What Causes Teeth Stains
During your visit with us, our dentist in Fishkill will examine your teeth to determine what caused the stains or discoloration. Some types of stains are extrinsic; this means something stained the outer layer of the tooth enamel. These types of problems can usually be addressed by a professional teeth cleaning followed by Zoom! teeth whitening:
- caused by red wine, coffee, tea, soda, or colored fruit juices
- caused by food coloring used in many types of candy
- caused by repeated exposure to food rich in tannins: blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, tomatoes and cherries. If it can stain your clothes, it can usually stain your teeth.
- caused by smoking
- caused by age
There are some types of tooth stains that are intrinsic, which means the inner structure of the tooth darkens. Teeth whitening may not be able to help you if the stains were caused by medication, including exposure to tetracycline antibiotics while in utero. Dental decay and trauma to the tooth can also cause the tooth to become discolored. Our dentist will be able to let you know the cause of your stained teeth and the most effective way to restore a beautiful smile.
Professional Zoom! Teeth Whitening In-Office
How would you like to whiten your teeth up to eight shades in less than an hour? Our Fishkill dentist offers professional Zoom! teeth whitening right in our office. With this method, the dentist applies a light-activated bleaching gel to the teeth. It causes the teeth to get significantly whiter in as little as 45 minutes.
Professional Zoom! teeth whitening is the perfect solution if you want fast, effective teeth whitening. Some people choose the one-hour Zoom! teeth whitening when they have a special occasion, such as a job interview, a date, or a party. Others just love how their teeth look when they’re whiter and brighter, and schedule their professional teeth whitening to follow their hygiene appointment.
Take-Home Zoom! Teeth Whitening
Another option for teeth whitening is the take-home Zoom! teeth whitening kit. One of our team members will create custom-made trays for you to take home. You simply fill the trays with the Zoom! teeth whitening agent and wear the trays for up to four hours a night. Most people see teeth whitening results in just a few days. For optimal results, use the Zoom! teeth whitening trays every night for two weeks.
Both types of Zoom! teeth whitening can provide dramatic results, with little-to-no tooth sensitivity. These teeth whitening methods have helped millions of people have a whiter, brighter smile.
