Teeth Whitening Q & A

What is tooth whitening?

Tooth whitening refers to the process of bleaching your teeth to break up the concentration of stains and discoloration, giving your teeth a whiter appearance. The results are transformative, giving you a smile you’ll be proud to show off.

If you’re interested in brightening your smile, a professional tooth whitening with Dr. Daneshvar is a safe, effective option. It’s cost-effective and convenient, taking less than an hour in the office.

Professional tooth whitening provides much better results than over-the-counter options because professional whitening agents have a higher concentration of hydrogen peroxide, which makes the results more noticeable and longer lasting.

What causes tooth stains and discoloration?

The most common causes of tooth stains and discolorations are from certain food and drinks you consume. Some examples of stain-causing foods and beverages include:

  • Coffee
  • Dark tea
  • Red wine
  • Mustard
  • Berries
  • Tomato sauce

Another cause of teeth discoloration is your natural aging process. Over time, your teeth’s enamel wears down, revealing the dentin, the yellowish layer beneath.

Certain illnesses, medications, and tobacco use — smoking and chewing — can also lead to stains and discoloration.

How does tooth whitening work?

In-office tooth whitening is a quick, safe procedure. It takes less than an hour and involves no downtime so you can even make an appointment for a quick touch up to your smile during your lunch break.

Dr. Daneshvar prepares a tray that’s lined with a powerful hydrogen peroxide-based whitening agent. The whitening solution goes to work on your teeth fast as you bite into the tray. It breaks up the concentration of tooth stains, making your teeth appear whiter.

Strategically positioned LED whitening lamps may be used to accelerate results, brightening your smile by several shades in less than an hour.  

Right after your appointment, you might feel some slight tooth sensitivity. This should subside shortly, typically within a few hours of the procedure.

An alternative option is a take-home whitening kit. Dr. Daneshvar can provide you with a set of trays that you line with gel and wear in the comfort of your own home. With this option, in just a few weeks you can achieve similar results to that of an in-office whitening procedure.

How long do tooth whitening results last?

Tooth whitening results should last 1-2 years, if not longer. The key to maintaining your whitening results is continuing to brush and floss diligently and coming in for regular dental cleanings. Also, you may want to try to cut down on stain-causing foods and drinks.
