Is your smile lacking its usual luster and shine? Dr. Maggie Abadan can recommend several ways to inject some life into your smile, including teeth whitening. An in-office teeth whitening session is a simple way to improve the color of your teeth and brighten up your entire face. Get rid of stains and discoloration easily with a Zoom! whitening treatment.
Common Causes of Tooth Stains
Your teeth are vulnerable to staining or discoloration from the following sources:
- Tobacco use
- Certain medications (e.g., tetracycline)
- Poor dental hygiene
- Dental disease
Protect your teeth from discoloration by cutting back on the aforementioned beverages and tobacco and following good hygiene habits like brushing and flossing regularly and getting professional cleanings every six months.
How Teeth Whitening Can Enhance Your Smile
Teeth whitening / teeth bleaching lifts stains and discoloration from your teeth for a brighter, whiter smile. Teeth whitening can be administered during an in-office appointment at our dental practice, or in the comfort of your own home using special products.
What to Expect During Teeth Whitening Treatment
Dr. Abadan and our team use Zoom teeth whitening technology to brighten your smile. First, Dr. Abadan covers your lips and gums with a special guard, leaving only your teeth exposed. She applies Zoom whitening gel to the teeth, and then applies the Zoom light to the teeth to activate the gel. This combination works together to penetrate your teeth and lift stains and discoloration. While the gel and light is working its magic, you are free to relax with some music, a book or movie. The gel is then re-applied two or three more times for 15-minute increments. Total treatment time runs about 45 minutes to an hour.
Results are practically instantaneous. Your teeth will be up to eight shades whiter within 45 minutes of your in-office Zoom treatment.
Dr. Abadan will send you home with touch-up trays to maintain your brighter, whiter smile. You can use the trays before a big event or periodically to boost up the results of your in-office session.
