
