Teeth Whitening Q & A

Why are my teeth not white?

Your teeth can turn discolored for a number of reasons, including:

  • Bad oral hygiene and at-home care
  • Consuming too many foods or beverages with dark pigments
  • Using tobacco products
  • Certain medications
  • Early exposure to certain antibiotics

Discolored teeth can also happen naturally with age. As you get older, the enamel on your teeth gets thinner, exposing the soft inner dentin, which naturally turns yellow over time.

Can’t I just whiten my teeth with a store-bought product?

You should never whiten your teeth with a store-bought product. Over-the-counter whitening strips and trays are less effective than a professional treatment, and they can sometimes even be harmful to your oral health. 

The bleaching solution used in the products from your local drug store isn’t nearly as strong as what you can get with a professional treatment at San Ramon Family Dental. Moreover, because the strips and trays aren’t designed for your unique smile, the bleaching solution frequently leaks out and irritates your gums.

If you want to safely and effectively restore your smile’s shine, opt for professional whitening with the dental team at San Ramon Family Dental.

How do you whiten my teeth?

San Ramon Family Dental provides you with high-quality whitening treatments using the Philips Zoom!® in-office whitening system. 

When you come in for your whitening procedure, your dentist first protects your gums with a special covering, then applies a special whitening gel to your teeth. The whitening gel contains hydrogen peroxide, which works to whiten your teeth by breaking up the molecular bonds that compose the stains in and on your teeth. Your dentist then shines a special LED light onto your teeth to enhance the process by making the whitening solution work more quickly and effectively. 

Whitening treatments with the Philips Zoom! system are clinically proven to get your teeth up to eight shades whiter in just one 45-minute treatment. The Philips Zoom! system is also the only whitening treatment to use ACP (amorphous calcium phosphate), which reduces sensitivity and improves the luster of your teeth, giving you a smile that’s not only better-looking but healthier, too.
