Teeth Whitening Q & A

What makes my teeth yellow?

A variety of factors lead to your teeth turning yellow. Certain medications, age, and the things you drink and eat can all contribute. Surface stains on the enamel of your teeth from drinks like coffee, tea, and red wine, can make your teeth look yellow. Tobacco and smoking are also significant causes.

Eventually, these surface stains can become even harder to remove because they go beneath the enamel to the dentin of your tooth.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Certainly. Teeth whitening is not harmful if you comply with product directions and guidelines. The team at Shine Dental provides Zoom whitening treatments for safe, satisfying results. You can get your teeth whitened in just one appointment or gradually 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. You may experience minor, temporary gum and tooth sensitivity as a result of the bleaching agents.

What can you expect from the 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 Fremont dentist will fit upper and lower dental trays into your mouth. These trays will hold the bleaching 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. The light and bleach work in unison to whiten your teeth as you sit back and relax. This occurs with three 15-minute treatments in a single visit.

Between these 15-minute treatments, you wait comfortably, and following the final bleaching treatment, your Fremont dentist applies a gel to your teeth to minimize any post-treatment sensitivity you experience. That’s all. Your teeth are whiter, and your smile is brighter in about two hours.

For a more gradual approach to whitening teeth over a couple of weeks, the Shine Dental team also offers at-home teeth-whitening kits.
