Teeth Whitening Q & A
Why are my teeth stained and yellow?
Yellowing and discolored teeth occur as a result of the natural aging process. As you get older, the thin outer layer of your teeth (enamel) chips, cracks, and flakes away.
Over time, this reveals the inner portion of your teeth (dentin). Dentin is naturally yellow in color; the more enamel you lose, the more visible your dentin becomes.
Other factors that contribute to stained or yellow teeth include:
- Poor oral hygiene
- Tobacco use
- Drinking dark-colored beverages
You might also develop yellow or discolored teeth if you take prescription medications that contain tetracycline.
What is teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening is a cutting-edge cosmetic dentistry procedure that removes stains and discoloration from the surface of your teeth.
The majority of modern teeth whitening solutions use carbamide peroxide as their main bleaching ingredient. Carbamide peroxide is in the same family as hydrogen peroxide and presents very few side effects. In addition, it’s FDA-approved and safe for people of all ages.
Are there different types of teeth whitening treatment?
At Veal Dental Care, our team offers several different types of teeth whitening treatment, including:
Philips Zoom! QuickPro
Philips Zoom! QuickPro is one of the fastest ways to whiten your teeth. It can give you a smile that’s up to four shades brighter in an easy, 30-minute appointment. Dr. Veal simply preps your mouth and gums, then carefully applies a thin layer of whitening varnish to your teeth.
The varnish dries almost instantly, so you don’t need to use a whitening lamp to get results. Dr. Veal finishes your treatment by applying a layer of protective sealant that keeps your mouth safe from sensitivity, then sends you on your way.
Because the QuickPro method is so fast and easy, many patients choose to add it at the end of their regular dental visits.
Philips Zoom! WhiteSpeed
Philips Zoom! WhiteSpeed can brighten your smile by up to eight shades with a safe and easy appointment that only takes 45 minutes.
Dr. Veal preps your mouth for the treatment, applies a thin layer of whitening gel, then uses a special WhiteSpeed blue LED lamp to accelerate the whitening process.
He repeats the process three times, or until you’ve reached your desired shade, and then sends you home with a beautiful and stunning new smile.
