Teeth Whitening Q & A
What are the causes of yellow teeth?
Many factors contribute to teeth yellowing. The foods you eat and drink, certain medications, and age might all be contributing factors. Surface stains on the enamel of your teeth from drinks like tea, coffee, and red wine, can make your teeth appear yellowish. Big contributors include tobacco and smoking, too.
Eventually, the surface stains can get even more challenging to get rid of, because they soak deep into the enamel of your tooth to the dentin.
Are you sure teeth whitening isn't dangerous?
Absolutely. When you follow product specifications and instructions, whitening your teeth is a harmless process. The team at Dr. Darj Dental provides whitening treatments for safe, satisfying results. You can get your teeth whitened in just one appointment or gradually with a take-home teeth whitening kit.
In either instance, the whitening solution is not harmful to put in your mouth and on your teeth. Note that the bleaching agents may cause some non-permanent gum and tooth sensitivity, but this is the only discomfort you might feel.
What is the in-office procedure like?
The in-office teeth-whitening process is simple and can potentially make your teeth up to eight shades brighter in just one visit.* During your appointment, Dr. Darj will fit your mouth with upper and lower dental trays. These trays will contain the bleaching solution.
Next, Dr. Darj covers your gums and lips to protect them from the solution. The trays are filled with the whitening gel and a unique LED lamp is positioned over your teeth. In a single visit, you sit back and relax for three 15-minute blocks while the light and bleach interact to whiten your teeth.
You wait comfortably between treatments until your final bleaching treatment is complete, then your dental expert covers your teeth in a post-treatment gel to reduce any sensitivity you might have after the whitening. Then it’s finished. Your teeth are whiter, and your smile is brighter in about two hours.
Dr. Darj also offers at-home teeth-whitening kits for a more gradual approach to whitening teeth over a couple weeks.
