Help! My Teeth Are Yellow

Help! My Teeth Are Yellow

Yellow is not a good color for teeth. But you don’t have to live with a yellow or stained smile. Professional teeth whitening can restore, whiten, and brighten your teeth.

At Brite Dental Spa,  in New York City we know that brushing alone can’t turn yellow teeth into pearly whites. And that’s why we offer professional teeth whitening, which can help transform your yellow smile into a Hollywood smile. Here’s how.

Discoloration explained

Teeth become yellow, gray, or brown for many reasons.

Drinking colored beverages, like coffee, tea, and wine, is the chief reason your teeth can become discolored. Just like these beverages can stain your clothes, they can also stain your teeth when you drink them regularly. 

Here are some other activities that can dull your smile.

Age, also, is a common reason teeth turn yellow. That’s because the top layer of tooth enamel thins over time, revealing your teeth’s dentin, the yellow layer beneath the enamel. 

What you should know about teeth whitening

Many teeth whitening solutions exist, from whitening toothpaste and whitening strips to mass-produced whitening trays. Most whitening products use a bleaching solution to whiten your teeth’s outermost layer.

You should contact us or your dentist before trying any whitening product. That’s because you must address any underlying dental issues, like cavities or gum disease, before starting a teeth whitening treatment. Also, be aware that not all products work on all types of tooth discoloration.

To get the safest and most reliable results, we recommend professional teeth whitening with Zoom. Zoom permeates your enamel to bleach away deep discoloration and make your teeth up to eight shades lighter. Also, Zoom provides natural-looking results.

Benefits of Zoom

In only two visits, you can get brighter and whiter teeth with Zoom. 

During your first appointment, we perform a comprehensive exam to check for underlying dental issues. We then take an impression of your teeth to make custom-molded bleaching trays that hold the bleaching solution, which is typically stronger than over-the-counter whitening products.

During your second visit, we test the fit of your bleaching trays and provide instructions on your professional home-bleaching program. You’ll wear your bleaching trays twice a day for 30 minutes or use them overnight. Depending on your goals and the level of staining, it can take a few weeks of daily treatments to achieve the best results. 

If you want whiter teeth and a more dazzling smile, contact our team at Brite Dental Spa in New York City. To schedule an appointment, call 602-903-2836, or use our online booking tool.
