Benefits of Smile Whitening
Throughout the years, drinking coffee or tea on a daily basis can add to the inevitable increase in stained teeth, causing people to become self-conscious, smile less, and even look older.
In addition to these factors, other common causes of tooth staining include:
- Wear & Tear
- Tobacco Use
- Certain medications, including antibiotics
- Dark-colored food and beverages
Drugstore whitening kits can be less effective and actually damage your gums if applied incorrectly. An expert cosmetic teeth whitening dentist, like Dr. Broome, will always monitor treatments to ensure they are performed correctly. At our Charlotte dental practice, you’ll have a luxurious experience as you relax in our comfortable office with access to many of our spa treatments, such as a paraffin hand treatment while relaxing in a massage chair. ncbi.nlm.nih.gov talks about how safe and effective teeth whitening treatment is with a cosmetic dentist.

Frequently Asked Questions about Teeth Whitening
Q: Is teeth whitening safe?
A: Yes! The process is very safe when performed under the supervision of a dentist.
Q: Is the teeth whitening process painful?
A: The procedure is not supposed to be painful, though tooth and gum sensitivity may occur. If you already have sensitive gums/teeth or feel as though sensitivity will be a problem, inform the dentist and you can choose the method that suits your teeth and gums best.
Q: Can I whiten my teeth myself?
A:Whitening products that you purchase over the counter won’t provide the same dramatic, consistent results that professional whitening can provide. Also, certain whitening products can increase tooth sensitivity and pain. The treatment should be performed under the supervision of a dentist who specializes in teeth whitening.
Q: How long do the results last?
A:On average, you’ll have whiter teeth for the next six to nine months, though results depend on your teeth and upkeep after the procedure.
Q: Is Zoom!® teeth whitening affordable?
A: Yes! Dr. Broome has a competitive package of affordable professional teeth whitening options.
Q: How can I maintain my teeth whitening results?
A: After your teeth whitening treatment, it’s important to avoid dark-colored food or beverages. If you do eat or drink stain-causing foods, it’s important to rinse out your mouth immediately after. In addition, brushing twice-a-day, flossing, and maintaining regular check-ups and cleanings with your dentist can help reduce unsightly discoloration.
Q: Will teeth whitening work on bridges or dental restorations?
A: Teeth whitening will not brighten existing dental restorations including veneers, crowns, fillings, bonding or bridges. It is possible to customize whitening treatments to match existing or new restorations.
