Teeth Whitening Q & A

What are the causes of yellow teeth?

Your teeth can turn yellow for a variety of reasons. The foods you eat and drink, certain medications, and age might all be contributing factors. The enamel on your teeth can get surface stains from drinks like red wine, tea, and coffee, and this can make your teeth appear yellow. Big contributors include tobacco and smoking, too.

Eventually, these surface stains can become even harder to remove because they go beneath the enamel to the dentin of your tooth.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Certainly. As long as you obey product instructions and guidelines, teeth whitening is an entirely safe process. Dr. Bajaj provides Zoom whitening treatments for safe, satisfying results. You can choose to have your teeth whitened in just one visit or gradually 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, however, experience temporary tooth and gum sensitivity due to the bleaching agents.

What is the Zoom in-office procedure like?

Zoom in-office teeth-whitening is simple and could whiten your teeth by up to eight shades in only one visit.* During your visit, a professional Charlotte Dental Esthetics team member will fit lower and upper dental trays in your mouth. The trays hold the hydrogen peroxide whitening solution.

Dr. Bajaj will then cover your lips and gums to protect them from the powerful whitening solution. He fills the trays with the bleaching solution and positions a specialized bright light over your teeth. In a single visit, you sit back and relax for three 15-minute blocks while the light and bleach interact to whiten your teeth.

Between these 15-minute treatments, you wait comfortably, and following the final bleaching treatment, Dr. Bajaj or one of his hygienists covers your teeth in a post-treatment gel to reduce any sensitivity you might have after the whitening. Then you're done. In about two hours, you have whiter teeth and a dazzling smile.

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