What Causes Stained Teeth?
There are many different factors that can lead to stained teeth. Some of the most common are:
- Inadequate Oral Hygiene — The most common cause of stained teeth is a lack of oral hygiene. Make sure to brush and floss daily, as well as visit Dr. Bingham for biannual checkups.
- Tobacco — Smoking or chewing tobacco often causes teeth to appear yellow as a result of nicotine stains.
- Certain Foods and Beverages — Many popular drinks are known to stain teeth, including coffee, tea, red wine, and soda. Certain foods may stain your teeth as well, such as berries, pomegranates, and curry.
- Some Medications — Antibiotics like tetracycline or doxycycline may leave stains on your teeth.
- Aging — Your teeth will inevitably lose some of their natural whiteness as you get older. Stains may also appear in parts of your teeth where the enamel has worn down.
Is Teeth Whitening Safe?
As long as you visit a qualified cosmetic dentist for teeth whitening, the procedure is completely safe. Over-the-counter whitening gels are often unreliable and inconsistent, but whitening products provided through your dentist can be trusted.
When you visit our Nampa, ID practice for an in-office teeth whitening session, Dr. Bingham will ensure your comfort and safety throughout the procedure. In as little as an hour, we can deliver the stunning results you expect.
Does Teeth Whitening Hurt?
We understand that some patients have sensitive teeth and are concerned that the bleaching gel will hurt. Rest assured, this isn’t the case, as most patients report no discomfort at all during treatment. Before applying the bleaching gel, Dr. Bingham will administer a local anesthetic to numb your teeth and ensure you don’t feel any pain.
How The Procedure Works
ZOOM! Teeth Whitening lives up to its name, providing you with a brand-new smile in just one quick appointment. For most patients, we can achieve the desired results in an hour or less. This unmatched speed is possible because of the powerful bleaching gel that’s more concentrated than over-the-counter products.
After Dr. Bingham applies the gel to your teeth, he’ll shine a special light on them to activate the ingredients and accelerate the whitening process. The powerful bleaching agent will remove stains and discoloration from deep inside your tooth enamel, brightening your smile by several shades in an hour or less.
Will Insurance Pay For My Teeth Whitening Procedure?
Since teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure, most dental insurance plans won’t cover it. However, you may be able to get a portion of your treatment cost covered depending on the terms of your plan. The amount of payment you receive will vary depending on your provider. If you have any questions about your insurance benefits, our team will be happy to assist you.
How Long Does Teeth Whitening Last?
Teeth whitening isn’t a permanent procedure and how long the results last can vary significantly. Some patients will have new stains in just 6 months, while others may be able to go several years before they need another whitening treatment.
After your teeth whitening session is finished, we’ll provide you with a take-home kit that will allow you to preserve your new smile. By touching up your teeth as needed in the comfort of your own home, you can ensure that your beautiful new smile will last for many years to come.
