Zoom! Whitening Q&A

What causes tooth discoloration?

Yellow, stained, or discolored teeth are caused by a number of different factors. Smoking is a major contributor to yellow teeth. Certain drinks like coffee, tea, cola, and red wine can cause stains on the surface of your teeth. 

Over time, these stains can penetrate your tooth enamel, worsening your discoloration and causing an overall dark or yellow appearance to your teeth. Your teeth can also become discolored as a result of age. 

Teeth whitening is an easy way to boost your confidence and restore a healthy appearance to your smile. Zoom teeth whitening allows you to achieve a noticeably brighter smile in just one visit. 

How does Zoom teeth whitening work?

Zoom in-office teeth whitening is a simple and effective method of bleaching your teeth. It uses a powerful hydrogen peroxide-based whitening gel along with a protective sealant that effectively lifts stains from your tooth enamel while protecting you against tooth sensitivity. 

One of the biggest concerns patients have about teeth whitening is tooth sensitivity. Zoom bleaching is designed to deliver powerful results with little to no sensitivity. 

To perform your treatment, your provider at Arden Dental Services puts a protective cover over your gums and lips, leaving only your teeth exposed. Next, they apply the powerful whitening gel and allow you to sit for 15 minutes before applying another layer. 

Depending on your needs, a special light may be used to enhance the effectiveness of the whitening gel. Your provider applies layers of the whitening gel in three 15-minute intervals. To complete the procedure, they remove the whitening gel and apply a layer of the protective sealant. The entire process takes about 45 minutes. 

How do I maintain my results?

Although Zoom bleaching is effective, the results aren’t permanent. The longevity of your bright smile depends on your diet, lifestyle habits, and oral hygiene. If you want to maintain a bright smile, you should eliminate habits like smoking and limit staining foods like coffee or red wine. 

After your treatment, you and Dr. Pavlov discuss your treatment options for maintaining your results. Periodic maintenance treatments or take-home whitening trays are great ways to extend your whitening results.
