Teeth Whitening Q & A

How do people get yellow teeth?

Lots of different factors can cause teeth yellowing and discoloration. Certain medications, age, and the things you drink and eat can all contribute. Beverages like red wine, coffee, and tea can leave surface stains on the enamel of your teeth and turn your teeth yellow. Major culprits also include smoking and tobacco.

Eventually, the surface stains can get even more challenging to get rid of, because they soak deep into the enamel of your tooth to the dentin.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Absolutely. Teeth whitening is not harmful if you comply with product directions and guidelines. For reliable, safe results, the team at A Plus Cosmetic Dentistry provides Zoom whitening treatments. You can decide to have your teeth whitened in one office appointment or gradually over time with a take-home whitening kit.

No matter which course of treatment you choose, the Zoom whitening solution is entirely safe to place on your teeth and in your mouth. You may, however, experience temporary tooth and gum sensitivity due to the bleaching agents.

What is the Zoom in-office procedure like?

The Zoom in-office teeth-whitening process is simple and can potentially make your teeth up to eight shades brighter in just one visit.* At your appointment, an experienced A Plus Cosmetic Dentistry team member will fit upper and lower dental trays into your mouth. These trays will be filled with a bleaching solution.

Next, your practitioner covers your gums and lips to protect them from the solution. After filling the trays with the bleaching solution, they position a specialized bright light over your teeth. You sit back and relax as the bleach and light combine to whiten your teeth during three 15-minute treatments, all happening in a single visit.

Between these 15-minute treatments, you wait comfortably, and following the final bleaching treatment, your dental expert covers your teeth in a post-treatment gel to reduce any sensitivity you might have after the whitening. That’s it. Your teeth are whiter in about two hours, and your smile shows it.

For a more gradual approach to whitening teeth over a couple of weeks, the A Plus Cosmetic Dentistry team also offers at-home teeth-whitening kits.
