Issues that lead to stains

Under the right conditions, a person’s teeth would remain naturally white throughout life. However, it takes effort on an individual’s part to prevent unattractive yellow and brown stains from appearing. Regular visits to the dentist’s office will help. During wellness checkups, the hygienist will clean and polish the patient’s teeth. At home, people should brush at least twice a day and should floss daily. Using an antiseptic mouthwash can also help keep teeth white.

In addition, there are things people can avoid or limit to minimize the chances of having discoloration on teeth. Some common products, including foods and beverages, that stain teeth include the following:

  • Wine
  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Soda
  • Tomato sauce
  • Curry
  • Tobacco

Products in the store

Teeth whitening is becoming more and more common as people emphasize this for their oral health and cosmetic needs. Zoom teeth whitening is not the only option available for individuals. Some people may first look to store-bought options. These come in the form of toothpaste products that have peroxide in them. Also, whitening strips are available in grocery stores and drugstores. These will not require as much of a financial commitment; however, they do not work as fast or last as long as Zoom and other in-office treatments.

Other dentist-prescribed teeth whitening

Dentists may offer different teeth-whitening solutions. Both in-office and at-home choices are available. Some treatments require that the patient comes into the office two or three times for one- or two-hour sessions. The dentist may also give the patient mouthguard-like trays and peroxide gel to take home. With these, the person can wear the appliances overnight for several weeks or months to achieve the desired color shade.

The Zoom teeth whitening difference

Patients will benefit from getting Zoom because of its effectiveness and convenience. Instead of visiting the dentist for multiple treatment rounds, Zoom is only required once. The procedure time can vary from patient to patient, but some people are in and out of the dentist’s office in as little as one hour. It should not take longer than two hours to finish the process.

Making the decision

Bleaching teeth is an important cosmetic choice. Having yellow and brown stains on a person’s teeth can hinder a smile and even affect self-esteem and self-image. Patients should consider all the available options before making a decision. The dentist can help the person by discussing the Zoom teeth whitening procedure, including what it entails, how effective it is and what side effects the person may experience. During this consultation, the dentist will review the person’s health history and may take X-rays of the patient’s mouth.


Most dentists prefer to clean the patient’s teeth before starting the Zoom teeth whitening process. After this, the dentist or the hygienist will get the patient ready for the treatment by getting the person comfortable. The dentist then covers the patient’s gums and lips, exposing only the teeth.

The whitening begins

The dentist will next place a peroxide gel solution on the patient’s teeth. A light will then help activate the chemical. The peroxide breaks down, and oxygen molecules enter the tooth and start to remove the stains. This part of the procedure usually takes about 30 to 45 minutes.

Feeling at ease

Some people may feel nervous or uncomfortable during the process. To pass the time and help ease the person’s mind, the dentist will allow the patient to listen to music on headphones. There may even be a television in the room so the person can watch a movie. People with a strong gag reflex should discuss their concerns with the dentist, as the process may be difficult for such patients.


The condition of every patient’s teeth is different, so results will vary. Still, most people see improvements of up to eight shades whiter with their teeth. The effects can last for years. Some patients see immediate improvements to the color of these teeth.

Helping the whitening along

Getting Zoom teeth whitening treatment can be effective, but people can improve the effects by practicing good oral hygiene. Patients should continue to brush at least twice a day and floss daily. Using an antiseptic mouthwash rinse regularly can also help maintain the whiteness of the person’s teeth. Limiting the amount of teeth-staining foods and beverages is also a good way to avoid future discoloration.

Other considerations

Dentists do not recommend that people under the age of 13 get Zoom teeth whitening. Otherwise, people of all ages can benefit from the procedure. Also, pregnant and nursing women should wait to do any teeth-whitening procedure. Patients who notice staining and discoloration after getting Zoom can return to the dentist’s office for additional treatment. The dentist will check on the patient’s progress in follow-up visits and regular wellness checkups.
