Will Dental Whitening Work for You?
Those with yellowish teeth achieve the best results, while patients with brownish or grayish teeth may obtain a better outcome through the use of dental veneers or caps. Additionally, your teeth need to be healthy before the procedure, or it may worsen existing dental problems. Consult with your dentist to determine if teeth whitening is the best choice for you.
Whitening will not work on dental veneers, so these thin shells may be darker than your newly-brightened teeth. On the other hand, if it is much whiter than your stained teeth, this process may help it to better blend in with your smile. You can also work with our dentist to replace your veneer with one that perfectly matches your whitened teeth.
What Can You Expect During Your Teeth Whitening Procedure?
Your dentist may provide you with a custom-made mouthpiece and bleaching solution for gradual at-home whitening. With this method, achieving the right shade may take a few days or even a few weeks.
You may also choose a 30 to 90-minute in-office teeth whitening treatment. During this treatment, the dentist protects your gums with a special substance or shield. Then, a hydrogen-peroxide-based gel is applied to your teeth. This gel will absorb into your teeth and gently push out stains. Additionally, a laser light may be used to speed up this process.
Depending on the severity of the staining, you may need multiple sessions to achieve the pearly white smile of your dreams.
Are There Any Side Effects?
You may experience temporary tooth sensitivity after whitening. Additionally, overuse of whitening products can damage your enamel or gums, so it’s important to follow the instructions of your dentist.
How Can You Keep Your Teeth Bright?
Don’t walk out of our office and immediately start staining your teeth! Avoid smoking or chewing tobacco to stop unsightly discoloration. Dark beverages like coffee and red wine are also a common cause of stains. Eliminate these drinks from your diet, use a straw to protect your teeth, or sip water after consuming these beverages to stop stains from forming.
