Zoom-whitening treatment was a great choice to achieve your white smile! Zoom-Whitening treatment is one of the most powerful whitening options available, with a guaranteed whiter smile in just one appointment. Now that you have achieved a brighter smile, you may be wondering, “How can I maintain white teeth?” 

At Weddington Family Dentistry, we want to share some of our favorite habits to help prevent tooth discoloration. To maintain your white smile, we recommend brushing your teeth after drinking any beverages that are likely to cause a stain. These beverages, such as coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and red wine, leave a layer of residue that coats the surface of your teeth and causes dark stains to set-in. To help prevent these stains from forming, you can drink from a straw, or carry a travel size toothbrush with you to clean your teeth immediately after. The longer the liquid sits on your teeth, the more set-in the stain will be. In addition to brushing, flossing will remove plaque between your teeth before it gets the chance to build up. If you do not remove the plaque, you may see stains start to form as outlines around each of your teeth. Plus, brushing and flossing your teeth daily will help improve your overall oral health!  

It is important to see your dentist every 6 months for regular cleanings, as your hygienist will remove surface stains that have had the chance to build up after since your Zoom Whitening treatment. If you notice that your teeth are becoming discolored faster than you expected, talk to your dentist about custom whitening trays. You will be provided with whitening gel to perform at home touch-ups to maintain your bright smile.

If you have any further questions about forming the best habits to maintain white teeth, please call us at 704-782-2630 and a member of our front desk team will be happy to help!

There are thousands of different teeth whitening options readily available for you today. Whether it be one of the over the counter solutions offered at the store down the street, or professional whitening treatment from your dentist’s office, it can seem overwhelming having to choose the best option on your own. At Weddington Family Dentistry, we partner with Phillips Zoom Whitening for the safety and long-lasting results our patients want and need out of their professional whitening treatment.

Today, over 10 million Americans have achieved their teeth whitening dreams by choosing Phillips Zoom Whitening treatment. It is actually the most frequently requested professional whitening brand in dental practices all across the United States! Our team trusts Zoom Whitening over other professional whitening treatments because of Phillips’ commitment to the safety and comfort of our patients, and the importance they place on good oral health.

Before we begin the Zoom Whitening process, we place a special protective cover across your gums so that the whitening gel is not able to seep into them. This will prevent that uncomfortable burning sensation you may have experienced with whitening strips that do not fit correctly, or do not stay in place on top of your teeth. Zoom’s whitening gel is also the only professional teeth whitening solution that uses ACP (amorphous calcium phosphate) as one of its main ingredients. ACP has been clinically proven to decrease tooth sensitivity, protect your enamel, and even improve the brightness and smoothness of your teeth’s surface.

If you are interested in receiving Phillips Zoom professional whitening treatment, call our front desk team today at 704-782-2630. Any member of our team will be happy to answer any further questions you may have, or help get you scheduled for your whitening consultation to determine which of the Zoom methods is right for you.

Have you noticed your teeth getting darker due to stains that have built up overtime? If you want fast results to get your teeth almost eight shades whiter than they are currently, Zoom Whitening may be your best solution. It only requires ONE appointment with us at Weddington Family Dentistry to achieve the bright, white smile you desire. We have gathered the information below to help you decide if Zoom whitening is the best whitening path for you.

Phillips Zoom is an in-office teeth whitening solution that will give you the results you desire in just one visit to our office in Concord, NC. We will begin the appointment by having one of our dental experts prep your mouth and gums for your professional whitening treatment. We offer two different variations of Zoom whitening, which we will help you pick based on your individual budget, time, and whitening goal. One method utilizes an LED lamp to accelerate the effects of the whitening gel, enhancing your coloring results. The other method simply applies a thin coating of whitening varnish to each of your teeth, which dries almost instantly, and will need to be brushed off after 30 minutes. With both professional whitening methods, we end your treatment with extra protection against tooth sensitivity and enamel damage to provide you with the highest level of comfort and safety.

Our patients who have undergone Zoom whitening treatment find that they have long-lasting, noticeable results that do not come with over-the-counter solutions you may be tempted to buy from any big-box store. With our professional supervision and Phillips Zoom’s advanced technology, we know that you will be smiling confidently again with shining, healthy looking teeth!

For fast, dramatic whitening results, Zoom whitening is a great choice! To read more in depth on Phillip’s Zoom technology visit their website today!

Ever look at a photo of yourself that was only taken a few years ago and ask yourself, “Huh, how did my smile look so much brighter back then?” We definitely do. Coffee and red wine are usually the first to get blamed for tooth discoloration, but there are many other causes  that could be the culprit.

Common Reasons for Tooth Discoloration

  • Spotty Dental Routine: We’re definitely a little biased at Weddington Family Dentistry. But if you don’t brush and floss regularly (twice a day everyday!), plaque can harden into tartar, leaving a yellow-brown color along your gums that is impossible to remove without professional help.
  • Diet: Some of the foods we hold dearest to our heart, or even depend on daily in the case of many of our team members — like a big cup of dark coffee every Monday morning — can badly stain our teeth. Besides coffee and red wine, a few of the other top offenders include soda, dark juices, and white wine. Even tea, berries, grapes, tomato and soy sauces can leave dark stains or streaks on your teeth, which most people are not quick to think about.
  • Tobacco Use: Smoking and chewing tobacco cause a slew of terrible health issues, the least worrisome of which is yellow teeth. That said, it’s one of the most common aesthetic complaints among tobacco users.
  • Too Much Fluoride: Fluoride is a good thing, but like all good things, too much can be too much, and it isn’t recommended be oral hygiene professionals. Consuming too much of it, like in tap water or through dental care products (like mouthwash), can leave streaks across the surface of your teeth or a brown outline around the base of each tooth.
  • Enamel Decay: Enamel is that hard shell that protects the inside of your tooth. But if it decays or doesn’t fully develop, you may see a variety of stains and changes, including pits, white spots, or yellow-brown streaks. If you suspect decay, schedule an appointment with us as soon as possible. You can do that in just seconds HERE!

Pardon our sounding like a broken record, but generally, the one great way to prevent teeth discoloration is to take exquisite care of your teeth and your health. Stay up to date with your regular dental visits at Weddington Family Dentistry and always remember to brush and floss everyday.

Here are some of our favorite measures you can take right away to keep your teeth bright:

  • Brush after eating or drinking
  • Floss daily
  • Pass on the sugary foods and drinks
  • Add calcium to your diet
  • Nix any tobacco use

We can help, too! If you’re worried about tooth discoloration and need some help adding more sparkle to your smile, we’re here for you. We offer a number of professional whitening services in our office and for you to take home after your visit, including Zoom! Whitening. Give us a call today at (704) 782-2630 to learn more or to schedule your appointment!
