Teeth Whitening Q & A

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure that improves the color of your teeth. The team at Gables Family Dental offers advanced teeth whitening to give you a whiter, brighter smile quickly. The team uses the finest bleaching agents and the most advanced dental technology to remove stains and discoloration and give you the smile you want.

What causes teeth discoloration?

Your teeth may not be as bright and white as they once were for many reasons. Some of the most common reasons for teeth discoloration include:

Food and drinks

You can blame your morning coffee habit for your dull-looking teeth. Coffee, along with tea, red wine, and berries, contains teeth-staining pigments that affect the color of your teeth.

Wear and tear

Over time, the wear and tear your teeth endure may also lead to a duller smile due to the loss of some of your enamel, which allows the yellow dentin to show through.

Dental trauma or injury

When you injure your tooth, it reacts by producing more dentin, which in turn causes the tooth to yellow.

The use of tobacco and certain medications can also cause your teeth to change color and turn yellow, brown, or gray.

If you’re unhappy with your dull, discolored teeth, the team at Gables Family Dental has a solution that can brighten your smile quickly.

What can I expect with professional teeth whitening?

Professional teeth whitening at Gables Family Dental is a painless procedure that guarantees amazing results. During your teeth whitening session, your dental specialist applies the bleaching gel to your teeth and then places the activation device over your teeth to accelerate the whitening process. Treatment usually takes less than an hour.

While results vary, your teeth whitening treatment may lighten your teeth up to eight shades. You may experience some gum sensitivity following your teeth whitening, but these side effects disappear within a few hours.

How long do the results from professional teeth whitening last?

How long your teeth stay bright and white depends on your oral hygiene and habits. With good oral care, including regular visits to the office for your cleanings and exams, your teeth whitening treatment may keep your teeth white for up to a year.

Nothing gives you more confidence than a flawless, pearly white smile. To schedule your teeth whitening, call Gables Family Dental today or request an appointment online.
