What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a part of cosmetic dentistry that helps to treat discoloration and stains on the surfaces of your teeth. This dental service focuses on aesthetics, working closely with you and your smile goals to enhance the appearance of your teeth.

The dental providers at Dently are dedicated to your satisfaction and understand that your smile care needs may be different from other patients. They discuss what you like and dislike about your smile to offer you the best teeth whitening options.

How does teeth whitening work?

Professional teeth whitening often involves a hydrogen peroxide gel. When the gel is applied to the surfaces of your teeth, it oxidizes the molecules inside your enamel to eliminate stains.

While whitening strips and toothpastes from the drug store can make your smile appear brighter, chairside or professional teeth whitening trays from the dentist are more effective at reducing discoloration.

Why do teeth change color?

The natural aging process causes teeth to change color. When you brush your teeth, speak, and chew everyday, the enamel gradually wears away, revealing the yellow dentin beneath.

However, there are many lifestyle factors that may play a role in tooth discoloration and stains, including:

  • Drinking beverages such as coffee, cola, or red wine
  • Using tobacco
  • Taking certain prescription medications
  • Eating foods with curry, spaghetti sauce, or soy sauce
  • Having poor oral hygiene

Without proper dental treatments, it may cause those stains to become even more visible over time. Teeth whitening can help to eliminate the years of discoloration and buildup.

What are some examples of professional teeth whitening?

Some examples of professional teeth whitening include:

In-office teeth whitening

With in-office whitening, your provider can make your smile several shades lighter in under one hour. They apply a hydrogen peroxide solution to your teeth and then you wait for about 30 minutes before they point a special light to activate the solution.

Take-home whitening kits

If you’d like a more convenient solution, you may consider whitening trays that you can use at home. You wear mouthpieces with the whitening solution for 3-4 hours a day. About two to three weeks later, you’ll find a significant reduction in stains*.

Is teeth whitening permanent?

Teeth whitening results aren’t permanent solutions, but they can last several months* with proper oral health care. The dental providers at Dently recommend brushing your teeth and flossing regularly. You should also visit your dentist every six months for an oral health exam and routine teeth cleaning.
