What Causes Discolored Teeth?
A range of factors can cause dark, stained, and yellow teeth. Factors such as age, smoking habits, staining foods and drinks, and certain medications. These conditions may wear down teeth, showing the dark dentin underneath. They may also deeply stain or discolor teeth. However, your dentist can reverse these effects with the correct treatment.
Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is a safe procedure that doesn’t damage teeth or gums. Bleaching treatments that keep tooth sensitivity in mind are painless while providing long-lasting results. Over-the-counter, tooth whitening treatments that you find in supermarkets and drugstores are mostly not as effective to whiten teeth. Professional teeth whitening overseen by a dentist can lighten teeth by multiple shades.
Teeth whitening treatment brightens teeth, improves tooth health, and can help improve your smile confidence. Brightening your smile not only improves the look of your teeth but can also benefit your oral health. Patients who receive our treatment often motivate themselves to maintain their smiles with brushing and flossing; as well as routine dental checkups. Good oral health can prevent problems like gum disease and tooth decay.
Teeth Whitening FAQs
What to expect after teeth whitening?
Patients may feel some temporary sensitivity in their teeth and gums after a teeth whitening treatment. Hydrogen peroxide, the active ingredient in teeth whitening, causes this reaction. It removes stains from teeth by eating away at the top layer of stained enamel.
What to avoid when doing teeth whitening?
After teeth, whitening patients should avoid drinking or eating anything that could stain their teeth. This includes wine, coffee, tea, soda, chocolate, and dark fruits.
How long after teeth whitening can I see results?
You will see the effects of teeth whitening after the first 24 hours. The effects will continue to become more apparent for a couple of days after the procedure.
Can I brush my teeth after whitening?
Patients can brush their teeth after whitening. There may be some sensitivity after a whitening treatment, so it is key to use caution. But it’s quite safe to brush and floss teeth after whitening.
Can you swallow spit while whitening your teeth?
The teeth whitening solution is safe to swallow, but it probably does not taste particularly great. Hydrogen peroxide is the main form of whitening solution, and it breaks down into oxygen which is safe for the body.
How often should you whiten your teeth?
Some dentists recommend that patients whiten their teeth once or twice a year. The results from whitening last between six months to twelve months, so most patients only get treatment once or twice annually.
