Teeth Whitening Q & A

What causes discolored teeth?

Many foods and beverages can stain your teeth. Tea, coffee, and red wine are common culprits. Tobacco use and poor dental hygiene can also cause dark and dingy teeth. 

Some people may also have discolored teeth even if they brush and floss daily. Factors like genetics and advancing age are sometimes to blame for stained teeth, and some prescription medications can play a role as well.

Regardless of the cause, professional teeth whitening can help brighten your smile. At Peter Gambertoglio, DDS, you can receive both take-home and in-office whitening treatments.  Zoom!® treatments lighten your teeth up to 16 shades in just one appointment.

How does teeth whitening work?

Professional-grade whitening treatments break up the stains on the surface of your teeth. In his practice, Dr. Gambertoglio uses Zoom! whitening to get dramatic results. Zoom! is fast and simple, and it transforms your smile in only one visit.

Zoom! whitening uses a special hydrogen peroxide gel. When exposed to an LED light, the gel penetrates your teeth to dissolve stains. After your treatment, Dr. Gambertoglio rinses your teeth with a fluoride solution. This step helps protect tooth enamel and prevent sensitivity. 

Take-home Zoom! whitening kits work similarly. Each kit uses customized whitening trays that fit over your teeth. Your kit also includes Zoom! whitening gel, which you place inside each tray. You can expect to wear your trays for 30 minutes each day, for up to two weeks. 

What results can I expect?

Patients who choose in-office treatments can dramatically whiten their teeth in less than an hour. But if you prefer at-home whitening, your treatment may take a bit longer. Full results generally appear within 14 days.

No matter which method you choose, you may need to use an at-home kit for occasional touch-ups.  Dr. Gambertoglio can provide more instructions about this process. He and his staff can offer advice on which techniques give the best results. They're also happy to provide additional gel or duplicate trays.
