Among other reasons, tooth discoloration can occur as a result of lifestyle choices, diet, medicine. Regarding lifestyle choices, how well you take care of your teeth can affect how your teeth look. If you don’t brush and floss daily, plaque and tartar can form and discolor your teeth. Cigarettes can also damage your enamel and give you bad breath.
Regarding diet, coffee, tea, and wine can stain your teeth. And the more you consume substances like these, the more you can stain your teeth.
Regarding medications, drugs that contain tetracycline can discolor your teeth. This antibiotic can turn your teeth brown and gray. If you take this kind of medicine, speak with your primary care physician about alternatives.
Before starting the procedure, your dentist covers your lips and gums to protect them from the bleaching agent. Your provider then applies the Zoom gel directly to your teeth and shines the Zoom lamp onto your teeth.
The entire treatment will last for about 45 minutes. During your session, you can sit back and relax, check your email, or watch TV.
Your dentist at Comprehensive Family Dentistry can also recommend a series of over-the-counter products to increase the results of your teeth whitening treatment, like toothpaste or whitening strips.
Teeth whitening treatments aren’t permanent. If you maintain proper oral hygiene, you can make your results last for six months or longer. In some cases, you might need more than one treatment depending on the depth and color of your stains.
