What Is Tooth Whitening?
Tooth whitening, also referred to as tooth bleaching, is an effective, non-invasive dental treatment used to lighten the color of a tooth. It is an ideal way to improve your smile and confidence without damaging your teeth or removing enamel from the tooth’s surface.
The Benefits of Tooth Whitening
Even with routine oral hygiene, teeth can yellow, as over time our tooth enamel becomes thinner. When our tooth enamel thins, the underlying dentin, which is naturally yellow, will become visible. In addition to aging, our teeth can yellow due to certain foods and drinks, tobacco use, and more. The benefits of tooth whitening include:
- A Brighter Smile
- Enhanced Overall Appearance
- Enhanced Self-Esteem
- Improved Oral Health
- Precise Personalization
- Long-Lasting Results
- Increased Oral Health
- Improved Mental Health
Things to Know Before Whitening Your Teeth
Teeth whitening treatments are common, and there are a wide range of treatment options, including: LED light tooth whitening, tooth whitening for sensitive teeth, teeth whitening for braces, tooth whitening after braces, and more. Before undergoing professional tooth whitening services, it’s essential to ensure you are prepared. Some things to know before treatment include:
- Schedule a dental checkup

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
The type of tooth whitening offered at our dental office in Belmont, MA usually requires two visits. At the first appointment, impressions will be made of your teeth to fabricate custom, clear plastic trays. There is an entire pallet of options available to help you get a knockout smile here at Belmont Dental Group. Our hygienists are experts in helping you get the smile of your dreams! You will try on the trays for a proper fit at your second appointment, and adjustments will be made if necessary. The trays are worn with a special whitening solution either twice a day for 30 minutes or overnight for a couple of weeks, depending on the degree of staining and desired level of whitening. It is normal to experience tooth sensitivity when you are whitening your teeth. Still, it will subside shortly after you have stopped bleaching. You will receive care instructions for your teeth and trays and be encouraged to visit your dentist regularly to help maintain a beautiful, healthy, white smile.
We also offer Zoom Brand Tooth Whitening Services – This form of professional tooth whitening service is non evasive, and utilizes ultra-violet UV lights to help brighten your smile by at least 4 shades. These services are provided over the course of 4 sessions, this process typically takes an hour and a half.
Oral Care After Tooth Whitening
After tooth whitening treatment, it is essential to follow the dentists’ directions to ensure you get the most out of your treatment. For long-lasting results, post-treatment care is critical. This care includes avoiding drinks like coffee, red wine, fruit juice, soda, beer, and black tea. This care also includes avoiding foods that will leave dark stains on your teeth. We encourage our patients also not to smoke and to avoid colored toothpaste and mouthwash.

Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of most patients. We offer several treatment options for whitening your teeth and brightening your smile. Since tooth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is essential to evaluate the replacement of any old fillings or crowns. Replacement of any restorations will be done after bleaching so they will match the newly bleached teeth. Tooth whitening is not permanent. A touch-up may be needed every several years, and more often if you smoke, drink coffee, tea, or wine.
