There’s an old quote from Mother Theresa that says, “Peace begins with a smile” – and she wasn’t lying. Even in a world where language barriers and cultural differences make it difficult to communicate freely, your smile is one of the few things understood worldwide – no matter what (if any) language you speak.
Despite being a universal symbol of happiness and confidence, most people aren’t happy or confident in their smile. In fact, a survey by Mintel/Greenfield Online found that more than two-thirds of Americans have tried to restore their stained, yellow teeth with a teeth-whitening system – most of whom succeeded.
Going from yellow teeth to white teeth can be a game-changer for some people – transforming the way they feel about themselves. What used to be one of their biggest insecurities is now their greatest feature – one they can’t wait to show off to the rest of the world. Those stained teeth never stood a chance!
So, why are my teeth yellow/stained?
There are a variety of reasons why someone’s teeth might turn a yellowish hue – intrinsic stains, extrinsic stains, enamel breakdown, genetics, the natural aging process, it never ends! While some of these causes and risk factors are preventable and avoidable, others are inevitable and only a matter of time.
Yellowing and staining of the teeth can be caused by a number of factors, including:
Some of us do everything right when maintaining good oral hygiene, but it doesn’t seem to matter. We brush twice per day, floss on a daily basis, use mouthwash, and schedule regular cleanings with our dentist – all of which are essential to a healthy oral hygiene routine, but won’t guarantee white teeth.
We can’t hide from yellow teeth – no matter how hard we try – but we can certainly run from it. That’s where the Zoom Teeth Whitening system comes in to save the day. With just one 45-minute appointment with your favorite Staten Island dentist, you’ll be wondering why you didn’t try Zoom earlier.
The Zoom Teeth Whitening system consists of two technologies:
They say the grass is always greener on the other side, but with the Zoom Teeth Whitening system, your teeth are always whiter on the other side – and your smile a little bit brighter. Don’t worry – patients are encouraged to watch television, read a book, listen to music, or simply kick their feet back and relax.
Zoom is widely regarded as the safest and most effective teeth-whitening system available today – some people call it the ‘gold standard,’ but we call it the ‘white standard.’ The combination of light and gel is something your teeth have never seen before – it’s the whitening gel your teeth didn’t know they needed.
Here are just some of the reasons why you should consider Zoom for whiter teeth:
We’ve all been there. We take a photo of ourselves and are about to post it online, but then we take one glance at our smile – we’ve never deleted a photo so fast. With Zoom, you can restore some of that lost confidence. In fact, you’ll be begging those cameras to ‘zoom’ in for a close-up of that beautiful smile.
Zoom patients need to be careful about what they drink or eat in the week following the procedure – that means avoiding coffee, tea, berries, tomatoes, and red wine. As a general rule of thumb, patients should avoid eating or drinking anything they wouldn’t eat or drink on their mother's or father’s white couch.
Here are some other things you can do to naturally whiten (or prevent the yellowing of) teeth over time:
Are you unimpressed by the yellowing or staining of your teeth? Do you dream of a whiter, brighter, and healthier smile? Are you tired of hiding your smile out of pure embarrassment? Do you want confidence in your smile again? If you answered ‘yes’ to any of the questions above, then we want to speak with you!
