Teeth Whitening Q & A

When do I need teeth whitening?

Some of the reasons that your teeth may be darker than you’d like include:

  • Overuse of fluoride during childhood
  • Enamel wear, which exposes the darker dentin below
  • Medication use, including certain antibiotics
  • Smoking or chewing tobacco
  • Coffee, tea, or cola
  • Red wine

If you’re not happy with the brightness of your smile for any reason, professional teeth whitening with Dr. Kupelian could be right for you.

How does teeth whitening work?

Dr. Kupelian uses the dental industry’s leading teeth whitening system, Zoom. Zoom products contain amorphous calcium phosphate to protect your tooth enamel, fluoride to combat tooth decay, and potassium nitrate to decrease tooth sensitivity.

Zoom offers both in-office and at-home whitening.

In-office whitening

In Zoom in-office teeth whitening, the team applies a powerful whitening formula to your teeth and then uses light activation to bring on rapid stain lifting. Typically, an in-office treatment includes three 15-minute sessions of light-activated whitening.

You can whiten your teeth as many as eight shades in just one appointment with Zoom in-office teeth whitening.

At-home whitening

For Zoom at-home whitening, Dr. Kupelian creates customized mouth trays to fit your teeth perfectly. You’ll use a syringe to dispense the whitening gel evenly into the trays and then wear them for around 30-90 minutes a day.

For maximum whitening when you have stubborn stains or need dramatic results, Dr. Kupelian may prescribe a Zoom formula that you wear overnight instead. You’ll get noticeable results with either option in around two weeks.

Zoom formulas come in several different strengths, so the team can tailor your treatment according to your personal whitening target.

How long will my teeth stay white after treatment?

Zoom whitening is generally quite long-lasting, especially if you follow Dr. Kupelian’s advice about teeth maintenance. This typically includes using touchup products at home when needed, avoiding foods and drinks that cause stains, and having regular teeth cleanings.
