Teeth Whitening


Is Teeth Whitening Toothpaste Safe

Teeth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile.

Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of most patients, there are several ways to whiten teeth.

The most popular method is using a home tooth whitening system that will whiten teeth dramatically.

Since tooth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate replacement of any old fillings, crowns, etc. Replacement of any restorations will be done after whitening so they will match the newly bleached teeth.

Whitening Trays Differs From OTC

Tooth whitening is not permanent. A touch-up maybe needed once a year and more often if you smoke and/or drink coffee, tea, or wine.

Reasons for Tooth Whitening


•  Fluorosis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development)
•  Normal wear of outer tooth layer
•  Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, etc.)
•  Yellow, brown stained teeth

What Does At-Home Tooth Whitening Involve?


What is Teeth Whitening

Whitening systems provided by our dental office usually require two visits. At the first appointment, impressions (molds) will be made of your teeth to fabricate custom, clear, plastic trays.

At your second appointment, you will try on the trays for proper fit, and adjustments will be made if necessary. The trays are worn with special whitening solution either twice a day for 30 minutes or overnight for a couple of weeks depending on the degree of staining and desired level of whitening.

It is normal to experience tooth sensitivity during the time you are whitening your teeth, but it will subside shortly after you have stopped bleaching.
