Over time teeth will accumulate tartar from sugars and other foods. As tartar builds, it calcifies and can stain teeth an unpleasant yellow color. Platinum Dental offers various whitening solutions including custom fitted bleach trays and laser whitening treatments. It is important to whiten teeth moderately for natural looking teeth. If too many whitening treatments are applied the teeth can begin to look a light blue-gray color that is unappealing.
A thin layer of Fluoride protects the enamel of the teeth from decay. Fluoride is 10 times more resistant to decay than the molecular structure of tooth enamel. It is important to use toothpaste that has fluoride to strengthen the thin, clear layer of the tooth. Fluoride treatments can also help when visiting the dentist for regular cleanings. Regular cleanings and exams are important to detect the beginning stages of decay.
Zoom Whitening uses a concentrated bleaching agent and proprietary light to accelerate the whitening process. Although convenient and fast, this service is recommended to patients with good oral health and low tooth sensitivity.
