Causes of Dental Discoloration

Tooth discoloration can occur for a number of reasons. It’s important that we understand the underlying causes of dental discoloration before we recommend any teeth whitening solution. Some of the many of causes of dental discoloration include:

Zoom! In-Office Teeth Whitening

Zoom! is one of the most popular professional teeth whitening options. This in-office whitening process uses a custom dosage of whitening agent that is activated with a low heat curing light to deliver brighter smiles in about an hour. The process is simple. We begin by isolating the teeth to ensure soft tissue is not damaged or irritated by the whitening agent. Then, we apply a coat of whitening gel and the low heat accelerant light. We check the progress every twenty minutes and reapply as necessary to achieve the desired teeth whitening results. Most patients achieve smiles five to ten shades brighter in about an hour.

Professional Take-Home Kits

Unlike store bought teeth whitening kits with low doses of whitening agent and ill-fitting application trays, our professional take-home whitening kits use a custom dose of whitening agent and personalized application trays. Patients will receive personalized doses of whitening agent, custom application trays, and a treatment plan to address their unique teeth whitening goals. Most patients will need to wear their whitening application trays for thirty minutes at a time for about two weeks to achieve their desired results. Take-home whitening kits can also be used a few days each year to touch up the results of in-office teeth whitening.

Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening

Store bought teeth whitening treatments promise dramatic results they often can’t deliver because of the low doses of active whitening agent and the poor application methods. Professional teeth whitening offers much more predictable results. Additionally, they are performed with the recommendation and under the supervision of a skilled cosmetic dentist. This means professional teeth whitening is safer and more likely be successful. If you want to brighten your smile, talk to our cosmetic dentists and team first. We’ll partner with you to create a personalized teeth whitening plan that will deliver your desired results.

Does Teeth Whitening Hurt?

Teeth whitening just involves placing a bit of whitening solution onto your smile, which is a completely painless process. You should expect to be completely comfortable for the duration of the time that you’re getting your teeth whitened.

We’ll also customize the whitening solution that we use for your teeth to minimize the sensitivity you experience after the treatment. If you’re unusually prone to sensitive teeth, please let us know beforehand so we can make adjustments.

Am I a Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening is a safe and effective treatment that can easily melt away stains on your teeth. Just about anyone who is unhappy with the color of their smile can benefit from the treatment.

However, there are a few circumstances where you may not be an ideal candidate. For one, if you have oral health problems, you may need to have those treated if you want to avoid complications. It’s also recommended that teenagers avoid teeth whitening, as their enamel may not be fully developed.

Is Teeth Whitening Permanent?

Teeth whitening isn’t permanent, but it lasts longer than you would probably expect. The treatment can keep your teeth white for anywhere from a few months to a few years depending on how well you take care of them in the months after the treatment.

By sticking to solid dental hygiene, avoiding foods that can stain your teeth, and seeing us for regular cleanings, you can prolong the results of your whitening.

How Long Does Teeth Whitening Treatment Take?

There are two different kinds of teeth whitening—in-office and take-home. In-office whitening is incredibly efficient, capable of giving you results within a single hour-long appointment. Take-home whitening has the benefit of being done from your own home, but takes a bit longer. You’ll need a few weeks before you see the results that you’re probably looking for.
