Teeth Whitening is Fast, Easy and Effective
Our professional Zoom! teeth whitening procedure is more effective than over-the-counter teeth whitening products. It’s the #1 requested professional whitening brand. We apply a gel solution to your teeth that penetrates the enamel and dentin to remove yellowing from smoking, coffee stains on teeth, and general tooth discoloration. Our procedure can whiten your smile by as much as eight shades. The gel is aided by our specialized light called a Whitening Accelerator. You’ll have a brighter smile in no time.
What Causes Yellow Teeth?
Your teeth may be discolored for a number of reasons.
Food and drink cause tooth discoloration.
Coffee, tea, soda and juices will cause teeth to yellow over time because they’re acidic. It helps to not sip them throughout the course of the day; and that includes lemon-water. (using a straw can reduce the damage) Always take a drink of pure water when you finish a favorite beverage to help wash away the acids that damage tooth enamel.
Tobacco stains teeth.
Many smokers have one or two teeth that are yellowed from cigarettes. Chewing tobacco causes damage to your gums, too. We know these habits are hard to break, but you can reward yourself with beautiful white teeth as inspiration to quit.
Too much Fluoride contributes to tooth discoloration.
A condition known as Fluorosis occurs when someone is exposed to a lot of Fluoride in municipal water systems during childhood. This may be improved with our teeth whitening procedure, too.
Medications affect tooth color.
Some common antihistamines, antibiotics, blood pressure medication and chemotherapy drugs may change the color of teeth by a few shades. Of course, it’s important to follow the advice of your physician and to take your medication as directed. We can whiten your teeth annually to keep the side effect under control.
