Teeth Whitening Q & A

The Dental Touch

How do people get yellow teeth?

Many factors contribute to teeth yellowing. The foods you eat and drink, certain medications, and age might all be contributing factors. Beverages like red wine, coffee, and tea can leave surface stains on the enamel of your teeth and turn your teeth yellow. Tobacco and smoking are also significant causes.

Eventually, these surface stains can become even harder to remove because they go beneath the enamel to the dentin of your tooth.

Is it safe to whiten your teeth?

Certainly. Teeth whitening is not harmful if you comply with product directions and guidelines. The team at The Dental Touch offers Zoom whitening treatments for safe, effective results. You can decide to have your teeth whitened in one office appointment or gradually over time with a take-home whitening kit.

The Zoom whitening solution is not dangerous to put in your mouth and on your teeth in either instance. You may experience minor, temporary gum and tooth sensitivity as a result of the bleaching agents.

How does the Zoom in-office procedure work?

Your teeth could be up to eight shades whiter with just one simple Zoom in-office teeth-whitening treatment.* At your appointment, an experienced The Dental Touch team member will fit upper and lower dental trays into your mouth. These trays will contain the hydrogen peroxide whitening solution.

Your practitioner will then cover your lips and gums to protect them from the powerful whitening solution. They put the bleaching solution in the trays and shine a special bright light on your teeth. You sit back and relax as the bleach and light work together to whiten your teeth for three 15-minute treatments in a single visit.

Between treatments, you wait comfortably, and after the last bleaching treatment, your dental expert applies a gel to your teeth to minimize any post-treatment sensitivity you experience. Then it’s finished. Your teeth are whiter in about two hours, and your smile shows it.

The Dental Touch team can also provide take-home teeth-whitening kits for a less immediate approach to whitening teeth over a couple of weeks.

Call or schedule a consultation at The Dental Touch to learn more about Zoom in-office teeth-whitening treatments as well as take-home whitening options. You don't have to live with teeth stains and discoloration.
