Teeth Whitening Q & A

What are the causes of yellow teeth?

Lots of different factors can cause teeth yellowing and discoloration. The foods you eat and drink, certain medications, and age might all be contributing factors. Beverages like red wine, coffee, and tea can leave surface stains on the enamel of your teeth and turn your teeth yellow. Smoking and tobacco are also big culprits.

Eventually, the surface stains can get even more challenging to get rid of, because they soak deep into the enamel of your tooth to the dentin.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Yes. Whitening your teeth is a safe process when you follow product guidelines and instructions. The team at Steelecroft Dental offers professional whitening treatments for safe, effective results. You can get your teeth whitened in just one appointment or gradually with a take-home teeth whitening kit.

No matter which course of treatment you choose, the professional whitening solution is entirely safe to place on your teeth and in your mouth. The only discomfort you may experience is temporary tooth and gum sensitivity from the bleaching agents.

What's involved in an in-office whitening procedure?

A simple in-office teeth-whitening procedure could make your teeth up to eight shades brighter after just one appointment.* At your appointment, an experienced Steelecroft Dental team member will fit upper and lower dental trays into your mouth. These trays will be filled with a hydrogen peroxide whitening gel.

Your practitioner will then cover your lips and gums to protect them from the powerful whitening solution. After filling the trays with the bleaching solution, they position a specialized bright light over your teeth. You sit back and relax as the bleach and light work together to whiten your teeth for three 15-minute treatments in a single visit.

You wait comfortably between treatments until your final bleaching treatment is complete, then your dental expert covers your teeth in a post-treatment gel to reduce any sensitivity you might have after the whitening. Then you're done. You have whiter teeth and a gorgeous smile in about two hours.

The Steelecroft Dental team also offers at-home teeth-whitening kits for a more gradual approach to whitening teeth over a couple weeks.

Call or schedule a consultation at Steelecroft Dental to learn more about professional in-office teeth-whitening treatments as well as take-home whitening options. You deserve an outstanding smile.
