Teeth Whitening Q&A

Who benefits from teeth whitening?

Your teeth become discolored for several reasons. Aging, smoking, and consuming food and beverages like coffee, tomato sauce, black tea, red wine, and colored soda all cause yellowing. Diseases and certain medications can also cause yellowing. Aging can cause yellow teeth due to the natural wearing of the outer layer of enamel. 

If you have poor dental hygiene habits, the resulting plaque buildup discolors your teeth. 

Other causes of tooth discoloration include: 

  • Genetics
  • Disease
  • Certain medications
  • Trauma that disrupts the enamel formation

Brighter teeth are possible. Teeth whitening trays can help if aging, smoking, or dietary choices are to blame for your dull teeth. If you have discoloration due to trauma, disease, or medications, other cosmetic interventions like crowns or veneers may be needed to get you the bright smile you desire. 

Dr. Brown can help you determine what whitening treatment works best for your teeth.

Why should I choose professional teeth whitening?

Although many over-the-counter whitening solutions, pastes, and gels are available, none of these has the power and effectiveness of professional solutions. 

Dean L Brown, DDS, offers Philips Zoom!® take-home tooth whitening kits* that get you results in just 1-2 weeks. You can use over-the-counter products for months and not get the same brighter smile. 

Professional take-home kits fit your mouth precisely, so they aren’t messy or uncomfortable. Your provider customizes whitening to a shade that’s right for you and is less likely to cause tooth sensitivity. 

What is involved in take-home teeth whitening?

Professional teeth whitening starts with a consultation at Dean L Brown, DDS. Dr. Brown determines if Philips Zoom is the best option for you.

If it is, the staff makes customized trays that fit perfectly to your teeth and gum line, ensuring safe and effective results. The trays are filled with a whitening gel so they coat your teeth properly when worn. You wear the trays for about 30 minutes a day for a week or two to get your desired results.
