What causes teeth to turn dark?
Teeth discoloration is caused by many reasons, including years of stain accumulation from specific foods and beverages as well as cigarette and cigar smoke and chewing tobacco. Some medications can cause teeth to turn dark, as can some diseases. Teeth can turn dark on the outside or they can become discolored inside as a result of trauma, disease, or irregular teeth cleaning. Whitening treatments are ineffective for discoloration that occurs inside the teeth. Before your whitening treatment, your teeth will be examined to help determine the cause of discoloration to ensure whitening is the best option.
How does Zoom Whitening work?
Zoom uses a specially-formulated hydrogen peroxide-based gel developed specifically for professional tooth whitening in a dentist’s office. As a result, it’s much more effective and provides more consistent and longer-lasting results than products you can buy in a store. During the Zoom whitening procedure, the gel will be applied to your teeth and an activating light will be used to help the gel achieve its optimal effects. A mouthpiece will be used to help hold your lips back from your teeth to ensure the entire tooth surface is exposed to the gel and the light. Once the treatment is finished – a process that takes about 15 minutes – the gel will be removed, revealing your whiter, brighter smile.
Will one treatment be enough to see results?
You’ll be able to see whitening results after a single treatment, but many patients opt for three separate treatments spaced a few weeks apart to achieve the best results.
I have porcelain veneers; can they be whitened?
No, whitening products are not made to whiten and lighten restorations like veneers or resin bonding materials. If these become permanently stained, they’ll probably have to be replaced.
Why We Offer Zoom Whitening Instead of Enamel Microabrasion
While many dental offices offer microabrasion teeth whitening to remove discoloration from the surface of teeth, 209 NYC Dental does not.
During the microabrasion process, a dentist isolates the teeth from the gums before removing discolored enamel using microabrasion tools. After removing the discoloration, the dentist polishes the teeth with an acid abrasion mixture before cleaning and rinsing.
In some cases, the yellowing on teeth goes deeper than the surface, where microabrasion tools cannot reach. In these situations, you may need a more effective tooth whitening system to help remove enamel stains, such as the Zoom whitening treatment from 209 NYC Dental.
Zoom dental bleaching treatment from 209 NYC Dental is an effective treatment option for longer-lasting results. Our whitening treatment uses a bleaching effect to aid in correcting the appearance of teeth regardless of their degree of discoloration.
