Who Should Get Teeth Whitening?

The teeth whitening services we offer are safe when performed in the office and according to our instructions. Our products can help you to see significant improvement in the way your teeth look. However, some people may not be able to have teeth whitening without further dental care as a first step. This may include tooth decay, white spots on the teeth, gum infections, sensitivity, discoloration (for other reasons), crowns, and bridges.

Find the Teeth Whitening You Need

We offer in-office whitening. This process takes around 30 minutes but can improve your teeth color by numerous shades with each visit. When you come in for your consultation, we will talk to you about how well this treatment can work for you and what you can expect.

The process we use involves applying a chemical (hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide in medical-grade concentrations) that creates a reaction on the teeth and works as bleaching to remove stains from the inner tubules of the enamel (where the stains accumulate). You cannot remove these stains through traditional brushing. The whitening technique uses a unique formula to help significantly improve the results. You will find this is a faster and highly efficient way of improving your smile. 

We also offer take-home whitening products. After you come into our office for a check-up and cleaning, we will provide you with a take-home whitening product with custom formed trays. This is an option available only to those who are clinically able to use these products and who would like to do so. Ask our team about how you can benefit from the use of whitening technology and the options available to you.

When You Need Teeth Whitening

Suppose you are nervous about smiling in social or business situations because you are often trying to hide your teeth, which you feel may cause a bad impression. In that case, it is time to talk with your dentist about a teeth whitening program. Before you proceed, however, there are several things about the process that you need to know. There are two distinct types of tooth discoloration — intrinsic and extrinsic yellowing.

Extrinsic yellowing is caused by stains from coffee, tea, red wine, blueberries, and other dark fruits, black tea, and nicotine use. This type can commonly be dealt with by a good cleaning and by using at-home whitening products. However, your dentist may prescribe an in-office treatment for teeth that have been neglected for a period of time or have become deeply stained.

Intrinsic yellowing, on the other hand, is caused by issues on the inside of the teeth and does not respond well to whitening toothpastes. Your dentist can successfully treat this condition with a series of in-office visits using medical-grade bleaching products designed to lighten your teeth’ inner tissues. Here is what you need to know about intrinsic discoloration:

  • Your teeth should be in relatively good condition for this procedure to have maximum effect. If you have got cavities or other dental issues, your dentist will fix these problems before proceeding with the teeth whitening process.
  • You may experience some sensitivity as a result of the process. This generally doesn’t last more than 24 hours and can be alleviated using over-the-counter pain relievers.
  • The results will last anywhere from six months to two years, so you should be prepared for having whitening treatments as a semi-regular part of your dental care.
