Teeth Whitening Q & A

CAI Dentistry

What are the causes of yellow teeth?

Lots of different factors can cause teeth yellowing and discoloration. Certain medications, age, and the things you drink and eat can all contribute. Beverages like red wine, coffee, and tea can leave surface stains on the enamel of your teeth and turn your teeth yellow. Tobacco and smoking are also significant causes.

Over time, these surface stains can reach beneath the enamel of your tooth to its dentin, which makes the stain even harder to get out.

Is it safe to whiten my teeth?

Yes. Teeth whitening is not harmful if you comply with product directions and guidelines. The team at Cai Dentistry provides Zoom whitening treatments for safe, satisfying results. You can decide to have your teeth whitened in one office appointment or gradually over time with a take-home whitening kit.

In both cases, the Zoom whitening solution is completely safe to put on your teeth and in your mouth. You may experience minor, temporary gum and tooth sensitivity as a result of the bleaching agents.

What's involved in a Zoom in-office procedure?

A simple Zoom in-office teeth-whitening procedure could make your teeth up to eight shades brighter after just one appointment.* At your appointment, an experienced Cai Dentistry team member will fit upper and lower dental trays into your mouth. These trays will hold the advanced whitening gel.

Your practitioner will then cover your lips and gums to protect them from the powerful whitening solution. They put the bleaching solution in the trays and shine a special bright light on your teeth. The light and bleach work in unison to whiten your teeth as you sit back and relax. This occurs with three 15-minute treatments in a single visit.

Between these 15-minute treatments, you wait comfortably, and following the final bleaching treatment, your dental expert applies a gel to your teeth to minimize any post-treatment sensitivity you experience. Then it’s finished. You have whiter teeth and a gorgeous smile in about two hours.

The Cai Dentistry team also offers at-home teeth-whitening kits for a more gradual approach to whitening teeth over a couple weeks.
