Zoom Q & A

IQ Family & Cosmetic Dentistry

What causes yellow teeth?

Lots of different factors can cause teeth yellowing and discoloration. The foods you eat and drink, certain medications, and age might all be contributing factors. Beverages like red wine, coffee, and tea can leave surface stains on the enamel of your teeth and turn your teeth yellow. Big contributors include tobacco and smoking, too.

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

Are you sure teeth whitening isn't dangerous?

Definitely. As long as you obey product instructions and guidelines, teeth whitening is an entirely safe process. The team at IQ Family & Cosmetic Dentistry provides Zoom whitening treatments for safe, satisfying 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?

Zoom in-office teeth-whitening is simple and could whiten your teeth by up to eight shades in only one visit.* During your appointment, a highly-skilled IQ Family & Cosmetic Dentistry team member will fit your mouth with upper and lower dental trays. These trays will contain the bleaching solution.

Your practitioner will then cover your lips and gums to protect them from the powerful whitening solution. After filling the trays with the bleaching solution, they position a specialized bright light over your teeth. You sit back and relax as the bleach and light combine to whiten your teeth during three 15-minute treatments, all happening in a single visit.

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, and your smile is brighter in about two hours.

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