Teeth Whitening Q&A

Discolored teeth can diminish the look of your smile and make you feel self-conscious. At Inspira Advanced Dentistry, with two offices in San Jose and another in Saratoga, California, the expert dental team offers Philips® Zoom! teeth whitening to give you the whiter, brighter smile of your dreams. Call the office nearest you to schedule an appointment or book one online today.

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening at Inspira Advanced Dentistry uses Zoom! whitening technology to make your teeth many shades whiter after just one whitening session. Zoom! whitening gel breaks apart tooth stains to give you the whiter smile you long for. Whiter teeth can boost your confidence, improving your quality of life.

What causes stained teeth?

Teeth staining is widespread. Many foods, drinks, and lifestyle habits contribute to tooth discoloration. Examples include:

  • Cola
  • Red wine
  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Tomato sauce
  • Soy sauce
  • Dark-colored juices
  • Popsicles
  • Berries
  • Sports drinks
  • Smoking
  • Some medications
  • Poor oral hygiene habits

Even if you limit your consumption of foods and drinks that stain, don’t smoke, and brush your teeth regularly, teeth staining can still occur. That’s why periodic teeth whitening at Inspira Advanced Dentistry comes in handy.

What kinds of teeth whitening are there?

The two main kinds of teeth whitening available at Inspira Advanced Dentistry are:

In-office Zoom! whitening

In-office Zoom! whitening makes your teeth many shades whiter after just a single visit to your dental provider. Your dentist uses whitening gel, custom teeth whitening trays, and a special light to speed up the whitening process. There’s no downtime afterward so that you can resume your day.

Professional-strength home whitening

With professional-strength home whitening, you take custom teeth whitening trays and gel home with you to whiten your teeth when it’s most convenient. However, you might need to complete several home whitening treatments to obtain the same results as in-office teeth whitening.

What are the best ways to keep my teeth white?

After you complete the teeth whitening process with the help of Inspira Advanced Dentistry experts, keep your teeth as white as possible by practicing good oral hygiene habits at home.

Brush your teeth using fluoride toothpaste after meals, floss daily, and use whitening mouthwash if your dentist recommends it. See the Inspira Advanced Dentistry team every six months for professional cleanings and teeth whitening when necessary.

If your teeth are discolored and you desire a whiter smile, call the Inspira Advanced Dentistry office nearest you or book an appointment online today.
