Teeth Whitening Q & A
by Maryam Haeri-Maybodi, DDS

What teeth whitening choices are available to patients?

Patients considering teeth whitening can trust Dr. Haeri Maybodi to offer the latest technology to whiten teeth effectively. The 2 most popular options available include:

  • Zoom Whitening: combining the power of hydrogen peroxide with the strength of UV light to quickly whiten the teeth
  • Take-home whitening trays: Using prescription strength whitening gel and trays that conform to the patient’s unique mouth shape

How does Zoom Whitening work?

Zoom teeth whitening involves placing a 25% hydrogen peroxide whitening gel on the teeth, then using an overhead UV light to break down the peroxide. This allows the peroxide to enter the tooth enamel and dentin to bleach the stains without damaging the tooth structure. Zoom whitening delivers similar results to take-home whitening trays, but the procedure is completed in the dental office in just 1-3 visits, rather than 2-4 weeks at home.

Are there any non-prescription at-home whitening methods that work?

The most effective whitening methods are those patients receive from their dentist, but some home-based options do help. To whiten teeth at home, consider limiting teeth-staining activities, like smoking and drinking dark beverages. Other steps to naturally whiten teeth include:

  • Brushing after eating
  • Rinsing with hydrogen peroxide and water
  • Brushing with a paste made from baking soda and hydrogen peroxide
  • Oil pulling
  • Brushing with apple cider vinegar

As with most natural remedies, patients will need to use these for at least a month before noticing improvement. These natural remedies won’t give the same level of whitening available through prescription whitening gels.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Dr. Haeri Maybodi is dedicated to her patient’s safety, and all tooth whitening procedures done at Ocean Breeze Dental Spa are safe and effective. Patients will need to follow the guidelines and instructions well in order to properly protect their teeth while whitening.

Do whitening toothpastes work?

Whitening toothpastes and teeth whitening strips are effective at removing surface stains, but they can’t remove stains that are deeper. These products work through chemicals and polishing actions to remove the surface stains from the teeth. Contact Dr. Haeri Maybodi for more information.
