If you want to improve the appearance of your smile, then there are three factors that need to be considered: tooth placement, shape, and color. Certain cosmetic treatments can be beneficial to change the placement and shape of your teeth, but they don’t always address the color of your teeth.
Causes of Tooth Discoloration
It is common for people to experience a change in teeth color as they age, and certain lifestyle factors can contribute to this discoloration. Don’t worry; Lux Dental offers Zoom teeth whitening to quickly restore your teeth to a beautiful shade of white.
These are common reasons why your teeth might be discolored:
- Drinking soda, coffee, or tea
- Red wine
- Side effects of certain medications
Even if your teeth have changed color, you can use the Zoom treatment to brighten your teeth and restore your smile.
How Does Zoom Whitening Work?
Zoom teeth whitening is administered by dental professionals. When you visit for a tooth whitening treatment, you will walk away with brighter teeth and long-lasting results. A Zoom lamp is used while you relax in the dental chair, which helps to speed up the bleaching process. A hydrogen peroxide whitening gel is used along with the lamp to achieve excellent results.
The lamp helps by breaking down the hydrogen peroxide. Then, the oxygen bleaches the stained areas as it enters the dentin and enamel. The structure of the tooth is left unchanged, and the color is brightened. This treatment takes less than an hour, and you will walk away with noticeable results. After the treatment, you should maintain brushing and flossing habits to avoid discoloration.
Is Tooth Whitening Right for You?
If you want a brighter smile, then you should talk to our team at Lux Dental for more information about the Zoom whitening treatments. We will conduct an examination to determine if you are a good candidate for the treatment.
In some cases, a teeth whitening treatment might be recommended before undergoing other cosmetic dental services, such as veneers, bridges or crowns. The whitening treatment ensures that there is a good match between the natural color of the teeth and the dental restorations that are added to your mouth.
