Teeth Whitening Q & A

Why do I have tooth discoloration?

If you’ve noticed your teeth becoming darker or yellow over time, you’re not alone. Many people have tooth discoloration for a variety of reasons, such as:

Dietary staining

Certain foods and beverages can stain your teeth over time. These include red wine, coffee, tea, dark berries, tomato sauce, citrus fruits, beets, and dark-colored sodas, among others.

Improper oral hygiene

Good oral hygiene practices, such as brushing and flossing twice a day, help remove plaque and bacteria buildup from your teeth to keep your smile bright and healthy. If oral hygiene is less-than-stellar, stains can become noticeable faster.

Medications

Antihistamines, high blood pressure medication, and antipsychotic drugs are all known to cause tooth discoloration. Certain antibiotics, especially tetracycline and doxycycline, can also darken and stain your teeth.

Aging

As you age, your hard enamel naturally wears down to expose the darker dentin underneath.

Genetics

Some people simply have thinner enamel than others, which makes their teeth look darker and more yellow in color.

What is Zoom in-office whitening?

Zoom in-office whitening is one of the most effective teeth-whitening systems available. Not only can Zoom brighten your smile by up to eight shades in less than two hours, it’s also perfect for those with sensitive teeth and gums. The bleaching gel contains a buffer to help protect your tooth enamel from damage.

First, Dr. Rastegari examines your mouth and covers your gums and lips. This helps ensure that they aren’t exposed to the whitening gel. Next, she applies the pH-balanced hydrogen peroxide gel to your teeth.

To activate the gel for better stain removal, Dr. Rastegari uses a low-heat light. This step allows the hydrogen peroxide in the gel to attach to the stains and weaken them. Oxygen can then pass through your enamel to remove deep stains and discoloration.

Can I use Zoom whitening at home?

Yes. If you want to brighten your smile on your own time, talk to Dr. Rastegari about your Zoom at-home whitening options. Zoom offers a variety of custom-made whitening trays that fit your teeth perfectly and whiten your teeth in as little as two weeks.

Zoom currently offers two types of take-home trays:

Philips Zoom DayWhite

You can wear DayWhite trays for 30-90 minutes a day to dramatically brighten your smile in as little as two weeks.

Philips Zoom NiteWhite

NiteWhite is the best option if you’d rather wear your trays in the evening or while you sleep. Dr. Rastegari recommends wearing NightWhite for at least two to four hours a night for two weeks to achieve the best results.
