The enamel of your teeth is very porous. As a result, stains from coffee, black tea, red wine, tobacco products, and pigmented foods like berries, can cause deep stains. One of the most common dental problems people wish they could remove are the stains that develop on their teeth. Dr. Fary Yassamy and her talented dental team can help brighten smiles with their in-office tooth whitening technology called ZOOM!
Using over-the-counter treatments, such as whitening strips and toothpaste with whitening gels, may actually hurt your teeth more than help. This is because the abrasive ingredients in toothpastes can wear down the enamel and make your teeth more yellow as the dentin, the layer beneath the enamel, is yellow and begins to show through. Bleaching strips may cause uneven whitening and irritate gums.
For these reasons, professional teeth whitening is in your best interest. Using the ZOOM! whitening procedure can whiten teeth by up to eight shades. The results are much quicker and more consistent than using store-bought whitening agents.
After your teeth are cleaned, your lips and gums will then be covered leaving only your teeth exposed. A whitening gel is then applied to your teeth. The active ingredient in the gel is hydrogen peroxide.
A special light is used to activate the hydrogen peroxide, which then penetrates the enamel of your teeth and helps to remove deep stains. This is done in three 15-minute sessions to break up as much staining and discoloration as possible. A fluoride rinse is used after the final session. You will notice dramatic whitening results right away.
In addition to the in-office ZOOM! teeth whitening procedure, take-home kits are available and are custom made to fit your teeth. The take-home kits are much more effective than over-the-counter products. Using the kits 20 to 30 minutes a day can keep your teeth white and can be done on your own time.
