If your pearly whites aren’t so pearly or white due to years of nicotine, caffeine, and dark beverages, you are not alone. Millions of Americans suffer from yellowing or stained teeth. At Dental Healing Arts, we offer the most advanced and safe solutions in teeth whitening procedures. You can choose our in-office Zoom! Whitening or highly effective custom take-home trays and teeth whitening gels. Both of these systems are able to turn back the clock and reveal a brighter, whiter, pearlier and more youthful smile.
Today, our safe, popular, and effective teeth whitening treatments are giving a growing number of people more reasons to smile. The color of your teeth can affect you emotionally, socially, and even professionally. Simply put, those who smile more are considered to be warmer and more inviting. A professional teeth whitening treatment at the Jupiter office of Dental Healing Arts will boost your self-esteem and give you more reasons to smile!
There are several reasons teeth change color. These are a few of the most common reasons teeth change color:
Although most people think of tooth enamel as white, an unstained and natural tooth can range anywhere from pearly white to bluish gray to pale yellow. Even if you floss and brush daily, stains will tarnish your illustrious smile and hamper your confidence.

The fastest and safest way to achieve a vibrant whiter smile is through the in-office Zoom! Whitening procedure. Zoom! Whitening is a professional strength, light-sensitive bleaching gel combined with a highly concentrated bleaching light. In a little more than an hour, your teeth can be transformed from dingy yellow to a brilliant dazzling white. While Zoom! Whitening is an in-office treatment, we also offer custom take-home teeth whitening kits designed to help you keep your new smile as bright as possible for a long time. Like our in-office treatments, our take home treatments provide dynamic results in a surprisingly short amount of time.
For those who prefer in-home treatments, we can customize bleaching trays for you to use at your home. Typically, our in-home treatments include a professional grade whitening solution, which is slightly weaker than the ones we use in the office. It should be used about one hour each day. You will notice results almost instantly, but the best results appear in about one to two weeks of daily treatments.
The market is flooded with over-the-counter teeth whitening products, however, these products are not as effective as in-office products or our prescribed take-home treatments. If you prefer using an OTC product, simply ask us, and we will be happy to suggest the most effective product. At the end of the day, our goal is for you to have a gorgeous smile and healthy teeth. Make sure you use the OTC products as directed and avoid using those products for periods of time longer than recommended.
Dr. Fotek does not recommend using whitening toothpastes as they are abrasive to natural tooth structure and any restorations.
The Zoom! teeth whitening procedure is used to lighten discoloration of the enamel caused by food, drinks, smoking, and age. Zoom! is performed in-office using a special light that accelerates the bleaching process, leaving you with dramatically whiter teeth!
Following all teeth whitening treatments, we advise our patients not to smoke, eat, or drink staining foods for at least 48 hours. This is important because recently whitened teeth will absorb stains easily. In addition, whitening systems can cause an increased level of sensitivity in gums and teeth. However, both of these side effects should gradually pass with time.
If teeth whitening and bleaching don’t get your teeth to your desired color, veneers are your next option to achieve the smile of your dreams. Porcelain veneers are extremely durable and designed to last an extremely long time. Best of all, porcelain veneers don’t stain or discolor. In addition to providing a brilliant smile, they will also cover chips, cracks, and misalignments.
