Teeth Whitening Q & A

How do people get yellow teeth?

A variety of factors lead to your teeth turning yellow. Certain medications, age, and the things you drink and eat can all contribute. The enamel on your teeth can get surface stains from drinks like red wine, tea, and coffee, and this can make your teeth appear yellow. Major culprits also include smoking and tobacco.

Eventually, the surface stains can get even more challenging to get rid of, because they soak deep into the enamel of your tooth to the dentin.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Definitely. Teeth whitening is not harmful if you comply with product directions and guidelines. For reliable, safe results, the team at Cityview Dental Arts provides Zoom whitening treatments. You can choose to have your teeth whitened in just one visit or gradually with a take-home whitening kit.

In both cases, the Zoom whitening solution is completely safe to put on your teeth and in your mouth. You may, however, experience temporary tooth and gum sensitivity due to the bleaching agents.

What can you expect from the Zoom in-office procedure?

A simple Zoom in-office teeth-whitening procedure could make your teeth up to eight shades brighter after just one appointment.* At your appointment, one of the experienced Cityview Dental Arts team members fits upper and lower dental trays into your mouth. These trays will be filled with a hydrogen peroxide whitening solution.

Your practitioner will then cover your lips and gums to protect them from the powerful whitening solution. After filling the trays with the bleaching solution, they position a specialized bright light over your teeth. You sit back and relax as the bleach and light work together to whiten your teeth for three 15-minute treatments in a single visit.

You're comfortable and relaxed between treatments. At the end, your dental expert places a post-treatment gel on your teeth to reduce any sensitivity you might feel. That’s all. Your teeth are whiter, and your smile is brighter in about two hours.

If you'd rather whiten your teeth gradually over the course of a few weeks, ask the Cityview Dental Arts for an at-home teeth-whitening kit.
