Teeth Whitening Q & A

What are my teeth whitening options?

Dr. Eizadi offers effective teeth whitening options to help you achieve a lighter tooth color that’s flattering to your complexion and smile.

The teeth whitening options available at the dentist and drugstore include:

  • Over-the-counter (OTC) gels
  • OTC whitening kinds of toothpaste
  • OTC and professional whitening strips and take-home kits
  • The revolutionary Zoom! laser and other professional in-office whitening treatments

At-home teeth whitening methods are effective for more extrinsic and superficial stains, but professional treatments provide whiter results and are typically necessary to resolve deep discoloration.

Prescription-strength strips and custom trays

Prescription-strength strips are more effective and stronger than OTC strip kits.

Zoom! laser

The Zoom! laser is a rewarding and efficient one-hour treatment that combines laser light and bleaching gel for impressive and lasting results that are up to eight shades whiter than your natural shade.

What causes teeth stains?

Certain substances and other outside factors can stain your teeth, including:

  • Tobacco use
  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Medications
  • Genetics
  • Trauma

Food and drinks can discolor your teeth too, so you might consider minimizing the consumption of red wine, soy sauce, and balsamic vinegar.

Some health conditions and congenital defects can also lead to teeth stains, such as tooth decay and enamel hypoplasia — thin, deficient, and discolored tooth enamel.

How does teeth whitening work?

Many teeth whitening methods use bleaching agents to break-up stains into smaller particles. The Zoom! laser light works in conjunction with the Zoom! hydrogen peroxide gel to break-up the stains better than a laser or peroxide gel alone.

What are the benefits of the Zoom laser?

The benefits of immediate results from the Zoom! laser make this whitening treatment a popular choice. The Zoom! treatment comes with custom take-home touch-up kits to enhance your long-lasting results.

Dr. Eizadi customizes your treatment to suit your goals and provides a range of white shades to choose from. The Zoom! laser treatment is well-tolerated, but mild tooth sensitivity is a common side effect that should subside within a few hours.

Are professional teeth whitening treatments better than OTC kits?

Professional dental teeth whitening reaches deeper stains and offers better results than OTC products.

The strength of professional teeth whitening treatments is superior to OTC kits because they’re administered by a trained a dental professional like Dr. Eizadi. Professional treatments, such as the cutting-edge Zoom! laser, combine the use of bleaching gels with precise laser technology for optimal whitening results.
