Why Do Teeth Turn Yellow?
Yellowing, discoloration, and stains can be caused or exacerbated by many factors, including:
- Foods you eat and drink
- Smoking and tobacco
Drinks like coffee, tea, and red wine can cause surface stains on the enamel of your teeth and make your teeth appear a yellowish color. Over time, these surface stains can go beneath the enamel of your tooth to the dentin. If a stain reaches the dentin, it’s more difficult to remove.
Is Whitening Your Teeth Safe?
Professional teeth whitening is completely safe if you follow product instructions and guidelines.
Whitening solutions aren’t dangerous to put on your teeth and in your mouth. Modern teeth whitening solutions are designed to minimize tooth and gum sensitivity, so most people report little to no discomfort or sensitivity during their whitening procedures.
How Will My Teeth Be Whitened?
Aesthetic Dental Centers offers the innovative Zoom in-office teeth whitening procedure to clients. The Zoom in-office professional whitening treatment can successfully make your teeth up to eight shades whiter in just one session of about 45 minutes. The Zoom procedure combines strong whitening gel with advanced blue LED light-activated technology for dramatic whitening results. During your appointment, your dentist first ensures your teeth are free from plaque or tartar with professional teeth cleaning. You wear special eyewear and splash-guards to protect your eyes and clothing from the bleaching agent. Your dentist places cheek retractors to expose the entire surface of your teeth and applies a special dental gel and covering to your gums to further reduce sensitivity. Your dentist paints the whitening gel on your teeth and utilizes the halide light technology to activate the gel. The Zoom light works on all teeth simultaneously and is typically applied in three or four 15-minute intervals for best results. Zoom take-home products are also available to enhance your whitening results. In-office teeth whitening can last a few months to a few years.
