At-Home Teeth Whitening
Whitening trays are used from home on a daily basis until the desired shade of white has been reached. Results from whitening trays can be seen in as little as one week. Whitening trays can be used for several weeks and will gradually work to whiten your smile. Whitening trays are a great way to achieve a brighter smile from home and see results quickly. In-office whitening trays are effective and safe for gums and teeth.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
One-visit whitening is the fastest type of teeth whitening that we offer. In just one visit, you can walk out with a noticeably whiter smile! One-visit whitening is designed to remove years of staining in just one appointment. If severe staining, damage or discoloration has occurred, veneers or other treatment may be recommended depending on the severity of your teeth. However, in most cases whitening can be performed in just one visit.
Will teeth whitening make my teeth sensitive?
Teeth whitening products can cause some temporary sensitivity, especially if your teeth are already on the sensitive side. Fortunately, any sensitivity that is caused by whitening products should fade after a few days. During this time, it can be helpful to avoid eating and drinking very hot and cold foods and drinks as well as really sweet or rich desserts, as these things can cause discomfort. If you are worried about tooth sensitivity, please let us know, and we will do what we can to help you.
How long does teeth whitening last?
Professional teeth whitening can last anywhere from six months to two years on average. The reason that there is such a large range is because there are a few things that can affect how white a patient’s teeth will appear over time. Patients who smoke or frequently drink dark-colored drinks like coffee, tea, and red wine may notice that their teeth do not remain as white as they would like for as long as they would like. Our team can find a schedule that works with your lifestyle to help you keep your smile bright and consistently white.
Does teeth whitening damage tooth enamel?
Tooth enamel is the outermost layer of a tooth that helps protect it from harmful bacteria. This outer layer, however, is not what is responsible for the color of a tooth. Teeth whitening gel gets absorbed into the tooth past the enamel and changes the color of the dentin, which is perfectly safe and does not harm the tooth. Teeth whitening, in general, is a very safe practice, especially when it is done under the guidance of an experienced dentist. If you are worried about your enamel, scheduling regular fluoride treatments may be a good option for you.
