What is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dentistry process that brightens your natural teeth to improve their appearance. Teeth whitening can correct stains and white spots, creating a healthy look and drawing positive attention.

In-Office and At-Home Whitening

We offer both in-office and at-home standard whitening. The dentist protects your gums and lips from the bleach solution during a whitening procedure. The dentist applies the bleach in multiple brief sessions. 

We also provide at-home whitening trays to allow you to touch up your appearance between visits. Use these trays in accordance with our directions for best results.

Resin Infiltration

Resin infiltration goes one step further than ordinary bleach whitening. After cleaning and treating with ethanol, the dentist applies tooth-colored composite resin to the visible surfaces.

Resin infiltration can take care of bothersome white spots on teeth, which standard bleaching cannot address. Patients with fluorosis and other disorders appreciate the ability to eliminate the white spots on their teeth.

Benefits of Teeth Whitening

Improve Your Self-Confidence. People with stained teeth often feel self-conscious about their appearance, but teeth whitening makes them want to smile. Patients will no longer cover their mouths with their hands when they smile or avoid showing their teeth in photographs.

Project an Image of Health. White teeth are healthy teeth. Whiter teeth can take years off your facial appearance. To look healthy and at your best, teeth whitening is an excellent place to start.

Improve Your Professional Appearance. Busy adults appreciate teeth whitening because it helps them improve their professional image. If you are in a public-facing job, teeth whitening can improve your prospects.

Improve Oral Health. Teeth whitening is not only beneficial for your good looks, it also kills bacteria that cause plaque and gum disease.

Are You a Good Candidate for Whitening?

Most patients are good candidates for teeth whitening, but there are a few exceptions:

Patients who have sensitive teeth may not wish to go through with teeth whitening, as the bleaching involved in both processes can worsen sensitivity.

Patients with implants, crowns, and bridges should know that teeth whitening does not affect these restorations. If they choose to whiten their teeth, they will need to go no whiter than their existing restorations.

Avoid smoking and consuming staining foods and beverages as much as possible to keep your teeth bright after whitening. If you consume a staining beverage, brush your teeth as soon as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions About Teeth Whitening

Is teeth whitening permanent?

Teeth whitening is not a permanent fix. Teeth naturally turn yellow over time, and you will need to repeat the procedure to maintain a perfectly white smile.

Resin infiltration lasts somewhat longer than bleach alone. It could last anywhere from 2 to 6 years. Bleaching can last from 6 months to 3 years.

You can make your teeth stay whiter longer by following all home care instructions and avoiding staining foods and beverages. Ensure that you visit the dentist twice a year for routine cleanings and exams. Keeping your teeth as clean as possible will help to maintain their appearance.

Why doesn't teeth whitening affect crowns and bridges?
Bleach and resin cannot penetrate the ceramic coating on crowns and bridges. Why should I have my teeth whitened under a dentist's supervision instead of on my own? Professional care is best for whitening teeth. Over-the-counter whitening products show slow and incomplete results compared to professional methods. On the other hand, you can over-whiten your teeth and permanently damage your enamel if you go it alone.
How does teeth whitening cause sensitivity?
Teeth whitening may expose micro-tubules in the enamel. Within a few days, the minerals in the enamel should begin to replenish themselves and relieve sensitivity.
