What is Sinsational Smile tooth whitening?

Sinsational Smile is a bleaching process that lightens discoloration of enamel and dentin.

What can cause tooth discoloration?

There are many causes. The most common include aging and consumption of staining substances such as coffee, tea or tobacco. During tooth formation consumption of tetracycline, certain antibiotics or excessive fluoride may also cause tooth discoloration.

Who may benefit from tooth whitening?

Just about anyone can benefit from tooth whitening. However, treatment may not be as effective for some as it is for others. With an oral exam, Dr. Alice Chen can determine if you are a candidate for this procedure, including a shade assessment.

Is tooth whitening becoming more popular?

Absolutely! A bright, beautiful smile can make a big difference. In office and take home tray whitening systems makes it easier and faster than ever before.

Is tooth whitening safe?

Yes, research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth under the supervision of a dentist is safe. In fact, many dentists consider whitening the safest cosmetic dental procedure available. As with any tooth whitening product, Sinsational Smile  is not recommended for children under 13 years of age and pregnant or lactating women.

Do the results last a long time?

By following some simple post whitening care instructions, your teeth will always be lighter than they were before. We recommend flossing, brushing twice daily and touch-ups with take-home whitening gel. Our whitening gel is a professional formula product designed specifically to keep your teeth their brightest. They are available through our office.

Is there any difference between over-the-counter tooth whiteners and in office systems?

Yes! Consulting Dr. Alice Chen is always the first step to whitening your teeth safely. There are many options available and we are happy to help you decide which one is best for you – we’ll even give you information on over the counter systems available.

How does the Sinsational Smile In-Office System work?

Sinsational Smile is a light-activated treatment.  The whitening gel’s active ingredient is Hydrogen Peroxide. As Hydrogen Peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, bleaching any colored substance while keeping the structure of the tooth unchanged. The light aids in activating the Hydrogen Peroxide and helps it penetrate the surface of the tooth.

Is the Sinsational Smile In-office procedure painful?

No. During the procedure, patients can actually watch television or listen to music…it’s done in just over 20 minutes!  Many of our patients do this just after their routine dental cleaning.

Are there any side effects?

Very little discomfort has been reported with this system, and virtually no sensitivity!.

How long is the procedure?

The procedure takes just over 20 minutes.
