Teeth Whitening Q&A

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening at Family & Cosmetic Dentistry uses advanced whitening kits that make your teeth multiple shades whiter after just a single session. Teeth whitening is simple, fast, painless, and highly effective. You can choose in-office treatments or at-home whitening kits, depending on your lifestyle and preferences.

What causes teeth staining?

Some of the most common causes of teeth staining include:

  • Colas
  • Red wine
  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Some medications
  • Smoking
  • Aging
  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Popsicles
  • Tomato sauce
  • Soy sauce
  • Dark juices
  • Other foods and drinks that stain

Despite adopting exceptional oral hygiene habits, tooth staining can still occur. That’s why many patients choose teeth whitening at Family & Cosmetic Dentistry to enhance the appearance of their teeth and smile.

Is teeth whitening right for me?

To find out if you’re a candidate for teeth whitening, your Family & Cosmetic Dentistry provider reviews your oral health history, takes dental X-rays if needed, and examines your gums and teeth. They remove any tooth decay or repair imperfect teeth if needed before you complete in-office or at-home whitening. 

What should I expect during teeth whitening?

During teeth whitening at Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, you rest in a comfortable dental chair. Your provider places advanced teeth-whitening gel in trays over your teeth while you relax, read a book, listen to music, or look at your phone. In less than an hour, you can expect whiter, brighter, beautiful teeth.

If you choose home whitening kits instead, simply place trays and gel or bleaching strips on your teeth as directed by your dentist, remove the gel and trays afterward, and rinse out your mouth. Your Family & Cosmetic Dentistry specialist lets you know how often to complete in-office or at-home teeth whitening to achieve superior results.

How can I keep my teeth white?

To keep your teeth as white as possible, limit or avoid foods and drinks that stain, and avoid smoking. Brush your teeth using whitening toothpaste after meals, floss every day, and attend routine dental cleanings and exams at Family & Cosmetic Dentistry at least every six months. 

Use whitening mouthwash if your dentist recommends it, and complete teeth whitening sessions as needed to maintain a vibrant smile.
