Teeth Whitening Q & A

Avalon Dental

How do people get yellow teeth?

Your teeth can turn yellow for a variety of reasons. The foods you eat and drink, certain medications, and age might all be contributing factors. Surface stains on the enamel of your teeth from drinks like tea, coffee, and red wine, can make your teeth appear yellowish. Smoking and tobacco are also big culprits.

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 it safe to whiten your teeth?

Absolutely. Teeth whitening is not harmful if you comply with product directions and guidelines. The team at Avalon Dental offers Zoom whitening treatments for safe, effective results. You may prefer to get your teeth whitened in only one appointment if you have a busy schedule, or steadily over time with a take-home teeth 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. Note that the bleaching agents may cause some non-permanent gum and tooth sensitivity, but this is the only discomfort you might feel.

How does the Zoom in-office procedure work?

A simple Zoom in-office teeth-whitening procedure could make your teeth up to eight shades brighter.* The Avalon Dental team can complete your zoom teeth whitening treatment in just two visits. At your first appointment, an experienced team member will perform a consultation, and also take impressions for upper and lower dental trays, which can be used after the whitening for sensitivity care, or any at home follow up whitening.

At the second visit, your dental professional performs the whitening. They will cover your gums to shield them from the solution and will then place the bleaching solution on the teeth and 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 will give you your trays and place a gel in them to minimize any post-treatment sensitivity you experience. Then you're done. You have whiter teeth and a gorgeous smile.

For a more gradual approach to whitening teeth over a couple of weeks, the Avalon Dental team also offers at-home teeth-whitening kits.

To learn more about Zoom in-office and take-home options for teeth whitening, call or schedule a consultation at Avalon Dental today. You deserve an outstanding smile.
