Teeth Whitening Q & A

Why Do People Have Their Teeth Whitened?

Teeth whitening is the most common cosmetic dental procedure in the United States. A bright white smile is a sign of health and youth, but many of the foods we consume, aging, and other habits cause the teeth to become yellow and discolored. The most common causes of dental staining include:

  • Genetics
  • Antibiotics
  • Age
  • Changes in your enamel
  • Tooth decay
  • Root canal issues
  • External tooth discoloration caused by factors such as certain foods, coffee, tea, and tobacco

How Are Your Take-Home Kits Different Than What I Can Buy in a Drugstore?

The at-home bleaching kits provided by the dentists at Round Grove Family Dentistry are custom made for each patient. The trays are form-fitted to each person's mouth and tooth shape to ensure the whitening agent reaches all the surfaces of the teeth for results that are more consistent and more effective. The at-home bleaching kits are more effective than those available over the counter but are gentle enough to wear for an hour or more for 7 to 10 days. And finally, before your whitening treatment, one of our team members will examine your teeth for any signs of damage that would need to be corrected prior to whitening to help ensure the best possible results.

What Happens During the In-Office Teeth Whitening Procedure?

Before booking the appointment for your teeth whitening, one of our dentists will thoroughly clean and prepare your teeth, examining them for signs of decay. Any traces of decay or damage needs to be treated before the whitening treatment begins. Once the patient’s teeth are ready, a dentist will apply a chemically activated bleaching gel that is made from hydrogen peroxide to the teeth. The patient’s lips are held back with a soft plastic retainer to ensure that each tooth is evenly covered with the gel and that the soft tissues are protected. After about 40 minutes, the gel is cleaned away and the lip retainer is taken out. Patients enjoy a brighter and whiter smile immediately.
