Teeth Whitening Q & A

What are the benefits of teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening, also known as bleaching, can brighten your smile if you have a full set of healthy teeth with some discoloration and stains. If you’ve noticed changes in the appearance of your teeth from coffee or tea, smoking, or staining foods like berries, whitening can be especially effective.

Whitening agents are designed to change the shade of your natural enamel. Whitening may not be ideal if you’ve had significant restorative or cosmetic work. However, if you have only a few minor restorations, like fillings or veneers, Dr. Gayathri can replace them to match your whiter, brighter smile.

Why should I go to the dentist for teeth whitening?

There’s no shortage of products that claim to whiten your teeth, and you may wonder whether it’s worth the additional cost and commitment to come in to Trinity Dental Care for whitening. In short, professional teeth whitening gets better results than an at-home kit. There are a few reasons for this.

As a dentist, Dr. Gayathri has access to stronger, more concentrated bleaching agents than you can purchase yourself. She also customizes your treatment in a way that one-size-fits-all whitening products cannot match. This includes taking impressions of your mouth to construct whitening trays that fit your mouth perfectly, so the bleaching solution fully covers your teeth.

An in-office whitening treatment at Trinity Dental Care can transform your smile in just one session, which is far more quickly than any commercial product. Even if you elect to get an at-home treatment from Dr. Gayathri, you can expect far better results than what you can get with kits purchased at a drugstore.

Another advantage of going to the dentist for whitening is that you can have a full dental cleaning before you start the process, removing plaque, tartar, and stains. As a result, your new smile will be even brighter.

How long do the results of teeth whitening last?

The effects of teeth whitening are purely cosmetic. Though your teeth may look healthier, it’s no substitute for taking good care of your teeth. For the best dental health and longest-lasting results, continue to brush at least twice a day, floss at least once a day, and get cleanings at Trinity Dental Care at every six months.

In addition to proper care, you can avoid developing new stains on your teeth by reducing how much coffee and tea you drink, avoiding tobacco, and eating fewer acidic and stain-causing foods. With these good habits, the results of teeth whitening can last up to three years. To extend your whitening results, you may also get a touchup treatment at some point.
