Teeth Whitening Q & A

How does teeth whitening work?

Over time, the hard outer enamel of your teeth gets worn down, which causes exposure of the darker inner layer, called dentin. Your teeth become more absorbent to what you put on them, making them more vulnerable to staining.

The team at Goodman Dental Center offers multiple teeth whitening options, including:

  • In-office bleaching
  • Custom-fit trays for bleaching at home
  • Prefabricated bleaching trays containing bleach to use at home

In-office teeth whitening is the quickest way to get white teeth. Your dentist uses special tools and active, professional-strength whitening gel that has the power to reach deep stains and help your teeth become eight shades lighter in an hour.

Your professional also uses devices and substances to protect your gums from the teeth whitening process during your procedure.

The at-home bleaching options are successful as well, but can take a few weeks to see results. 

Talk to your dentist to help you decide on the best option for you.

What causes teeth to be stained?

Your teeth become stained from various substances, as well as other factors, including:

  • Smoking
  • Chewing tobacco
  • Drinking red wine
  • Drinking coffee
  • Trauma
  • Genetics
  • Medications
  • Lack of dental hygiene

Regardless of the reason for your discolored or stained teeth, the experts at Goodman Dental Center can brighten your smile with their teeth whitening options.

Should I use teeth whitening from a store?

Store-bought teeth whitening kits don’t have customized trays to fit your mouth, which means the bleaching solution can leak out and cause irritation to your gums. Also, the bleaching agents aren’t as effective as what the professionals at Goodman Dental Center give you.

For successful results, consult with your dentist about your options.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Goodman Dental Center’s teeth whitening process is not only entirely safe, but it delivers successful results. 

Though you may experience temporary side effects that include tooth sensitivity and mild irritation, they subside within just a few days.

Whether you choose Goodman Dental Center’s in-office treatment or take home their whitening kit with customized trays and bleach, you can be confident that your experience won’t hurt or damage your teeth or mouth.
