Dull and Dingy Smiles
Sometimes, it’s hard to admit to having a dull or dingy-looking smile. But there are plenty of reasons why Virginia Beach patients may have stained teeth. Enamel is very porous and absorbs pigments from food, drink, and nicotine. In addition, the natural aging process wears away your enamel, revealing the yellowish dental layer beneath. Your smile might look less than white because you:
- Took tetracycline antibiotics or iron supplements
- Have decayed teeth or leaking silver fillings
- Injured your tooth
- Inherited the color of your teeth
- Ingested excessive fluoride
- Drink a lot of coffee, wine, or dark-colored sodas
- Eat a lot of curry, chocolate, blueberries or other pigmented foods
Whitening Your Teeth
When you arrive for your Zoom! teeth whitening appointment at our Virginia Beach office, our cosmetic dentists examine your teeth and gums to ensure the treatment will benefit your smile. Zoom! teeth whitening is considered very safe and effective. However, there are some dental considerations. For example:
- Do you have any crowns, fillings, bonding, or veneers? Restorations are color-matched to your enamel, and won’t respond to any whitening treatments.
- Do you have dental decay? Decay must be treated before we can whiten your enamel.
- Do you have exposed tooth roots? If your tooth roots are exposed, the teeth whitening process may cause irritation or discomfort.
- Do you have any form of gum disease? Gum disease can cause swelling, tenderness, and irritation. Adding teeth whitening gel to an unhealthy mouth may cause more harm than good.
- Are you teeth in good general health? Patients with good teeth and good oral health will benefit the most from Zoom! teeth whitening.
