Teeth Whitening Q&A

Teeth Whitening

Why have my teeth changed color over the years?

Many factors can contribute to tooth discoloration, but age is the primary culprit for most people. Over the years, some of the thin, white layer of tooth enamel naturally wears away. 

This leaves more of the underlying layer of dentin visible. Dentin is naturally yellow in color, which is why many people notice their teeth shifting to a more yellow shade over the years. 

Additional causes of tooth discoloration include:

  • Tobacco use
  • Foods like berries, potatoes, wine, and coffee
  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Certain medical conditions and medications
  • Exposure to high levels of fluoride
  • Traumatic injury

If you feel that your smile isn’t as bright as it could be, teeth whitening is an excellent option. 

How does professional teeth whitening work?

Smile Studio of Buford is proud to offer the Philips Zoom!® professional teeth whitening system. This option creates beautiful results with just one visit, and because the service is provided by dental professionals, you can rest assured that your dental health remains the top priority. 

Zoom! can brighten your teeth up to four shades in under an hour. You relax in the treatment chair as your teeth are prepped for treatment. 

A thin layer of whitening gel is applied, and a special LED light activates the whitening gel. This process takes around 15 minutes, and it’s repeated three times during your visit. 

The entire process is safe, comfortable, and effective; you walk out with a smile you’re eager to share with the world. 

Are there professional at-home whitening options?

If you’d prefer to whiten your teeth at home and on your own schedule, Smile Studio of Buford also offers a take-home whitening system. 

This option uses a tray-based approach to whiten your teeth. You simply apply a thin line of the professional-strength whitening gel to each tray, which then fits snugly over the surface of your teeth. 

The Smile Studio of Buford provides instructions on how long to wear your trays, as well as tips to make at-home whitening as easy as possible. This option does take more time than in-office whitening, but it allows you to control the shade of your smile and perform whitening whenever you feel like your teeth need a brightening boost.
