Teeth Whitening Q & A

What makes my teeth yellow?

Lots of different factors can cause teeth yellowing and discoloration. Certain medications, the stuff you drink and eat, and your age can all play a role. Beverages like red wine, coffee, and tea can leave surface stains on the enamel of your teeth and turn your teeth yellow. Major culprits also include smoking and tobacco.

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. When you follow product specifications and instructions, whitening your teeth is a harmless process. The professionals at Celebrity Smile offer teeth whitening treatments for safe, reliable results. You may prefer to get your teeth whitened in only one appointment if you have a busy schedule, or steadily over time with a take-home teeth whitening kit.

The teeth whitening solution is not dangerous to put in your mouth and on your teeth in either instance. You may, however, experience temporary tooth and gum sensitivity due to the bleaching agents.

What's involved in a teeth whitening in-office procedure?

The in-office teeth-whitening process is simple and can potentially make your teeth up to eight shades brighter in just one visit.* During your appointment, a highly-skilled Celebrity Smile team member will fit your mouth with upper and lower dental trays. These trays will contain the hydrogen peroxide whitening gel.

Your practitioner will then cover your lips and gums to protect them from the powerful whitening solution. They fill the trays with the bleaching solution and position a specialized bright light over your teeth. The light and bleach work in unison to whiten your teeth as you sit back and relax. This occurs with three 15-minute treatments in a single visit.

You wait comfortably between treatments until your final bleaching treatment is complete, then your dental expert applies a gel to your teeth to minimizes any sensitivity you may feel. Then it’s finished. In about two hours, you have whiter teeth and a dazzling smile.

The Celebrity Smile team can also provide take-home teeth-whitening kits for a less immediate approach to whitening teeth over a couple of weeks.

To learn more about in-office teeth-whitening treatments as well as the take-home options, call or schedule a consultation at Celebrity Smile today. Give yourself a smile you're proud to wear!
