Why Should I Schedule Teeth Whitening In-Office?

There are three core benefits of having your teeth whitened in-office: results, duration, & safety. In-office whitening is proven to provide more dramatic results, that appear faster & last longer, and are less likely to cause oral issues when compared to at-home products. That is because your dentist will have access to stronger teeth whitening solution and equipment. Many options you will find at stores can only target the outermost layers of the tooth and can not correct deeper stains. And of course, the key benefit of doing anything at the dentist office, is that our team knows how to protect the health of your teeth and gums. Altogether your best options for teeth whitening are either to have your teeth whitened in-office by a dentist, or to get at-home teeth whitening kits from your dentist and make sure to get instructions on how to properly use them. If you are interested in teeth whitening or in any of cosmetic or restorative dental services, please give us a call. 

Are At-Home Teeth Whitening Kits Safe?

That depends on a few factors. Simply put, if you use teeth whitening kits that are recommended or sold by your dentist, and you use them according to their instructions, it will be safe. There are a variety of at-home options from gel-filled trays to sticky strips that you hold on your teeth. Whichever you pick there are two main pieces of advice everyone should follow: get a recommendation from your dentist and follow instructions. The best way to protect your teeth is to pay close attention to how long the teeth whitening product is supposed to be on your teeth, and how often you should use them. Another thing to look for is the ADA seal of approval. Just like with toothpaste, things supported by the ADA are good for your teeth and gum. 

Why Do My Teeth Feel Sensitive After Getting Them Whitened?

Some patients develop temporary sensitivity after having their teeth whitened or using at-home whitening products. The good news is, the sensitivity doesn’t necessarily mean there is any long-term damage or irreversible damage. That said, you should pay attention to that. If your teeth start to feel sensitive especially to temperature, this is a sign that you might be damaging your tooth enamel. Tell your dentist and avoid using teeth whitening treatments for a while. 

How Can I Prevent Staining?

Dental teeth staining can have many causes. The best way to protect your teeth from stains is the same way to protect your teeth from decay. Practice good flossing and brushing habits, avoid tobacco and other smoking products, limit coffee, wine, & soda, and don’t skip the dentist! That said, some level of staining is very common. Our teeth can stain over time or due to genetics. If you are interested in brightening your smile, we highly recommend mentioning it to your dentist. They likely either provide cosmetic dental services, can recommend another practice, or can recommend products to use.
