    When Should You Consider Teeth Whitening?

    Our dentists advise that the effects of teeth whitening do not extend to crowns, veneers, bridges or fillings. Therefore, whitening your teeth is most strategic before the placement of any such dental enhancements. This approach ensures that the color of any restorative work done later can be tailored to match your teeth post-whitening.

    Professional teeth whitening processes are capable of removing both external stains and internal discolorations, revitalizing your smile’s appearance.

    Exploring the Reasons Behind Stained and Discolored Teeth

    On the Surface: Enamel, the tooth’s outermost layer, is mineral-dense and the hardest substance in the body. Despite its strength, it has a porous structure that can soak up stain-causing elements from:

    • Dark-colored beverages, including coffee, tea, wine, and colored sodas.
    • Certain sauces, such as those based on tomatoes and soy.
    • Sugary snacks and drinks.
    • Fruits with intense colors like berries, cherries, and pomegranates.
    • Tobacco use.
    • Inadequate nutrition and oral hygiene can further tarnish the appearance of your teeth.

    Below the Surface: The layer beneath the enamel naturally possesses a yellow or gray tint. With age, as the enamel layer diminishes, this underlying color begins to dominate, leading to a less bright smile. The inner part of the tooth can also change color due to the effects of medications, diseases, or physical trauma to the tooth.

    Best Methods for Teeth Whitening

    Whitening your teeth provides a safe and efficient way to lighten their natural color without the complexities of more invasive dental enhancements like veneers. With options for both professional in-office treatments and at-home care using our customized kits, you can enjoy a brighter smile without enduring ongoing sensitivity.

    In-Clinic Whitening Procedures

    Our clinic offers professional whitening treatments as the premier solution for enhancing your smile. The procedure includes applying a powerful bleaching agent to your teeth with trays specifically designed for your mouth. A laser gently warms the solution to activate the whitening process, effectively removing stains with immediate results, all while minimizing potential sensitivity and gum issues.

    Personalized Home Whitening Kits

    For those who prefer whitening their teeth in the privacy of their own home, we provide bespoke take-home kits. Equipped with trays made to fit the precise contours of your teeth, these kits allow for even application and thorough whitening. Our custom trays, molded from your teeth’s exact dimensions, offer advantages in comfort and effectiveness over standard kits, gradually brightening your enamel over several weeks.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Plaque results from not cleaning food and beverage bacteria off teeth adequately, eventually hardening into tartar, which requires professional dental cleaning to remove. Regular and detailed brushing is necessary to prevent this yellowish deposit from forming around the teeth.

    Teeth whitening is safe for most, yet it might cause temporary sensitivity, particularly after the first few treatments. Such sensitivity usually lessens over time, and it is vital to follow the kit or product instructions precisely.

    Non-natural teeth, such as crowns, veneers, or fillings, will not lighten with teeth whitening, possibly making them more visible against whitened natural teeth.

    It is uncommon for dental insurance to cover teeth whitening, so checking with your provider is recommended. We can also provide a cost estimate for you to share with your insurance.

    Following a whitening treatment, avoiding food and drinks that could cause stains on white clothing will help extend the effects of the treatment. This includes most dark liquids and certain foods.

    The effects of teeth whitening can last from 6 months to 3 years, influenced by the specific whitening approach and ongoing oral hygiene practices.
