What Types Of Stains Can Teeth Whitening Address?

The teeth whitening treatments offered at the DENTAL STUDIO SF can dramatically improve the appearance of stains and discolorations that have developed over the years, due to:

ZOOM! 2 Professional Whitening System

Zoom! 2 is a fast, safe and proven teeth whitening system that has helped millions of people enjoy whiter, brighter smiles. Treatment is simple, painless and under the supervision of our dentists.
A protective guard will be placed to protect your gums from the whitening gel. Once the gel has been applied to your teeth, a special laser will be used to activate the gel’s effect. Results are immediate. You won’t have to wait weeks to see the effects of your treatment.

Advantages of Zoom! 2 laser whitening include:

Our dentists regularly evaluate a variety of teeth whitening systems and technology. They have specifically chosen Zoom! 2 for use at the DENTAL STUDIO SF based on its consistently high quality of results. Following your treatment, you will be given customized bleaching trays to use at home to maintain long-lasting results.

Ultradent’s Opalescence Boost

Opalescence take-home teeth whitening kits offer superior results compared to drugstore teeth whitening or bleaching kits. Unlike over-the-counter alternatives, Opalescence trays are specially customized to fit the contours of your teeth, eliminating the risk of inconsistent whitening. Choosing Opalescence over store-brands also reduces the risk of oral tissue irritation and excessive tooth sensitivity.

By applying the Opalescence Teeth Whitening at Home, you can:

How Long Does Tooth Whitening Last?

The results of your teeth whitening treatments can last two or more years if you maintain a diligent oral hygiene regimen which includes the whitening take-home trays provided by the DENTAL STUDIO SF.

Preventing Future Teeth Stains

Now that your teeth are newly whitened, what can you do to delay future yellowing? Here are a few ideas:

Even with the best of efforts, you may develop smile dinginess. Fortunately, touch-up teeth whitening will restore your results.

Foods And Beverages That Discolor Teeth

Certain dining options have greater staining potential than others:

Food

Drinks

Some of these foods are healthy and fun to enjoy, so you may not want to eliminate them completely. With the stain prevention tips listed above, you should be in good shape to mitigate the discoloring effect of your cuisine.

What About Veneers For A Whiter Smile?

Porcelain veneers also have the effect of whitening your teeth. You choose the shade of veneers you want, and the thin porcelain pieces are placed over the front surface of your teeth. Any discoloration or dinginess below the veneers is concealed, as well as any chips, cracks, worn edges or other flaws.

Veneers may last up to a decade or longer before they need to be replaced. The porcelain material is highly resistant to stains. But general wear and tear over the years may call for replacing old veneers.

When To Get Teeth Whitening

This treatment can be performed in the days or weeks prior to special events, including weddings, retirement parties, holiday parties, graduations, etc. The great thing about the in-office ZOOM! procedure is that the results are ready to go after a single appointment, so you can schedule the appointment shortly before your event. The Opalescence Boost take-home treatments require at least a couple weeks to work.

If you are planning to get a tooth restoration – such as veneers, a tooth crown or dental implant – you should whiten your teeth beforehand. The restorations will not respond to the whitening agents. But they can be matched to the color of your newly whitened teeth.
