Types Of Teeth Whitening Treatments

At Volterra Dental, we know the value of having options. That’s why we offer two kinds of professional-strength teeth whitening: Zoom! and Opalescence. Both use a gel containing a professional-strength whitening agent and can be done:

  • In-office for fast, dramatic results
  • At-home for your convenience

Who Can Get Teeth Whitening Treatments?

Both Zoom! and Opalescence are great at lifting stains off your teeth, but they will not whiten dental work such as dental crowns, tooth fillings, or veneers. If you plan to get any of these cosmetic dentistry or restorative dentistry procedures done, we may recommend teeth whitening beforehand so your restorations can be matched to your newly whitened smile.

Also, patients with gum disease or other dental problems may require treatment before whitening their teeth.

Teeth Whitening At The Dentist

The main problem with over-the-counter teeth whitening treatments is that the whitening agent is significantly weaker and therefore less effective. Even with regular use, you may not experience the results you desire. Additionally, store-bought systems usually affect the tooth surface only, whereas whitening at Volterra Dental penetrates enamel to lift more stains.

Why Do My Teeth Lose Their White Color?

Your teeth may look smooth, but your enamel is filled with tiny imperfections where food and drinks like coffee can become trapped. Over time, these stains add up and can make your white teeth look discolored. Plaque can also build up on your enamel, further staining your teeth.

Regular dental cleanings and exams help to prevent plaque buildup and keep your teeth shiny, but you may still require a teeth whitening treatment to attain your ideal shade.
