Teeth Whitening Q&A

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a highly popular service because it can noticeably enhance a smile in as little as one office visit. Dr. Agarwal uses powerful but safe formulas to remove stains and brighten your teeth to reveal their natural luster. 

Having a brighter and whiter smile can boost your self-confidence in a significant way. Dr. Agarwal offers several high-tech options that you can fit into any routine. She assesses your teeth and asks about your preferences before recommending a specific whitening procedure. 

Why might I need teeth whitening?

Tooth staining and discoloration are a natural occurrence with age and can worsen because of some of the foods you consume or habits you may possess. Avoiding stains and discoloration altogether is unrealistic because of their diverse set of causes. 

Teeth whitening procedures with Swati Agarwal, DDS, can lighten stains and discoloration caused by:

  • Natural aging
  • Poor dental hygiene habits
  • Certain foods and drinks, including wine, tea, coffee, and berries
  • Smoking and tobacco use
  • Illness
  • Certain medications
  • Fluorosis

Regular brushing, flossing, and even professional cleanings can only go so far in removing stains that are deep within the enamel. Professional whitening treatments go much deeper and can lift stains that aren’t just on the surface. 

What are my options for teeth whitening?

For your convenience, Dr. Agarwal offers several trusted teeth whitening brands and procedure options in her office. She can help you consider the benefits of each and decide which one is best for you:

Sinsational Smile® 

Sinsational Smile is a 20-minute in-office treatment that can lighten your teeth up to two shades in a sitting. Over 98% of individuals experience no additional tooth sensitivity after Sinsational Smile, making it a top-choice option for both comfort and convenience. 

Philips Zoom

Dr. Agarwal offers both Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed in-office whitening and take home kits. The in-office whitening takes around 45 minutes and lightens your teeth by up to eight shades. It uses a strong bleaching gel and an LED light to activate and accelerate the process. It causes little to no sensitivity for most individuals. Dr. Agarwal also offers custom take-home whitening trays with different options for bleaching components and wearing duration. 

Opalescence Boost Teeth Whitening

Dr. Agarwal uses Opalescence Boost to whiten stained teeth. This chemically activated whitening gel uses a specially formulated hydrogen peroxide gel that doesn’t require heat or uncomfortable lighting to work.
