What is teeth whitening?
teeth whitening is a bleaching process that lightens discoloration of enamel and dentin restoring teeth to its normal healthy natural color.
What Causes Tooth Discoloration?
Teeth become discolored for different reasons:
Frequently drinking coffee, tea, or colas.
Some antibiotics may darken developing teeth in children.
Aging - The dentin underneath the enamel of a tooth gradually darkens with age.
Use of tobacco products.
How is it done?
At our office we use the zoom advanced power laser whitening system. This product will make your teeth 3-7 shades lighter in less than one hour while you listen to your favourite music or watch your favourite movie. The procedure takes approximately one hour.
- Will additional whitening be necessary?
If needed dr. mahmoud will provide you with a system for follow-up treatment that you can use at home for the next couple of days as your teeth continue whitening and eventually stabilize to their final color.
- How long do the results last?
By following some simple post whitening care instructions, your teeth will always be lighter than they were before. To keep your teeth looking their best, we recommend flossing, brushing twice daily especially after consuming staining food and beverages.
- Are there any side effects?
Sensitivity during the treatment may occur with some patients. On rare occasions, minor tingling sensations are experienced immediately after the procedure, but always dissipate
