Teeth Whitening Q&A
What causes tooth discoloration?
Various factors can contribute to tooth discoloration. For instance, the natural aging process, tobacco use, coffee, tea, and certain medications can all cause yellowed teeth and a dull smile.
Is teeth whitening right for me?
If you have discoloration deep within your teeth, veneers or crowns may be a better alternative. But surface stains are treatable with professional teeth whitening treatments at Metairie Village Dentistry. Dr. Wyatt can help you determine the most effective treatment plan for you and your teeth.
Why should I have my teeth whitened by a professional?
When it comes to teeth whitening, patients can choose between over-the-counter products or their dentist for professional-grade whitening treatments.
Store-bought whitening systems may offer only temporary results, and they aren't safely guided by a dental professional. But at Metairie Village Dentistry, Dr. Wyatt and her team use whitening products that are safer and more effective than over-the-counter alternatives.
Their professional whitening treatments are comfortable, and they reduce your risk of tooth sensitivity or gum irritation. The team at Metairie Village Dentistry gives patients the convenience of choosing between a single in-office treatment session or an at-home whitening kit with customized trays.
Regardless of the method you choose, whitening can lighten your smile by several shades.
What is Zoom!® teeth whitening?
Zoom teeth whitening treatment is an in-office bleaching procedure that takes about an hour.
After making sure the staining will respond to a whitening treatment, your provider will place a lip guard in your mouth and apply a hydrogen peroxide-based gel to your teeth. Then they’ll direct a special light at your teeth, activating the gel to lift stains from your tooth enamel.
When your treatment is complete, they’ll remove the gel and send you home with noticeably brighter and whiter teeth.
What is Power whitening?
At Metairie Village Dentistry, you not only have access to Zoom teeth whitening, but you also have access to Power whitening. Power whitening uses a whitening gel and state-of-the-art laser energy to whiten your teeth.
