TEETH WHITENING

Perfect smile, perfect you.

TEETH WHITENING PROCEDURE

Brushing and flossing are everyday ways to keep your bright smile, white and healthy. Even so, if you can feel that your smile lacks brightness or is more yellow than it used to be, you are not alone. When the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry asked people what they would most like to improve about their smile, the most common response was whiter teeth. The American Association of Orthodontists also found that almost 90% of patients requested teeth whitening procedure.

Over time, your teeth can go from white to not-so-bright for a number of reasons:

Food and Drink

Coffee, tea and red wine are some of the main reasons why you could lose your white smile. What do they have in common? Pigments of intense color called chromogens that adhere to the white and outer part of your tooth.

Tobacco Use

One of the effects of smoking is staining on the teeth due to the nicotine and tar in the tobacco. It can make your teeth yellow in a very short time, and heavy smokers often complain that their teeth are almost brown after years of smoking. Often, smokers will have certain teeth that become darker than others due to their method of inhalation.

Age

As one ages, the outer layer of tooth enamel wears out and exposes the natural yellow color of the dentine. Also with aging, the tooth establishes more dentin, which decreases the size of the pulp. This reduces the translucency of the tooth, which gives it a darker appearance.

Trauma

If you have been hit in the mouth, your tooth may change color because it reacts to an injury by depositing more dentin, which is a darker layer under the enamel.

Talk to your dentist before starting. If you are a candidate, there are four ways to put the shine back in your smile:

Stain Removal Toothpastes

All toothpastes help eliminate surface stains by the action of mild abrasives that clean the teeth. Look for whitening toothpastes that have earned the ADA Acceptance Seal for teeth stain removal (indicated on the package). These toothpastes have additional polishing agents that are safe for your teeth and provide stain removal effectiveness. Unlike teeth bleach, these types of products accepted by ADA do not change the color of the teeth because they can only remove surface stains.

In-Office Bleaching 

This procedure is called armchair whitening and usually only requires a visit to the office. At Luxe Dental we apply a protective gel on your gums or a rubber protector to protect your gums. The bleach is applied to the teeth.

At-Home Bleaching from Luxe Dental

At Luxe Dental we provide you with a custom made whitening tray in the home. In this case, we will give you instructions on how to place the bleaching solution in the tray and for how long. This may be a preferred option if you feel more comfortable whitening in your own home at a slower pace, but still with our the guidance. Whitening outside of the office can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks.

Over-the-Counter Bleaching Products

You can see different options online or at your local supermarket, such as toothpastes or whitening strips to whiten teeth. The concentration of bleaching agent in these products is lower than what your dentist would use in the office. If you are thinking of using an over-the-counter whitening kit, discuss the options with your dentist and look for one with the ADA Seal of Acceptance. That means that it has been proven to be safe and effective to whiten teeth.

Common questions and answers about Teeth Whitening2019-06-30T22:57:39-04:00

The conclusive answer is no, teeth whitening gel will NOT damage or harm your tooth enamel. … In order to achieve successful whitening, the product flows through the enamel tubules and begins to lighten the underlying stained tissue. Whitening products can cause temporary tooth sensitivity.

From restorations of dental implants to partial or bridges, we offer a wide variety of options to replace your teeth with the greatest possible functionality and comfort. If you think you need a dental extraction, please contact our office to schedule a consultation!

The effects of whitening are thought to last up to three years. However, this will vary from person to person. The effect is less likely to last as long if you smoke, or eat or drink products that can stain your teeth. Ask your dental team for their opinion before you start the treatment.

No, teeth whitening isn’t permanent. It can last from a few months to up to 3 years, but this varies from person to person. Generally, the whitening effect won’t last as long if you smoke or drink red wine, tea or coffee, which can all stain your teeth.

As of 2018, In-office teeth whitening cost $450-850 for two-three hour visit (on average) nationwide. In one short and convenient appointment, you can have white teeth that will make you feel and look great. Professional teeth whitening service in our lauderhill dental office is done by using a potent bleaching agent.

The most commonly observed side effects with these peroxide-based bleaching agents are tooth sensitivity and occasional irritation of soft tissues in the mouth(oral mucosa), particularly the gumsTooth sensitivity often occurs during early stages of bleaching treatment.

Yes, it is. You will not damage any other restorations you have had done to your mouth. That means existing fillings, bindings, bridges, veneers, and crowns will be unharmed by any whitening you have done. However, keep in mind that whitening your teeth may make them different colors than these other restorations.

The heat can potentially harm the gums and cause tooth sensitivity if certain precautions are not taken. … Other products that do not contain a hydrogen peroxide bleaching agent (like many whitening toothpastes) will only treat surface stains, but there is little to no risk for tooth sensitivity or pain.
