Teeth Whitening Q&A



What causes tooth discoloration?

Enamel is a hard substance that makes up the outer protective layer of your teeth. The enamel protects the dentin, a softer substance of teeth. Throughout your life, discoloration and staining can affect the enamel, dentin, or both, leaving you with a smile that might make you feel less than your best.

The most common type of discoloration affects the enamel. Darkly-colored foods and beverages like coffee, tea, and red wine slowly discolor enamel over time. Smoking cigarettes can make enamel yellowish.

Aging can also lead to tooth discoloration. Enamel naturally wears down over the years, which allows the yellow-colored dentin to show through. Certain antibiotic medications or tooth trauma may also discolor dentin, making teeth appear bluish.

How does teeth whitening work?

Discoloration is common, and that’s why teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments available. Professional whitening treatments at Greenwich Dentistry lift stains from enamel to whiten your smile.

Teeth whitening treatments generally use peroxide-based bleaching solutions to erase the stains that food and beverages leave behind. In-office whitening is a customizable treatment, and the dentists work with you to select a target shade that looks beautiful and natural.

Many people are familiar with at-home whitening kits sold in drugstores, but these kits don’t deliver the same results as in-office whitening. The whitening treatments you’ll find at Greenwich Dentistry use safe, powerful whitening agents to give you a dramatically brighter smile.

What can I expect with Zoom whitening treatment?

Greenwich Dentistry is proud to use Philips Zoom whitening technology to give adults of all ages whiter smiles. If you’re interested in teeth whitening, your dentist can help you decide if this popular cosmetic treatment is right for your teeth and your aesthetic goals.

Zoom whitening takes less than two hours in the office, and you’ll leave with a noticeably brighter smile. The safe, effective bleaching solution combined with LED light technology is capable of brightening teeth up to eight shades in just one session.
