Teeth Whitening Q & A

What are the benefits of in-office teeth whitening?

Whitening your teeth has multiple benefits, yet the most obvious one is feeling more confident in your newly improved, whiter, and brighter smile.  

Having your teeth professional whitening is popular for the following reasons:

  • Your teeth become several shades whiter after an hour
  • Can be customized to achieve a precise amount of whiteness
  • It’s stronger and more thorough than using over-the-counter products

Don’t settle for anything less than the best teeth whitening solution available at Dr. Corry Lanyon, DDS.

How does Zoom teeth whitening work? 

The team at Dr. Corry Lanyon, DDS, offers a convenient, quick, and effective in-office teeth whitening solution called Zoom. Prior to beginning the whitening treatment, the dental staff cleans and polishes your teeth to get rid of plaque and tartar stains. 

To begin the whitening, the dental team applies a protective gel over your gums and lips to avoid irritation. Next, they apply the whitening solution on your teeth and use a special laser designed to activate the solution. The whole procedure including the cleaning takes roughly 90 minutes.

What causes tooth discoloration? 

Tooth discoloration occurs due to a variety of reasons, including:

  • Frequent tobacco use
  • Inadequate brushing and flossing
  • Foods such as tomato sauce
  • Drinks such as coffee and wines

By brushing your teeth at least twice a day along with flossing and using mouthwash, you can help prevent your teeth from staining. It’s also important for you to come to Dr. Corry Lanyon, DDS, so the dental team can provide you with semi-annual dental exams and cleanings.

Is teeth whitening safe? 

The dental team at Dr. Corry Lanyon, DDS, uses the FDA approved teeth whitening treatment Zoom. It’s safe and doesn’t have any long-term side effects. After your teeth whitening treatment, you may experience slightly irritated gums or tooth sensitivity. These symptoms should subside within a few hours.

 By using Zoom to whiten your teeth, you can achieve a bright sparkling smile in less than one hour. Call the team at the office of Dr. Corry Lanyon, DDS, today or schedule your appointment online.
