Teeth Whitening

Our teeth are small but one of your most noticeable features. When it comes to your smile, pearly white teeth are always preferable. Teeth whitening is a quick and easy procedure, which can be done in a dental clinic in about 1-2 hours. While you can find retail teeth whitening kits and a plethora of different technologies to whiten your teeth, working with us is the ideal approach. At Elite Dental, we know what is best for you. Having us perform your teeth whitening treatment not only ensures no irritations in your tooth and gum but also avoids side effects.

1. Why did my teeth change color?

Tooth discoloration is when the color of your teeth changes. They don’t look as bright or white as they should. Your teeth may darken, turn from white to different colors, or develop white or dark spots in places.

Some of the most common that factors contribute to tooth discoloration include:

  • Colored food and drinks: coffee, tea, wine, certain fruits, and vegetable can stain your teeth.
  • Tobacco use.
  • Poor dental hygiene: not brushing and rinsing enough to remove the plague.
  • Aging: as you age, the outer layer of the enamel gets worn away, exposing the yellow dentin underneath.
  • Certain diseases and use of medications: many diseases and medications such as antibiotics, antihistamines, and blood pressure medications can wear away your enamel and dentin, which lead to discoloration.
  • Trauma: if you’ve been hit in the mouth, your tooth may change color because it reacts to an injury by laying down more dentin, which makes your tooth appear darker.

2. Teeth whitening methods?

With dozens of teeth whitening methods available, it can be overwhelming to weigh all the options. However, in-office treatment is considered the best method to help you achieve a brighter smile.

In-office teeth whitening is a method that applies UV light therapy and peroxide-based whitening agents to make your teeth brighter. This method can provide immediate results as well as prevent irritations and any side effects. Typically, an in-office teeth whitening treatment can whiten your teeth 5-10 shades.

3. How does it works?

When you come in for a teeth whitening procedure at Elite Dental, typically, the process follows these below steps:

Step 1: Initial examination is performed to ensure you are suitable for whitening. Your dentist and you will decide which shades meet your ultimate goal.

Step 2: After the examination, a picture of your teeth is taken to establish a baseline of your dental conditions.

Step 3: Your dentist will clean up your oral cavity. By doing this, your dentist can make sure that your mouth is clean and sterile during the whole procedure.

Step 4: Lip balm is applied to prevent damage in irritations. 

Step 5: A lip retractor is put into your mouth. Then comes the saliva ejector. Next, cotton balls are placed between your teeth and the inner surface of your mouth.

Step 6: Your dentist will apply a gingival barrier to protect your gums from the whitening gel.

Step 7: A photopolymerization (the technique that uses UV light) shines to dry the gingival protective barrier.

Step 8: Whitening agent is applied to your teeth.

Step 9: After applying the whitening gel, your dentist will shine a blue LED light directly on your teeth. The blue beams and the whiteners will work together to break down the stain pigments on your teeth. After 10-15 minutes of light-time, your dentist will re-apply the gel and shine your teeth again. This process repeats 4 times to ensure the best results.

4. Zoom WhiteSpeed ​​at Elite Dental

At Elite Dental, to ensure our clients achieve beautiful smiles, we choose Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed ​​technology – the most recent innovative and sufficient technology from the US. Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed is the most popular treatment we provide because it causes little to no sensitivity. At the same time, it delivers instant and outstanding results. 

With Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed, the blue LED light-accelerated technology provides 50,000 hours of use. The Zoom lamp generates a beam of light, which maximizes the activation of the color-sensing molecules in the whitening gel to achieve the best result.

The Zoom whitening gel consists of active ingredients, including ACP (amorphous calcium phosphate), potassium nitrate, and fluoride to help restore the enamel and dentin of the teeth structure. These ingredients are tested and FDA approved.

For each patient who receives treatment at Elite Dental, we offer a personal Zoom whitening kit that includes: a lamp head, lip tractor, lip balm, cotton to ensure hygiene and cleanliness.

5. Aftercare for your teeth whitening treatment

After you have had your teeth whitened, our dentist will send you home with plenty of advice on maintaining your new smile. It is essential to avoid any foods and drinks that could cause your teeth to stain for 2 weeks. If you cannot stay away from coffee and or tea, drink with a straw and rinse your mouth with water after consuming them. The result of Philip Zoom WhiteSpeed can last 2-3 years. However, it is worth mentioning that many factors, such as diets, habits, and environment can affect the longevity of the result.

The Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed ​​is an effective and innovative technology. However, achieving the perfect smile also requires attention and dedication.
