What Is Professional Teeth Whitening?
Professional teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic treatment designed to remove stubborn stains and boost the brightness of your smile. At Sterling Heights Dentistry, we provide patients with Zoom! Teeth Whitening — a high-quality bleaching product that breaks stains into smaller particles before lifting them from your teeth. You can achieve a bright white smile from the best dentist in Sterling Heights with just one appointment.
Reasons Why Teeth Stain
Patients may suffer from stained teeth for several reasons, some of which include:
- Certain foods & beverages — foods such as blueberries, pomegranates, and curry are known to stain teeth, as well as drinks including coffee, tea, red wine, and soda
- Tobacco use — chewing or smoking tobacco for a prolonged period can cause your teeth to become yellow
- Lack of oral hygiene — without brushing and flossing every day, teeth can harbor unwanted bacteria and begin to affect your oral health and the color of your smile
- Certain medications — some medications, such as antibiotics, can stain your teeth
- Age — as we age, our teeth become darker and lose some of their natural shine

How Zoom! Teeth Whitening Works
You’ll start with an initial consultation at our Sterling Heights dental office. Once our dentist, Dr. Hindi, determines that teeth whitening is the perfect treatment for your smile goals, she’ll create your customized plan. In just one appointment, Zoom! Teeth Whitening will deliver a beautiful smile with results that can last up to three years.
Our cosmetic treatment uses a powerful bleaching gel that’s more concentrated than over-the-counter whitening products. Dr. Hindi will carefully apply the gel to your teeth. Once the gel is applied, she’ll expose your teeth to a special dental light to accelerate the bleaching process. As the hydrogen peroxide in the gel activates, it will begin to remove built-up stains and discoloration from deep within your enamel.
Your whitening appointment will last around one hour, and afterward, your smile will be brighter than ever before. Dr. Hindi will provide you with a whitening kit to take home, so you can preserve your new smile. By enhancing your smile as needed on your own, you can ensure that you get the most out of your teeth whitening treatment.
