Teeth Whitening Q & A
Why do teeth become discolored?
Teeth can become dull and yellow for a variety of reasons, most of which are related to what you drink, what you eat, and the medications you take. Some of the substances most notorious for staining your teeth include:
- Red wine
- Coffee and tea
- Cigarettes and tobacco
- Some dark-colored foods
As you age, you also lose enamel on your teeth, which causes the yellow dentin layer to show through, and your teeth have more opportunity to stain. The longer these stains sit on the teeth, the deeper they sink into the enamel and more difficult they become to remove.
How can I whiten my teeth?
The office of Iwona Wysocka, DDS, whitens your teeth using Philips Zoom in-office whitening. To begin lifting stains and discolorations, Dr. Iwona Wysocka covers your gums and lips so that they’re not bothered.
Then, she applies a hydrogen peroxide whitening gel directly to your upper and lower teeth and points a bright light at your teeth. The light and the hydrogen peroxide solution interact, lightening your teeth by up to eight shades in one visit.
Dr. Iwona Wysocka breaks up your treatment into three 15 minute chunks, during which all you need to do is sit back and relax. Once your three treatments are complete, Dr. Iwona Wysocka applies post-treatment gel to your teeth in order to reduce sensitivity.
Is teeth whitening safe?
One of the major concerns of potential teeth whitening patients is whether or not the procedure is safe. You’ll be happy to hear that teeth whitening is 100% safe at the office of Iwona Wysocka, DDS.
However, because of the bleaching agents in Zoom whitening, your gums and/or teeth may be sensitive after you complete your treatment.
Is teeth whitening permanent?
No, teeth whitening is not permanent. However, if you treat your teeth well by brushing and flossing, and avoiding foods, beverages, and other things that may stain your teeth, your teeth can continue to gleam for up to a year.
If you’re not happy with the color of your teeth, brighten them up with teeth whitening at Iwona Wysocka, DDS. Book your appointment over the phone today.
