Professional Teeth Whitening – Why It’s the Better Choice?

There are many reasons as to why your teeth become discolored; aging, certain food and drinks, smoking, etc. The teeth whitening kits that you purchase at the store can be effective, but in actuality, they don’t give the best results and they can be harmful to your teeth and gums.

Getting your teeth whitened professionally is the most effective and safest way to brighten your smile.

There are two different treatments that most dentists use to whiten your teeth.

  • High concentrations of hydrogen peroxide gel – this is applied by a syringe.
  • Hydrogen peroxide is applied by a high-intensity light or laser. This light is produced by a device that sits directly outside of your mouth.

Both of these methods are effective, but the results vary from person to person. Book a consultation and talk to someone on Dr. Jennings’s team about what kind of results you can expect from our teeth whitening procedure.

FAQ About Teeth Whitening

  • Is professional teeth whitening a safe procedure?
    • Absolutely!  A big difference between over-the-counter kits and what a dentist uses is the chemical concentration of peroxide. It is also important to not overdo teeth whitening. Overdoing it can lead to enamel loss and can harm the teeth over time. Talk to Dr. Jennings to learn more about the teeth whitening procedure.
  • Am I a candidate for teeth whitening?
    • Not everyone should get their teeth whitened, even if you’re an adult with discolored teeth. If you have tooth/gum hypersensitivity, deep and intractable stains, or your teeth have become transparent with age.  If you have any of these issues, talk to Dr. Jennings about other cosmetic procedures that can help improve your smile.
  • Will teeth whitening last forever?
    • Unfortunately, teeth whitening does not last forever. If done professionally, it will last for a good amount of time. Depending on how you take care of your teeth after treatment, whitening can last almost 10 years.
  • How can I make teeth whitening last?
    • Good oral hygiene should be continually practiced, but here are some additional habits to include in your daily routine:
      • Brush your teeth after every meal
      • Avoid beverages that are dyed – tea, coffee, soda, etc.
      • Go to the dentists for regular teeth cleaning appointments
      • Try not to use mouthwashes that are dyed
