Teeth Whitening Q & A

Why are my teeth discolored?

There are quite a few ways in which your teeth can lose their luster, such as:

  • Bad oral hygiene and at-home care
  • Drinking too many darkly pigmented beverages, like red wine, coffee, or soda
  • Eating too many foods with dark pigments, like berries or carrots
  • Consuming tobacco products
  • Medications, like certain antihistamines, and medications for high blood pressure
  • Early exposure to certain antibiotics (tetracycline and doxycycline)

Discolored teeth can also happen naturally with age. As you get older, the enamel on your teeth gets thinner, exposing the soft inner dentin, which naturally turns yellow over time.

Can’t I just whiten my teeth with over-the-counter products?

Over-the-counter whitening strips and trays have become an incredibly popular solution for teeth whitening, but they’re no substitute for a professional-grade treatment, and in some cases, can even be harmful to your oral health.

The bleaching solution used in the products at your local drug store isn’t nearly as strong as what you get with a professional treatment at Presidential Dental Group. And since the strips and trays are generic and not designed to hug the contours of your unique smile, the bleaching solution frequently leaks out and irritates your gums.

If you want to safely and effectively restore the shine to your smile, you should do it with one of the dental professionals at Presidential Dental Group.

What are my teeth whitening options?

Presidential Dental Group provides you with high-quality whitening treatments using the Philips Zoom! in-office whitening system.

When you come in for your whitening procedure, your dentist first protects your gums with a special covering, then applies a special whitening gel to your teeth. The whitening gel contains hydrogen peroxide, which works to whiten your teeth by breaking up the molecular bonds that compose the stains in and on your teeth. Your dentist then shines a special LED light onto your teeth to enhance the process by helping the whitening solution work more quickly and effectively.

Whitening treatments with the Philips Zoom! system are clinically proven to get your teeth up to eight shades whiter in just one 45-minute treatment. The Philips Zoom! system is also the only whitening treatment to use ACP (amorphous calcium phosphate), which reduces sensitivity and improves the luster of your teeth, giving you a smile that’s not only better looking but also healthier!
