Teeth Whitening Q & A

What causes yellow teeth?

A variety of factors lead to your teeth turning yellow. Age, certain medications, and the foods you eat and drink may all be contributors. Beverages like red wine, coffee, and tea can leave surface stains on the enamel of your teeth and turn your teeth yellow. Tobacco and smoking are also big contributors to yellowing teeth.

Over time, these surface stains can reach beneath the enamel of your tooth to its dentin, which makes the stain even harder to get out.

Is whitening your teeth safe?

Yes. Teeth whitening is not harmful if you comply with product directions and guidelines. The team at Heights Dental NY offers Zoom whitening treatments for safe, effective results. You can choose to have your teeth whitened in just one visit or gradually with a take-home whitening kit.

In both cases, the Zoom whitening solution is completely safe to put on your teeth and in your mouth. Note that the bleaching agents may cause some non-permanent gum and tooth sensitivity, but this is the only discomfort you might feel.

What is the Zoom in-office procedure like?

Your teeth could be up to eight shades whiter with just one simple Zoom in-office teeth-whitening treatment.* During your appointment, Dr. Tracz or a highly-skilled team member will fit your mouth with upper and lower dental trays. The trays will be filled with an advanced whitening gel.

Dr. Tracz will then cover your lips and gums to protect them from the powerful whitening solution. They put the bleaching solution in the trays and shine a special bright light on your teeth. In a single visit, you sit back and relax for three 15-minute blocks while the light and bleach interact to whiten your teeth.

Between these 15-minute treatments, you wait comfortably, and following the final bleaching treatment, your dental expert applies a gel to your teeth to minimize any post-treatment sensitivity you experience. That’s all. Your teeth are whiter, and your smile is brighter in about two hours.

For a more gradual approach to whitening teeth over a couple of weeks, the Heights Dental NY team also offers at-home teeth-whitening kits.
