Ever catch yourself looking at your smile in the mirror and wondering, “Where do they come from?” Not your teeth, of course—you’re talking about the stains on your teeth. Where do they come from, and more importantly, what can you do about them?
There are four main reasons for why teeth can become stained:
- Tobacco use
Some of these factors obviously can’t be controlled. No one’s figured out how to the aging process, and a medication that causes stains may also be important for your health.
Foods/beverages and even tobacco smoking, on the other hand, are much manageable. Giving up on cigarettes may not be easy, but with help it’s doable. Likewise, you may need that cup of coffee to wake up in the morning, but do you need that second cup a few hours later, or that third cup after dinner? Cutting down on dark-colored foods and beverages can do a lot to help you protect your teeth from stains.
But avoiding some of the top causes of stains won’t actually make your stains go away. That’s where Zoom! Whitening and Dr. Polansky’s Cherry Hill office comes in. Zoom! Whitening is one of the leading professional teeth-whitening systems on the market and works using a specially formulated gel activated by a low-heat light.
Here’s how the teeth whitening process works. When you come into our Cherry Hill office for your whitening session, Dr. Polansky will apply the Zoom! gel to your teeth and put them under a light. The whitening process will take about an hour. During that time, Zoom’s powerful gel will penetrate your enamel and go to work on your stains.
Once you’re whitening session is over, your smile will be as much as 10 shades brighter.
