Frequently Asked Questions About Teeth Whitening

Question: Who qualifies for treatment?

Answer: We recommend this procure for those with surface stains, such as the discoloration that occurs following tobacco use or the consumption of certain foods or drinks with dark pigments, such as soda, coffee, tea, and red wine. We will examine your teeth to assess the cause and extent of your discoloration. We can then decide if this is the best option.

Question: How does the Zoom! system work?

Answer: First, we place a protective covering over your teeth and gums. We then apply a bleaching gel to the teeth. At this stage, a curing light is used to activate the bleaching ingredients. In less than an hour, the system will help remove surface discoloration, brightening the teeth.

Question: Why do our teeth become stained?

Answer: A variety of factors can lead to teeth stains, including smoking, the use of certain medications, injury, and certain foods and drinks. Poor oral hygiene can allow plaque to coat the teeth, which increases the risk of teeth stains.

Question: What can I do to prevent discoloration?

Answer: You can help avoid teeth stains by taking steps to improve your oral hygiene. Each day, we suggest brushing your teeth twice and flossing at least once. A dental cleaning conducted twice a year can completely remove plaque and help your teeth remain bright. With the right steps, you can help your whitening results last for up to six months or more.
