Teeth Whitening Q & A

Why do teeth become discolored?

A number of outside factors and certain substances can stain your teeth, including:

  • Genetics
  • Trauma
  • Foods and drinks, such as red wine or coffee
  • Tobacco use
  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Certain diseases, such as tooth decay or thin enamel

Some medications can also cause teeth to change color over time.

What teeth whitening options are available?

There are multiple teeth whitening options available, including:

  • Whitening toothpaste
  • Over-the-counter gels
  • Take-home professional whitening strips and kits
  • In-office whitening laser treatments

Professional at-home teeth whitening treatments can provide great results for stains that are more superficial. Stains that are deeply discolored usually require professional treatments for the best outcome.

Other professional teeth whitening treatments should be performed in-office under dental supervision. Dr. Preston-Hill offers proven-successful cosmetic dentistry services and teeth whitening options to assist you in achieving your desired shade to suit your complexion and smile.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Preston-Hill can help you decide the best teeth whitening option for you.

How does teeth whitening work?

Many teeth whitening treatments involve the use of bleaching chemicals to break the stains into smaller particles. Your teeth look whiter because there’s less concentration of stained color.

Laser technology utilizes special laser light to break up stains. Lasers are typically used along with hydrogen peroxide gel.

Are professional teeth whitening treatments more effective than over-the-counter kits?

Professional teeth whitening treatments are more effective for teeth whitening and give you the knowledge and experience of a qualified dental professional specializing in cosmetic dentistry. Professional teeth whitening treatments can be customized to suit you with an array of white shades to choose from.

These treatments yield long-lasting results and are well-tolerated. There aren’t any side effects of professional teeth whitening, other than some mild tooth sensitivity. Professional teeth whitening methods can reach deeper stains and are specially designed to be used by a qualified dental professional.
