Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you. People want to look their best and display a bright smile, especially on special occasions such as weddings and graduations. But over time, your teeth can become dingy or yellow even if you practice effective home care by brushing and flossing every day. That’s why Dr. Cederbaum features professional take-home and in-office treatments to whiten your smile.
What Causes Teeth to Yellow?
It’s commonly believed that stained or discolored teeth are entirely due to poor oral hygiene, which simply isn’t true. Practicing effective home care and visiting Dr. Cederbaum for regular checkups are both essential habits for maintaining a healthy smile, but there are a number of additional factors that can play a role in causing a patient’s teeth to yellow.
Diet is a major factor when it comes yellowing or dingy teeth. Common foods and drinks such as coffee, tea, wine, and berries are known to stain teeth. The discoloration of a patient’s smile can also be a side effect of using certain types of prescription medication. Yellowing teeth may also occur as a natural part of the aging process. Physical trauma and smoking are two additional issues that can cause teeth to yellow.
Take-Home and In-Office Treatments
For your convenience, Dr. Cederbaum offers both in-office and take-home tooth whitening treatments which provide superior results to any available over-the-counter products. Over-the-counter treatments can also lead to uneven whitening and expose your gums to whitening compound, which can cause irritation and other issues.
In-office Treatment from Sinsational Smile
This fast and painless treatment removes surface stains on teeth, veneers, and all restorations.
With Sinsational Smile, the gel stays cool and there’s no burning. This 20-minute treatment uses trays to apply the whitening gel. Then we use a blue LED light to activate the carbon dioxide which bubbles away the stains on your smile.
In-Office Treatment from Zoom
Your teeth can be up to 8 shades whiter after a single whitening treatment from Zoom. This treatment is provided in our office and it typically takes about 45 minutes. Here’s how it works: After you consult with our dentist, we arrange your Zoom whitening session. We use customized trays to protect your gums while the peroxide-based gel coats your teeth. Then a low-heat laser is used to allow oxygen to break down the stains on your teeth, but Zoom leaves the structure of your teeth intact. Over ten million people have experienced phenomenal whitening results with Zoom.
Take-Home Whitening Trays
Dr. Cederbaum knows that you’re busy and it’s not always easy to fit a smile-whitening session into your busy schedule. That’s why we offer the convenience of take-home teeth-whitening kits. Our custom-made whitening trays are easy to use. We create an impression of your teeth to make sure you get the right fit, ensuring the highest level of comfort and safety. We’ll show you how to use the professional grade gel and also provide you with detailed written treatment instructions. In about a week, your smile will be noticeably brighter.
