Zoom Q & A

Why do teeth yellow?

Most often, teeth yellow because of the different substances that you eat and drink. Some of the food and drink most well-known for staining teeth include:

  • Red wine
  • Coffee and tea
  • Cigarettes and tobacco
  • Dark-colored food like berries or soy sauce

Some medications also stain your teeth.

As you get older, stains tend to become more prominent. This is because, as you age, you lose tooth enamel, and the layer of yellow dentin below shows through more. In addition, with less protection, it’s easier for teeth to stain.

The longer you allow stains to sit on your teeth, the more opportunity they have to sink deeper into your enamel, where they’re harder to remove.

How can Zoom whiten my teeth?

The team at Popper Dental whitens your teeth using Zoom in-office whitening. During one session, you can lighten your teeth by up to eight shades.* 

To begin the in-office procedure, your provider covers your gums and lips so that they avoid exposure to the whitening solution. Then, they apply a hydrogen peroxide whitening gel directly to your upper and lower teeth.

Next, your provider points a bright light at your teeth. It interacts with the hydrogen peroxide solution and lightens your teeth.

Your provider breaks your treatment up into three 15 minute segments. After your third treatment, they apply a post-treatment gel that reduces sensitivity, and you can go home.

Can I whiten my teeth at home?

If you’d prefer to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home, Popper Dental offers take-home trays. If you’d like take-home trays, your provider schedules you for a visit during which they take tooth molds.

Then, they make customized whitening trays for you to use with a whitening solution at home. Typically, you can whiten your teeth this way in about seven days.

Is Zoom teeth whitening safe?

Popper Dental offers you a 100% safe in-office Zoom teeth whitening experience, and when you follow instructions, at-home whitening is completely safe as well.

However, because Zoom whitening contains bleaching agents, your gums and/or teeth may be temporarily sensitive after you complete your treatment. 

If discolored teeth are holding you and your smile back, take action. Learn about Zoom whitening by scheduling a consultation at Popper Dental online or over the phone today.
