Summer is here! Are you ready for a brighter, whiter smile?!
Curious about teeth whitening? We often get the following questions about whitening.
Is Professional teeth whitening safe?
Yes. Research has shown that when teeth are normal and healthy there are no apparent adverse effects on the tooth’s enamel.
What causes tooth discoloration?
Aging, smoking and the ingestion of dark pigmented food and drink such as coffee, tea, cola and red wine are the leading causes of tooth discoloration.
Are there any side effects?
A small percentage of people may experience slight tingling or cold sensitivity after treatment. Generally this subsides relatively quickly.
Does teeth whitening work for everyone?
Teeth whitening is not effective on individuals with stained teeth as a result of certain medications, decalcification, or those who were born with grayish teeth. It is not recommended for pregnant or nursing women, or children under 14.
Will teeth whitening affect my dental work?
Although it will not whiten crowns, fillings, veneers or other dental work, the process does not adversely affect these structures.
Here’s what some of our Stelzer Dental patient’s have said after completing Zoom whitening:
“I was so nervous to do Zoom teeth whitening but Dr. Stelzer put me at ease & Laura was so thorough & comforting, checking on me throughout the service making sure I was comfortable & doing OK. The women at the front desk were a joy to work with too. But most importantly I am THRILLED with the results! Everyone is complimenting my shiny white teeth & I feel great! Worth every penny!”
“I am so happy with my teeth whitening results. People keep commenting on how white my teeth look. It was an easy and fast experience and I am really happy I did it!”
“I have always wanted to try teeth whitening because I wanted quick results. I was so happy when Stelzer Dental started offering in office whitening. Friends and strangers have stopped me to comment on how good my teeth look.”
