What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening removes the stains and discoloration from your teeth with a bleaching solution to give you a brighter, whiter smile. 

When you choose a professional dentist to whiten your teeth, you’re monitored throughout treatment. When compared to using over-the-counter teeth whitening products, your provider uses a professional-grade whitening agent that has a higher concentration of hydrogen peroxide, which makes your results far more noticeable. You can also rely on your provider for safe treatment.

How can teeth whitening improve my smile?

Your teeth can become stained or discolored for several reasons. One includes the simple wear-and-tear that happens to your enamel over time, which ultimately reveals the yellowish layer underneath called dentin. 

The food and drinks you choose can also stain your teeth, diminishing their whiteness. They include:

  • Coffee, tea, red wine, or dark beverages
  • Berries
  • Tomato sauce
  • Chocolate

Tar and nicotine from chewing tobacco or smoking cigarettes can also play a role in dulling the color of your teeth, leaving stains on your enamel.

What can I expect with teeth whitening?

When you visit Solomon Family Dentistry, your provider has you sit comfortably in a dental chair as they prepare your teeth. They place a rubber shield in your mouth to protect your gums and lips from the bleaching solution. Then they apply the bleaching agent. 

Within minutes, the treatment begins to work, allowing oxygen to penetrate your enamel to lift stains and whiten your teeth. Your provider may also use a laser on your teeth after applying the bleaching gel to speed up the whitening process.

The whitening treatment lasts less than an hour from start to finish, and you walk out with a beautiful, radiant smile.

How long do teeth whitening results last?

Your teeth whitening results can last 1-2 years, depending on your oral hygiene. Your provider will likely recommend the following:

  • Brush your teeth at least twice daily with a soft-bristled toothbrush
  • Floss at least once a day
  • Use an antiseptic mouth rinse daily
  • Keep your routine appointments with your dentist

You should also avoid stain-causing food and drinks to prolong the whiteness of your teeth.
