Teeth whitening often referred to as bleaching, is a non-invasive way to whiten your teeth by changing the color of your tooth enamel. The process is very easily done by Dr. Huang and takes roughly around one hour per visit. At All In One Dental Innovations, we understand how important having a white smile can be. This is why we have two different methods for bleaching treatments available to you.
The treatment can be done in our dentist office or the treatment can be done in the luxury of your own home using whitening trays that are custom made for you and your whitening preferences.
“This is a fantastic, clean and professional facility. The dentist does not try to force sell anything. Very pleased. It is really a breath of fresh air to be able to get work done without getting pressured. He is very gentle and he got rid of an issue that I had tried to get another dentist to do years ago and they wanted to do other stuff ‘first’. I can’t say enough good things about this provider. Highly recommend, and I hate dentists.” 🙂Ginger B.
What should I expect when getting my teeth whitened?
Since every patient has different needs, the treatment will be slightly different for every patient. Depending on the current color of your teeth and the color you would like, you may require more than one visit to achieve your desired results. During just one visit, your teeth can lighten between 5-10 shades. If you still would like more drastic results after your office visit, you may continue the process at home with whitening trays.
At the first visit with Dr. Huang, you will have an impression taken of your teeth which will set the mold for the whitening trays.
During your second visit, the custom made trays will be fit to guarantee they match your bite and this is where any adjustments will be made if necessary. You can wear your whitening trays twice a day for 30 minutes or overnight, depending on your preference. Your treatment length will depend on the severity of your needs and will be determined by Dr. Huang.

Three different tooth whitening treatments
We offer different treatments so you can choose the one you feel is the best fit for you!
The Sinsational Smile® whitening method
This method is very quick and only lasts 20 minutes! Sinsational Smile uses a fast and effective technology with our patented pre-filled silicone trays. This allows the jaw to remain relaxed and the person to remain comfortable throughout the 20-minute procedure. This procedure includes the use of a LED accelerating light that helps to activate the gel’s whitening ingredients at a faster rate, resulting in a brighter smile and whiter teeth in less time.
As part of your procedure, you’ll also receive a take-home maintenance pen to further extend your new brighter smile. The number of treatments needed will vary based on the results you would like to see. One treatment may be enough or you may require repeated treatments to maintain your results.
A dental professional will make molds of your teeth so you can have your own unique, ultra-comfortable KöR Whitening Trays. Then, you’ll have a simple visit to the dental office, followed by wearing your KöR Whitening Trays for two weeks at home while you sleep. The KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching System is completed with a final visit to the dental office.
The KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching™ System works by restoring your teeth’s ability to absorb oxygen. The oxygen from its whitening gel is absorbed into the tooth, dissolving stain molecules. They are different from other whitening trays because they’re thin and form-fitting. You’ll forget they’re even in your mouth. Because these are only worn while you sleep, it doesn’t interfere with your busy day. Also unlike regular trays, the KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching™ Trays seal the bleach inside the tray, preventing the gel from leaking into your mouth.
The KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching™ System whitens teeth dramatically, often lightening them 16 shades or more. Although everyone is different, with the proper KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching system, all teeth will have stunning results. It even whitens tetracycline-stained teeth, previously thought to be impossible! Many have experienced pain during teeth whitening. Maybe you’ve experienced it yourself.
After several years of research, development, and clinical testing, the inventor of the KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching System introduced a whitening gel that, in most cases, produces low to no sensitivity. Most patients have no discomfort or sensitivity after using this technique. Testing has shown that patients who do feel some sensitivity using the KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching System typically feel no more than 10% of the sensitivity they’d feel from other whitening gels.
This is the light activated system. It’s the name asked for by more patients than any other professional whitening brand, and for good reason. Zoom WhiteSpeed delivers maximum results, advanced LED light technology, and variable intensity settings. Zoom WhiteSpeed is clinically proven to whiten teeth up to eight shades in 45 minutes. In a study, WhiteSpeed provided over 50% better results than Opalescence Boost.
Both results were compared in clients immediately following the procedure, after seven days, and also after 30 days. Thanks in part to WhiteSpeed’s advanced LED light technology, light emits at the optimal light spectrum with 100% greater light intensity than the closest competitive lamp. When combined with the pH booster in the whitening gel, our advanced blue LED technology greatly accelerates the whitening treatment. This combined process creates dramatic results that patients will love in just one office visit.
Are there any side effects?
It is common after a teeth whitening treatment for your teeth to be sensitive to hot or cold food and drinks. The sensitivity should subside within a few days after your treatment. If the sensitivity persists, schedule an appointment to see Dr. Huang. Whitening treatments can only change the color of natural tooth enamel and will not change the color of fillings, crowns, or veneers.
If you are scheduled to have fillings, crowns, or veneers done, it is advised to get the whitening treatment done first so the crown or filling color can then be matched to your new whiter teeth. Follow all directions given by your dentist and do not use whitening products more than instructed. Too much whitening can irritate your gums and may even destroy the enamel on your teeth. Teeth whitening is not for everyone. Make sure to get a general checkup to discuss the condition of your teeth and if whitening is an option for you.
What are the benefits of teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening treatments are one of the least expensive cosmetic treatments available and it has instant visible results. The biggest benefit you will gain is the confidence of your brand new smile! Even if you take perfect care of your teeth, they can naturally change color and become dull for many reasons. Some of the reasons your teeth might change color and become dull are:
- Eating and drinking certain foods such as coffee, red wine, or soda.
- Using tobacco products.
- Genetics can change your tooth color surprisingly.
- Some medicines and antibiotics.
- Fluorosis – too much exposure to fluoride when your teeth are developing.
- Not perfect hygiene habits.
