Teeth Whitening Q & A

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening at Wellness Dental Care uses advanced teeth whitening gel and trays to make discolored teeth many shades whiter after a single in-office treatment. Whiter teeth can improve the appearance of your smile and give you the self-confidence you deserve. 

How does teeth whitening work?

Teeth whitening gel breaks up stains on your teeth, making them appear whiter. The teeth whitening process is painless and straightforward but can produce dramatic whitening results in as little as 45 minutes. Wellness Dental Care offers in-office teeth whitening and professional-strength home teeth whitening options, depending on your lifestyle and preferences.

What causes teeth staining?

Common reasons your teeth may become stained include:

  • Certain medications
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Colas
  • Red wine
  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Dark juices
  • Popsicles
  • Soy sauce
  • Tomato sauce
  • Other foods and drinks
  • Older age
  • Smoking

Despite your best efforts to achieve exceptional at-home oral hygiene habits, teeth staining can still occur over time. That’s why Wellness Dental Care offers in-office and professional-strength at-home whitening treatments that match your needs.

What should I expect during teeth whitening?

You rest in a comfortable chair during teeth whitening at Wellness Dental Care. Your dentist applies whitening gel in trays over your teeth while you relax. They may use a special LED light to speed up the whitening process. After each treatment, you can expect immediate whitening results and resume your normal daily routine immediately. 

If you whiten your teeth at home using whitening kits provided by the Wellness Dental Care team, you may need several treatments to achieve the same results as in-office whitening. Periodic maintenance whitening treatments help keep your teeth whiter long-term. 

How can I keep my teeth white?

Teeth staining is often inevitable over time, but you can do several things at home to minimize staining. Use whitening mouthwash if your dentist recommends it, brush your teeth after meals, and see the Wellness Dental Care team every six months for professional dental cleanings. Don’t smoke, and limit or avoid foods and drinks that stain.
