You brush your teeth several times a day. You floss regularly. You use mouthwash. You go to your dentist in North Naples for regular checkups like clockwork. And still, your teeth show stains! Do you experience this frustration? First things. It’s normal. And second, those frustrating stains and discoloration can be solved! Let’s break down the causes of those frustrating stains, then introduce you to Zoom teeth whitening — a professional bleaching system that can remove that frustration.
What causes teeth to change color?
Poor oral hygiene habits can leave your teeth stained and discolored. But even your most diligent oral care may be no match for the sheer staining power of the following common causes of discoloration:
- Drinks like cola, red wine, tea, and coffee.
- Foods like berries, carrots, and curry.
- Medications like antihistamines, antipsychotics, blood pressure medication, and antibiotics are taken in children.
- Getting older.
- Injuries and trauma to your teeth.
If you’re not satisfied by the whiteness of your pearly whites, don’t be too hard on yourself. Remember that your teeth aren’t — even in their most pristine condition — white. They fall on a spectrum between yellow and light gray. Their color is also a function of many factors that are hard to control.
Zoom teeth whitening in North Naples can help with teeth stains
Many dental clinics in North Naples — and worldwide — help their patients achieve their ideal smiles using the Zoom teeth whitening process. Zoom is not a DIY over-the-counter option that will add to your frustration but a professional bleaching system that can improve the color of your teeth by several shades. Professional Zoom whitening is a faster, safer, more effective, and more sophisticated solution for teeth whitening than even the best DIY options.
How does Zoom work?
Zoom teeth whitening in North Naples is a three-step process. Each step occurs in the same one-hour visit. Sometimes the process is repeated more than once in the same visit to produce the best results as efficiently as possible. Our dentist may recommend follow-up sessions if the desired results aren’t achieved in the first session because of major or stubborn stains. Here are the steps.
- Plaque and food particles will be cleaned from your teeth.
- Your dentists will apply a unique bleaching gel to your teeth.
- Laser light will be projected on the gel-covered teeth to help the gel penetrate the enamel layer and bleach away the discoloration affecting the surface of your teeth.
What you should expect after Zoom whitening
You may notice your teeth are unusually sensitive for a day or two after receiving Zoom whitening. Your dentist will do everything possible to minimize that, but it is common, normal, and temporary. You can keep the sensitivity to a minimum by avoiding especially cold and hot foods for a day or two after treatment. Save the soup and ice cream for a few days.
What about your smile? After just one hour’s session at your North Naples dentist, you can expect a smile that is several shades whiter and brighter.
