Professional Teeth Whitening
If you decide to get professional whitening, our dentist will apply a whitening gel to the surface of your teeth. The gel should be thick enough to stay on your teeth but thin enough to not cause irritation. The gel typically has a pH of 7.5 to 8.0, which is slightly acidic.
At-Home Teeth Whitening Kits
There are many over-the-counter whitening products. Some may remove superficial stains, while others can lighten the tooth structure. However, they may not be effective enough to remove the staining on your teeth. As an alternative, we provide at-home whitening kits.
At-home whitening kits that involve wearing a mouthguard that contains bleach. Our dentist can make custom-fitted mouthguards for you. However, you should always consult with our dentist before trying an at-home whitening product. Our dentist could also recommend which over-the-counter product might be best for you.

Safety of Whitening Methods
Our dentist can talk with you about any whitening methods. Many people have had their teeth whitened with at-home methods, but in-office whitening is safer. Moreover, in-office whitening offers faster results.
The whitening gel contains a stronger bleaching agent than in at-home products. This bleaching agent can irritate your gums, so our dentist will always cover your gums to protect them. We will also use a retractor to help keep your cheeks and lips away from the teeth. Since the whitening gel is a bleaching agent, the retractor will also protect these sensitive tissues.
Teeth Whitening FAQs
Teeth whitening, when performed correctly and under professional guidance, is generally considered safe. However, some individuals may experience temporary tooth sensitivity or gum irritation. It’s important to follow the instructions provided by your dentist or the product manufacturer to minimize risks and achieve safe results.
The longevity of teeth whitening results varies from person to person. It depends on factors such as oral hygiene practices, dietary habits, and lifestyle choices. On average, teeth whitening effects can last from several months to a couple of years. Periodic touch-ups or maintenance treatments may be needed to sustain the whiteness.
Teeth whitening is most effective for removing surface stains caused by factors like food, beverages, and tobacco. However, it may not be as effective on intrinsic stains that originate from within the tooth or certain types of discoloration caused by dental conditions or medications. Your dentist can assess the nature of your stains and recommend the most appropriate treatment option.
Teeth whitening treatments primarily target natural tooth enamel and do not significantly change the color of dental restorations like crowns, veneers, or fillings. If you have dental restorations that do not match the desired tooth shade, your dentist can discuss alternative options such as replacing or adjusting the restorations.
Teeth whitening is generally not recommended for teenagers unless there is a specific need or indication. Teenagers’ teeth and gums are still developing, and it’s important to prioritize their oral health. It’s best to consult with a dentist to determine if teeth whitening is appropriate for a teenager on a case-by-case basis.
It is generally advised to avoid teeth whitening procedures during pregnancy or while breastfeeding. Although there is limited evidence suggesting any harm, it’s best to err on the side of caution and postpone teeth whitening until after pregnancy or breastfeeding.
If you have tooth sensitivity, it’s important to consult with your dentist before pursuing teeth whitening. They can assess the cause and severity of your sensitivity and recommend appropriate solutions or alternative treatments to minimize discomfort during the whitening process.
If teeth whitening is not suitable for you or does not provide the desired results, there are alternative cosmetic dental treatments available. Options such as dental veneers or bonding can help improve the appearance of stained or discolored teeth.
To maintain teeth whitening results, it’s important to practice good oral hygiene, including regular brushing and flossing. Avoid or minimize consumption of stain-causing foods and beverages, such as coffee, tea, red wine, and tobacco products. Routine dental check-ups and professional cleanings can also help preserve your bright smile.
