Teeth Whitening Q & A

Why are my teeth discolored?

A variety of circumstances and substances could be the cause your tooth discoloration and staining, including: 

  • Foods and drinks like coffee and red wine
  • Medications
  • Genetics
  • Tobacco
  • Trauma
  • Tooth decay


Poor gentle hygiene can also contribute to teeth staining. 

Fortunately, you can combat teeth discoloration and staining with professional teeth whitening. Teeth whitening is a process by which the practice uses a whitening agent, often bleach-based, to change the color of your tooth enamel.

What are my teeth whitening options?

Gentle Touch Dental PC offers a few different teeth whitening options, including:

At-home whitening systems

In order to create your professional at-home whitening treatment, the practice takes an impression of your teeth and creates a set of custom trays for you to take home with you. To use the trays, you apply a whitening gel, and then fit the trays over your teeth. 

Usually, you notice results within three to five days and finish your treatment after 10 to 14 days.

In-office Whitening

Using Philips ZOOM! in-office whitening, you can lighten your teeth by up to eight shades in just 45 minutes. Zoom! To begin, your team applies a layer of advanced whitening gel to your teeth. Then, they point an LED lamp at your teeth, to accelerate the whitening process.

The team repeats this process three times during your visit, then finishes your treatment with a post-treatment gel that reduces tooth sensitivity and protects your enamel.

The practice often also provides you with take-home trays and whitening gel so that you can touch up your teeth whenever you feel like it.
