What Causes Stained Teeth?
There are two types of dental stains, called intrinsic and extrinsic. Extrinsic stains appear on the surface of the teeth, caused by foods and beverages that are high in tannins, like coffee and red wine. Intrinsic stains are harder to remove because they have penetrated deeper into the teeth. These are usually caused by taking certain medication and dental damage, which require professional treatment to be removed.
Types of Professional Teeth Whitening
Depending on your needs, you can choose from our fast, in-office Zoom! Teeth Whitening treatment or our customized take-home kits that you can complete from the comfort of your own home. Both utilize highly concentrated ingredients that provide fast results.
Our take-home whitening kits are customized to fit your unique needs. All you’ll need to do is wear the trays and highly concentrated whitening gel for a prescribed amount of time each day. We’ll discuss the details with you during your consultation. Within about two weeks, you’ll be able to enjoy noticeably whiter teeth by up to several shades!
Our in-office Zoom! treatment takes place over the course of about an hour, so it’s great for patients who are looking for nearly immediate results. First, our team will cover your lips and gums to prevent the whitening gel from getting on them. Then, we’ll apply the highly concentrated whitening gel for 15 minutes and place a UV light on your smile to activate it. Depending on your desire, we’ll continue to remove and reapply the gel for up to three applications. Afterward, we’ll place a sensitivity-reducing topical fluoride gel on your teeth.
