Read below to discover how we can help you achieve your smile goals in our office or in the comfort of your own home.
Causes of 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.
The Teeth Whitening Procedure
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.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does ZOOM! Teeth Whitening hurt?
ZOOM! Teeth Whitening is virtually painless and most patients won’t feel any pain during their treatment. Before Dr. Bingham performs your procedure, he’ll protect your gums and apply local anesthetic to numb your teeth and ensure you don’t feel any discomfort. While you may experience some sensitivity after your teeth whitening treatment, this will quickly subside on its own.
Is ZOOM! Teeth Whitening safe?
As long as a qualified cosmetic dentist like Dr. Bingham is conducting your teeth whitening, the procedure is safe. When you visit our Nampa, ID practice for an in-office teeth whitening appointment, our experienced team will ensure that you’re safe and comfortable over the course of your treatment. In as little as one hour, we can deliver the stunning results that you’d expect from ZOOM! teeth whitening.
How long does teeth whitening treatment last?
Teeth whitening isn’t permanent, but the results can last longer depending on how you care for your teeth. Some patients will have new stains in just 6 months, while others can go for several years before they need another whitening appointment. After your in-office teeth whitening session is finished, we’ll provide you with a take-home kit that will allow you to preserve your smile.
Will insurance pay for professional teeth whitening?
Most dental insurance companies won’t cover teeth whitening treatment since it’s considered a cosmetic procedure. However, you may be able to get a portion of your procedure covered depending on your exact plan. Our office recommends that you contact your provider to get an accurate understanding of your coverage. If you have any questions about your insurance benefits, our team will be happy to assist you.
