Teeth Whitening Q & A
What are the causes of yellow teeth?
A variety of factors lead to your teeth turning yellow. Certain medications, age, and the things you drink and eat can all contribute. Surface stains on the enamel of your teeth from drinks like tea, coffee, and red wine, can make your teeth appear yellowish. Major culprits also include smoking and tobacco.
Eventually, these surface stains can become even harder to remove because they go beneath the enamel to the dentin of your tooth.
Is teeth whitening safe?
Definitely. When you follow product specifications and instructions, whitening your teeth is a harmless process. The professionals at Trident Dental offer whitening treatments for safe, reliable results. You can decide to have your teeth whitened in one office appointment or gradually over time with a take-home whitening kit.
In either instance, the whitening solution is not harmful to put in your mouth and on your teeth. The only discomfort you may experience is temporary tooth and gum sensitivity from the bleaching agents.
How does the in-office procedure work?
The in-office teeth-whitening process is simple and can potentially make your teeth up to eight shades brighter in just one visit.* At your appointment, one of the experienced Trident Dental team members fits upper and lower dental trays into your mouth. These trays will hold the bleaching solution.
Next, your practitioner covers your gums and lips to protect them from the solution. They fill the trays with the bleaching solution and position a specialized bright light over your teeth. The light and bleach work in unison to whiten your teeth as you sit back and relax. This occurs with three 15-minute treatments in a single visit.
Between these 15-minute treatments, you wait comfortably, and following the final bleaching treatment, your dental expert applies a gel to your teeth to minimize any post-treatment sensitivity you experience. Then it’s finished. In about two hours, you have whiter teeth and a dazzling smile.
If you'd rather whiten your teeth gradually over the course of a few weeks, ask the Trident Dental for an at-home teeth-whitening kit.
