  1. I take great care of my teeth: why are they discolored?
    Discoloration of tooth enamel is caused by many factors. Most commonly, it is due to the consumption of staining beverages such as coffee, tea, cola, or red wine. Smoking also leads to a particularly unsightly, often uneven, discoloration of the teeth. But teeth can also be discolored by some medications, most notably tetracycline, and, of course, our genetics play a big role. Some people have brighter and whiter enamel than others.
  2. Is professional tooth whitening that much better than over-the-counter remedies?
    Zoom! tooth whitening is not only incredibly fast, but it's far more effective than over-the-counter remedies, even after a year or more of use. The trays supplied with tooth whitening agents are a poor fit for your teeth, meaning that the whitening gel doesn't contact your teeth the way it should to achieve best results.
  3. How white can my teeth become?
    As discoloration is determined by many factors, so too is whitening. It's impossible to know just how deeply imbedded is the discoloration, not to mention how white your tooth enamel is to begin with. For some individuals, tooth whitening may not be the best option. To achieve optimal results, you may want to consider Porcelain Veneers.
  4. How long will tooth whitening last?
    This depends on your lifestyle. Coffee and wine drinkers and smokers will find shorter-lasting results than other people. But with proper care such as brushing and flossing and regular check-ups, the whiteness of your teeth can last for years.
