Teeth Whitening Q & A
What is teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments and one of the simplest ways to get a better-looking smile.
While there are several types of teeth whitening to choose from, they all rely on the stain lifting powers of bleaching products like hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide.
Most teeth whitening treatments result in your teeth becoming several shades whiter than before. A difference of just two or three shades can make a big difference for your smile and for your overall appearance.
What are my choices for teeth whitening?
The team at Cute Dental Care, PC provides three options for teeth whitening. They can help you choose the treatment that fits best with your lifestyle, preferences, and your level of staining. All three choices are remarkably effective. You can choose:
Whitening toothpastes are different from traditional toothpastes in that they contain extra polishing agents to help remove stains. However, the results aren’t as drastic as take-home or in-office whitening treatments from Cute Dental Care, PC.
If you don’t have the time to spare for a whitening appointment at the office, you can get take-home whitening kits from the team at Cute Dental Care, PC.
During an hour-long treatment in the office at Cute Dental Care, PC, the team places the bleaching product on your teeth and activates it with a bright light for intervals of about 20 minutes.
Does teeth whitening work on all teeth?
You should consult with your dentist at Cute Dental Care, PC before getting teeth whitening treatments since they aren’t effective on all teeth.
First, it’s important to note that whitening won’t affect the color of your veneers, crowns, dentures, fillings, or bridges. If the synthetic materials on your repairs and restorations don’t match the shade of your teeth after whitening, you can request replacements.
Although teeth whitening is highly effective for lightening yellow or brown staining, it doesn’t work for gray discoloration. This type of discoloration usually comes as a side effect of medication or as the result of an injury.
If you want those teeth to look whiter, your dentist might recommend a veneer or a crown as a cover.
