What can cause tooth discoloration?
There are many causes of tooth discoloration and staining. The most common include aging and consumption of staining substances such as coffee, tea, and tobacco. During tooth formation, consumption of tetracycline, certain antibiotics, and/or excessive fluoride may also cause tooth discoloration.
Who may benefit from tooth whitening?
Just about anyone can benefit from tooth whitening. However, treatment may not be as effective for some as it is for others. With an oral exam, Dr. Trautmann can determine if you are a candidate for this procedure.
Is tooth whitening safe?
Yes, research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth under the supervision of a dentist is safe. In fact, many dentists consider whitening the safest cosmetic dental procedure available. As with any tooth whitening product, Zoom! is not recommended for children under 13 years of age and pregnant or lactating women.
Do the results last a long time?
By following some simple post-whitening care instructions, your teeth will always be lighter than they were before. We recommend flossing once daily, brushing twice daily, and whitening touch-ups.
Is there any difference between over-the-counter tooth whiteners and our whitening system?
Yes! Consulting Dr. Trautmann is always the first step to whitening your teeth safely. Over-the-counter tooth whitening strips, brush-on gels, and toothpastes take weeks or months to whiten your teeth just a few shades.
Are there any side effects?
Some people experience temporary increased tooth sensitivity to cold during treatment. These symptoms disappear within 1-3 days after interruption or completion of the treatment.
How long is the procedure?
The entire procedure takes just over one hour. The procedure begins with a preparation period followed by one hour of bleaching.
