Discoloration of teeth
The natural color of your teeth is different for every person. The color of teeth can be broadly classified into four categories namely Gray, Reddish Gray, Reddish Brown and Reddish Yellow. The teeth tend to get discolored when they are exposed to dark-colored fluids, smoking and because of certain medications. During a cosmetic dental consultation, our dentist finds the cause for discoloration and will recommend a specific treatment. The discoloration is broadly classified into two type’s namely internal and external discoloration. Through teeth whitening, the stains are cleared from the enamel layer and the teeth are brightened.
Zoom Teeth Whitening
The teeth and gums should be free from infection in order to undergo any teeth whitening procedure. The first and foremost step taken by our team is to examine the oral cavity. We measure the brightness of the teeth using a shade scale. We take pictures of your teeth. The treatment starts with the application of a protective gel to the gums and Zoom hydrogen peroxide gel to the teeth. A special Zoom light is shined over teeth for 15 minutes. The hydrogen peroxide undergoes oxidation and clears stains from enamel layer. This process is repeated three times. Tooth whitening takes less than an hour and patients can see the results immediately after the treatment. Sometimes a professional tooth cleaning may be recommended before the Zoom tooth whitening.
