Why Do Teeth Get Discolored?
Before we dive into the details of the whitening session, let’s take a look at why teeth might lose their shine:
- Coffee & Tea: Those morning boosts can leave behind dulling stains.
- Red Wine: Wine can carry tannins that darken our teeth after a while.
- Tobacco: It’s not just bad for your health, it’s a major smile-dimmer.
- Age: As enamel thins over time, the yellower dentin underneath can show through.
Is Teeth Whitening Safe?
When done right! Dr. Jonah Tabrizi always ensures treatments are both effective and safe. Just remember, professional guidance is key; some whitening “hacks” that fill social media can be unsafe for your mouth!
Teeth Whitening Options
There’s a myriad of products and services out there, but let’s hone in on what really works.
Professional Teeth Whitening
The most effective method of teeth whitening!
- In-Office: Think fast results with products like the Zoom whitening system, bringing noticeable change in just one session.
- Dentist-Supervised: Beyond being safe, having a professional by your side guarantees an even, stunning result.
Take-Home Whitening Kits
If you’d rather whiten your teeth at home, we offer kits that can do the job with our guidance.
- Custom Trays: These are designed to fit your teeth perfectly.
- Whitening Pens & Strips: Handy for touch-ups, especially when you’re on the go.
- Dentist-Recommended: Always choose kits recommended by your dentist for both safety and effectiveness.
DIY Teeth Whitening Remedies (and Why to Avoid Them)
As tempting as they might be, the flood of DIY teeth whitening methods on social media can actually cause permanent damage to your teeth. Ingredients like baking soda, fruit-based scrubs, and even activated charcoal might sound more natural or more affordable, but they’re also incredibly harmful. Such abrasive ingredients wear away your enamel, and can quickly become sensitive to heat and cold. Trust the pros, like Dr. Jonah Tabrizi, to guide your teeth whitening journey.
Teeth Whitening FAQs
How long will my results last?
Most patients report that their whitening results last about a full year. If you regularly drink coffee, tea, wine, smoke, or use certain medications, then your results might not last quite as long. Lifestyle can create variance.
Will it damage my teeth?
Not with a professional like Dr. Jonah Tabrizi in charge! Our trained staff uses proven methods, like the Zoom whitening system, and are well-practiced. Professional teeth whitening is safe, effective, and routine. The only risk for damage comes from DIY whitening trends. Beware of the methods you find online!
