Teeth Whiteining Q & A

Kenneth Gonzales, D.D.S., P.L.L.C.

What makes my teeth yellow?

Your teeth can turn yellow for a variety of reasons. Certain medications, age, and what you drink and eat can all contribute to unsightly discoloration. Beverages like red wine, coffee, and tea can leave surface stains on the enamel of your teeth and turn your teeth yellow. Other major culprits also include smoking and tobacco.

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

Is it safe to whiten your teeth?

Absolutely. Whitening your teeth is a safe process when you follow product guidelines and instructions. The team at Kenneth Gonzales, DDS, offers Philips Zoom whitening treatments for safe, effective results. You can get your teeth whitened in just one appointment or gradually with a take-home teeth whitening kit.

In both cases, the Zoom solution is completely safe to put on your teeth and in your mouth. You may, however, experience temporary tooth and gum sensitivity due to the bleaching agents.

What's involved in a Zoom in-office procedure?

Zoom in-office teeth whitening is simple and can whiten your teeth up to eight shades lighter in only one visit. However, results may vary by person. During your appointment, a highly skilled team member fits your mouth with upper and lower dental trays. These trays are filled with a hydrogen peroxide whitening solution.

Then, your dental professional covers your lips and gums to shield them from the solution. Next, he or she puts the bleaching solution in the trays and shine a special bright light on your teeth. You sit back and relax as the bleach and light work together to whiten your teeth. The single visit procedure is divided into three 15-minute treatments.

Between treatments, you wait comfortably, and after the last bleaching treatment, your dental expert covers your teeth with a post-treatment gel to reduce any sensitivity you might have as a result of the whitening. Afterward, you’ll have whiter teeth and a gorgeous smile in about two hours.

The Kenneth Gonzales, DDS team also offers at-home teeth whitening kits for a more gradual approach to whitening teeth. An at-home treatment takes up to a couple weeks to work.
