Teeth Whitening Q & A

What makes my teeth yellow?

A variety of factors lead to your teeth turning yellow. Age, certain medications, and the foods you eat and drink may all be contributors. Surface stains on the enamel of your teeth from drinks like coffee, tea, and red wine, can make your teeth look yellow. Smoking and tobacco are also big culprits.

Over time, these surface stains go beneath the enamel to the dentin of your tooth, making the stain even harder to remove.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Certainly. When you follow product specifications and instructions, whitening your teeth is a harmless process. For reliable, safe results, the team at Dental Design of Wheaton provides Zoom whitening treatments. You may prefer to get your teeth whitened in only one appointment if you have a busy schedule, or steadily over time with a take-home teeth whitening kit.

No matter which course of treatment you choose, the Zoom whitening solution is entirely safe to place on your teeth and in your mouth. The only discomfort you may experience is temporary tooth and gum sensitivity from the whitening agents.

What can you expect from the Zoom in-office procedure?

The Zoom in-office teeth-whitening process is simple and can potentially make your teeth up to eight shades brighter in just one visit.* During your appointment, a highly-skilled member of Dr. Chopra's team will comfortably cover your gums and lips to protect them from the whitening gel. They then directly coat the teeth with the whitening agents and position a specialized bright light over the teeth.

In a single visit, you sit back and relax for three 15-minute blocks while the light and whitening gel interact to brighten your smile.

Between these 15-minute treatments, you wait comfortably, and following the final bleaching treatment, your dental expert applies a gel to your teeth to minimizes any sensitivity you may feel. That’s it. Your teeth are whiter in less than two hours, and your smile shows it.

If you'd rather whiten your teeth gradually over the course of a few weeks or do touch up treatments on your own in the convenience of your own home, ask Dr. Chopra for an at-home teeth-whitening kit.
