Your smile is powerful and speaks volumes long before you utter a word. If you’re hiding your smile because of stained and yellowing teeth, professional teeth whitening can help you flash a grin of confidence and vitality again.
At Aura Dentistry, our team of dental experts, led by Drs. Negar Tehrani and Chang Yi, wants to ensure that you have the tools you need to improve both the form and function of your teeth. As part of our extensieve suite of services, we offer professional teeth whitening with the industry-leading Zoom!® system.
In the following, we explore how teeth become discolored and how we can quickly and easily remedy the problem, giving you something to really smile about.
Behind lackluster teeth
There are many factors that contribute to dull, yellow, and stained teeth, starting with that cup of coffee or tea you have in the morning. Many things you eat or drink can leave their marks in the form of stains that no amount of brushing seems to clear away.
Another factor is the natural thinning of your enamel as you get older. As this protective layer wears down, the brown dentin inside your teeth can begin to show through, which is what creates the yellowing effect.
There are other factors, such as tobacco use, antibiotics, and poor hygiene that can also lead to discolored teeth.
Regardless of what’s behind your less-than-white teeth, the good news is that we have the perfect solution with our Zoom! Whitening system.
With our Zoom! Whitening system, we can brighten your teeth by up to eight shades in just a single one-hour visit. When you come in, we apply a hydrogen peroxide-based whitening compound to your teeth, making sure to protect your gums beforehand. Once the bleaching agent is in place, we use a special light to activate the compound.
We repeat this process up to four times (15 minutes each time) until we get to your desired goals. Once we’re finished, you’re free to go out into the world with a dazzling smile.
Why go professional?
We know that any walk down the tooth care aisle at your local pharmacy or grocery store is met by product after product that claims to whiten and brighten teeth. While these products can make small improvements, they don’t contain the professional-grade agents that our in-office Zoom! system features.
With Zoom!, you get dramatic results in an hour and we also ensure that your teeth and gums are protected throughout.
Maintaining your pearly whites
After your Zoom! whitening, you can maintain these great results by following a few simple rules of thumb, including:
- Brushing and flossing daily
- Rinsing after meals (and after your coffee!)
- Avoiding foods with excessive food coloring (think sodas)
- Keeping up with your regular dental cleanings
