Teeth Whitening Q & A

What are the causes of yellow and gray teeth?

Many factors contribute to teeth yellowing and graying. Certain medications, age, and the things you drink and eat can all contribute. Beverages like red wine, coffee, tea, soda, and juices can leave surface stains on the enamel of your teeth and turn your teeth yellow. Major culprits also include smoking and tobacco. Teeth will naturally darken a shade every 2 years.

Over time, these surface stains can reach beneath the enamel of your tooth to its dentin, which makes the stain even harder to get out.

Is whitening your teeth safe?

Certainly. Teeth whitening is not harmful if you comply with product directions and guidelines. Dr. Roger Koslen provides Zoom® and Opalescence Go® whitening treatments for safe, satisfying results. You can get your teeth whitened in just one appointment or gradually with a take-home teeth whitening kit.

Note that the bleaching agents may cause some non-permanent gum and tooth sensitivity, but this is the only discomfort you might feel.

What is the Zoom® in-office procedure like?

A simple Zoom® in-office teeth-whitening procedure could make your teeth up to eight shades brighter after just one appointment.* During your visit, Dr. Koslen will protect your gums from the whitening agent either hydrogen peroxide for yellow and brown teeth or carbamide peroxide for gray teeth. For full effects with gray teeth whitening Zoom® whitening will need to be continued at home.

Dr. Koslen will then carefully apply the Zoom® whitening gel to your teeth. The solution penetrates your enamel to reach discolored molecules, breaking the bonds that hold them together. This process breaks up the concentration of discoloration and stains, leaving you with a brighter, whiter smile in less than an hour. In-office whitenings are ideal if your smile needs a quick fix, such as for a special event coming up.

Dr. Koslen can also provide take-home teeth-whitening kits for a less immediate approach to whitening teeth over a couple of weeks.
