Regardless of how well you care for your teeth, they will eventually lose their pearly white luster. The natural aging process, hereditary factors, lifestyle choices, and other factors can cause tooth discoloration and lead to deep staining. If you're tired of having stained teeth, then professional teeth whitening may be the treatment for you.
The Office of Dr. Bellisario is pleased to offer professional-grade Zoom! Teeth Whitening. For more information about this treatment, please call our Ardmore office at (610) 810-2090 today.
Causes of Teeth Discoloration and Staining
Although some discoloration of your teeth is natural, developing light yellow or even brown stains can make you feel self-conscious about your smile. Teeth discoloration and staining are often the result of:
- Plaque accumulation
- Consuming dark foods and beverages
- Dental trauma
- Some prescription medications (e.g. tetracycline)
- Excessive fluoridation
Professional Teeth Whitening vs. Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening
There are many over-the-counter teeth whitening products available at retail stores that promise to reverse the signs of discoloration and staining. However, these products typically require months of regular use in order to see noticeable results. Zoom! Teeth Whitening achieves a visibly brighter smile with a single in-office treatment.
Additionally, some over-the-counter whitening treatments can be too abrasive, wearing down your enamel the point where the yellow dentin layer begins to show through, thereby defeating the purpose of whitening altogether. Professional-grade teeth whitening is both strong enough to provide effective results, and gentle enough (when applied by an experienced Ardmore cosmetic dentist) to keep your teeth safe.
As part of your Zoom! Teeth Whitening treatment package, you will receive touch-up trays and a take-home version of the whitening gel to maintain your results. When used as directed, this touch-up kit will keep your smile looking brilliant long after your in-office whitening session is over.
