Tooth Whitening Questions & Answers

Teeth Whitening Los Angeles Is tooth whitening safe?

Your dental health and safety is always cosmetic dentist Dr. Kevin Sands’ primary concern. That’s why Dr. Sands choose the innovative formula patented by Zoom!, using Advanced Power Lamp technology and a safe, effective gel to maximize the brightening process for fast, gentle, long lasting results.

How long is the procedure?

Generally, the in-office tooth whitening process takes less than an hour. The Zoom! whitening process itself takes only about twenty minutes, but there is some prep time involved and some after-care Dr. Sands’ staff must follow to ensure your optimum results, bringing the overall treatment to about one hour.

What are the side effects of tooth whitening?

Some teeth whitening patients may initially experience sensitivity to temperature changes in some foods and drinks, particularly those that are cold.  However, the minor discomfort will not last more than a day or two. For individuals with a natural tendency towards tooth sensitivity, we recommend a toothpaste such as Sensodyne, developed for us by patients with this issue.

What are my tooth whitening options?

Many consumers try over-the-counter strips, brush-on pastes, bleaching trays, etc. only to be sorely disappointed.  Over-the-counter bleaching trays are one size fits all, but they may not fit you effectively enough to whiten all your teeth evenly. Over-the-counter treatments may also take weeks before you can see any noticeable change in tooth whiteness.

At the Los Angeles office of Dr. Sands, however, the results of Zoom! whitening are nothing less than amazing. In just one visit, you are on your way to a stunning smile in two simple steps:

  1. Dr Sands applies a non-laser blue light to a special gel to maximize the whitening process.
  2. An in-home treatment kit is provided for patients who want an even more brilliant smile.

What can I expect at my Zoom! appointment?

After completing your free consultation to determine your overall dental health, Dr. Sands will schedule the teeth whitening procedure.

  1. Dr. Sands applies the Zoom! gel formula to the discolored teeth
  2. Dr. Sands uses a safe, non-laser light to activate the gel and restore a brilliant smile

The entire treatment takes less than an hour, and Dr. Sands can provide an in-home treatment kit to maintain your beautiful new smile. 

Should I whiten my teeth?

Today, tooth whitening is a very popular dental procedure for individuals unhappy with discolorations and tooth stains. In fact, it is one of the most affordable and most noticeable cosmetic dental procedures you can choose. The results are immediate and the cost is easy on the average budget.
