Invisalign, Whitening, and Veneers Q&A
What causes teeth to become stained?
Although teeth may seem hard and durable, they are still susceptible to staining that can occur from regular consumption of different foods and drinks, like coffee, tea, red wine and dark berries. Smoking can also cause teeth to look dim and yellow.
How does professional whitening work?
Professional whitening uses powerful but safe agents specifically designed for professional use only to gently but effectively remove stains and discoloration that make teeth look old or dingy. Thanks to special formulations of professional whitening systems, they are much more effective than over-the-counter products, providing longer-lasting results with treatments that are safer for the tooth's delicate structure. Palo Alto Dental Spa uses the Zoom! Whitening system, which combines a special light-sensitive whitening gel with a special activating light system designed to help remove even the most stubborn stains.
Can I whiten my teeth at home?
Yes; Palo Alto Dental Spa also offers an at-home tray system that uses an impression of your teeth to create a custom tray designed to ensure the special whitening formulation reaches all the “nooks and crannies” of your teeth for professional results right in your own home.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a patented orthodontic system that relies on a series of custom-made trays specifically designed to fit your mouth. Over time, these trays gently move your teeth into proper alignment. Because they are made of smooth, clear plastic, they are nearly invisible, and they can be removed when you eat and to make it easy to brush and floss your teeth.
What are veneers?
Veneers are thin ceramic shells that cover the surface of the teeth to cover defects like cracks, chips, pits and stubborn stains and to address issues like uneven edges, gaps or other imperfections that can mar your beautiful smile. They are designed to be strong and long-lasting and are easy to apply and maintain.
