Why Do I Need Teeth Whitening?
If your smile looks yellow, dull, or stained, you’re not alone. Enamel is very porous and absorbs colors from foods, drinks, and lifestyle habits such as smoking. Common reasons your teeth may not look their brightest include:
- Using tobacco products
- Drinking dark beverages such as soda, coffee, or wine
- Eating pigmented foods like curry or chocolate
- Taking the antibiotic tetracycline
- Having decayed teeth or silver fillings
- Ingesting high amounts of fluoride
- Injuring the teeth
Am I Eligible for Teeth Whitening?
When you come in for teeth whitening, our Grand Island cosmetic dentist will examine your teeth and gums. It’s important to determine that Zoom! teeth whitening is safe for you. We consider several aspects for determining your eligibility for teeth whitening. For example, do you have:
- Tooth-colored restorations, bonding, or fillings?
- Porcelain veneers or Lumineers?
- Dental decay, infection, or trauma?
- Generally good oral health?
- Grayish, brownish, or bluish enamel?
- Exposed tooth roots?
- Advanced gum disease?
- Sensitive teeth?
Benefits of Teeth Whitening
The good news is that Zoom! teeth whitening has been used by more than 10 million patients seeking whiter, healthy-looking smiles. Clinical studies have shown that whitening your teeth is safe and effective, and it is one of the simplest and quickest ways to enhance your smile. We can usually perform your entire treatment in about an hour at our Grand Island cosmetic dental practice.
Teeth Whitening & Sensitivity
For some patients, their teeth and gums may feel more sensitive after teeth whitening. However, Zoom! teeth whitening includes mild desensitizing agents to minimize your tooth and gum sensitivity. In many cases, patients don’t experience any side effects. If you’re worried about experiencing sensitivity, then talk to our Grand Island dental professionals about your concerns.
How to Keep Your Smile Bright
Whitening treatments are designed to last for a long time, but it is possible for your teeth to become discolored again. Smoking, eating pigmented foods, and drinking tannin-based beverages can still stain your teeth, even when they have been whitened. At our Grand Island cosmetic dental practice, we offer you a touch-up kit for maintaining your new smile.
Take-Home Teeth Whitening Kits
If you prefer to whiten your teeth in the convenience of your home, we provide Lumibrite take-home teeth whitening kits. Lumibright comes in two different flavors, mint and fruit, and has a high-grade whitening gel that will brighten your smile in fourteen days or less. Your kit will also include customized mouth trays, which fit comfortably as you whiten.
