Teeth Whitening Q & A

What causes yellow teeth?

Lots of different factors can cause teeth yellowing and discoloration. Certain medications, age, and the things you drink and eat can all contribute. The enamel on your teeth can get surface stains from drinks like red wine, tea, and coffee, and this can make your teeth appear yellow. Smoking and tobacco are also big culprits.

Over time, these surface stains can reach beneath the enamel of your tooth to its dentin, which makes the stain even harder to get out.

Is it safe to whiten your teeth?

Certainly. Teeth whitening is not harmful if you comply with product directions and guidelines. The professionals at Dentistry at Greenway 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.

No matter which course of treatment you choose, the whitening solution is entirely safe to place on your teeth and in your mouth. You may, however, experience temporary tooth and gum sensitivity due to the bleaching agents.

What is the in-office procedure like?

The in-office teeth-whitening process is simple and can potentially make your teeth at least two shades brighter.* During your visit, a professional Dentistry at Greenway team member will fit lower and upper dental trays in your mouth. These trays will hold the hydrogen peroxide whitening solution.

Your dental professional will cover your gums and lips to protect them from the solution. After cleaning your teeth, filling the trays with the bleaching solution. The whitening gel is activated with regular light, as opposed to blue light, positioned overhead. The light and bleach work in unison to whiten your teeth as you sit back and relax. This occurs with four 15-minute treatments in a single visit.

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. That’s all. Your teeth are whiter in about two hours, and your smile shows it.

If you'd rather whiten your teeth gradually over the course of a few weeks, ask the Dentistry at Greenway for an at-home teeth-whitening kit.
