It’s a handy touch up method for those who don’t have a lot of time to bleach at home or who don’t like the taste of the tray bleaches. The cost is $70. 2) At-home tray bleaching. We have a tray bleaching gel that is quite unique. Some tray bleaches have to be worn at least an hour and sometimes all night to be effective.

  • Will bleaching hurt my teeth? No. When performed properly tooth bleaching does not hurt the teeth in any way. It is just like bleaching a white tee shirt. The bleach does not affect the cloth …only the stain. It is important to use bleaches that do not have an acidic ph level which can damage the outer layers of the tooth. There are acidic bleaches on the market, so be careful.
  • How long will the bleaching last? It is a permanent change and would last forever if you never ate or drank anything again. Your teeth will re-stain at whatever rate they stained before. This is dependent on the type and frequency of foods you eat. Coffee, tea, smoking, red wine, and blueberry pies are some of the types of things that will continue to stain teeth.
  • How do I get them white again? Once the initial stain has been removed retouching is easy because the deep pigments have been removed and only the superficial ones remain. These can be removed very rapidly at home with either home trays or the paint-on bleach. This is done however often you want or need to keep them clean looking. Generally 6 months to a year is sufficient.
  • Does bleaching hurt? Not at all if used as instructed. Some people can have a mild sensitivity if they use a tartar-control toothpaste. We recommend against tartar-control toothpastes for this very reason. Proper brushing is all you need to prevent.
Tetracycline Discoloration Teeth that are discolored from tetracycline or excessive flouride are not good candidates for bleaching. These chemicals cause a banded or layered type of staining. The best that can be expected is simply an overall lightening of the bands of color. Veneers are the best solution for these cases. Whitening techniques will work for tetracycline staining only if the discoloration is mild. Home bleaching treatments are not strong enough. ZOOM is recommended.
