Teeth Whitening Q & A

Why do teeth turn yellow?

Lots of different factors can cause teeth yellowing and discoloration. Certain medications, the stuff you drink and eat, and your age can all play a role. Beverages like red wine, coffee, and tea can leave surface stains on the enamel of your teeth and turn your teeth yellow. Smoking and tobacco are also big culprits.

Over time, these surface stains can reach beneath the enamel of your tooth to its dentin, which makes the stain even harder to get out.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Certainly. Teeth whitening is not harmful if you comply with product directions and guidelines. The professionals at The Dental Way offer Zoom whitening treatments for safe, reliable results. You can choose to have your teeth whitened in just one visit or gradually with a take-home whitening kit.

The Zoom whitening solution is not dangerous to put in your mouth and on your teeth in either instance. The only discomfort you may experience is temporary tooth and gum sensitivity from the bleaching agents.

What's involved in a Zoom in-office procedure?

Your teeth could be up to eight shades whiter with just one simple Zoom in-office teeth-whitening treatment.* At your appointment, an experienced The Dental Way team member will fit upper and lower dental trays into your mouth. These trays will be filled with a hydrogen peroxide whitening solution.

Next, your practitioner covers your gums and lips to protect them from the solution. After filling the trays with the bleaching solution, they position a specialized bright light over your teeth. In a single visit, you sit back and relax for three 15-minute blocks while the light and bleach interact to whiten your teeth.

Between treatments, you wait comfortably, and after the last bleaching treatment, your dental expert places a post-treatment gel on your teeth to reduce any sensitivity you might feel. Then it’s finished. You have whiter teeth and a gorgeous smile in about two hours.

The Dental Way team can also provide take-home teeth-whitening kits for a less immediate approach to whitening teeth over a couple of weeks.

Call or schedule a consultation at The Dental Way to learn more about Zoom in-office teeth-whitening treatments as well as take-home whitening options. You don't have to live with teeth stains and discoloration.
