Teeth Whitening Q & A
What is professional teeth whitening?

Professional teeth whitening is a safe and effective procedure to brighten the color of your teeth. It’s one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments because it’s a quick and easy way to instantly improve the appearance of your smile.
Teeth Whitening Q & A
What is professional teeth whitening?

Why aren’t my teeth as white as they used to be?

Your teeth can lose their whiteness and luminance for a number of reasons. The most common cause is a combination of poor oral hygiene and consuming too many substances that cause stains. Some of the more common stain-causing substances are:

* Coffee
* Tea
* Red wine
* Soda
* Berries
* Tomato-based sauces
* Cigarettes
* Chewing tobacco

Certain medications can also play a role in the color of your teeth. If you were exposed to tetracycline antibiotics before the age of 8, for example, your teeth might be discolored.

Lastly, the color of your teeth naturally changes as you age. Over time, the hard outer layer of your teeth (enamel) wears down, allowing more of the yellowish, soft inner layer (dentin) to show through. The combination of thinning enamel and yellowed dentin discolors your smile.

What is the process for teeth whitening?

There are a few different ways to professionally whiten your teeth, but two of the most popular methods are in-office whitening and take-home whitening trays.

In-office whitening
In-office whitening, or chairside whitening, happens entirely at your dentist’s office. You can lighten your smile by up to eight shades in a single appointment that takes less than an hour. Your dentist carefully applies a special whitening solution to the surface of your teeth, then shines a specialized light on them to activate the whitening solution and help it penetrate your enamel more deeply.

Take-home whitening trays
Take-home whitening trays enable you to whiten your teeth from the comfort of your home and the convenience of your schedule. Your dentist takes an impression of your mouth and uses it to fabricate custom whitening trays that fit perfectly around your teeth. You fill your trays with a professional-strength whitening gel and wear them on your teeth for a specific amount of time every day. You’ll notice a whiter and more beautiful smile in just a matter of weeks.

Does teeth whitening hurt?

No, teeth whitening is a minimally invasive and painless procedure. Some patients experience sensitivity in their teeth during or after their treatment. If you’re noticing that your teeth are more sensitive after a whitening procedure, Dr. Suarez can recommend a special toothpaste to help reduce the sensitivity.
