Teeth Whitening Q & A

What causes teeth staining?

Regardless of how often and how well you brush your teeth, staining can still occur. The following foods, drinks, and other causes can contribute to discolored teeth:

  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Soda
  • Red wine
  • Dark juices
  • Popsicles
  • Tomato sauce
  • Certain medications
  • Smoking
  • Poor oral hygiene habits

Zoom advanced laser teeth whitening is an excellent way to bring back the radiance and brilliance of a dull smile.

What is Zoom teeth whitening?

Zoom advanced laser teeth whitening is a noninvasive cosmetic dental procedure available at Norwalk Family Dental, in which your teeth become many shades whiter during in-office or at-home whitening treatments. Your dentist offers custom-fit whitening trays to optimize your outcome. Teeth whitening contributes to a brighter, more aesthetically pleasing smile.

Is teeth whitening right for me?

To find out if you’re a good candidate for teeth whitening at Norwalk Family Dental, your provider examines your teeth and gums, reviews your oral health history, and discusses your desired outcome. Dental X-rays might be taken to detect or rule out specific oral health problems. If you have gum disease or tooth decay, the team can treat these issues prior to teeth whitening.

What does Zoom whitening entail?

If you and your dentist determine Zoom teeth whitening is for you, your provider might first clean your teeth. They prep your gums and lips and place a special whitening gel in custom trays over your teeth.

Your Norwalk Family Dental provider applies a laser light to your teeth to accelerate the whitening process, which is painless without any downtime afterward. 

If you opt for at-home Zoom whitening, your dental provider gives you custom-fit trays and whitening gel for use at your convenience. You might need to complete several at-home whitening sessions to achieve the shade of white you desire.

How can I keep my teeth white after teeth whitening?

To keep your teeth as white as possible, limit or avoid foods and drinks that stain. Don’t smoke, brush your teeth twice daily using fluoride toothpaste, and floss every day. See the Norwalk Family Dental team every six months for routine dental cleanings and exams. Complete in-office or at-home Zoom whitening if your smile’s brightness begins to fade.

When you’re ready for whiter, brighter teeth you feel confident to show off, schedule a Zoom teeth whitening consultation with Norwalk Family Dental by phone or online today.
