Teeth Whitening Q & A

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a noninvasive cosmetic dental procedure that uses whitening products to brighten the color of your teeth. While you can buy over-the-counter teeth whitening products, in-office whitening products are stronger and take less time to whiten teeth. Dr. Patel may recommend both in-office and at-home whitening treatments for your teeth.

What are the different teeth whitening products?

Dr. Patel whitens your teeth using the following in-office teeth whitening products:


Zoom! whitening enhances the appearance of stained teeth and your smile in just a single appointment. A Zoom! session takes about 30-45 minutes depending on which treatment you choose, and your teeth can appear up to eight shades whiter.

During a Zoom! whitening session, your dental specialist will:

  • Apply a thin layer of whitening varnish followed by a protective sealant to your teeth during shorter sessions, or apply advanced whitening gel to your teeth during longer sessions
  • Use a blue LED lamp to speed up whitening in some cases
  • Apply a post-treatment gel during advanced treatments to protect enamel and reduce tooth sensitivity

Dr. Patel might also send you home with an at-home whitening kit depending on which Zoom! system you choose, so you can brighten your smile as needed.

Sinsational Smile

Dr. Patel also uses a teeth whitening product called Sinsational Smile, a system that holds an eco-friendly certification. This product delivers whiter teeth in just 20 minutes, with only 1 minute of prep time, and the majority of patients experience no tooth sensitivity afterward.

During a Sinsational Smile whitening session, your dental specialist will:

  • Fit pre-filled silicone trays onto your teeth
  • Use an LED light to activate whitening gel
  • Give you an at-home whitening kit to touch up your smile as needed

The Sinsational Smile whitening system is an affordable product for many patients, and it is an easy, quick option when you’re tight on time.

Which teeth whitening product is right for me?

Dr. Patel will help you determine which teeth whitening product best matches your needs. The right choice for you will depend on your budget, the type of cosmetic whitening procedure you prefer, your desired results, and the length of time you have available.
