Why are my teeth discolored? There are many reasons your teeth can become discolored. Certain types of food can cause teeth to be discolored. These may include coffee, tea, wine, many fruits and vegetables, as well. Some reasons are no fault of yours but rather are caused by treatments such as head or neck radiation and chemotherapy. In addition, some discoloration stems from infections your mothered may have suffered from while pregnant with you. The antibiotics tetracycline and doxycycline are known to discolor teeth when given to children whose teeth are still developing (before age 8). Mouth rinses and washes containing chlorhexidine and cetylpyridinium chloride can also stain teeth. Antihistamines (like Benadryl), antipsychotic drugs, and drugs for high blood pressure also cause teeth discoloration. Moreover, as you age, your teeth began to wear away, revealing the natural color of dentin.
Is whitening my teeth harmful? Zoom! uses a peroxide-based bleaching agent and has been studied extensively and proven to be safe. However, Zoom is not recommended for children under the age of 13 or pregnant or lactating women.
What is the difference between Zoom! and teeth whitening systems available in stores? Teeth whitening done by your dentist can get teeth brighter faster. The bleaching solution is usually much stronger than at-home kits. Also, heat, light, or a combination of the two may be used to speed and intensify the whitening process. The most dramatic results — teeth generally get three to eight shades brighter — usually take several 30- to 60-minute in-office visits. In most cases, Zoom will show considerable results of a brighter smile in a single 2-hour appointment.
How long do the results last? You will continue to have a new, brighter small by following some simple steps. Regular flossing and brushing twice a day with Zoom! Whitening Toothpaste will help ensure your teeth stay lighter. An occasional treatment of Zoom! take home gel will also foster a continual whiter smile. Zoom! is clinically proven to whiten your teeth eight shades in one hour or six shades in just one weekend (Individual results may vary). Only a dentist can get your teeth this white, this fast.
What will take place when I have my teeth whitened with Zoom!? The Zoom! light-activated whitening gel’s active ingredient is Hydrogen Peroxide. As the Hydrogen Peroxide gel is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, bleaching colored substances while the structure of the tooth is unchanged. The Zoom! light supports in activating the Hydrogen Peroxide and assist it to permeate the surface of the tooth. A study has shown that use of the Zoom! lamp increases the effectiveness of the Zoom! gel by 33% or more, giving an average improvement of eight shades, depending on the individual.
Is the Zoom! Treatment painful? Some individuals experience a little too sensitivity to cold. These symptoms usually subside within 1-3 days of treatment or when the treatment has been completed.
How long is the actual Zoom! Treatment? It usually takes around an hour for the preparation of your teeth and the bleaching. These steps are followed by a fluoride treatment and you’re good to go.
Do I need any other type of treatment before the Zoom! Treatment? In general, regular dental checkups are vital for healthy teeth and gums. It is recommended that you have a routine cleaning before the Zoom! Treatment.
