What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is the term for cosmetic dental treatments that remove teeth stains to whiten and brighten your teeth.

You can have your teeth whitened with the help of a take-home whitening kit or in-office treatment at Burman Dental, L.L.C.

Before any whitening procedure, the first step is a teeth cleaning to remove surface stains, tartar, and plaque that might prevent the whitening agent from making full contact with your teeth.

Why do teeth become discolored?

Your teeth can stain and become discolored over time due to a number of outside factors and certain substances, including:

  • Trauma
  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Medications
  • Genetics
  • Food and beverages like berries, red wine, and coffee
  • Tobacco

Certain diseases, such as tooth decay, can also cause your teeth to stain.

What teeth whitening treatments are available?

You can choose from various teeth whitening treatment options, such as the Zoom! In-office whitening system and custom take-home kits.


Zoom! is an in-office professional teeth whitening treatment that usually takes about an hour with instant results. Zoom! is a successful method of whitening that uses a powerful light paired with an advanced whitening gel to break up and diminish your unwanted teeth stains.

Take-home kits

For a more gradual process, you can choose the professional custom take-home kits. Our team will select the best whitening gel for you, make a custom-fitted tray, and provide you with specific instructions based on your teeth whitening goals.

How does teeth whitening work?

Most teeth whitening treatments involve the use of a special whitening gel containing special dental hydrogen peroxide to break up and disperse the stains into smaller particles. This makes your teeth appear whiter with less concentration of stained color.

Teeth whitening is now more advanced than ever, and with innovative systems like Zoom!, light energy combined with a specially formulated gel can safely whiten teeth with impressive results.

How do I know which teeth whitening treatment is right for me?

If you’re not sure which teeth whitening treatment is right for you, Burman Dental, L.L.C. in Jupiter Florida can help. Steven A. Burman, DMD, Christopher Rodriguez, DDS, and Amanda R. Rodman, DDS, can discuss your available options and help you decide what’s best.
