While good hygiene and preventive care can help you avoid a lot of things, teeth stains aren’t always one of them. In fact, many people with excellent oral health can still experience stained teeth due to exposure to things like food and beverages. Fortunately, we offer a convenient and highly effective option for erasing them at our Newhall, CA, dental office. With professional, custom-designed Zoom! teeth-whitening, you can quickly and comfortably erase the stains on your teeth, brightening your smile significantly with minimal treatment.
How does it work?
Teeth-whitening treatment consists of a powerful, but safe, bleaching agent that is applied to the surfaces of your teeth. It works by gently breaking up and removing the staining deposits that mar your tooth enamel, eliminating the stains and brightening your teeth several shades. The treatment can be designed to fit your specific schedule, needs, and preferences, and can be performed either in our office or from the comfort of home.
How long does it take?
The length of teeth-whitening treatment depends on the specific method you choose. For example, in-office treatment can be completed in a single visit to our office. After carefully applying the Zoom! whitening gel to your teeth, we can use a special light to activate it and erase your teeth stains quickly. An at-home kit can also be custom-designed with trays that allow you to apply the gel more leisurely at home. Using the trays, you can apply the gel for a couple of hours each day, and most patients see optimal results in as little as 10 days.
Do the results last forever?
Teeth-whitening is highly effective at brightening your smile, but because some common teeth stains develop naturally, the results of your treatment may not last forever. To slow down the development of stains in the future, continue taking care of your teeth by brushing them at least twice and flossing at least once every day. Also, visit your dentist for routine checkups and cleaning as often as recommended to remove staining substances like plaque and tartar (calcified plaque).
What other options do you have?
While teeth-whitening can effectively erase most common teeth stains, severe and/or internal forms of discoloration often require more involved cosmetic treatment. Such discoloration can result from a number of reasons, and they occur beneath your teeth’s semi-translucent enamel. This means teeth-whitening cannot reach them, and in some cases, their cause may be more serious. To brighten your smile and ensure your optimal oral health, we can precisely diagnose the cause of your tooth discoloration and recommend a more appropriate cosmetic or restorative treatment.
