Teeth Whitening Q & A

Why do teeth turn yellow?


Your teeth can turn yellow for a variety of reasons. Certain medications, what you drink and eat, and your age can all play a role. Surface stains on the enamel of your teeth from drinks like coffee, tea, and red wine can make your teeth look yellow. Big contributors include tobacco and smoking, too.

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 it safe to whiten your teeth?


Certainly. Teeth whitening is not harmful if you comply with product directions and guidelines. The professionals at Quality Dental Center Inc. offer Zoom whitening treatments for safe, reliable results. You may prefer to get your teeth whitened in only one appointment if you have a busy schedule, or steadily over time with a take-home teeth whitening kit.

The Zoom whitening solution is not dangerous to put in your mouth or on your teeth in either instance. Note that the bleaching agents may cause some non-permanent gum and tooth sensitivity, but this is the only discomfort you might feel.

What is the Zoom in-office procedure like?


Your teeth could be up to eight shades whiter with just one simple Zoom in-office teeth-whitening treatment.* During your visit, a professional Quality Dental Center Inc. team member will fit lower and upper dental trays in your mouth. The trays hold the hydrogen peroxide whitening solution.

Your practitioner will then cover your lips and gums to protect them from the powerful whitening solution. They fill the trays with the bleaching solution and 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.

You wait comfortably between treatments until your final bleaching treatment is complete, then your dental expert covers your teeth in a post-treatment gel to reduce any sensitivity you might have after the whitening. That’s it. Your teeth are whiter in about two hours, and your smile shows it.

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