What is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure that uses bleaching agents to remove stains and discolorations from the surface of teeth. The most common cause of stains is consuming particular food and drinks, such as coffee, tea, red wine, and soda. Tobacco use and aging can also cause tooth discoloration. Teeth whitening can improve the appearance of stains caused by these factors and other causes.

The Teeth Whitening Process

Getting teeth whitening done professionally is, fortunately, a simple process!

Consultation:

To ensure teeth whitening is right for you, Dr. Young will do an oral examination of your smile.
This consultation will help Dr. Young know if teeth whitening will work for you and not cause any problems.

Teeth Whitening:

Once Dr. Young has confirmed that your teeth whitening is right for you, he will begin whitening your smile. He will apply a protective gel to safeguard the gums from the whitening agent.
Once he knows your gums are safe, he will use a high-concentration peroxide gel directly to the teeth, often activated by special light or heat sources to enhance its whitening effect. This application process may be repeated several times within the same appointment to achieve the desired results. The entire procedure generally takes around 60 to 90 minutes, offering immediate and noticeable improvements in tooth color.

Teeth Whitening Aftercare

After teeth whitening, it is essential to maintain good habits like oral hygiene care and avoiding teeth staining products. Excellent ways to keep your new smile include:

Ensure you are brushing your teeth twice daily with fluoride toothpaste and are flossing once daily. Use mouthwash once daily to help further eliminate germs and bad breath.
Avoiding certain teeth staining products will help ensure your smile’s long-lasting results. Products to avoid are coffee, tea, red wine, and soda.
We may provide a whitening kit to enhance your smile at home. These customized trays are an excellent way to do some touch-ups when necessary for your new whitened smile. It is essential to note that our custom at-home teeth whitening is also more effective than store-bought products. With our at-home touch-up kit, you can guarantee you will continue to see great results for your brightened smile.
