Why Do Teeth Darken?
Your teeth may start to appear dingy or dark for a number of reasons, and it’s not only caused by what you eat -- though your diet does play a major factor in the shade of your smile. Foods like dark, ripe berries, pasta sauce, and dark vinegar cling to tooth enamel and lead to gradual darkening. Beverages like coffee, tea, and dark sodas may alter the shade of teeth even faster.
Other factors affecting the shade of a smile include:
- Certain medications (especially tetracycline)
- Tobacco use
- Too much fluoride exposure during childhood
- Poor dental hygiene
Why Choose Professional Whitening?
We know there are a number of whitening options available over-the-counter. When it comes to your unique smile, however, it’s always a good idea to trust the professionals who know what’s best for teeth. The differences between professional teeth whitening and what you can pick up at the pharmacy are sizeable -- let’s take a look at a few of the most apparent.

How Does Zoom! Whitening Work?
When you choose professional in-office teeth whitening, you’ll benefit from the fastest results possible. Zoom! Whitening combines a special bleaching gel with a low-heat UV light to brighten tooth enamel in three, 15-minute intervals. That means you can have the bright smile you’ve been hoping for in just about 45 minutes!
So how does Zoom! work? First, we’ll cover your gums, lips, tongue, and cheeks with a protective shield. Then each of your teeth will be covered with the bleaching solution, which will penetrate the tooth enamel and dentin once activated by the UV light. After three applications of the light, we’ll apply an enamel-strengthening fluoride treatment to complete your whitening.
Making Sure Your Results Last
After you’ve received the fabulous results possible only with Zoom! Whitening, we know you’ll want to make sure they last as long as possible. You should continue to brush, floss, and visit the dentist regularly to maintain your healthy, beautiful smile. If discoloration does occur in the months following your treatment, simply use the convenient touch-up kit that comes with every Zoom! Whitening treatment to refresh your white smile.
