Did You Know?
Enamel is porous, meaning that it absorbs colored pigments. This means that your teeth will naturally become stained as a result of consuming certain foods and beverages. Lifestyle and oral hygiene habits can also affect stains on your teeth as well.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Am I a candidate for professional teeth whitening?
You may be a candidate for professional teeth whitening if you have dull and/or stained teeth and are looking for a way to whiten your teeth by removing old stains. Professional teeth whitening procedures are generally highly effective against stains caused by pigmented foods and beverages, however they may not be as effective on other types of stains. Additionally, to be an ideal candidate for whitening, your teeth will need to be free from decay.
What can I expect when receiving Zoom! Whitening treatments from Dr. Guirguis?
When receiving Zoom! Whitening treatments from Dr. Guirguis, you can expect a painless and quick procedure. First, Dr. Guirguis will isolate your teeth in order to protect your lips and gums. Then the whitening gel will be applied to the surface of your teeth and activated using a special light. This whitening gel is a scientifically formulated, pH balanced hydrogen peroxide gel that removes deep stains and discolorations from the teeth. The gel will remain on your teeth for about an hour before being rinsed. The final result is teeth that are dramatically brighter than before.
Will I need to follow any special instructions after having my teeth whitened?
After having your teeth whitened, it is recommended to avoid highly pigmented foods and beverages for at least 24 hours. This is because the whitening gel will continue to work for about 24 hours after its initial application. For this reason, you will not see your final results until the day after your whitening treatment. You can maintain your results by practicing good oral hygiene and limiting your consumption of pigmented foods and beverages. Dr. Guirguis may also recommend at home touch-up treatments to help maintain your results.
