Teeth Whitening Q & A

DC Dental Spa

What causes tooth discoloration?

A variety of factors can cause your teeth to yellow, including:

  • Certain medications
  • Being older
  • Stains from red wine, tea, or coffee
  • Tobacco use

Over time, surface stains can get even more challenging to get rid of because they penetrate deep into the enamel of your tooth all the way to the dentin.

Is teeth whitening safe?

When you follow product specifications and instructions, teeth whitening is a safe process. Dr. Marcus, Dr. Rex, and their team at DC Dental Spa offer Zoom whitening treatments for safe, reliable results. You can get your teeth whitened in just one office visit or more gradually with a take-home 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 bleaching agents.

What should I expect during a Zoom in-office procedure?

A Zoom in-office teeth whitening procedure can make your teeth up to eight shades brighter after just one appointment.* At your appointment, a member of the DC Dental Spa team fits upper and lower dental trays into your mouth. These trays hold the hydrogen peroxide whitening solution.

Next, your provider covers your gums and lips to protect them from the solution. They then fill the trays with the whitening gel and a unique LED lamp is positioned over your teeth. You sit back and relax as the bleach and light work together to whiten your teeth as you get three 15-minute treatments in a single visit.

The team at DC Dental Spa ensures you're comfortable and relaxed between treatments, and after you’re done with the last of the trays, your provider places a post-treatment gel on your teeth to reduce any sensitivity you might feel. After about an hour, the teeth whitening procedure is complete. You should notice the results immediately.

For a more gradual approach to teeth whitening, the DC Dental Spa team also offers at-home teeth whitening gel kits, which include take-home trays.
