Teeth Whitening Q & A

Why do teeth turn yellow?

Many factors contribute to teeth yellowing. Age, certain medications, and the foods you eat and drink may all be contributors. 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.

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.

Are you sure teeth whitening isn't dangerous?

Definitely. Teeth whitening is not harmful if you comply with product directions and guidelines. The team at G. Nili, DMD Cosmetic & Family Dentistry offers Zoom whitening treatments for safe, effective 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 and 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's involved in a Zoom in-office procedure?

The Zoom in-office teeth-whitening process is simple and can potentially make your teeth up to eight shades brighter in just one visit.* During your appointment, a highly-skilled G. Nili, DMD Cosmetic & Family Dentistry team member will fit your mouth with upper and lower dental trays. These trays will contain the hydrogen peroxide whitening solution.

Your practitioner will then cover your lips and gums to protect them from the powerful whitening solution. They put the bleaching solution in the trays and shine a special bright light on 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 these 15-minute treatments, you wait comfortably, and following the final bleaching treatment, your dental expert places a post-treatment gel on your teeth to reduce any sensitivity you might feel. That’s all. You have whiter teeth and a gorgeous smile in about two hours.

The G. Nili, DMD Cosmetic & Family Dentistry team can also provide take-home teeth-whitening kits for a less immediate approach to whitening teeth over a couple of weeks.
