Teeth Whitening Q & A

What makes my teeth yellow?

Lots of different factors can cause teeth yellowing and discoloration. Certain medications, the stuff you drink and eat, and your age can all play a role. Surface stains on the enamel of your teeth from drinks like tea, coffee, and red wine, can make your teeth appear yellowish. Big contributors include tobacco and smoking, too.

Over time, these surface stains go beneath the enamel to the dentin of your tooth, making the stain even harder to remove.

Is whitening your teeth safe?

Yes. When you follow product specifications and instructions, whitening your teeth is a harmless process. For reliable, safe results, the team at Salem Dentistry provides Zoom whitening treatments. You can choose to have your teeth whitened in just one visit or gradually 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. The only discomfort you may experience is temporary tooth and gum sensitivity from the bleaching agents.

What is the Zoom in-office procedure like?

A simple Zoom in-office teeth-whitening procedure could make your teeth up to eight shades brighter after just one appointment.* At your appointment, an experienced Salem Dentistry team member will fit upper and lower dental trays into your mouth. These trays will hold the hydrogen peroxide whitening gel.

Then, your dental professional covers your lips and gums to shield them from the 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.

You wait comfortably between treatments until your final bleaching treatment is complete, then your dental expert applies a gel to your teeth to minimize any post-treatment sensitivity you experience. Then it’s finished. In about two hours, you have whiter teeth and a dazzling smile.

For a more gradual approach to whitening teeth over a couple of weeks, the Salem Dentistry 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 Salem Dentistry today. You deserve an outstanding smile.
