Teeth Whitening Q & A

What is teeth whitening?

The team at Christine S. Liu, DMD, PC, uses the Zoom system as a noninvasive way to make your teeth shades white after a single visit. 

You also have the option of professional strength Zoom at-home whitening kits, or combinations of in-office and at-home treatments to achieve whiter, brighter teeth, giving you a smile you feel confident about.

Am I a good candidate for teeth whitening?

Just about everybody can benefit from Zoom teeth whitening at Christine S. Liu, DMD, PC. To find out if you’re a good candidate for the simple procedure, your dentist reviews your medical and dental history and examines your teeth.

 The team then recommends a teeth whitening treatment that best suits your needs and preferences.

What should I expect during teeth whitening?

The following Zoom whitening treatments help you achieve whiter, brighter teeth:

In-office teeth whitening

In-office teeth whitening takes about 45 minutes and results in teeth that are up to eight shades whiter with little to no sensitivity. Your dentist uses whitening trays with a special gel that delivers enamel protection during treatment. They place trays on your teeth while blue LED light accelerates the whitening process. 

At-home teeth whitening

If you choose at-home whitening to achieve noticeably whiter teeth in two weeks, your dentist offers you at-home kits to take with you. You can wear Zoom whitening trays 30 minutes daily for two weeks or overnight while you sleep, depending on which product you choose.

How can I keep my teeth white?

After in-office or at-home whitening, you might require periodic maintenance treatments to keep your teeth white as certain foods, drinks, and lifestyle habits can stain teeth over time. Examples include smoking, soda, coffee, tea, wine, tomato sauce, candy, sports drinks, and more.

Brush your teeth two times a day using whitening fluoride toothpaste and floss every day. Opt for a whitening mouthwash when recommended by your dentist. See your dental provider every six months for a professional cleaning and exam.
