Are your teeth looking darker, dingy, or even yellow? Teeth whitening can give you a bright, radiant smile in less than an hour. This fast, convenient, and affordable method of cosmetic dentistry removes years of stains and tooth discoloration essentially in minutes.
Our office in Winter Park can help you achieve beautiful results within your budget and your lifestyle. Just relax in our office while our friendly staff and the whitening treatment work their magic.
Enjoy impressive results, especially after a professional teeth cleaning. A professional cleaning removes any bacteria and food particles that can contribute to tooth discoloration or interfere with the whitening treatment. It’s a great way to prepare your teeth for the best possible results.
Why Whiten Your Teeth?
There are many reasons why teeth can become dingy, dull, or discolored over time. The color of our teeth is actually a combination of the light reflected off the hard outer layer of a tooth (the enamel) and the color of the dentin, or middle layer, underneath the enamel. Some of us are born with thinner enamel—and more visible dentin—because of genetics.
As we age, tooth enamel becomes thinner while the dentin tends to grow darker, affecting our tooth color. Enamel also is porous, so some foods and beverages can seep through it and impact the color as well.
But that morning cup of coffee isn’t the only reason your teeth might appear yellow. The most common causes of tooth discoloration include:
- Tobacco products
- Beverages such as coffee, tea, red wines, and colas
- Certain medical treatments and medications
- Tooth decay or trauma
- Poor dental hygiene
Upcoming dental work such as a crown, a bridge, a veneer or dentures is another reason to have your teeth whitened. The dental porcelain used in such cosmetic and restorative treatments is color-matched to your natural teeth, so they blend in seamlessly with your smile. But the stain-resistant properties of these artificial fixtures means they don’t respond to whitening treatments. So if you want to whiten your teeth after such procedures, your dental work will be more noticeable.
Zoom® Teeth Whitening: Whiter Teeth in One Day
Our office in Winter Park is proud to offer Zoom® WhiteSpeed teeth whitening treatment, which can deliver a smile up to eight shades whiter after just one visit. Zoom is the most requested professional teeth whitening brand in America. This low-intensity treatment not available over-the-counter enables you to relax in our office while you brighten your smile comfortably, even if you have sensitive teeth.
Before getting started, our hygienist or dentist will confirm that you don’t have any cavities or gum disease. Then we’ll assess your current tooth color to design your treatment. Our dental professional next applies a hydrogen peroxide whitening gel to your teeth. Zoom works with a special chairside light that accelerates the whitening process by helping the gel penetrate the teeth, breaking stains and discoloration.
To ensure your comfort, a one-day treatment is divided into three 15-minute sessions for a total treatment time of 45 minutes. You can read, watch TV, or listen to music while you wait, knowing you’ll have a whiter smile when you’re ready to leave.
