Why Are My Teeth Stained?
Tooth discoloration is a common issue with many individuals. Your teeth can darken, spots can appear, or the overall color can change. Common reasons why teeth can become stained and discolored include:
- Frequent consumption of certain foods/drinks
- Tobacco use
- Poor dental hygiene
Teeth whitening is effective at eliminating surface stains caused by food or drinks, tobacco, or poor hygiene. However, it is less effective on discoloration that occurs deep within the tooth, such as from injury or genetics. In those cases, you may benefit from a cosmetic treatment such as veneers or crowns. Our dentist will work with you to determine the cause of your discoloration and whether teeth whitening is a good choice for you.
Tailoring Our Services to Your Smile
Modern teeth whitening is a routine procedure begun in our office but which you can manage at home under our instructions. We understand that no two sets of teeth are alike. Our dental team uses technology and focused methods to craft a personalized plastic tray fashioned to your smile. It will sit comfortably and securely on your teeth to ensure you experience satisfying results.
We use a wand-like digital impression device called an iTero® Scanner to improve the accuracy of the tailoring process. This device will scan your oral structure, creating a detailed 3D image which we send to our computer to finalize your tray design. This procedure is safe, expedites the process, and personalizes the treatment for optimal results. The custom plastic tray is molded perfectly to your oral structure, helping to prevent the teeth-whitening gel from touching your gums and to spread the whitening gel more evenly across your entire smile.
Our Take-Home Teeth Whitening Treatment
Our dentist will provide instructions for using the tray to achieve the sparkling results you're after. Apply the gel evenly across the tray to promote bright, noticeable whitening across your entire smile. Once finished, you will securely fit the tray into your mouth with the gel firmly pressing against each tooth. The process is that simple. Our dentists will advise you regarding whether you should wear the tray overnight or during certain times throughout the day. Additionally, our dental team can provide more gel as you need it, and you can continue to use your custom trays every time.
Teeth Whitening Service FAQs
Teeth whitening is a routine procedure becoming more popular each year. We'd like to inform you about all specifics and address any of your questions regarding the process and its potential results. Some of the questions we frequently get asked include:
Yes. Teeth whitening is known to cause minor sensitivity during and after the procedure. The solution will lift the stains, leaving your teeth temporarily vulnerable to hot or cold items. This shouldn't last for more than a few hours at most, and our dentists would be happy to answer any questions or give advice on how you can handle this inconvenience.
No. Typically, modern teeth whitening results can last over a year, with some maintaining their sparkle for much longer. Patients who practice good oral health routines are more likely to see results last longer.
There are a few routines you can practice to make teeth whitening results last for as long as possible. Some of the best ways include:
- Brush after every meal
- Limit consumption of heavily pigmented beverages such as coffee, tea, soda, and wine, and staining foods like curry or spaghetti sauce
- Maintain regular cleanings
- Avoid dyed mouthwashes
