Teeth Whitening Q & A
Why do teeth turn yellow?
Your teeth turn yellow for a variety of reasons. The foods you eat and drink, certain medications, and age can all be contributing factors. Red wine, tea, and coffee can all stain the enamel on your teeth, making your teeth appear yellow.
Smoking and other tobacco products also stain teeth. Over time, surface stains can reach beneath your tooth’s enamel to its dentin, which makes stains harder to remove.
Is teeth whitening safe?
Yes. Whitening your teeth is a safe process when you follow product guidelines and instructions. The dental team at Clemmons Village offers Philips Zoom whitening treatments for safe, satisfying results at home and sodium peroxide treatments in the office.
Your teeth appear whiter after just one in-office treatment. Using take-home teeth-whitening kits is a more gradual process.
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 can experience minor, temporary gum and tooth sensitivity as a result of the bleaching agents.
What is the Zoom in-office procedure like?
Zoom in-office teeth whitening is simple, and can whiten your teeth up to eight shades in just one visit.* During your appointment, one of the experienced dentists at Clemmons Village fits upper and lower dental trays into your mouth. These trays contain a hydrogen-peroxide whitening gel.
Then, your dental professional covers your lips and gums to shield them from the solution. The trays are filled with the whitening gel, and your dentist positions a special LED lamp over your teeth. You’ll then:
- Sit back and relax, as the bleach and light combine to whiten your teeth
- Complete three 15-minute treatments, all happening during a single appointment
- Wait comfortably between treatments until your final bleaching treatment is done
- Receive a gel applied your teeth to minimize post-treatment sensitivity
That’s it. You’ll have whiter teeth and a gorgeous smile in about two hours.
Clemmons Village team members offer a take-home teeth-whitening kit for a less immediate approach to whitening teeth over the course of several weeks.
