Teeth Whitening Q & A

What is teeth whitening?

While everyone wants a beautiful and bright smile, many people need a little help to get there. Whether it is from aging, eating staining foods, certain medications, or harmful habits like tobacco use, many people experience changes to the color of their teeth. Fortunately, professional teeth whitening services can dramatically improve the color and appearance of your teeth, restoring your smile and boosting your confidence.  

Springs Dental offers both in-office treatments as well as professionally supervised take-home whitening treatments. In-office treatments deliver dramatic results in a short period of time, perfect if you want visibly whiter teeth for a special occasion. Take-home treatments are a convenient and effective solution, combining custom-made whitening trays with professional instruction and monitoring. 

How does teeth whitening work?

Teeth whitening utilizes carbamide peroxide. When applied to your teeth, this solution causes dramatic whitening results in a convenient manner. During in-office treatments, the team may use a special light to enhance the whitening power of the carbamide peroxide. 

What can I expect from my results?

Teeth whitening is quite effective, providing benefits for up to 90% of patients. Results last anywhere between one to five years, depending on your oral care habits. However, retreatment is always possible. Every case is different, making it hard to determine exactly how much whiter your teeth will appear. However, many people experience two shades of whitening. 

Is teeth whitening safe?

Teeth whitening is considered to be a safe and effective treatment, especially when conducted under the supervision of a dentist. In fact, the American Dental Association has granted approval for a range of whitening products. It is possible to develop slight gum sensitivity or irritation, although this will resolve when treatment ends. 

Is teeth whitening for everyone?

Generally, teeth whitening is tolerated well by many people. However, those with periodontal disease, sensitive teeth, or worn enamel may be advised to have these issues addressed first before teeth whitening is performed. The team at Springs Dental will work with you to determine if you are a candidate for teeth whitening.
